Dave was a glass-smith. With his talents he created kaleidoscopic glasses of prismatic distortion through which he could see good and evil as distinct entities - in a single subject! He could look at a person and see these opposites, hermetically distinct and conveniently capsulized for easy comparison. It was all in the eyes. The viewer peered through the lenses and into the eyes of the person. One eye held all the malevolence, contempt and hatred that a person had to offer. The other eye reflected the entire goodness in that person's soul. Jekyll and Hyde at a glance. The only trouble with the glasses was that one could never tell which eye was which.
