The following is a piece from a body of work called Unfortunately which I’m currently working on.
Excuse me, bro. Could you spare me a cigarette? Everyone has been turning me down.
Are you surprised?
How do you mean?
Are you surprised that no one will give you a cigarette?
Yeah man, it’s just a smoke. I mean, can’t people spare a smoke?
What about your dog? How does he get cigarettes?
How does your dog get a cigarette if he needs one?
My dog doesn’t smoke, bro.
Well, if he did, how would he get a cigarette if he really needed one?
I don’t know, bro. He’d probably have a pack or something.
