Joseph A. Pinto

barflypoet & author of dark fiction


again i hear it


again i hear it

it’s more than i can bear

the crescendo rising

words faster than the last

a stream of consciousness

washing all in its path

yet no matter how i plead

that the damage is beyond repair

the rant rolls on

oblivious to the smallest survivor

you drown.
