Your Cardinal

Inside you’ve always had a cardinal
who sorts out the unpardonable
from the sins he will permit you to let slide.

But lately he does not appear to care too
much about what’s happening on either side.
He seems to have lost interest both

in damning and in pardoning. Perhaps
he’d rather putter ‘round the pantry,
or be in the backyard gardening.
