its thematic for me i guess, i tend to use it alot in my work. superheros have capes, terri moore has hair, i have smoke...
its whats left over after somethings been used, been consumed. smoke and ash.
and i can relate to that in a very real way. i have mentioned perhaps that i have grown tired these past months, i have given so much of myself to others that i have said that ive felt like a worn t-shirt, and identify with cigarettes, used for a purpose and having fulfilled that, discarded.
