A Tanka About Racism - Poem by Chenou Liu

their coarse voices
Wow! Chinaman s-peak-s En-gli-sh
amplified
by a room of silence
... my Bruce Lee kick in the air


Note: Bruce Lee (27 November 1940 - 20 July 1973) was a Chinese American and Hong Kong actor, and founder of the Jeet Kune Do (The Way of the Intercepting Fist) martial arts movement. He is highly-regarded and most-loved by his movie fans and martial art followers, viewed by many martial art commentators as 'inarguably' the greatest martial arts star of his generation.
