Fetishes

for some men one whiff of cowhide can induce an erection
 
contact
cast
a
long
brand
 
construction workers festooned with associations and smell and feel
 
manifestly
invested
in
other
bodies
 
leather looks from windows at these cowboy panties
 
desirable
a
certain
instance
of
anything
 
the trappings of thick white maleness
 
cigarettes
in
drag
are
their
own
bodies
