Audio Poem: Changing Zip Codes, by Mark Tulin

I want to thank the ScienceDuuude at Woodworkers of the World Unite for publishing Changing Zip Codes. This is a poem about my most recent move from Ventura, CA to Palm Springs, CA. The move was unexpected and unwanted at the time. A washing machine fiasco flooded our apartment and caused extensive water damage, and thus we needed to find a new home ASAP. In a week’s time, we secured a house, a mover, packed, and in our new amazing home with 1,001 boxes to unpack in Palm Springs. For more info about the washing machine issue, read my recent post Broken Washer, Healthy Spirit. Click play to listen or the three tiny dots. Thank you.

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.

  1. Wonderful audition. The feeling of being confronted with things that don’t work in the way the myth says they should. Speaking of bubble warp, at work the other day the boss handed me halg a rols and said pop it in the corner. It took me six hours to pop every one of those little bubbles!

  2. I enjoyed you that much .. I replayed it Mark… well done… I need your voice at my open mic’ nights.. πŸ˜‰

  3. Your poem is the story of my twenties and thirties.
