It started like all puffs from a cigarette do
it was a lazy evening nothing happening
until she came
hey can I bum a sig off you, she said
three words in 
and i was already pulling one out of the pack

she was someone new to my out of focus world
awestruck by her ease as she laid the enchantment 
I gave her the lucky like any good magician would
the spell was set so we made small talk 
to appease the gods of the buzz
not knowing if we could
or just maybe should
eventually get ours
