Poem: Heart-Shaped Crack by Mark Tulin


A heart-shaped crack

only comes out

when I bend over

I never see it

but others do

Intriguing some,

grossing out others

It’s just there

unbeknownst to me

A sight

people look at

but would rather not see.


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.
