Responding (notes app edition) to Mina Nishimura’s Mapping a Forest while Searching for an Opposite Term of Exorcist at Danspace Project

Image reads:

is the opposite of an exorcism an incantation?
laughing bones of a building
laughing ghosts of a building gasping
through them
how do you listen to ghosts
how do you cast a spell incomplete and unbothered
trails in sand snails leaving slug tracks
shard of bone twitching
praying for a silly ghost

i didn’t do it
i didn’t do it
i didn’t do it

white person says i didn’t do it
to the echo of a church built by enslaved people
they don’t believe themselves?

sensitive instruments must (can?) listen closely for ghosts
