You can now imagine the tiger, after days, weeks, months, who knows what undetermined amount of time of trying and struggling to break that damm cage, losing the track of time, his teeth and claws hurting from battling the steel. The bars imprinted in its retina. Now, suddenly, for some reason, it broke. The tiger in shock stand there quiet for a second.
yes...
Maybe it was a mistake of his captor, maybe the lock loosened, broke, maybe the door was rusty... but the tiger did not care about the reason, his last struggle actually liberated him from captivity... his vision now providing a barless sky...
YES
The tiger jumps out of the cage, he remembers what it feels to be free. He wants to run, he wants to go home. He runs like a madman losing his breath under a clear sky.
The tiger is out.

Without ironic memery, this is a million times more evocative than Rupi.
The use of capital letters reflecting the growing intensity of the situation, and the brilliant fact it reads literally and evokes exciting imagery and can also be interpreted metaphorically.

There is not one poem of hers that lives up to this.
