2015 Poetry Post 10: She Could Be

The woman next
to me gushed when
she learned
I was an astronomer.
She asked me
the usual questions
and I was happy
to answer.
She said I
was so lucky
and I couldn't

She says
she wanted
to be
a scientist
she was good
I could tell her
that I'm sure
she would be
good enough,
but would that
be a kindness
to her?

I tend to think it's never too late to be an astronomer. Look at Brian May.
