Skin Sense: A Really Short Story by Dan Weber

Skin Sense: A Really Short Story by Dan Weber

Garth Pomas was shedding. One layer at a time, his supple skin was dropping off in subways, apartment complexes, and men’s clothing stories. Pomas was a freak of nature to be sure, but he was, nonetheless, a humanitarian.

“Don’t ┬ábe quick to judge this man,” the blind people of the town said. “He’s a Godsend to us…giving us encouragement, hope, a new outlook, and all the skin we can eat.”

Yep, Garth Pomas may not have been the world’s most attractive man, what with blood and pus oozing out of 87% of his body. But there was a small town in Ohio that knew the world would be a whole lot less fun without him.

The end.

C'mon, Ya'll!
