to dionne brand
on my baptism in her papers at the national archives of canada

sky blue pen turned waves
unlined paper map to what
i need to know now

you were making this
round revolution
on paper, in the streets, in

the classroom, in bed
and i was being born and
learning to walk and

making first words out
of a fist and a cry, so
thank you for knowing
