Summary:
The glittering stretch of snake-like highway beckons escape. To a rhythmic blues backbeat, it leads from northern New South Wales to inner-city Brisbane, continually circling back.

Abstract:

The glittering stretch of snake-like highway beckons escape. To a rhythmic blues backbeat, it leads from northern New South Wales to inner-city Brisbane, continually circling back. Woven through the road narrative are poems whose humour, cant and unshakable politics express the poet's experience as a Nyoongah living in a white world.
