She had a few friends with her.
He lived by himself in an enormous house.She walked home by herself.
To cotton-field drudge or cleaner of privies I lean,
On his right cheek I put the family kiss,
And in my soul I swear I never will deny him.
• to emphasise the person or thing we are referring to:
You there, impotent, loose in the knees,
Open your scarf'd chops till I blow grit within you,
Spread your palms and life the flaps of your pockets,
I am not to be denied, I compel, I have stores plenty and to
And any thing I have I bestow.
This is the press of a bashful hand, this the float and odorof hair,
I speak the pass-word primeval, I give the sign of democracy,
By God! I will accept nothing which all cannot have their
counterpart of on the same terms.
What is a man anyhow? what am I? what are you?
I dote on myself, there is that lot of me and all so luscious,
Each moment and whatever happens thrills me with joy,
I cannot tell how my ankles bend, nor whence the cause of
my faintest wish,
Nor the cause of the friendship I emit, nor the cause of the
friendship I take again.
Why should I pray? why should I venerate and be ceremonious?
Less the reminders of properties told my words,
And more the reminders they of life untold, and of freedom
And make short account of neuters and geldings, and favor
men and women fully equipt,
And beat the gong of revolt, and stop with fugitives and
them that plot and conspire.
