Smoke and Mirrors (extract)
A gas station is bursting with steam, a car roof set on fire. Mirrored smoke patters appear under bridges and in a game arcade. A silhouette of a man blinks on and off nervously.
Smoke and mirrors is a metaphor for a deceptive or insubstantial explanation or description. The source of the name is based on magician's illusions, where magicians make objects appear or disappear by extending or retracting mirrors amid a confusing burst of smoke and also a slang for magic acts and `freak show' displays that depend on `trompe l'oeil' effects. More generally, "smoke and mirrors" may refer to any sort of presentation by which the audience is intended to be deceived.
