Strayed above the highway aisle
(Jagged vacance, thick with ice)

from Bon Iver – Holocene Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Powerful imagery of what it’s like to feel alone with only the bitter winter surrounding you. In the cold air is the memory of the love that has left you there. In the winter’s cold air through your nose allows you to smell how bitter dry love can be.
