Awkward

once
while in the parking lot
at Ralph’s

an indigent man
asked me for some spare change

since i hadn’t any
i told him
that i had some cigarettes
if he would like a few

i walked over to my car
grabbed the pack
and as i was getting them out
he said, “i’m jonesin’!”

to which i unwittingly replied, “i’m max”
