On Fashioning a Fetishistic Totem

An object
Any will do
Preferably
Parallel
To the person
Upon which
Your obsession
Is fixed

But purely
Disconnected
Except through
An association
Known only
To you
Will do
As well

The projection
On your part
What you will
Upon the subject
becomes for you
The world
To widen
To welcome

Be wary
The words
You say
To yourself
Will be
The way
You believe
Despite yourself

Speak softly
Succinctly
Each sound
Sends echoes
Locating
Both you
And your
desire
