We first met at one of those street magic shows in Covent Garden.
The magician had a foam ball and three cups; you know the trick – you have to find the cup that the ball is under.
The magician began to mix up the cups and this is the best way I can describe our relationship.
It was confusing and unpredictable but I was sure I knew the answer
When the cup was lifted the ball wasn’t there.
We had tried to pull off our own magic trick,
Forgetting that he wasn’t a magician and neither was I.
