Poetry Tuesday's Picture

Poem Tuesday: Not Home by Mark Tulin


I try to talk to him,

but he never answers.

There’s always a busy signal

or a recording that says:

I’m out of town right now,

but please leave a brief message,

your name, number

and the reason you called.

Have a pleasant day,


Author, poet, short story writer from Santa Barbara, California. I write about a variety of topics, from my early childhood in Philadelphia, to my years as a family therapist, and finally to my soul-searching present in California. These are narratives that may have a humorous or serious content or both. Either way, I hope my poetry and stories resonate with you.
