Charley is one of my favorite writers. His poetry is thought provoking, intense, and at times, witty. Enjoy!

“When the lips are silent,
the heart has a hundred tongues.”
These still moments roll
between you and I, charged
with blue voltage that feeds.
We are not filling the spaces
with devices and parlor tricks.
You open the spaces, smiling.
I span the spaces with fluttering –
wings carry our love tree to tree.
