Winning the Lottery

Saturday, March 28th, 2015

Winning the Power Ball
could very well bring
a bigger prize than

being born a healthy, white male
in the United States (at the apex
of its strength and influence)

with access to a college education
(at a time when it didn’t bankrupt)
and being gifted with an aptitude

for skills that are in high demand
around the world.
The world is my oyster free of charge

whereas I need to buy tickets
if I’m going to win
the Power Ball.

I’m embarrassed to write
anything containing the word
depression.
