I see a paved road in front of me.
There is a nice sedan on it.
We don't know what is under the road, what has been there, what is happening now.
There is a former layer and the life of the days under the asphalt.
The past is layered under the asphalt over and over like a stratum.
The time there has clear vertical direction towards the surface of the earth.
The present confronts to the exhausted tire of cars parked on a road.
When I die, I want to be buried under the ground.
I want to lie under asphalt as one layer of the past, and then I support the huge city of skyscraper above me. Could you park a nice sedan on me then?
