i’ve finally reached the point in my life
where i am wearing a pair of too big socks
with shorts i went running in
and a t-shirt with holes.
and the road is open in the car head lights
and my green military jacket
is loose around my shoulders.
then i buy a lottery ticket
and realize that money can’t buy happiness
because here i happy
with midterms in the morning
and smelling of watered down hot cocoa.
~ i don’t regret not winning that lottery
