The trial

The scent of Copaifera langsdorffii and Wisteria enters –

with him.

The killer

A charming criminal

A well-dressed recluse

Methodical murderer

A man spilled of himself

A second offender

Prior, a kidnapper of berries

A petty offense

Presently, charged on five counts

Reckless behavior, Murder, Endangerment, Arson, Disturbing the Peace

Caught white handed!

On the count of extracted latex

Dripping from his hands

His favorite victims Pine, Oak, Bamboo, Teak, Birch


His weapon of choice –

Sharp, metal instruments

with the occasional fire starters

A proclaimed artist

Sculpting, redefining

Shaping the world like his heart –



The roots testified

On the basis of the Plaintiff

The grounds murder

His eyes quickly shifting

Inhaled pride

Dim smile

Reveling in his glory

The verdict –
