And there’s the Eye of Tobit, moulded in plastic and set in a coffin built to suit. Masterful, the things kids create, though they don’t know it. That’s what we say, but they’re always aware. Proud, the kid squirts paste on the eye he’s made (a freckle rimming the iris, just like his dad’s) to fake glaucoma. Then, magic.
