Who cares about poetry, anyway?

...poetry brings us back into our bodies by getting us to use language and mooring us in an urgent moment; poetry is good practice for the art of physical and emotional presence. The point: Poetry is about celebrating the physical moment with language.

Can someone explain what the phrase "back into our bodies" means? I've heard this said so many times and I don't understand what this means. I mean this seriously.
