Sergio Troncoso
“There were three eighteen-wheelers backed up against a huge warehouse. Three metal ramps dropped from the back of these trucks more or less in the direction of the warehouse. The warehouse itself was like a cavern: dark, eerily quiet, and spooky. The air was thick inside, as if the shadows were somewhere between being nothing and becoming black gelatin. The cages and the smell. That's what I noticed first. Hundreds and hundreds of small cages. All in neat rows. Planks on the floor separating each row of cages. And a horrible smell of feathers and chicken shit and dust everywhere, this impossibly thick air! A stench that made me gag at first. Yet, after the first hour, I didn't smell it anymore. I also remember that, before we started, when the warehouse was quiet, the feathers and pieces of feathers dangling from the wire mesh seemed even delicate.

We were to unload the semis and carry the chickens to the warehouse and put them into cages, two in each cage. We were to unload and carry chickens.”
Sergio Troncoso, The Last Tortilla: and Other Stories

Raquel Cepeda
“Foisting an identity on people rather than allowing them the freedom and space to create their own is shady.”
Raquel Cepeda, Bird of Paradise: How I Became Latina
