Many Things Wonderful

By Jason Ryberg

Many Things Wonderful to Tell


The mad monkish scientist of jazz
sits smiling at the grand unveiling of his

latest creation, while a railroad bridge
riveted together of mostly weathered

driftwood and old rusty pieces of scrap
iron shows us the nearest way to many 

possible futures where, amongst many
other things wonderful to tell in this 

hot and swampy Sargasso sea of broken-
down cars, campers, bicycles and boats,

a lone pristine Cadillac sits, ready for
lift-off, to take us to what all the locals

swear is the best damn greasy spoon 
diner in the galaxy.

Jason Ryberg 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).
