A Short Story

A tribute to the photo-sequences of Duane Michaels, the following is inspired by and adapted from E.T.A. Hoffmann’s “Der Sandmann.”

The Sandman

Don’t you know?

He is a wicked man who comes if you don’t sleep and throws a handful of sand into your eyes…

…so that they pop grittily out from your head…

…and he carries them up to the crescent moon to feed to his offspring, who sit there in their iron next, and have curved beaks, like owls…

5…all the better to pick apart the eyeballs of wayward men.
