Poem – Savagery

File:Pigeons taking off.jpg




While I understand

it is a savagery

that overtime will be


though not


and that it grows from


and not


I still find it terrifyingly poignant

to watch a shrieking toddler

chase a pigeon

with such ferocious determination


as if

were he able

he would catch each of us

and crush us


those sticky

little fingers.

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.
