Olatunde Osinaike is a Nigerian-American poet originally from the West Side of Chicago. He is Black, still learning and eager nevertheless. An alumnus of Vanderbilt University, his most recent work has appeared, or is forthcoming, in Hobart Magazine, Apogee Journal, HEArt Online Journal, Up the Staircase Quarterly, and FreezeRay Poetry, among other publications. He is probably off rewatching The Office right now for the nth time, but you can find him on Twitter and Instagram at @tundelasoul, when he’s not being as much of an introvert.
