My (short) hybrid CNF has just been published by the prestigious New Delta Review. NDR is a journal ran by graduate students in the MFA Program in Creative Writing at Louisiana State University.

Long story short, the piece is about a few of the departed in my family: my great-aunt, my grandfather, my father. Here is the picture that inspired it, a genuine family heritage that represents my grand-grandparents and my grandmother Sofia:
