Acts of Self-Hatred - Katie Ellen Bowers

My horoscope tells me that I may be

the cause of my own sadness, as if

I could change the way the Moon

pulls and pushes water from the shores;

I wax and wane just as she does.

Venus wants to ground me

into the land, so I cover myself

with soil and hope flowers sprout up,

while Jupiter tells me to try

and not commit any acts of self-hatred,

at least for today, as if

he can conquer the Moon.


Katie Ellen Bowers was raised in Charleston, SC, but is now sowing seeds with her husband and daughter in the small, rural town of Heath Springs, SC.
