Poem: Over-Tuned Fiddle by Mark Tulin

Like an over-tuned fiddle,

the music is painful,

notes of neglect,

stanzas of heartache.

Hamstrings don’t lie,

we do.

The players, the athletes of life

don’t know when to stop

until the tight hamstring

meets its edge,

crying out.

I am an author, poet, humorist, and short story writer from Palm Springs, California. I write about various topics, from my early childhood in Philadelphia to my years as a family therapist and finally to my soul-searching in California. These are poetic narratives that may have humorous or serious content or both. Either way, I hope my poetry and stories resonate with you.
