To Jacques Derrida’s Ghost (first letter)

 

I am not writing this to perform or associate.

I am not writing to show you how smart I am or convey sentiment.

I am not writing this to enact or trace you and your concepts, find limits and problems, start over or return.

I am not writing this to impose order or opinions.

I am not writing to establish or contribute to archives.

I am not writing to teach, influence or possess.

I am not writing this as a representation.

I am not writing as anything else.

I am writing in time.

I am writing in search of justice.

I am writing this in the hope that we exist.
