No Spark of Life


An oven flooding with gas
A starter-motor whirring in an engine not turning
A match scraping not striking
A boiler-clock clicking not firing
Gears jumping not engaging
Water steaming not bubbling
Cigarette lighter flicking not igniting
Batter baking not rising

    This is excellent. Such an powerful collection of images for the predicament of needing a smoke.
