different stairs – v3

one and the other
clear demarcations
unclean and clean
meaning in the ancient baths
preceding Jesus, older
different stairs for entering
and for returning
foretelling John
the bath in the Jordan
as Christ did himself
to justify,
to sanctify,
to make holy
the baths for washing
ritual purity
entering dirty
and exiting clean
