Joseph A. Pinto

barflypoet & author of dark fiction


spinnin’ the greatest hits from the barflypoet yesterday and today!




it hasn’t escaped her


sometimes she gets lost

in the cool shade beneath her trees

eclipsed in the tales of two men

one she wakes to every morn

the other still attached

an ethereal cord

from many years grown long.


she wouldn’t trade her life

for the lure of anything else

but on occasion

when her past crosses the sun

her soul gives a little shiver

her toes curl into

the velvety dew of her lawn.
