After Eva Hesse’s Two Handled Orange-Keyed Utensil
To make something from something — something
of utility. The spoon, for instance, bent into
what adorns our wrist. Those trinkets
pleasing the eye.
Such pleasure in this craft — the two hands
working in coordination. Keys
of the piano. Keys
in the lock.
A turning into — what is called transformation.
Here: a picture of you then, and again,
then, and another. Stages and years,
here in your hand
and then gone. As if
you meant it.
