Some Last Questions

 What is the head
Ash What are the eyes A.
The wells have fallen in and have Inhabitants What are the feet A.
Thumbs left after the auction No what are the feet A.
Under them the impossible road is moving Down which the broken necked mice push Balls of blood with their noses What is the tongue A.
The black coat that fell off the wall With sleeves trying to say something What are the hands A.
Paid No what are the hands A.
Climbing back down the museum wall To their ancestors the extinct shrews that will Have left a message What is the silence A.
As though it had a right to move Who are the compatriots A.
They make the stars of bone
