I chant the chant of dilation or pride, We have had ducking and deprecating about enough, I show that size is only development.
21 I am the poet of the Body and I am the poet of the Soul, The pleasures of heaven are with me and the pains of hell are with me, The first I graft and increase upon myself, the latter I translate into new.
7 Has any one supposed it lucky to be born?
48 I have said that the soul is not more than the body, And I have said that the body is not more than the soul, And nothing, not God, is greater to one than one's self is, And whoever walks a furlong without sympathy.8 The little one sleeps in its cradle, I lift the gauze and look a long time, and silently brush away flies with my hand.This is the city and I am one of the citizens, Whatever interests the rest interests me, politics, wars, markets, newspapers, schools, The mayor and councils, banks, tariffs, steamships, factories, stocks, stores, real estate and personal estate.I do not know it-it is without name-it is a word unsaid, It is not in any dictionary, utterance, symbol.Sun so generous it shall be you!Sure as the most certain sure, plumb in the uprights, well entretied, braced in the beams, Stout as a horse, affectionate, haughty, electrical, I and this mystery here we stand.Distant and dead resuscitate, They show as the dial or move as the hands of me, I am the clock myself.The sentries desert every other part of me, They have left me helpless to a red marauder, They all come to the headland to witness and assist against.
Eleves, I salute you!I remember now, I resume the overstaid fraction, The grave of rock multiplies what has been confided to it, or to any graves, Corpses rise, gashes heal, fastenings roll from.O I perceive after all so many uttering tongues, And I perceive they do not come from the roofs of mouths for nothing.Did it make you ache so, leaving me?I will accept nothing which all cannot have their counterpart of on the same terms.Winds whose soft-tickling genitals rub against me it shall be you!Magnifying and applying come I, Outbidding at the start the old cautious hucksters, Taking myself the exact dimensions of Jehovah, Lithographing Kronos, Zeus his son, and Hercules his grandson, Buying drafts of Osiris, Isis, Belus, Brahma, Buddha, In my portfolio placing Manito loose, Allah.
