Eating Cigarettes

The other day someone asked me what it was like to eat a cigarette. 

It didn't take me off guard, really, I just had no idea what he was talking about. 

Then, I remembered that when I first started performing, in the middle of a poem titled Oh Captain, My Captain, I ate someone's cigarette. Or maybe it was my cigarette. 

I think the performance must be online. Swallowed the whole thing. Just bit it right off the filter and gulped it down and finished the piece. I had the worst stomach ache by the end of the night. 

Anyway my advice is to avoid doing things like that.
