Michael Ceraolo



from Cleveland Haiku

123

I cross a dozen
man-made boundaries,
but only one natural one

124

I cross man-made boundaries-
the street names change
for no reason at all


299

Economic depression-
another strip shopping center
stripped clean


306

Last hurrah-
spring snow dying, drying
even in the weak sunlight

308

Statues of heroes-
pigeons provide apt
editorial comment


Michael Ceraolo is a 'fortysomething' civil servant/poet trying to overcome a middle class upbringing.  Recent or forthcoming books include Cleveland Haiku (Green Panda Press) and Euclid Creek:  A Journey (Deep Cleveland Press).
