Miguel Sanchez

Miguel Sanchez Obituaries and bios are difficult to write. Manifestos are easy. Hybrids like creative nonfiction, lyric essay, or haibun are tricky. I consider “Sumpter” somewhere between a lyric essay and creative nonfiction, a kind of a day poem. I more likely than not got Parkinson’s disease from using TCE while in Coast Guard Aviation. I was an active member of IATSE Local 728 as an Assistant Chief Lighting Technician for 20 years. I have been writing since the age of seven. I have a son, grandson, and daughter in-law in Chicago. My father is 90 and my mother passed. I am older than my brother and sister; one each. May “Sumpter” give insight and understanding to those unfamiliar with the complexity of Parkinson’s. I am deeply honored for my work to be published herein.
