I can’t help but ask a person
Who I just met
What their sign is.
As if it allows me to get a look into their soul
by knowing their astrological birthmark
and the stars that guide them.
When I ask girls that I think are
I nonchalantly ask them their sign
to muse about whether or not
The two of us can hit it off instantly.
When I ask guys for their signs
I am curious about whether we
will be bromantic buddies for life
Or raging bulls determined to destroy
But mostly, I ask for signs
because it’s one helluva conversation starter.
