A haunting chapbook of flash fiction about a man documenting the last things he sees before going blind. Both the original Spanish text by Mexican author Miguel Lupi n and the English translation by Colorado Poet Laureate Joseph Hutchison are included. "Hoy supe que me quedar a 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 im genes. *** 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.
