SATURN DEVOURING HIS SON

Michael La Bombarda

He looks fiendish and startled,
Having finished eating the head
And about to start
On the left arm
Of his son,
Caught in the act
By Goya,
But most parents
Get away with it,
Devouring the good faith
Of their children
Until there is nothing left,
But facsimiles
Who reproduce
And eat their own kids
In turn,
But are caught in the act
By those too selfish
Or too wise
To spawn.


Michael La Bombarda has had work published in Five Plus Five and the Low-Tech Manual (both Low-Tech Press, NYC), Appearances magazine, Public Illumination Magazine and New Leaves Review. He has forthcoming work in The Unbearables Big Book of Sex (Autonomedia/Unbearable Books).
