Time to see the priest
He is strapped into his wheelchair
behind the various gizmos
that bring him to life
She chats to him as she tidies up.
Slumped in his chair he is silent.
He is unable to answer her.
She gets ready for their usual walk
but today he won't be going.
She is going out on her own.
As she sits in a pew at St Josephs
she thinks about his vacant expression
whilst she waits for Father Thomas
to hear her confession
