Poem: "Black Moon Promise" by Judge Santiago Burdon

Black Moon Promise
Judge Santiago Burdon

Bathroom confessions
backdoor redemption
Black moon promise
made to a leather winged Angel

Afterglow addict disciple of dawn
woman standing at the edge of love
listening for the silence in between the words
whispered by an ambidextrous tongue.

Loiterer in dim luminescence
under bloodshot skies.
beautiful visions reminding her of horrible things
knowing the best part of truth is the lies

Casualty of kindness
twilight apostle
feeling what is not her favorite color
A song of flawed perfection
a bitter taste on her lips
Its melody fading
along with the last smile of summer
