This is an original translation from the Dutch by the author, and it is the first time this work has ever been printed in English.

Holding a cigarette between thumb and middle finger of the right hand the performer removes it deliberately with the other hand.

In fact the slightly bent left hand is passed below the right hand (illustration I) before closing. In order to remove the cigarette this hand is twisted, so that it comes back upwards. Consequently the cigarette hinges into the right hand (illustration II), the free end touching the palm of the hand, the other end remaining clipped between the tips of the thumb and middle finger, so that the action of a pivot is created. The left hand is closed and reversed and at the same time the other hand is twisted too, with back facing the audience. The right forefinger points to the fist, directing attention away from the right hand wherein the cigarette is concealed (illustration III).

To perform this manipulation properly the right hand must be kept completely quiet, the left hand doing all movements.
