Poetry by Jim Nasium

I hope you enjoy this new poem I call


Somewhere In Peru

I waited near the station
for the daily bus to arrive
just sipping warm beers
in some 2 bit dive
small talk was all I had
to offer any how
it was time to get away
from this town right now

the man who ran the cafe
invited me into the back room
he showed me a large bag of powder
then the ideas started to bloom
he asked me if we wanted to try
the product he had for sale
I told him no but I lied
because I didn't want to end up in jail

he said come on go ahead
take a little just to try
so I did a pretty big line
felt my self getting high
I did another and another after that
then heard the bus drive away
I ended up staying in that little back room
for a night and another whole day

I cooked some up and smoked it
snorted some off of an old box
I felt safe for the moment
the back door had a security lock
the time goes by so quickly
when lost in a snow storm
you start to suspect every one
your worst fears are finally born

hungry, dirty and feeling bad
three days have wasted away
I missed the bus and lost my bag
but that's all in a day
when you live on the dark side
doing things you shouldn't do
way down in some small town
some where in Peru
