playful elephants - riverbed marshes

habitation for summering mists, mangroves

river boat journeys sailing past abandoned villages

we were forbidden to dig for minerals along the coast for fear of inciting the ire of the remaining natives.

snatches of sounds from the beechwood
distant emanations further out
impressions of winding tobacco roads
red clay cinnabar
deep soil, old sediment
hidden caches of fossils, patient and silent

last embers
a music like falling asleep on a motorway
