We are pleased to share a recently published poem in Alimentum Journal by Kelly Morse (Poetry 2012). Her poem “Phở bò Hà Nội” was inspired by a pho shop in Hanoi, Vietnam named Phở Thìn 13 Lò Đúc. Kelly lived in Hanoi, Vietnam for two years, and recently returned there on a Robert Pinsky Global Fellowship.
Kelly Morse graduated from our MFA program in poetry in 2012. Her work has appeared in Side B Magazine, PoetsArtists, Conversations Across Borders and elsewhere. Currently, she is working on a series of poems that explores linguistic and world-view gaps between Eastern and Western cultures.
