NASA doesn’t want me

I would make a terrible astronaut
for many reasons:

I find details tedious
I get motion sick
I don’t particularly like math.

But perhaps the main reason
is that I could never take a vow
to expect the worst thing to happen,
and then the next worst thing
to happen after that.

But it’s what makes me admire them the most,
this ability to painstakingly plan
for catastrophes
yet still hold room
in their hearts
for so much awe.
