Confession

Let’s leave absolution
to the priests or to God.
If you need to fall
to your knees and beg
forgiveness do it
at the altar, not at my
feet. We both have sins
written on our souls
like scars that we
must bear because
we loved, or something
that hurt like love. I’m
letting you go like a dove
to the wind, for Christ’s sake
don’t crash into the clear
window just when your
wings have healed.
