Horrorscopes for May 2014
by Zack Kouns
Aries (March 21-April 19) -
Wasp out on the window pane, frantically flinging it's tender body against the glass. Sky harrased by clouds. Clover. Beyond.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) -
You are the smooth borown yellow clover thrown into the water by the dead child.
Gemini (May 21-June 21) -
What fallen city reflected in the pond that thirsts?
Cancer (June 22-July 22) -
Ozark Trillium pulled from it's source, wilting and not knowing why.
Leo (July 23-August 22) -
Your hands on barbed wire, prairie grass and the mournful call of the Carolina Wren who gives the depths of our grief recondite expression.
Virgo (August 23-September 22) -
Bind your wrists. Grain scatters in the fields and finds no homeland.
Libra (September 23-October 23) -
Shadows of wildflowers that haven't been named circle on the ceiling of a house in decline. Where does that light come from?
Scorpio (October 24-November 21) -
Paint your heart redder than the meridian or Primroses in the fall. Longing.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) -
Steady yourself against the Birch whose thin, white arms hold nothing in the winter. Overwhelmed by that first sorrow who tends to reappear.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19) -
Staircase and the light was shy to shine on her bare ankles for fear of profaning her visions of God and the many faces of His Love.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18) -
A wicker chair. A foundling evergreen tree. A cedar home with workers in the vineyard. Love is boundless. No bonds or bounds.
Pisces (February 19-March 20) -
Lips as blue as God's summer sky longing for air and flesh, ruined houses collapsing into fields.
