Joseph A. Pinto

barflypoet & author of dark fiction


 

banalities

 

repelled our lips turn unfamiliar
a thousand contradictions despite the smiles
an axiom birthed
reconstructed and blue;
warned we were of this indefinable
sense of decomposition
now here we are reduced to
simplified semblances of self.
