Ann Neuser Lederer

Hover of Nets All Over

Flared, bitten banners
whose mouths mouth syllables
trying to lip-read loosely in the failing light

In fibrous, padded wind tunnels
    fingers finger the plasticy bas-reliefs,
descending towards uncertain ranges

                               towards sudden static

copters, which ought to paint arrows

All Deserts Color Coded

blues of their densities clotted,

yellows indelible
        shadows concentric
circles outbound to the west

Ann Neuser Lederer was born in Ohio and has also lived and worked in Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Kentucky as a Registered Nurse. Prior to nursing she studied art and earned degrees in Anthropology. Her nonfiction and poetry appear in online and print journals; anthologies such as Bedside Guide, A Call To Nursing,  The Country Doctor Revisited, and Best of the Net; and in her chapbooks Approaching Freeze, The Undifferentiated, and Weaning the Babies.
