Background

A description of the experience

Walt Whitman – Leaves of Grass

I turn the bridegroom out of bed and stay with the bride myself
And tighten her all night to my thighs and lips
My voice is the wife's voice, the screech by the tail of the stairs
They fetch my man's body up dripping and drowned
All this I swallowed and it tastes good... I like it well and it becomes mine
I am the man … I suffered... I was there

The source of the experience
