the silent hour

the nasal corpses with quaint mannerisms
that shuffle up and down the deserted aisles
of forbidden pharmacies in forgotten towns
choose with care the ladders they pin to their skin

we too should borrow our torches from honest men
sow fingernails to reap a crop of owls
for the spaces between our memories and our words
are filled with mayonnaise
