Identity

Rating: 3.4
SOMEWHERE--in desolate wind-swept space--
In Twilight-land--in No-man's land--
Two hurrying Shapes met face to face,
And bade each other stand.

"And who are you?" cried one a-gape,
Shuddering in the gloaming light.
"I know not," said the second Shape,
"I only died last night!"

i believe that identity means talking about yourself and describing more features about what you look like

'Gloaming' - that's a word you don't meet with every day.
