Fan Mail: in honor of my friends from the Greenlake Dochang


Fan Mail

Dear Michelle

You scare off husbands because you dare to know kung-fu

Transcendence in a flurry of motion; no mere slip of a girl

You take on the world with your hands and feet

007 was no match for you

A hundred pound tsunami sweeping over the bad guys in a wave of fury

Dear Michelle

We are the same age and I think of you as I practice and practice

Kicks over my head- flying through the air, finding my breath-my chi

I work to be as good as you

Some day we could meet as sisters in arms

Defending the weak from the center of our power

Pure of heart and noble in spirit

Let’s kick some butt; metaphysically speaking

Dear Michelle

I know you have a wire and a great make-up artist

But the rest is pure you

You conquer crouching tigers and hidden dragons in silk brocade

You fly over roof-tops and bamboo forests

You are a sword a calligraphy poem written in the way of action

You do not know fear

And from a code of honor you strike with deadly purity

The fire of courage and integrity is pure you

Dear Michelle

I work to be as good as you
