Joseph A. Pinto

barflypoet & author of dark fiction


unintended consequence


he met a girl

loved the hell out of her


they found him guilty of killing

all the best she had ever shared


so he consumed

what remained of her


saving her heart for last

hoping she would beat within him


to the end.
