Maxim

Maxim Gorki

embittered youth
among the wretched of the earth

enemy of Cossacks
comrade of the working man
opponent of the order

to write is to reorder
to write is to recast the outcast

when you hear his name now
smut trumps tuberculosis

breasts in the West
Gorky dies a thousand deaths

breasts in the West
Gorky dies a thousand deaths
