Timothy Murphy

Timothy Murphy hunts and farms in the Dakotas.



We glide into the room to sit
In high-backed chairs and slide the plate
Across a line. We shift a bit

To face our food, lurch, hesitate,
Suspended at a table where
Fixed, unconvenable we wait.

Inseparable, this weight we bear
Yet stubbornly we subdivide,
Recalculate the other’s share

When Morning Comes

When Morning Comes


Corridors is a collection of visually refreshing, and literary accomplished poems. Samantha Le, in her debut effort, exhibits a vibrant confidence, alluding to a poetic preoccupation of the fist order. The poems are self-referential but compassionate, objective but personal. The prose is reminiscent of Paz’s Agulia y Sol, Dario’s Azul, and Rimbaud’s Illuminations in its tendency to expose the poetic and mystical side of intersubjective human experiences. The work, as a whole, forms a loose narrative of coming-of-age poetry.

Little Sister Left Behind

This novel is a fictional memoir of a family's struggles through post-war Vietnam and their journey in search of a better life on foreign soil. It is the story of wounded pride, as personified by Father, silent resentment, as depicted by the conventional Mother, and the fragility of innocence, as embodied by our young heroine. The novel takes us from the private struggles of familial bonds to the public crumbling of old traditions. This novel tells the universal tales of all immigrants in the United States through the eyes of a young girl.
