Idea: Poetic concentration on the human body and the name as a fetish. The word fetish is used in its german etymological meaning as "magic object or subject", "something that is artificially arranged". 

Fetisch m. erw. fach.  `magischer Gegenstand, Götzenbild` (< 18. Jh.). Entlehnt aus frz. fétiche,  dieses aus port. feitico  `Zauber, Zaubermittel`, eigentlich `künstlich Hergerichtetes`, zu 1. facere  `machen, tunʻ . [...]

For the word poetry I followed Andrey Tarkovskys definition:

„When I speak of poetry I am not thinking of it as a genre. Poetry is an awareness of the world, a particular way of relating to reality. [...] You were walking along the street and your eyes met those of someone who went past you. There was something startling in his look, it gave you a feeling of apprehension.“, 

Andrey Tarkovsky, „Sculpting in Time“, S. 21 - 23, 2010.
