When this electricity line was constructed
back in the 1970s…
…I was living near its destination, Portland,
some 300 kilometres west of Geelong.
It was built to take power to the
Alcoa Aluminium smelter built at Portland.
A few years ago the Geelong Alcoa plant was closed,
so the Portland smelter may be heading for closure also.
If so, I wonder will the power line be dismantled?
It is difficult to imagine her as being verbose.
When strangers arrive….we know about it.
When morning arrives….we know about it.
Each and every morning walkers, joggers,
her friend the dog next door,
they all know where her territory starts and ends.
She’s harmless but very verbose,
especially in the morning.
