Poetry Roundup: Asimov's January 2011

Five Pounds of Sunlight by Geoffrey A. Landis

Kittens are nice and like sunlight in several ways. An interesting comparison, but entirely based on being cutesy.

Retired Spaceman by G.O. Clark

Some nice rhythm in this melancholy bit about a kid who loved space, tried hard to be an astronaut, and looks back from old age regretting his failure to become part of the future he dreamed of. Best of issue, but not great.
