Penguin chorus: We are with Emily Dickinson, hooman.

Visitor: How so, friends?

Penguin: She said, "If I read a book and it makes my whole body so cold no fire can ever warm me, I know that is poetry."

Tiger: And what about the rest?

Penguin chorus: "If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry."

Tiger: Perhaps you would like to attend my Dickinson workshop.

Penguin chorus: *shiver*
