Thirty years ago, the dream was shattered
Thirty years ago, the Russian tank crushed the gate of democracy 
Thirty years later, 'Thirty Years' have been murdered...

.... She is a poet from Norway, whom I have never met.  She once found my works here, and we have been in touch in spirit ever since.  "Papa" is dedicated to Ky Lan, whose father was KIA in the advent of the invasion of the South by North Vietnamese military forces, begun January 1975.    --Linh Duy Vo, 31 March 2005
