confession

the Vatican sits quiet this morning
only pigeons asking for an audience

their devotion wanting to be rewarded
returning each day ever faithful

not questioning God’s will for them
to fly above men and witness our folly

crowding at our feet they invite us to speak
finding in us the willingness to confess

but only to birds
