About five teardrops you turn your glance away from (5)
I believe the answer is:
'about five teardrops you turn your glance' is the definition.
I can't judge whether this definition defines the answer.
'away from' is the wordplay.
'away' becomes 'A' (abbreviation as used in sports fixtures).
'from' becomes 'vert' (I am not sure about this - if you are sure you should believe this answer much more).
Can you help me to learn more?
(Other definitions for avert that I've seen before include "use preventive measures" , "Ward off (bad event)" , "Turn away from, say gaze" , "Obviate" , "Ward off, deflect" .)
