Rigel Portales

Rigel Portales is a 19-year-old Filipino poet afraid of disappearing. His government loves killing young people like him. Some of his friends are younger than him, and more dissenting. When this is all over, he wants to cook dinner for them, all their favorite dishes, altogether. As long as he’s still here, you can find him on his Twitter account @rijwrites where he writes to preserve and preserves to write.
