Between by Mark Tulin

Much thanks to In Parentheses for publishing Between and three of my other poems. Featured image by Geralt on Pixabay.com.


Half in this earth, half in the hereafter,
one foot out, the other in
I’m caught between two planes,
life and death,
connection and disconnect
The world that bores me,
and the other that doesn’t exist
The train that arrives,
and the one that leaves
for the final station,
on the journey, I’ve never been.

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.
