Humor: The Toe of Gout! by Mark Tulin/R U Joking

"Gout gets in the way of everything. Even the bass from my neighbor’s stereo agitates my toe. My cat’s heavy butt on my foot sends pain waves directly to my brain. When my joints get inflamed, I walk with a limp and grimace every few seconds while the rest of the world whizzes past me."

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.
