I wake to a moan.
Hungry cat behind the door?
Or my own belly?


Cheryl Caesar

Cheryl Caesar lived in Paris, Tuscany and Sligo for 25 years; she earned her doctorate in comparative literature at the Sorbonne and taught literature and phonetics. She now teaches writing at Michigan State University. She gives frequent readings locally. Since January, she has published political protest poems in Writers Resist, The Mark Literary Review, Cream and Crimson, Agony Opera, Winedrunk Sidewalk, The Stay Project What Rough Beast, and Nationalism, a Zimbabwean anthology, and other poetry in Total Eclipse, Prachya, The Trinity Review, The Mojave River Review, Panoply, Dormiveglia, Academy of the Heart and Mind, The Black Coffee Review, The Wild Word, Bleached Butterfly and Beautiful Cadaver. When the world is too much with her, she escapes in books, cats and Michigan lakes. She dreams of swimming in an infinity pool of warm salt water, as she once did in Palermo
