The Universe

written by: Mercedes Gomez

 

A young man in a grey hoodie
Sits in the center of the sidewalk in front of the Apple Store at 1981 Broadway
Scrolling on his phone.
I observe him and try to determine his character.
Is he wealthy and thinks that he owns every block in Manhattan?
Or is it that he gets the best reception in the middle of the street
In front of the Apple Store?

I am trying to tell you that sometimes our universe is what we all make of it.
