Week 15 – Cattails

Cattails

I sit on an early morning train to New York City,

And it doesn’t even occur to me to think of you.

 

Instead, I watch the wind on the meadowlands,

And try to tell cattails from phragmites.

 

I wonder if the beauty,

Is that after all this time,

Some days, I still can’t tell the difference.
