you’re taller now sequoia
but i’m taller
how else can i write
the mountain or the river silvering in snow—
how else can i dis assemble language
enough to crawl inside silos filled with wheat
i don’t need your permission
i will bury myself
beneath layers of grain dust
no one not even you will find me
