The poem tells you what it means
if for instance you drove all the way to buy
a lottery ticket on the California border
because hey you never know about these things,
but there’s a line because nobody’s won yet,
and now the payout is over a billion dollars—
imagine what you could buy with that.
You have to remember you’re at the age
when you’ve started to feel as though
you might’ve missed out on something.
Whatever it is, a billion dollars should cover it
