to turn


TO: The Teachers

confute me, confuse
obfuscate, paralyze
visual or textual learner? inquire

what I am
Is it because of what
“You” (teachers plural) taught?

I’ll never forget my
Old English language professor
who put me back together
one lost and horrible morning.

I came back to the university, but the hospital was the only
place to go at that moment.

Hm. All I remember
about Old English is
the root word “vert”.
Appropriate, as my professor
“turned” my path
for the better.

So. I am what I am
in large part because of
my teachers. And I will be forever
grateful to their commitment.
