    Charles' works are some of the most beautiful, heartfelt pieces I have come across. His narrations, at once portray a vibrancy, tenderness and understanding of the human condition in all its guises. He introduces us to total strangers who quickly become so familiar. I love to come across a new piece by Charles, I know that it is going to be exciting before I even become aware of its existence. Bernstein is the classic model of the everyman, but is surrounded by many everymen whose worlds are at one, intimate and universal.

    I like your poems although they differ a great deal from the way I write (in a good way) . You think up the greatest endings and I like the way you do your poetry as stories that to me can be taken several different ways. Your work is truely great...

    Interesting and original. I'm always looking for your comments (even on others' works) because they're so creative. Just the way it should be poetry as a question, poetry as an answer! Looking forward to seeing new pieces!

    The poem Gone was touching. By purposely making the style casual and detached, almost going like a newspaper report, you have rendered the truth of the old man's death even more stark and the pain of his wife, piercing.

    Your poems sound like you are used to reporting events of this kind. Do not mind but are you a journalist? I like the conversational tone which I noted in that other new poem too. By doing that you include the reader in the experience as well.

Best Poem of Charles Chaim Wax

A Woman Of Distinction

just finished
studying Shakespeare
at Wisconsin for my MA
then teaching
in Spinoza high school
a kid, myself, really
had Laura Adair
in my VW bus
just hopped in
didn’t know where
I was going
told her
heading for Greenpoint
to see the building
where Henry Miller
was born
if Administration found out
I woulda been canned
but like I said,
a kid myself
and Laura 19
never gonna finish
to do what?
but the girl fascinated
me, not anything sexual
more like admiration
when we reached
the Brooklyn Queens ...

Read the full of A Woman Of Distinction

First Time Out West

cannot go on
forty miles from the Colorado border
in Kansas
temperature at
one hundred and four
unbelievable heat desolation
started out in Salina
