the slot allows you to see the next roll for free

sometimes that next roll is a winner

but you gotta sit there like a crackhead
so you fit in
checking game after game after game

forget the slot closest to the register
the employees always get all the winners

one time using this method
I turned two bucks
into eighty

not bad for suffering the shame
of having to sit there as a bum
for 20 minutes
till I got lucky and found a winning game

but most of the time
you don’t find any winners
and you feel like a loser
because you are
