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!


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.
