Horrorscopes for March 2014
by Zack Kouns
Aries (March 21-April 19) -
Newborn. Hands clasping female hands. She bites at your fingers and whispers “Night”
Taurus (April 20-May 20) -
She runs on a boardwalk. A fairytale. A war where the good guys win in a savage country.
Gemini (May 21-June 21) -
I ask mother why she's unhappy. Light pours in on her from a window. I pull mother to me. She's a little girl in a courtyard and sunlight on the sea.
Cancer (June 22-July 22) -
The little French girl on the subway, teaching you how to treasure your sorrow. Sadness so quiet that you can hear electricity.
Leo (July 23-August 22) -
Cadmium. Lead. Sky on moving water. Birds singing the songs God taught them. You will learn the names of wildflowers.
Virgo (August 23-September 22) -
Houses in ruin and destitution. Lack of love. Paint peeling from the walls. God within me. Around me.
Libra (September 23-October 23) -
Mother and daughter in a pool, distorted by the hallucination of water. Discordant notes on an autoharp. The meridian. Earth's shadow.
Scorpio (October 24-November 21) -
World's far away from us. Smoke. Fog. She pulls you toward her but you're blue and shivering.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) -
Orchids. Blue dress. Black hands against stained glass. A lady tells you about her boyfriend beating the shit out of her and you put your coat around her. Saint Francis gathering birds on his shoulder.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19) -
She lives in a house with no front door and a flag on the porch with indigo buntings whips in the winter wind. We're never denied mercy. Our fear. Our hardness of heart.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18) -
Lovers at play. Children in the daylight. Motes of dust smaller than a grain of sand and larger than prairie grass in the snow bruised by the cold and trampled by horses.
Pisces (February 19-March 20) -
Snow around a thorn bush. One gentle kiss from behind. Ecstasy. Love makes us one.
