Raccoon eyes

I don’t know what it is, but for someone who hates makeup, I sure do have a thing for dark eyes. I notice it turns up in my prose quite often, to wit:

“She had those hollowed out, blackened smoky eyes that almost make me wreck my car when I’m staring at them as someone catches my eye in traffic.”

I noticed it again this morning. On the bus. A woman, the whole way in the back of the bus, black teased hair, dark shadowed eyes.

Maybe because it’s not natural and breaks from my pattern of only enjoying natural things.

Then again, I believe that if you try to read too much into what you like, it takes the magic away.
