Gorbachev

the new hero can let it fail
allow the dissolve –
in an historical divide,
severing the heart attack tight
knot of man’s blood lazy past
from the kinetic minded present

we are left in a much improved world
where there is bravery in surrender
and honor in failure
and if you cannot accept this betterment
as a noble truth, well then
as Marcellus Wallace once said,
“That’s pride fucking with you. Fuck pride.”
