GAS Featured Poet: Jason Ryberg

Jason Ryberg is the author of fourteen books of poetry,
six screenplays, a few short stories, a box full of folders,
notebooks and scraps of paper that could one day be
(loosely) construed as a novel, and, a couple of angry
letters to various magazine and newspaper editors.
He is currently an artist-in-residence at both 

The Prospero Institute of Disquieted P/o/e/t/i/c/s 

and the Osage Arts Community, and is an editor 

and designer at Spartan Books. His latest collection

of poems is Are You Sure Kerouac Done It This Way!?

(co-authored with John Dorsey, and Victor Clevenger,

OAC Books, 2021).

Just a few scattered stars,

here and there, though I suppose


the stars are always there,

night or day, as well as always


rushing away from us (and each other),

they say, towards some ever-receding


frontier or event horizon-like moment

of maximum elasticity when the whole


thing has spread out about as far

as it can to one uniform temperature


and consistency and slowly begins to

contract and reverse-engineer itself back


into a condensed and combustible state

that’s ready for another big bang.
