Cardinal (Quadrille)

Quadrille poetry form = 44 words & red bird. Thank you monkey.

Sins that stain a royal perch
are preened like smooth, red
berries –
but those of the cardinal’s beatific
corvax satin
hang on staggered boughs
like broken bread fed worshippers;
high and mighty – aloof.
Masquerading aloft, he knows
where you all are.
