eyesonthefloor:

they cut you open,
stomach full of knives,
innards gone wrong—
and while the masks
hungered over your sleeping body,
your guardian angel wept
for your pain and for your loss,
for lost love,
lost life,
lost child.
she wept enough to fill an empty sea,
enough to save an empty soul.
until salt-shriveled skin shrunk
deep into her cavernous eyes;
she could cry no more,
the masks were gone.
you woke up,
and the angel swept under the current.

The 1722 Petit Albert describes in detail how to make a Hand of Glory, as cited from him by Grillot De Givry:

Take the right or left hand of a felon who is hanging from a gibbet beside a highway; wrap it in part of a funeral pall and so wrapped squeeze it well. Then put it into an earthenware vessel with zimat, nitre, salt and long peppers, the whole well powdered. Leave it in this vessel for a fortnight, then take it out and expose it to full sunlight during the dog-days until it becomes quite dry. If the sun is not strong enough put it in an oven with fern and vervain. Next make a kind of candle from the fat of a gibbeted felon, virgin wax, sesame, and ponie, and use the Hand of Glory as a candlestick to hold this candle when lighted, and then those in every place into which you go with this baneful instrument shall remain motionless
