"I want to read one of these in my newspaper daily and then when they're done to get them in my newspaper all over again from the beginning. They are keen, talky, funny, immediate, clear, kind, and more. Welcome to a beguiling set of new constellations." --Aimee Bender "The future cannot exist without the invention of debt, debt that bonds us with time beyond the immediate. Oh, and we owe much to the prescient prestidigitation of Nik De Dominic's imperative and dimension-warping poems that, time and time again, rip time a new portal. And predictably you always and already know that when you read this book you will find yourself finding yourself in those past pasts and in those future futures. And there you are being struck dumb by the brilliant anticipatory insight and elegant grace of this work--the smart smartness, the dumbest of luck." --Michael Martone "Equal parts hilarious, perplexing, and touching, these gently sardonic love songs to the quotidian bounce along like visionary tumbleweeds on a mission to gather up all the detritus, absurdity, music, and stink of the human condition. Masterfully messy when messy is called for, taut where it counts, these poems remind me of lying on the carpet at 2am with a spectacularly charming friend, the scent of jasmine and some random neighbor's takeout co-mingling into a really astonishing jazz." --Louise Mathias "De Dominic's YOUR DAILY HOROSCOPE does what no longer seemed possible in the so-called Modern Age: it rejuvenates an old, mostly maligned form. Open these pages and prepare yourself to be foiled, to be surprised inside each poem and from one poem to another. What feels unlikely at first will soon feel fated, but the reverse won't always be true: the stars, De Dominic intuits, are and are not for you." --Mark Yakich
