Anatoly Gomely

22 Jun

had bad teeth
and bad taste in music (A-Ha’s Take on Me was his fave)
disguised his life of crime in Moscow
by telling everyone he was a cameraman for ORT
bought himself an artificial replacement for a larynx
but continued to smoke Marlboro reds
owned a dog named Winston
(for the famous Churchill)
kept his money in a dresser in the middle of his bedroom
did hits as part of a gang called Colectiva
and in his spare time
he manufactured brooms
and made head cheese
which he would send by train
to his elderly mother in Balashov
Anatoly Gomely
was never any good
at chess
