#190 Titanic Days

Torn from Picasso, &
further torn—bather
from sea, or mother

from baby. The clothes
torn from her. Then
ravaged. About to be.

Victim & aggressor. A
classic dialectic. Shadow
given substance, form

taken on. Is classical.
Modern. Zeus in a
business suit? No

less likely than white
bull, white swan, a
shower of gold. He

falls across her, he falls
upon her. One outline.
The form taken on is

taken from Goya, Kronos
devouring one of his
children. Titanic days.
