imaginary cigarettes

I’m inhaling from imaginary cigarettes
each time I breathe in …… it speeds up my heart
for a solitary moment of hope
and a too-rapid rise to the peaks that I used to climb
twenty five times every day

my eyes are a quick side-to-side scanning gyration
searching for the source …… quickly …… any source
then a flexing of fingers …… now moist with the sheen
of sweat that an unrequited rush released
