Resurrection Tuesday

Resurrection Tuesday

written by: Judge Burdon


The subversive scheme

of benevolent intention

Fades with the last smile of summer

Sounding an aluminum voice

With an echo of fragile breath

Silence interrupts the

Applause of thunder

Sentiments of affection

Now a crippling disability

Unable to outrun the future

You’re long ago in pursuit

On the heels of memory’s shadow.

Littering an already tortured landscape

with leaves of a weathered reputation

The forecast calling for a season of scandal

Created on this resurrection Tuesday.

Judge Burdon

On an unseasonably cool July morning in Chicago, equivalent to David Copperfield, Judge Santiago Burdon was born on a Friday. The Bronte sisters, Keats, Burns and Dickens inspired his study of English Literature. He attended Universities in the United States, London and Paris directing his focus on Victorian novels and authors.
His short stories and poems have been featured in; The Remnant Leaf, Stay Weird and Keep Writing, Independent Writer's Podcast, Spillwords, The Beatnik Cowboy, Down in the Dirt Magazine, The Raven Cage, Eskimo Pie, Across The Margin, Story Pub, Scarlet Leaf Review, Horror Sleaze Trash, The Stray Branch and Anti-Heroin Chic.
"Stray Dogs and Deuces Wild Cautionary Tales" the first book from Santiago was published by HST Publishing in January. He is presently engaged in finishing his book "Imitation of Myself." A non-fiction story encompassing his experiences as a drug runner for a Mexican Cartel. He celebrated his 66th birthday last July and lives modestly in Costa Rica.
