Betwixt and Between

 

 

Somewhere between the west and south

 

Somewhere in between time zones

Between getting somewhere and being nowhere

Between total strangers, travel acquaintances and friends

Between grids, roadhouses, servos, lookouts and one street towns

Kilometres pass, questionable meals are eaten, Phil Collins CDs and endless ice creams and postcards are purchased, road trains are overtaken, mate waves are reciprocated

But betwixt and between time and space passing

Nothing much happens

Other than the road bending, the sun setting and the wind picking up again

 

-Elspeth, in Ceduna, after the Nullarbor.
