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.
