Rules of Confession

Grateful. Grateful. Grateful,

Now more than ever
I do not receive insurance
For anything I do
Or say.
The privacy of my office
The privacy of my office.
I have never been
So grateful
To not have
A license,
Only continued training
And supervision.
My office remains
Under the altar
In a church.
The rules of confession
Apply here,
Just as they apply
When I hear a confession
In the chapel.
The rules of confession.
I do everything
As the priest I have been
For over thirty years.
