The Lawyer with the Fake Eye, by Mark Tulin/Short Story Town

Big shoutout to Steve Carr at Short Story Town for publishing this humorous story, “The Lawyer with the Fake Eye.” Once on the site, scroll down to 9/18/2021 for the story, and read the others as well.

“My wife died twenty years ago,” said Mr. Hemp with bitterness in his voice. “We were married for forty years. So when she fell off a Big Sur cliff after she posed for a picture. I was angry initially, thinking God did me a horrible disservice. Then I realized that she wasn’t monitoring my calorie intake anymore, and I could eat the foods I liked. By the way, the pastrami they have at Herb’s Deli down the street is to die for.”

–Excerpt from The Lawyer with the Fake Eye

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.
