the last book I ever read (Cigarette Lighter (Object Lessons) by Jack Pendarvis, excerpt two)

from Cigarette Lighter (Object Lessons) by Jack Pendarvis:

A lighter is the trinket that enthralls the robot Eve and allows timid WALL-E to try holding her hand. In Jarmusch’s Mystery Train, Yuli Kudo picks up a cigarette lighter with her bare foot and gives her boyfriend a light with her toes. That’s intimacy.

A good light makes a connection.
