Route 7 Review - Page 13

poet in Merthyr Tydfil, Wales, who unpins his heart from his sleeve and presses it between the pages of his Deaths and Entrances, unaware that, at the same moment, a young girl in Casper, Wyoming, becomes convinced that the stars out her bedroom window on that late-August night are pinpricks, are marble eyes, firefolk or swift horses, and that, god help us, she must make it her life to tell us so. Wade lives, teaches, and writes in Salt Lake City. For a good time, he enjoys wandering the Wasatch Mountains and playing with his grandchildren. His poems have appeared or are forthcoming in Green Mountains Review, Cimarron Review, Best New Poets, New Ohio Review, Western Humanities Review, Rattle, Chicago Quarterly Review, Raleigh Review, Reunion: The Dallas Review, Pembroke Magazine, and New Orleans Review, among others. A full-length collection of his poems, What Is Mine, was published by Aldrich Press in January of 2015.
