plotting equations of the form x=.. with Maple...how? watch

1. Ok, i don`t really use Maple that much - (more of a Mathematica man myself), but, for something i`m doing i can`t get how to plot 4 vertical lines.

Here is how it does the horizontal ones, though...

plot({x, -x, -sqrt(2-sqrt(2)), -sqrt(2+sqrt(2)), sqrt(2-sqrt(2)), sqrt(2+sqrt(2))}, x = -2 .. 2, y = -2 .. 2)

and this is the plot i get, below - BUT i`m trying to plot the same lines as x equations: x=..

How might i do that, please anyone?

Parametric plot. E.g. plot([1,t,t=-5..5])
