They are the symbol of vulnerability and childhood. We like to see them vicious because, thats funny. We like to see them alert, because we hope to see things coming just as readily. We wear their likeness over our own faces because we want to dominate with sweetness. We like to see them skinned, because, thats life on the farm, ultimate reality. We like to see them fly, change color, be sexy ( ultimate fertile myrtle.....resurrection and renewal ) , do the 1000 yard stare, drip with creepiness, smoke pipes, show us the way, because they have an innate transparency that allows magic in all directions.
