The ouija board - Laurie anderson

In 1978, I spent some time in California in the fall

 

Looking for a quiet place to live

 

I finally found what seemed to be the perfect apartment

 

But the night after I moved in

 

I heard a tremendous pounding sound

 

As it turned out, I had moved in right above

A Hawaiian hallow log drum school

 

Every other night, it was converted into a hula school

 

With a live band of six Hawaiian guitars

 

I decided to soundproof my place

 

But I didn't hang the door very well and all the sounds kept drifting in

 

About this time, like a lot of New Yorkers

Who find themselves on the West Coast

 

I got interested in various aspects of California's versions of the occult

 

We would sit around at night

 

When the Santa Anna winds howled outside

 

And ask questions to the ouija board

 

I found out a lot of information on my past 9,361 human lives on this planet

 

My first life was as a raccoon

 

And then you were a cow

 

And then you were a bird

 

And then you were a hat, spelled the ouija

 

We said “a hat?”

We couldn't figure it out.

 

Finally we guessed that

The feathers from the bird had been made into a hat

Is this true

 

Yes, spelled the ouija. Hat counts as half life

 

And then

 

Hundreds and hundreds of rave eyes

 

Now this is apparently my first life as a woman

 

Which should explain quite a few things

 

Eventually though, the ouija's written words

 

Seemed to take a kind of personality, a kind of a voice

 

Finally we began to ask the board

If the ouija would be willing to appear to us in some other form

 

Forget it, forget it, forget it, forget it, forget it, forget it

The ouija seemed like it was about to crash

Please, please, what can we do now

 

So you will show yourself to us in some other manifestation

 

You should lurk. You should L, U, R, K. Lurk.

 

No, I never really figured out how to lurk in my own place

 

Even though it was only a rented place

 

But I did find myself looking over my shoulder a lot

 

And every sound that drifted in

 

Seemed to be a version of this phantom voice

 

Whispering in a code that I could never crack
