Smoke, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal's weighing the soundness of amplifying his unimposing Fiction Corpus with a fable about gregorian calendars; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I trust in the soundness of enacting English as a worldwide lingua franca. I don't trust in the spiritless routine with which English is presented for study.Pointer

Polishing one's skillfulness with a language isn't like creating a sharper needle. A language - a living tongue - isn't just a tool that you can teach yourself to exploit with a greater amount of precision. A common language cannot be disjoined from the professed knowledge of a recognized nation of which it is a description. A language isn't recited; it happens - and keeps happening as long as a circle of people keeps using it.

To make pupils recite English is to cheat them out of its cultural context. A proper teacher must develop a strategy for introducing it; the insightful pupil ventures out to seek it.

A dictionary - properly used - can become an influential tool. A decent dictionary will describe a language based on a specific corpus, a body of writing of various size and consistency. This corpus can contain everything from a book about literature to the top science fiction ever written. I watched many moons pass laboring on my "lowly" Fiction Corpus in order to form a new type of dictionary based on the ability of one man to tell a story in myriad forms. It is a labor of love and listening.

I have crafted a million words and I have broken them down, reframing them - not just to teach an American language but to describe the human soul, and to provoke that soul or spirit not just to recite but to happen.

Michal's Dictionary:
Understanding the word Smoke

A word can represent many things. First and foremost it represents a type of gesture. A specific way of speaking. A specific way of inscribing a mark. A specific way of moving your hand. To know one of these kinds of gestures is to know how to pronounce the word smoke in some kind of way.

If you want to communicate an idea using the word smoke, you will need to know what other people are made to think when you make the gesture. You will never have complete awareness of or control over the associations or identities that are invoked by a set of words, but you can know what was and what is a single word's jointly accepted definition, at least for a given place, thereby tracing a direction which will help you to understand what kinds of associations and identities are driving its use.

By using the word yourself, you enter into a long-standing albeit oftentimes unconscious debate over its definition, forever entangling yourself into the history of its use. The way you use it, and which other words you use it with carries weight.

The more you know about where the word smoke is located in the fabric of a language, the better you will be at exploiting its cultural power.

Usage of Smoke in The Gospel of Jesus H.

A picture of the planet Mars

An experimental science fiction Christology that makes Jesus the hard boiled narrator of his own early years on a bizarro earth made dark by volcanic ash and informally ruled by a man from Mars who sells bottled air.

Outside the airport, Jesus waited for three hours. He bought a cigarette and smoked it. Twenty cab drivers tried to give him a ride. He found his grandmother's phone number and called. "What's going on?" he asked.

"What's going on?" she said. "Where are you?"

Verses 151-152 from the chapter called Adolescence

"That's right," said his uncle, giggling. "It's a shortcut." To a cheap watering hole! where men turned into whimpering dogs, keeling over and crying for their masters. They were worthless hounds, chained and beaten by devils, abandoned by the Devil himself, who cares for richer meat: not old men! Rotten men! Men with false teeth! Sucking on shotglass! Nursing their own beer mugs as if they were fat whores' teats! Breathing more smoke than air! Jesus blacked out! The next thing he knew, he was smelling his own vomit: dried vomit: putrid vomit: fresh, ethanol vomit - all of it caked onto his face and arms, his clothes, the convertible sofa, spilling onto the wet floor, in a puddle of red-orange puke. How many stages of vomit? Some of it was flaking off. Some of it was rolled into balls. (During the night, vomit crumbs had been collecting in his ass.) Most of it was half-dried. The rest of it was liquid. For a second, Jesus had no idea where he was. When he realized he was lying on his own sofa, he wondered how he had gotten there. The last thing he remembered was being cradled in his beloved uncle's arms. Why was he being cradled? He was drunk. But why was he being cradled? Had his uncle been whispering something? Lullabies? What the fuck! What kind of life is that? He rejected it.

Verse 375 from the chapter called Adolescence

"This must be what it's like early in the evening," I said to my guests. "As I remember it, the smoke should be about a centimeter above the floor by the time the real party starts." At a premium that made one's eyes bulge, bottles of Cheap Alaskan Air were available from coin-actuated vending machines. Who could have so many coins? I thought to myself. But then I realized that there was a paper-money-actuated coin dispenser right next to it. "Would you like some fresh Cheap Alaskan Air?" I asked my female companions.

Verse 387 from the chapter called Bohemia

It was a mixture of jealousy and admiration that brought the boys into his gang, which was the most occasional of institutions: membership was never guaranteed; it was based on personal interest, and, perhaps, performance in Jesus's last group adventure - because Jesus didn't need a pack: he was the Lonely Planet, as the girls called him, and all the other boys were nothing next to his greatness - but sometimes, he would invite them along: what a great privilege it was! He would let them come into his lair and smoke his stolen tobacco - stolen from the old lady's attic, in case they didn't know, in the last group adventure. Jesus had his regulars, of course, but, more often than not, they were on their own - and, without him, they were leaderless: they were like a pirate crew without their captain, weak and ineffective.

Verse 233 from the chapter called Childhood

With fire came smoke as well. It was good for curing meat, but apart from that, it pretty much stank. The real problem was that man had moved indoors. With fire, he no longer feared caves: that which was once cold and dark and potentially full of predators was now full of light and warmth and people - and smoke; that was irritating. Charcoal was good, but only helped so much. In colder climes, it was rather ineffective. The problem of smoke in the domicile was not solved for millennia. The problem of smoke in general was still frustrating man years after the explosions at Yellowstone.

Verse 5 from the chapter called Security

NIKE: No way: I would've remembered you.

INDIE: You've never seen it.

NIKE: Yes I have: was it the maternity issue?

INDIE: What?

NIKE: Nothing.

INDIE: I'm not going to tell you which one it was.

NIKE: It doesn't matter. It'll be enough for me.

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 28, Sharing a Post-Coital Smoke, Paragraphs 28-37

We got up to leave. Nike wanted to know where a good place was to go and smoke. I suggested we go through the pub's back door, and, after snaking around a few obstacles, we found ourselves near the dumpsters. "Let's keep going," said Nike. So we continued walking till we came across the block's main artery. "Alright, let's go down this way." So we started walking down the narrow road, walking in silence.

Bullets whizzing by a statue of Nikola Tesla

A collection of stories featuring a sexy Parisian ghost, a spooky Moon base full of vagina-faced aliens, a policeman with an Irish name, a truck full of watermelons, a flautist, and a man who has to see another man about a diseased horse.

Nike reassured him. "I'm good for it." He sucked on a pipe. He blew out smoke. The windows were getting cloudy. "I was desperate. What was I going to do? Rape her? I had to give her something. A thousand is all I had."

"Listen to him," scoffed Rothko. "They don't make thousand Euro bills. You gave her at least two."

– from “Paris Is For Rapists, Too,” a ghost story featuring the Bois the Boulogne

Nike shrugged. "I can't help being rich."

"Rich people," explained Rothko, "know not to pay a hooker before she's screwed. Otherwise, you're the one getting the shaft."

"Words of wisdom," replied Nike, "from the drug dealer who just smoked me up for free. You should go into pimping."

"My father wouldn't like it. He's an MP."

"What's that-a micropenis?"

"A member of parliament."

– from “Paris Is For Rapists, Too,” a ghost story featuring a frank discussion of sex work

He repeated, "Are you alright?"

The woman swallowed. She whispered, "Yes." The voice unfurled and disappeared like a curl of smoke.

Clark watched the truck turn around. Its suspension bobbed. Metal clashed. Dust leapt into the air. The hulking frame disappeared behind its own trail of smoke. The weary moan of the drive train cut into Clark's soul.

"Come on," said Shephard. "The site's more than twenty-five miles away. We need to get moving."

Usage of Smoke in Sorry Ms. Jackson

Chiseled letters from an ancient stone tablet hanging on a wall

A real play. With drama in it. Talk fast. It takes two hours. Set in a guest house. In a small community. After a murder. Lots of suspicion. The characters learn to listen to each other. It's funny.

FLETCHER: How dangerous!

ALICE: It'll never happen again: I swear. I almost had a heart attack.

FLETCHER: Pretty girls do make for the best smugglers.

ALICE: An Australian woman in Indonesia was almost executed for that.

FLETCHER: Promise me you'll never do it again.

ALICE: I promise.

FLETCHER: Now hand it over.

ALICE: I have been tempted to get rid of it.

FLETCHER: Doesn't Luke smoke?

ALICE: He's not particularly fond of it.

– ACT II, lines 141-150

FLETCHER: Kokomo is a confirmed Catholic. She was filled with the strength of the Holy Ghost.

ALICE: I didn't know axe-wielding was one of His gifts.

FLETCHER: I'll have to ask my catechist the next time we meet.

ALICE: Are you a catechumen?

FLETCHER: I'm an inquirer. Kokomo is my ever patient sponsor.

ALICE: Was that before she caught you?

FLETCHER: I suppose I wanted her to find it. She has a point, as far as art is concerned. Whatever one thinks of its medicinal uses, it can't cure a lack of imagination.

ALICE: The sensory awareness it provides or the perception of time one experiences under its influence can benefit pursuits like contemplation or flower arrangement.

FLETCHER: What's made you such a passionate partisan? Have you partaken of the peace pipe?

ALICE: Occasionally. It's been more often than that. I used to work for a florist. There was never any reason not to smoke. To be completely honest, I accidentally brought some with me.

– ACT II, lines 121-130

FLETCHER: There is a house on Norfolk that no longer stands. Its eaves of pine were reduced to ash. Its worthy frame that I helped build collapsed in a huge fury of smoke and fire that I helped start. I watched it burning from the top of Mount Pitt. I was too ashamed to go any closer. I was there in the room the night my father planned that terrible justice with his friends. I heard them goading each other into teaching their fellow man not to cooperate with the Australian government. It was madness I heard from their lips. They were the drunken lips of dogs waiting to pounce. I said nothing. I did nothing to stop them. When the police came, I lied and said I knew nothing. I climbed Mount Pitt out of morbid curiosity to see what I had wrought. That image of the house whose beams I placed - whose trusses I tied - in the distance - engulfed in flames - is seared upon my mind. I did nothing to stop it. Do you know how sorry I am? If I told you that somebody died in that fire, would it be in your power to forgive me?

Usage of Smoke in Miscellaneous Dingbats

The title of the book at the end of a string of miscellaneous dingbats

A story book full of short fiction stories. An interesting bedtime mystery. A fairy tale. Science fiction romance. Adult life. Uninspiring gay fiction. Horror.

"Stay here," said Proctor. "I'm going back to see John." When Proctor got to John's building, there was a squad car outside. An officer behind the wheel. Upstairs his partner stood outside John's door.

"Just you?" asked Proctor. The officer nodded. "Okay. Have a smoke."

"Thanks, boss." The man walked off. Proctor knocked on the door. When John opened it, Proctor busted it wide. He threw John against the wall.

"Who else knows, you cocksucker?"

– from “We Need To Talk,” a mystery story featuring an artist put in a weird position

Jesus turned water into wine. That probably pissed people off, you know. People who make the wine. The people who tax the people who make the wine. Those are the people we've been fighting our entire lives. Why should I be ashamed of it. You know, I don't make people abuse drugs or smoke cigarettes. And why I should I stop them. What gives me the right to make that choice. It's their fault.

– from “The Testament of Publio Orazio,” a horror story without that much killing coming straight out of Roman mythology

The Amazon assigned a top-notch surveillance unit to watch Orbitz's every move. They watched him clear out his flight deck locker. They watched him go to the gym one last time before turning in his passcard. They watched him share a smoke with the old-time janitor. They tweaked their earpieces as they listened to him tell stories about the janitor's great-great-grandfather who was shining floors and taking names the last time Orbitz was around. They fell asleep. The Amazon found out. He went crazy. He warned them that Orbitz was capable of anything. He had a thousand year head start. He was the richest man in the universe. He spoke hundreds of languages. He could have treasure buried on every planet in the Orion cluster if not the entire Orion arm of the galaxy. They were sleeping while Orbitz was on a transport to Earth.

– from “The Death and Life of Captain Orbitz,” a science fiction romance dictated by my love for Stanislaw Lem, if you know who that is

Further west the air fills with dust. Further west another ocean fills with fire. As the smoke clears my comrade and I face yet another shore. This one teeming with life. We wait. There may be hope in these masses. We watch the battles rage. We watch the battles die down. We land in a barren field.

Are you a eunuch?

The art show that defies abuse

St. Sebastian

Wall art symbolizing strength and protest

St. Sebastian was a member of the Roman Emperor's praetorian guard who had the audacity to teach Christian values while on the job. I think active duty American military men and women who don't vote or who don't publicly express a political opinion because of the uniform are either being idiotic or are being cowed by the threat of punishment from a superior. Either way, they're eunuchs. My purpose in creating the St. Sebastian Series is to put the flesh and face of the true soldier front and center. The good soldier puts his mission ahead of himself. He often ends up dead. The true soldier knows a bad mission when he sees one and he isn't afraid to say it. Saint Sebastian was not a cow, despite what clever people would have you believe. Saint Sebastian is a patron saint for all protestors who face the arrows of the mob for speaking out.
