Bernardo Wade

A writer-artist from New Orleans, Bernardo Wade tries at poems and rides his bike around Bloomington, Indiana, because Indiana University funds his present period of studying with others. He currently serves as associate editor of Indiana Review. Recently awarded the 2021 Puerto del Sol Poetry Prize, he has words in or forthcoming in Crazyhorse, Black Warrior Review, Guernica, and elsewhere.

Requiem for Guy

After Katrina, we broke / into a FEMA trailer, a haven / filled with burn holes scattered / like little graves.
