A haunting chapbook of flash fiction about a man documenting the last things he sees before going blind.

Hoy supe que me quedaría ciego…Por eso he comenzado a escribir: para enjaular las formas, encadenar los colores; evitar que los nudos torpes de mi futura ceguera dejen escapar a las imágenes.


Today I knew I’d end up blind…This is why I’m starting to write: to cage the shapes, chain the colors; to keep the clumsy knots of my future blindness from letting the images slip away.
