About That Poet Lady

Why do poets start reading
Their poems with a look in their
Eyes like they’re about
To jump off a cliff?
Why do they gaze around
The room like they are lost
And place their hands in such
A way like they are holding
The world in their hands?
Or what about that
Crook in their eyebrow?
What does that mean?
Do they feel stranded,
Without a way of continuing?
Because it sure looks like they have
Their poem,
Their map,
Right in their hands.
