Is there a real poster of an older woman advertising her desire to "breathe dust"? No, that's not true: The poster was created by Alan Wagner and posted on his comedic Instagram account @truewagner.
The claim appeared in a Facebook post (archived here) published on June 23, 2021. It included an image of the poster, which featured various pictures of an older woman and read, in part:
WARNING: I BREATHE DUST
- I put all kinds of dust in a bag and breathe it
- It makes me feel like Super Woman
The caption of the Facebook post was a lone question mark.
This is what the post looked like on Facebook on June 25, 2021:

The image was originally posted to the @truewagner Instagram account on April 27, 2018. However, then it included a watermark and a phone number (shown below) that was removed either by the account that posted it on Facebook or by another social media user:
