“If you want me again look for me under your boot soles.” Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass

From Ovid to Ammons, writers have been fascinated by the physical transformation of material and the recycling of form. The very first line of The Metamorphoses reads, “I want to speak about bodies changed into new forms,” while A. R. Ammons in Sphere writes, “Things go away to return, brightened for the passage.” What is it about atoms and restless change that has attracted writers as diverse as Lucretius and Whitman? What does it mean to think of recycling as a form of desire? Or is the very idea of converting waste inimical to desire?
