Humor: Trapped in a Roomful of Poets by Mark Tulin/MuddyUm

Many thanks to the great humor site MuddyUm for publishing Trapped in a Roomful of Poets. Featured image by Luis Alvarez Catala, public domain, Wikipedia Commons. Excerpt:

“The first poet was an older woman. She came to the mic and announced that her favorite poet was Gertrude Stein because her friends said she looked like Gertrude Stein. She read a poem she wrote during a Paris vacation entitled, Whatever Happened to Alice B. Tookasโ€Š-โ€ŠI Don’t Know. The poem was in three parts. The first part was terrible, the second part worse, and the third part horrendous…”

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.
