In a Bottle or a Teacup Today?
Asked about his fighting philosophy,
Bruce Lee said flow like water—change
accordingly. “Be water, my friend.”
I tried to know the containers—
even the incredible contours
of convolutions named bowels;
how many know the true shape
of their own entrails—or would want to
know, even if they had the means?
I never dreamed your kicks
and punches would end at such a young age
or me old and trapped in a wet paper bag.
