How we cite our quotes:

Quote #4

i have known them
to put a spell on a man and
spin him like a top! (13-15)

The poem moves from personal (and potentially individual) descriptions to a version of the speaker interacting with other people. It's how we know that her own image of herself translates into how other people see her, as well!
