I dunno. I just got this beautiful mental image and went with it.

Her Dreams Were Silent Films

on a sunsetting shag
Between aluminum walls
Where a vinyl heart shattered

the mokingbird sings
From a reality once carved
Into the chests of the
Gutter gods
Once speckled with stardust
      And stamps
           And syringes

Scream loud, O bloated one
Painted ice by Dreaming
Hold hands with the shag
                     if not with redemption

It's not like your glazed eyes
Ever believed in anything

  the first stanza, "dusk" gave ME a mental image and it really was like silence flickering these contrasting images at me...a silent room, the sun setting and it's almost like an eclipse between night and day for me. aluminum walls could be like an inner fortress erected for some kind of protection and once the light is gone, the guards come down? anyways, yes, loved the first stanza. the whole thing is very dreamlike, it has this tone of forgiveness? "Hold hands with the shag if not with redemption." Or maybe resignation? Hmmm, makes one think though!
