on the road to Ballarat
the argument thick between us
we take a wrong corner
five bald hills bright white turbines
stand still like the crucifix waiting
for the infidel then one by one
east to west they turn happy to earn
their keep stop the speculation
over the fence four lambs not yet shorn
across the field of fluoro canola
a pillar of smoke leans over
