walking on the tarmac
i spotted a dead rat,
still, quiet and dead,
and walked on
as if i noticed nothing

lying on the tarmac
the dead rat, still,
quiet and dead, spotted me
and slept on
as if he noticed nothing

an evening, sombre
a dark road, burning
a brief encounter
one was dead -
the dead rat or i?

    @arjun: in short, it's about indifference. and one wonders if it is not death.

    @Linus: some questions are vague, after all :-)

    if the dead was possibly not dead, isn't the question vague?

    Dear Oblivion,

    I don't understand this poetry. But it looks good. Can you tell me what you want to say exactly?
