Poem: Flew With Angels by Mark Tulin

I put you on a pedestal

while I wore rags

and slept in the park

I thought you flew with angels,

thought your words

flowed like truth

from the heavens

I was duped

into believing,

you tricked me

with your cunning smile

and good intentions

I fooled myself

with hope’s illusion

while my back

was turned.


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.
