no one can find out.
the reality of sin is different for everyone
but this one is unanimously followed under
let’s face it, these white walled churches
have always been selective in their acceptance,
perhaps penance can be found in the
silent movement of shoulders to hips
unsung in dusty hallways
or refractions of stained glass memories,
rosaries kept safe in jewelry boxes,
and redemption suits a criminal just fine
but who would be willing
to hear the confessions of a priest?
