Tessa, The Eagle’s Call

My spirit animal has a beak,
is tawny, spreads wings.
It calls down to you,
trust me you’d like this

swoops down, you still hanging on,
existential, world weary,
grown passive-aggressive
with a lop-sided eye.

Prompt:
So this is Day 2.

Write an animal spirit poem (or spirit animal poem). What I’m thinking is to make the title of the poem the animal and then write a poem as if you are that animal. Or look at ways you identify with that animal. Another possibility (if this is too New Age): Write a poem about an animal. Period.
