Lightning Epps is a dog.
Hostile Witness seems kind of angry and death-obsessed.
As if any man really knew aught of my life;
Why, even I myself, I often think, know little or nothing of my real life;
Only a few hints—a few diffused, faint clues and indirections,
I seek, for my own use, to trace out here.
--- Walt Whitman, "When I Read the Book"
