I saw a woman with snake’s eyes today. They were pale, and quiet, with the black point of the iris… She was calm, with a dreamy expression; the eyes spoke for her, spoke of peace and strength, of another world to which she belonged without knowing it. Her eyes led her and shaped her, they lay quietly under her half-closed lids, patient, certain of their power, over her, over everything… I saw a woman with snake’s eyes today.
