POETRY POSTCARDS
------------------------------------


LOTTO LIFE

It unites us.

his dream
to have choices.

Whether to work or laze.

Decide our futures
instead of waiting
for opportunity.

The universal
language of need
- not greed.

We’ve lost control!

Caught up in the flow
of magazine lifestyle.

The one we desire
and reality.

To walk through town
not asking the price...

Carrying the labels
which define our success.

Purchases we don’t need.

It’s universal
the conviction that money
will right all our wrongs
and make the world spin
in our direction.

When we buy a ticket
we’ve planted the seed.

The seed of our fantasies.

Absolutely - we're all rugged up! It's summer for us now - 41 degrees C. yesterday, so you can imagine how much we pine for our winter... it was about 15 degrees C when this photo was taken.

Call that a winter?
That's not a winter, THIS is a winter!
