    I'm probably not using the correct terms, so please excuse...

    I need to have a ruby app that loops and keeps a serial port open,
    essentially listening every second or so. then I need to send messages
    to that serial port app so that it can send outgoing messages, as in a
    queue fashion, from other ruby apps.

    Is there a gem that can handle cross ruby application message queues?

    Drb is one option (not a gem, but std lib). Much more general than
    message queues, but it does that too. It will only work between ruby
    processes, though.
