“My trunk is gnawed by worms and insects. The winds have broken the dry branches where the dense crown once rumbled. My roots have rotted away. I’ve forgotten the taste of earth juice.

As he performs his duties, he unwittingly becomes embroiled in a violent confrontation of necrological beings that could lead to his terrible demise.
