A light rain
falls on the jungle
cleaning the leaves of the oily dust. A million shades of green glistening.
The howls and screaks of the monkeys
get drowned out by a passing dump truck.
The mournful creeking drone of a pumping unit sucking the vital fluids out of the earth like a giant mosquito. Through the miasma, swarms of them attack.
The reek of Durian pervades the air. The jungle veneer is ripped off by the clanking dozers. Paw prints of a solitary tiger lead into the thicket to a deadend.
RRRRRRRrrrrrrrrr RRRRRRRrRRRRRrrrrrr is the endless sound coming from the depths of the jungle, or what is left of it.
The majestic trees are guillotined and dragged away to become plywood.
Desperate men with staring beady eyes watch for the weak or unfortunate along the dangeous roads.
