Learning suicide

My parents took me to see Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon

when I was twelve.

 

They understood how much I liked swords

and fighting

and ninjas

 

But when, finally, the girl jumped from the mountain

 

and the credits sprung

 

I was lost.

 

Where’s the end of the film?

 

Did she get her wishes?

 

My parents worded their answers

with the careful steps

of martial arts masters.
