Jason Ryberg is currently listening to an old transistor radio

play nothing but sad songs in a room that rents for $20 / hour,

in a motel (owned by the sheriff's brother-in-law, they say) out

by the highway on just another hot and nasty Saturday night,

just outside of just another Damned If I Know, USA. Every

now and then a truck or car or bus speeds by. Every now and

then a star falls. Most of the time there's never any trouble.

John Dorsey lived for several years in Toledo, Ohio. He is the author of several collections of poetry, including Teaching the Dead to Sing: The Outlaw's Prayer (Rose of Sharon Press, 2006), Sodomy is a City in New Jersey (American Mettle Books, 2010), Tombstone Factory, (Epic Rites Press, 2013), Appalachian Frankenstein (GTK Press, 2015) Being the Fire (Tangerine Press, 2016) and Shoot the Messenger (Red Flag Poetry, 2017), Your Daughter's Country (Blue Horse Press, 2019), and Which Way to the River: Selected Poems 2016-2020 (OAC Books, 2020).
