the lottery reached
$184 million today
no one chose
the true six numbers
not even the computer I asked
to make those decisions for me

still, I’ll buy a ticket
again next time
the one that promises
houses in Taos and Spain
wine from France
a beach near Hilo
fast yellow cars
and watches I’ll never
consult because
my personal assistant
will always know the time
