Broken Washer, Healthy Spirit, by Mark Tulin/Being Known


I have moved four times in the last eight years. The last one I describe in this prose poem. It was the most difficult and stressful, complicated by my health challenges and the abruptness of the situation. If we didn’t have the resources or the friends, we very likely would have been homeless. As we wait for the moving van to arrive at our new location, I wonder how long our luck will last and hope we can stay long enough to memorize the address.

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.
