This (e-Chap) Book Will Change Your Life - Chasing Pigeons Makes Me Feel More Powerful by Kendra Grant Malone.

So we read, and then re-read the new e-chapbook Chasing Pigeons Makes Me Feel More Powerful by TBWCYL, Inc. favorite Kendra Grant Malone, which left us feeling melancholy and happy all at once. Melancholy because while there is much provocation in Malone's work, and in these poems especially, that provocation is wrapped around pain and loss, which provides a buffer for both writer and reader, but never lets either get too far away from the feelings being protected. Still, there is happiness as well, because for the writer there are also moments of joy, recognition and love, and for the reader the realization that what you are reading is so moving and interesting it demands to be read and re-read.
