Bethany takes the slip of paper and unfolds it. "Read it," I urge enthusiastically.
She looks it over quizzically, puzzled, squinting, then she turns the page over to see if there's anything on the back. Something in her understands it's short and she looks back at the words written, scrawled in red, on the front of the page.
"It's like haiku, you know?" I say. "Read it. Go on."
She clears her throat and hesitantly begins reading, slowly, stopping often. " 'The tiger...' " She pauses and squints again at the paper, then hesitantly resumes. " 'He destroyed his cage... Yes..' " She stops again, faltering, looks at me, confused, then back at the paper.
"Go on," I say, looking around for a waiter. "Finish it."
She clears her throat and staring steadily at the paper tries to read the rest of it in a voice below a whisper. " 'Yes... The tiger...' " She falters again, then reads the last sentence, sighing. " 'The tiger... is out?' "
The couple at the next table have slowly turned to gaze over at us. The man looks aghast, the woman has an equally horrified expression on her face. I stare her down, glaring, until she looks back at her fucking salad.
"Well, Nael," Bethany says, clearing her throat, trying to smile, handing the paper back to me.
"Yes?" I ask. "Well?"
"I can see that" – she stops, thinking – "that your sense of... animal rights is" – she clears her throat again and looks down – "still intact."

Children's poetry is among some of the best I've read. They have an uncanny ability to capture and transmit emotion. Somehow they manage to use exactly the right words, something that experienced writers struggle with.

I'll post two (translated) ones I like. All these are written by children refugees fleeing war. Unfortunately I don't have the book that collects these, so I'm limited to the ones I can find.

We need your help, dove!
Come to us, we need your help.
Dove, we need help

Otherwise we'll die.

Nael fully realizes the Nietzschean will to power, as embodied by the eponymous tiger. The hyper masculine imagery compounds this with worship of the human body as divine or close to it, hearkening back to Grecian hero worship as he masterfully incorporates the rich eastern metaphysical symbology behind the tiger to branch western philosophical tradition with that of eastern spirituality. The famous yes/YES line is the epitome of the human struggle, wherein raw emotion ultimately sanctifies the individual and breaks the chains of over-conceptualized thought as developed in a high or post-industrial society.
On the other hand, Galko makes a pessimistic return to nature, wherein man falls into self destructive and cyclical sin (I blow on the lead/ And it hits me back). His egoist stance rejects the traditional family structure, and embraces absurdist reality by acknowledging true knowledge or meaning is ultimately beyond our comprehension (kids don't know everything). Ultimately, his Gothic, anti-transcendentalist stance was already covered comprehensively in the late 19th century, and doesn't do much to rival the revelatory synthesis of his contemporary Nael. If Galko can reorganize his thoughts in a more emotive and powerful form, perhaps he can create a post-gothic school behind him, but I doubt he will become a legitimate match for Nael even then.

“For appetizers I have the sun-dried tomatoes and golden caviar with poblano chilies and I also have a fresh endive soup—” “Wait a minute, wait a minute,” I say, holding up a hand, stopping him. “Hold on a minute.” “Yes sir?” the waiter asks, confused. “You have? You mean the restaurant has,” I correct him. “You don’t have any sun-dried tomatoes. The restaurant does. You don’t have the poblano chilies. The restaurant does. Just, you know, clarify.” The waiter, stunned, looks at Bethany, who handles the situation deftly by asking him, “So how is the endive soup served?” “Er… cold,” the waiter says, not fully recovered from my outburst, sensing he’s dealing with someone very, very on edge.
