A place bound

After Genesis 22:1-14 and Hebrews 11:17-19

Movement for three days
neither forward nor back
only to –
to a place
where servants and friends
cannot, do not, come
a place to sacrifice
to test, perhaps to hope
but a place bound by a thicket
where a ram awaits, provided,
a ram is caught
in the thicket, provided
a ram is substituted
