betwixt and between

between no longer and not yet
I’m stuck
the smoke is gone
leaving the ashes to cool down
but there’s nothing else
no plants, no seeds
just an empty liminal space
smelling of question marks
trying to find a handle
I roll around and spin
till a sudden thought strikes me:
what’s wrong with betwixt and between?
