Joseph A. Pinto

barflypoet & author of dark fiction


an excerpt from my new collection





when i was a little boy

my mother told me

thunder was only the sound

of angels bowling overhead

so when i hear it now

i laugh with the thought

we’re all on one big alley

wearing miscolored shoes.


listen to this poem
