song 15

a.
Henry J Lee
Henh Ly
The wait, the wide, the shore
And here we are now, here we are
In through Vietnam, Roanoke 94
A better life, husband/wife
Grandmother camp survivor
Lamp of marvels, laws of motion
A folded world. The early ocean
Origami is a computer
Tucking the universe to a version of the real
Photography, movies
Trusting things as they are back to an ideal
China, Vietnam, Roanoke
He could tell a joke about himself:
The hallmark of one who is both nervous and a gentleman
Rain turns into snow,
It blows revolves and goes
April

b.
Song Ly:
Only child, he
And his mother escape to Vietnam 1950.
She
A camp survivor.
40
Years later, Song, children and wife,
To Roanoke “in search of a better life.”
Connectivity.
Computer is origami
A piece of paper folded
Shore to shore to shore.
Listing as flight;
Right to rest
Guaranteed by a constitution in physics:
When motion matches appropriate and collaborative zone,
The vector can stop inscribing place
And make its way finally to a kind of home, a Roanoke.
Heaven is the rest of one, as rapid as many in motion;
The many rapid as one at rest.

c.
Of a Web. Origami
All there, then
Connected different ways
Boat, plane, invented sliding creatures
By various means, the sea, light to light
Flight is a listing
Avidity, legacy, ten children and a theory of knowledge
Origin, invisible literature, an ocean and two continents
Translate Grace
From infinite rush
To home in comprehensive space

d.
Re-education
Cross a sea
A listing of lights.
Henry Lee, Henh Ly

The ocean, rivers, this mountain
Here we are now
Here we are
Lamp of marvels.
Laws of motion.
Connectivity.

Shore to shore
Light makes way
China, Vietnam
Roanoke VA
Lighthouse candlepower

Listing as flight
Right to rest
When motion matches appropriate and collaborative space,
The vector can stop inscribing place
And make its way finally to a kind of home, a Roanoke.

e.
A folded world,
The early ocean.
Roanoke, Virginia, ’94 –
Fear and move forward, turn toward.
A computer is a folded piece of paper,
All there, then, connected different ways,
Combining the plan to a version of the real.
China, Vietnam, Roanoke.
He could tell a joke about himself,
The hallmark of one who is both nervous and a gentleman,
A thrust to what one couldn’t possibly know.
The rain turns to snow,
It blows revolves and goes.
April.

f.
Flying through lists, lights,
A mind for heart and heart for mind,
A better life, husband/wife,
Five and flight, Vietnam,
Grandmother universe.
Graduated second in his high school class;
Survival.
A younger sibling, a new name, a hundred thousand people;
The library in one’s head.
Photography, movies –
To shift from stills to motion in real time, persistence
Of vision requires patience
Through moments of exile,
Faith in future, during that gap
When one picture makes way for the next.
Heaven is the rest of one as rapid as many in motion,
The many rapid as one at rest.
Henry J Lee,
Henh Ly,
The wait, the wide, the shore;
And here we are now, here we are.

g.
Moved to –
From –
Only child, Song Ly
Escapes on foot, China
His mother, 1950
40 years, Virginia
Politics, avidity
Ten children and legacy:
A theory of knowledge
Henry excels, high school, college
Excellence is overspill
Heart and mind at cinema speed
Lamp of marvels, law of motion
A folded world. The early ocean
Origami is a computer
Tucking the universe to a version of the real
Photography, movies
Thrusting things as they are forward to an ideal

h.
Grace: convert of motion
In infinite extension
To home in comprehension
China, Vietnam, Roanoke
He could tell a joke about himself
The hallmark of one who is both nervous and a gentleman
Rain turns into snow
It blows revolves and goes
A piece of paper folded
Shore to shore to shore
Heaven is the rest of one, as rapid as many in motion
The many rapid as one at rest
Vector can stop inscribing place
And make its way finally to a kind of home, a Roanoke
Exile, survival invents the hour
Lighthouse – candlepower

Be with me
As I’m with you
