I stand here all alone,
waiting for someone to come along.
I wave my arms –
Come, be amazed by my charms.
Have an apple,
Recline against me.
You bite into my fruit just as it begins to rain
Blisters begin to cover your body
and bloody foam erupts from your mouth.
Why, oh, why must I be
a Manchineel tree*?
