cigarettes

"I like cigarettes. I like to think of fire held in a man's hand. Fire, a dangerous force, tamed at his fingertips. I often wonder about the hours whena  man sits alone, watching the smoke of a cigarette, thinking.
I wonder what great things have come from such hours. Whena  man thinks, there is a spot of fire alive in his mind - and it is proper that he should have the burning point of a cigarette as his one expression."
~ the old man at the Taggart Terminal
