The promise

After Genesis 3:1-19

To be promised a bruise,
a bruise on another’s heel,
is odd, I know, and unusual,
I know, for somehow a bruise
on another’s heel becomes
the sign of the way out,
our way out,
the light at the end of the tunnel,
our light at the end,
and it’s where the bruise happens,
on that heel.
