Sam Kettel — "Tungsten filament.", 2013


Tungsten filament.



I'd get blown away

the day we unboxed the bulb.

To imagine - one hundred Watts

of electricity

beating like a pulsar!

Or,

the etching of your life

along the heart rate monitor,

undulating through

the tungsten filament

between two parallel contact wires.



A touch of heat enough

to tattoo my print to the globe of glass.
