Eagle Island (a poem on patriotism and freedom)

Eagle Island (a poem on patriotism and freedom)

He sat serious on Eagle Island,
face blanched and wings clipped,
fearless, furied, and focused.

His stillness was so, the trees
around him writhed and twisted
in torment and mayhem, alive

and more liberated than this icon
of freedom: the whole world
spectated and moved on by . . .
