Audio Poem: Sea of Row Homes by Mark Tulin

The poem was written several years ago and the print version is still on this site. I grew up in Philly back in the sixties and seventies. And I had many friends and family members who lived in a similar style of home. This is a tribute to their warm and comfy homes and the proud people of Northeast Philadelphia.

Sea of Row Homes by Mark Tulin

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.
