Excerpt from Somewhat Optimistic Horoscopes by Kenneth Ronkowitz


The following poem appears in our Autumn 2016 issue. The entire issue is available for immediate download.

Aries: You woke up again today.

Taurus: Nothing bad can happen to you as you read this.

Gemini: Even if you can’t see them, the Sun and Moon are watching over you.

Cancer: In a parallel universe, you are laughing.

Leo: Someone loves you. Perhaps, they will tell you tomorrow.

Virgo: You didn’t notice, but someone noticed you yesterday, and just thought about you again.
