“Práxedes” – Short story, in Apogee Journal, Issue 09, June 2017, Manhattan, New York City. From introduction to issue: “Being seen—or not—becomes a necessary politic to meditate on in an auto-play era that, via its broadcast, strips bodies of color of agency and makes the pain of marginalized people a theatrical erotic in their unconsenting visibility. Thus, what is said in these pages is as valuable as that which remains unspoken, and what is seen must guide us to think of who remains invisible within image-making, either by creative choice, or by social force beyond.”

It was translated into English for this issue.”
