Salud at Misfits’ Miscellany


I’m thrilled to have my poem Salud over at one of the coolest zines, Misfits’ Miscellany. 

It’s about my friends Oscar and Aida who live in Madrid and last Christmas came to visit Jay and me in New York.

Patos, Aida y Ally

Te echo  mucho de menos, Oscar (Patos) y Aida. We’ll toast in Plaza de Santa Ana again soon.

Many thanks to Misfits’ Miscellany.

By Ally Malinenko

I live in Brooklyn which is good except when it’s not which is horrid. I’ve been writing for awhile, and have some stuff published and some stuff not. I don’t like when people refer to pets as their children and I can’t resist a handful of cheez-its when offered. I have a burning desire to go to Antarctica, specifically to the South Pole so I can see where Robert Falcon Scott died. I like to read books. I like to write stories and poems. I even wrote some novels. You can read them.


      1. I still feel a lump in my throat when I read this poem. It’s almost a year since we went there. A year! Shit! Beautiful poem, Ally, as always. I miss you like crazy
