Poetry Roundup: Asimov's July 2010

The Gears of New August by Bruce Boston and Todd Hanks

A fairly interesting poem about the hardship of a farmer on an alien world. Drops a reference to The Green Hills of Earth, but he misses Earth in a more sad way, especially considering he once yearned for the stars. A more thoughtful, sad poem than anything else thus far this year in Asimov's.
My third favorite Asimov's poem for the year, overall.

Neosaur by Robert Borski

In the future, we can recreate prehistoric goldfish pets for our children. Okay, not great, not really thoughtful either. But not poorly written.
