Leyland Praxmire didn't notice the lack of bird chirping nor the lack of rustling leaves. He didn't notice the shuffling of his own feet across unused railroad ties. Leyland didn't even notice that his intestines were dragging on the ground. The only thing Leyland was aware of was his ravishing hunger and the clicking of his jaw.
