Prose, chapbook, 32 pages, from bottlecap features.

How do you process the parts of yourself that weren’t allowed to be? In por la sombrita, explore a coming of age through fractured glimpses that form a whole and an imperfect family life yearning for connection. Using a combination of written pieces and companion photographs, this chapbook explores a childhood in the dominican republic while being queer, and the moments that form an individual. Disjointed and at points bittersweet, pushing the stream-of-consciousness to its limit. Find the pieces to build a window into the things that connect us beyond our personal lived experiences. The line of the comfortable and the uncomfortable blurs in order to show lived experiences, not as a perfect recollection but as an imperfect segment of a larger whole.
