Yeah, Write #390- Death in the Jungle

Death in the Jungle

The corner was busy, always busy.  The same grimy business of survival. Cars passed, girls and not girls on the stroll, bindles and cash got passed. Things are the same forever but, folks’ bodies remember it all. It was business as usual in the jungle.  In the bright of daylight when the shadows hide nothing, shots echo.  

But when they all ducked, nothing was there.

    Your voice is so clear here. Katie’s right – it almost reads like a poem. I really like the sense that this story takes place over time, that it’s an ongoing thing, not a one-time haunting, which you underscore with “folks’ bodies remember it all.”
