Yeah, I Know One Limits One’s Audience By Making Astrology References In Poetry

Mars conjunct Pluto in my Capricorn Sun
making me feisty and it’s December 2012
and there’s no knowing what will be next
and I’ve been quaffing coffee
and things are getting G R A N D I O S E.

O Muse, abandon me not! There may yet be hope
I’ll rise up through the light
break my beating heart out of this rib cage and
belt out your brilliant song.
