My First Cigarette This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By

   It was on the hotel balcony

With my friend

We talked about our friends inside

Then out came the pack

From his blue jeans pocket

I was incredibly curious

"Have you smoked before"

"No"

He put the long cigarette in my young hand

With the forbidden fruit inside

I really wanted to see what it was like so

I took the matches

The flame touched the end of the cigarette

And into my mouth it went



Curiosity killed the cat

I like how you ended it with "Curiosity killed the cat." Very true.
