Poem: Dr. Jekyll by Mark Tulin


The holy man scares me

He teeters on the edge

of light and darkness

of right and wrong

of truth and falsehood

There’s a fine line

between good and evil

from pious to the diabolical

and he crosses that line

back and forth

Dr. Jekyll to Mr. Hyde.


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.
