Alyssa Morhardt-Goldstein

We like possibility – their hazy shape, a wrist in detail, and what we imagine.
A sketch of a woman, we wanted her to have dark hair and only part of a shoulder, a face. In the
bathroom subway tile mirror, who ever wants the story whole. We want whatever light we throw on her.

Alyssa Morhardt-Goldstein is a seven-year transplant to NYC. Selected by Matthea Harvey as The New School’s 2012 Chapbook Contest winner in poetry, she does book design for Patasola Press, and worked as the VP of design and program development for The Poetry Society of New York. She received her MFA in poetry from The New School, and her BS in classical voice and literature from Mannes Conservatory. Her press, myhorsemyhound, publishes poetry through embroidery and letterpress. Visit her Tumblr page.
