Is that Kamau Braithwaite
coming in there?
Yeah, Kamau Braithwaite, and
also the society. I m talking about
the kinds of things you d hear on
the street. I always give the example
[of] a tout in Arima trying to get
you on to a maxi, rhyming and
using rhythm, all the time, for the
whole day, on the spot. What he
was saying was very simple stuff,
not anything you d marvel at, but
the sound of what he was doing
was very powerful. Trinidad has
that. One of my heroes from very
young was Clive Bradley. What I
heard in Clive Bradley was like the
sound of a people . I know, when
I walk the streets of Trinidad, there
is Bradley that I m hearing. I m a
Boogsie fan, too, but there s some-
thing about the rhythm of the peo-
ple that Bradley just got.
Are you a believer?
[Chuckling] A believer in what?
Usually there s a presupposition
about a certain concept of God,
it s difficult to answer. I am certainly
aware of a spiritual world. I don t
believe it necessarily deserves our
worship but it deserves respect.
And it is useful. I m not sure about
the idea of worship.
It's there to be served?
In a way, I think we are impor-
tant to that world, as well. When
you hear the stories---about
soucoyant or a dead relative or
whatever---that spirit world has
some desires of us as well. I have
no experiences of this world but,
if you want to talk about belief, I
just believe it s there. I m still not
at the point where I react to it, like
someone walking backwards into
their house at midnight. No, but
I respect it. I guess it s something
I grew up with. My mother has a
great respect for that world.
Do you pray?
No. I will not go to any of these
things if I can depend on myself,
[even if] I believe it s useful. I do
as much as I can for myself before
seeking help from spirit, police,
I m already working on some-
thing new. Every society has events
that society finds it hard to deal
with. You had 1990 and it took a
while for Raoul Pantin and
Monique Roffey to write about it,
for people in the society to deal
with it, through art.
In 2000, in St Lucia, on New
Year s Day, some guys went into
the cathedral and set people on fire
but there are a lot of symbols
around it that people don t pay
attention to or speak about. It
encapsulates St Lucia s history. The
Catholic church and the Catholic
hegemony and these guys were
Rastafarians. Then they pleaded
madness and it s only this year, 15
years later, they got a life sentence.
I think there s enough in there that
I can bring a book out of it.
You have a power who, their sins
are committed over a very long
period, so it doesn t feel like sins.
They don t have to do it in a stri-
dent or crude way. Then you have
these guys, in a very small moment,
doing something very crude and
very cruel and callous---but what
is the relationship now between
this immediate sin and these very
long sins that have been stretched
over centuries? In the moment,
they are going to be defined as
murderers and criminals---rightfully
so---but it s an interesting thing,
about how time operates, with
