I briefly smell smoke

10:40am, knee deep in work
Antiseptic style of a
High tech office park
all around me, surrounded.

10:40am, I briefly smell smoke
then nothing, only coffee
and plastic.
I get up and walk around,
nothing.

10:45am, back at desk
smelling smoke again
realizing its all in my head
listening to tracks about
sticky smoke, and delayed exhales.

10:50am finished this
and the attention broke the spell
no more imaginary smells
just coffee and plastic.
