Volume 123, No. 11December, 2023

From time to time, Allegro publishes poetry written by our staff members and contributing writers.

This month, we present two poems, which you can download by clicking on the links below. (We publish the poems as PDF’s to preserve the original formating of the authors.)

“Her Name Was Music” by Melissa Chucaralao

“In the Audacity of Survival – for World AIDS Day*” by John Pietaro

(*Editor’s note: World AIDS Day is commemorated each December 1.)
