For this week's prompt, write a poem somehow influenced by an animal. The animal could be the title of the poem, the subject of the poem, a bit part in the poem. Dive into what it means to be animal or non-animal. Have fun.

Here's my attempt at an animal-influenced poem:

"Squirrel"

Nobody knows branches
the heart of this tree
dangers from above
and below
the way I do.
