Theme: Sneakers and eyes

Sneakers and eyes…We have a girl’s tennis shoe and what it portends, sneakers made from old tires, a tempting eyelash and eyes gouged out in sacrifice. And more…a nuclear error (‘but I have no fear’); mother, mermaid, and mummy tree; murderous son and abandoned children; forgeries and maps of others; labyrinth, mirror, and maze; cats and turtles and dissing muses.”
