U.S. BLUES

 

Buffalo is

a strange town

but it ain’t

really too bad

 

I’m only here

For a show

And I’m hoping

it’ll be as

painless as possible

 

but sitting

in a Holiday Inn

drinking a beer

I can’t really

get too concerned

 

I still have

5 more beers

left in the cooler

 

I also have

a gram of hash—

or actually

just under a gram

 

the TV is tuned

to a PBS station

it’s a special

on Buddhism

 

I suck down

my beer

and watch

dancing Buddhists

perform a ceremony

 

My purpose is

to see a show

the following day

but I wanna 

feel good tonight

 

and with that

in mind

I fill a bowl

and fire it up

 

I finish off

my beer and

pop open another

 

I smoke the bowl

and feel a buzz

coming on

 

Buddhism seems

more interesting now

but I doubt 

that I could 

ever convert
