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.

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.
