Autumn in New York

Cabbage Flowers in Union Square
I lived on Union Square West, next to Coffee Shop when I first moved to New York. It was lost on me then, an 18 year old fresman at NYU, what an amazing neighborhood I was in! I go to the Union Square Greenmarket more often than I used to. I especially like the fresh cut flowers and these beautiful cabbages!

In Death

That you were to return,
from the ravages of war
fought on foreign soil
(in a body bag).
That I were to sit,
facing the honor guard
in their dress blues.
The folded flag
resting on your mother’s lap.
