I played the lotto for years when it came to state
Spent my millions at least a million times in mind
And on paper. We talked about what we would
Do with our new wealth once our numbers came
In. I played one lotto built on numbers from our
Lives, birthdays, ages, important dates.
One night I had a dream and six perfect numbers
In different shades of beauty appeared one at a time
I woke up, remembered each number, each shade,
Every part of the dream right down to the smokey
Hue the numbers were all coming from. I was a
Winner, this was it, I just had to play those numbers,
I did for four or five years until I had a daydream.
I was sitting on my front porch looking out at the world
When everything became hazy and smoke filled
Finally letters began to appear one at a time in
Different bright neon colors. S..U…C..K..E…R..
Then nothing else.
