Poetry, chapbook, 28 pages, from Bottlecap Features.
Finally Asleep tells the story of growth, in all its moments of beauty and discomfort. Following the rhythm of breath, the debut collection by Allison Murphy is a testament to change and to what's possible when we trust ourselves enough to become ourselves.
Deeply personal and deeply relatable, Allison's poems waver between desperate searching and liberated finding. They culminate with an exhale, the collection itself softening into a long-awaited state of vulnerability and trust.
