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 Dickens' David Copperfield, Judge Burdon was born on a Friday. His mother theorized it was so he would be in time for weekend festivities.
His fascination by the predominance of the written word inspired his study of English Literature. He attended Universities in the United States, London and Paris to continue his life's scholarship focusing on Victorian novels and authors.
His writing career to date has been devoted primarily to poetry and songwriting. Short stories and poems have been featured in: The Remnant Leaf, Stay Weirdand Keep Writing, Independent Writer's Blog and Anti-Heroin Chic. 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. Judge celebrated his 65th birthday last July and lives modestly in Costa Rica.
