Cigarette Girl


I didn’t smoke in life.

The fake cigarette

is between my lips now.


I’m dead, I think.

I can’t move,

so I can feel for a pulse.


I’m a museum piece

and the only one able to see

the whole room.


There are two of them.

They work together in tandem

to make us beautiful.


Maybe, I am alive.

I feel myself breathing,

at least.


I won’t be for long.

it’s time for the trash

to be thrown out.
