Michael Ceraolo Debuts

Cleveland Cinquains

Creek’s edge-
in the backyard
of a suburban house
carved deer are permanently on

Fake deer
at a second
suburban residence
is unartistically posed as
a pet

deer’s dilemma:
to opt for death by car
or death by suicide leap from
the bridge


Michael Ceraolo is a 58-year-old retired firefighter/paramedic and active poet who has had one full-length book (Euclid Creek, from Deep Cleveland Press) and a few shorter-length books published, plus numerous magazine publications.
