Coyote saw the children of Cottontail. The children were playing. They were pulling out their own eyes, they were throwing them to the sky, they were getting them back to their eye-sockets. Coyote must play. His eyes were dark and shiny. He removed his eyes and threw them up to the sky. They stopped on a senete tree. He shook the tree; he failed to make them fall. Cottontail's children laughed, they laughed at him. Coyote's stomach twisted. He chased after them. He failed to catch them; he left. He had to make new eyes from resin. Ever since, Coyote's eyes were like resin (dull yellow).
