The woman from the Philippines
She and her husband a European man of middle years
Had a clearing in the jungle.
Built their own bamboo cabin raised pigs and chicken
Also, vegetables which the sold at the local market.
She sent many photos of their daily life
Then came the long silence I heard nothing more
What had happened?
Now my imagination speaks: he had died and she
Surrounded by hostile men, not interested in her
Farm but to sleep with her.
She sold the farmstead went to live in Cebu and
Waits for an elderly man ready to share in her dreams.
Since her first vision was shattered there is
No need to give up the idea of having a cabin
In the jungle
