Existential Sign, Cody Deitz

We exist, we promise.

Existential Sign
by Cody Deitz

In the Westfield shopping mall, behind the plastic tree

Is a sign that says, “You Are Here,” but I think I disagree.

Between the fountain and the food court, on a bright plastic board

Printed on thick paper I doubt I could afford
Is a large but lonely bright red arrow.

I search and search the large print board
But can’t find any more.

Either that or I am blind.
I guess it’s an existential sign.
