Truck Stop

Truck Stop - Patrushka

A piece for my “Once We Were Here…” series, a beautifully forgotten truck stop, overgrown by the side of the road, in the middle of nowhere.

‘Til almost mysteriously
Well, it was the lights of a truck stop that rolled into sight
Joe turned to me, said ‘I’m sorry son, but I’m afraid this is just as far as you go, you see
You see, I kinda gotta be making a turn just up the road a piece’
I’ll be damned if he didn’t toss me a dime as he threw her in low and said
‘Go on in there son, and get yourself a hot cup of coffee on Big Joe’
I mean to tell you, when Joe and his rig pulled off into the night
Man, in nothing flat they was clean outta sight –  
Tom Waits, Big Joe And Phantom 309
