4 – Savvy, I turn

I turn you on to
my attention
to the convictions
that brought me
to this

gold in clean air
tears in water
ink in earth

I turn eyeful
the end of these sentences
toward hurts – please –
turn a phrase upon others
turn cold when martial law
turns heel on floor.

I turn towards the end
Sauvignon Blanc in hand
my head totally around
turn turtle to the left.

I turn into the thing
I’ve always feared: savvy,

the world in on itself
turns slowly, step by step
upon the point of this pin.

I French I English
I a Canadian pumpkin
turn the world on with my smile
and catch in my refracted eye
the shadow of uncertainty
and turn and turn and turn and turn
