Cheryl Caesar



One rotten apple may not spoil the barrel.
But one bad orange puts us all in peril.

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, Agony Opera, and Nationalism, a Zimbabwean anthology; and other poetry in Cream and Crimson, Total Eclipse, Prachya, The Trinity Review, The Mojave River Review, and Panoply. When it’s all too much, 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.
