The stain

After Romans 5:12-21

The stain flowed
through one, a lethal
stain, so powerful
that it spread from one
to all, transmitted like
pieces of DNA never 
diluted to changed but
carried forward, offering
no escape, only death.

The cleansing flowed 
from one, a whitening
curative, so powerful
that any and all could
avail themselves of it,
transmitted as a learned
behavior, over and
over, offered free,
and freely.
