A Poet Speaks
by James Dalton Byrd

She stands before us
to open her heart
so that we are given
new vistas within ourselves.
She becomes vulnerable
to her own words.
Words winding around her,
giving quick flashes
of who she is.
A sacrifice that
makes those words
greater in meaning,
tightening the webs,
and pulling her in
to the soft trap
of herself.
