Horrorscopes for April 2015
by Zack Kouns
Aries (March 21-April 19) -
Fire billowing against the backdrop of the darkness of night. This is us, sometimes.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) -
Dung in the spaces between tiles. Gaze out something so lovely that you never could have expected it.
Gemini (May 21-June 21) -
Paint peeling from billboards, a human eye gouged out by the knives of rain. Knowingness.
Cancer (June 22-July 22) -
Heiroglyphs in sandstone. Discovering creatures shuddering with joy, bells around their ankles.
Leo (July 23-August 22) -
The shadow of the temple. This is us. Fertile valley in the light of the early morning that shocks with its purity.
Virgo (August 23-September 22) -
Skeletons of trees in the distance trying to hide in the haze of the heat. Warmth seems to be what we're composed of.
Libra (September 23-October 23) -
Night sky gathers in the evening. Finding shelter in a cave. Bodies in this shelter. Microorganisms in the bodies. Existence is a banquet.
Scorpio (October 24-November 21) -
Carve It into rock. Let the sun in the desert make It whole. Wind and height and clouds spilling over It. Great bodies of water reflect It. Life. You.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) -
Tree shivering against a cloudless sky, losing its light. You are a Korean man who has been shot in the shoulder and collapses. The fluid of blood flowing to join.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19) -
Grass huts weathering a storm. Tusks. Teeth. All meaning to harm.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18) -
Rocks teeming with lizards who climb over top of one another to experience the miraculous nature of light more directly.
Pisces (February 19-March 20) -
Do we think of sand and hills of stone when we kiss our lover's thigh? When our lover places their tongue on our nipple lovingly, do we then know the ridges of mountains formed by water that knows how to consecrate beauty? Is sunlight a deft and searching hand on an expectant sexual organ?
