Joseph A. Pinto

barflypoet & author of dark fiction


first class


it’s like all those men in her life

have considered her to be a letter

something to hold

to fold, to stamp

something to send off

without courtesy of the label

handle with care.


some men just do that.


others, rare few others

stand vigil at the mailbox

waiting on the letter

that will forever change their life.
