Peleliu

Dromineer Literary Festival (IRE)
2015

… Someone killed Inocencio once, in the coconut groves of Peleliu. Just a boy, but strong, squeezed the air right out of his body, and the last thing to shut down was scent. He still smelled the coconut grove when they woke him in the hospital and told him they’d taken Ngesebus. Still smelled it sometimes even now.
