Chuck Tripi appears extensively in literary publications, including Boston Review, Poet Lore, Natural Bridge, Hayden's Ferry Review, and Spillway. His previous collection is Carlo and Sophia, a Cyberwit best-seller. A retired airline pilot, he is founding partner of The Paulinskill Poetry Project, a boutique press and community resource for poets of the upper Delaware River region, USA.
Chuck has published his first book Carlo and Sophia (ISBN 9788182533783) with Cyberwit in 2013. Chuck Tripi's Carlo and Sophia turned best seller in 2014. Every poem in this collection affords a lesson in the use of imagery in the service of meaning, and meaning in the service of sense. How to understand a poem; how to understand a life, this life-that is what you will discover as you lose yourself in the pages of Carlo and Sophia.

So who, you may wonder, are Carlo and Sophia? Are they star-crossed lovers trying to reconcile what is with what should be? "What seemed implausible, / Carlo notices, begins to come true in the drift / of sleep and unreality, this generous prelude, rest." Are they an old married couple, satisfied to have weathered life's storms? "She loves the way the birch leaves turn to gold / before the end of August every year. / This reminds her of her impatient Carlo." Are they an allegorical pair, a post-modern Adam and Eve trying to make sense of the turbulent paradise of this world? "Carlo wanders by himself / among the stars or on the cliffs / or in the friendliness of his mind." Are they a symbol of duality, of paradox, body and spirit, thought and act...? Carlo and Sophia are all these possibilities, and more. They are, in fact, possibility itself.

Carlo and Sophia (Paperback) published by is available worldwide via Amazon USA and through publisher's site. The book is also available in India at Flipkart,, Infibeam and Ombooks.

Chuck published his second book Killer Pavement Ahead (ISBN 9788182536395) in 2015 again with In these rich and evocative poems, poet Chuck Tripi tells tales of growing up absurd among tail fins and Your Hit Parade, home improvements and alcohol, tales of the tincture of time with its passages and epiphanies, insights, reconciliations and release. Teeming with iconic images of suburban America in the 1950's, Killer Pavement Ahead engages the flourishing and withering of an urge to consumerism in a post-war baby boom culture. Killer Pavement Ahead (Paperback) published by is available worldwide via Amazon USA, India, Flipkart and through publisher's site.
