What poetry can do with words, D.D.Trans does with domestic, garden and kitchen utensils. With a small twist he short circuits the alliance between fabricated things and their meaning. But being simple is not identical to being simplistic. Guileless but careful he bends things, kindled by an association, a whiff of rebellion, and a subcutaneous, understated melancholy.
