Nations to Stop At
for Christian & Kamau

dialect, considered, especially by those
initially educated in our Caribbean,
to be static, blur, occurring when the dial's
not right on the station

in our case, English or the BBC being that station

Kamau Braithwaite introduces us to
our own nation language, not static at all,
not some nebulous place between stations

nation language, another station
without static, as clear as day as they say
