When I read that the first
all-female soccer team from Tibet

who were to lead the opening day
parade at the Cotton Bowl Stadium

then play for the Dallas Cup—
the first sports team of any sex

to represent Tibet in a tournament
on American soil— have been denied

visas by the US Embassy who declared they
“have no good reason to visit the US,”

I want to get people together to kick something
really hard, send it sailing into a clearly marked

target rimmed in orange at the end of a field,
and score and score and score and score.
