Peter Stuyvesant

woman-smoking

I took a long slow luxurious drag on my Peter Stuyvesant Blue cigarette and felt myself savouring every moment. Peter Stuyvesant Blue Kings are my preferred brand – my smoke of preference, you might say. No matter what was going wrong in my day, lighting up a Peter Stuyvesant Blue would restore my sense of composure, even if it was just for a few brief moments. I took another long drag and then exhaled with pleasure, savouring every moment of the experience. Peter Stuyvesant Blue King Sized cigarettes are my brand of preference, my preferred smoke, you might say… Just then I remembered that I was in fact dead, having died quite recently – a long and painful death, as I now remembered, due to chronic emphysema, brought about by smoking. My perception of smoking a Peter Stuyvesant Blue, and enjoying it, was merely a residual body image – it wasn’t real at all, it was just a post-mortem hallucinationFuckfuckfuckfuckfuckfuckfuckfuckfuckfuckfuckfuck I cursed, then reflexively reached for a cigarette.
