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.
