Getting to the Heart of the Matter With Author Alicia Winski

Getting to the Heart of the Matter With Author Alicia Winski
I asked Alicia Winski a series of questions,
What does beauty mean to her? Where does your strength come from? What her objectives are as a poet? and the questions ar far less important than the answers.
After reviewing the interview I began to see a poem so, impromptu, I deciphered the following poem from her answers. The following words are all Alicia's...I will take credit for clever editing (BUT only because she will choke me if I don't.)
Getting to the Heart of the Matter
Beauty moves me withinshifts my sensesmakes me stop and thinkBeauty is finding something strong and special in the weak and artificial
To show others what I see through my eyesto show them the beautiful within the dark and ugly
show them who I amsearch for a deeper meaningtrite as that soundsto strip the surface emotions and get down to the heart of the matter
I dont know.I just know that I have to go on. there's something more out there that goes beyond the reach of hardship  there is something just within my graspand I have to keep reaching for it or die spiritually and emotionally
I'm not willing to die yet
