POEM: "The Turn"

The Turn

You've been brave that way
no stopping in the tunnel

so Li'l Buck just danced today
won't you dance he was asking
but there's no need to answer that
sometimes bravery's just a sudden thing
now consider if you’re dancing high
in gunfire shelling or screams
when did you turn into wolf
smell of gun oil in your bed
the big swans dying from love?
