She fed sauerkraut to the apple tree

in hopes to feed it and 

help it grow.


She fed sauerkraut to the apple tree

at the base of the trunk

watching it diffuse into the soil

where it would meet the roots.


She fed sauerkraut to the apple tree

knowing the roots would suck it up

flowing into the veins of the tree.


She fed sauerkraut to the apple tree  

so that the bitter taste would

seep into the sweet sap

mixing two distinct tastes.


She fed sauerkraut to the apple tree

urging it to flow upwards and

reach the peak 

the very tip of the highest leaf

the highest apple.


She fed sauerkraut to the apple tree

poisioning the once sweet and

perfect apples.
