Sonnets do it. Haiku do it.
Even stage plays and bikes do it.
Let's do it! Let's make a turn.
Write a poem that includes a distinct thematic turn. In other words, your post this week might start out being about one thing and end up being about something else. You might deepen or shift perspectives part way through. Or your original topic might trigger a digression or diversion into new territory. Perhaps you will argue with or refute yourself or someone else. Perhaps the style of your poem will turn from long lines to short or from high-tone language to gutter jargon.
The turn may be obvious or subtle, sudden or gradual, drastic or nuanced. Turn around, bright eyes.
