Chicken Little

New York City — Times Square 1998

The dwarf walks Times Square with a sandwich board letting everyone know that the end is near.

A policeman carrying a cup of coffee glances, then pays him no mind, the coffee is more important to him.

The dwarf bends down to tie his shoe, and for a moment he cannot see that the sky is falling.

The clouds come crashing down around him and the whore stands by oblivious as she smooths her skirt and fixes her stockings.

The dwarf walks up and down Broadway again, never realizing he had missed the whole thing.
