MACK POINT TANK FARM: "Opponents are even writing poems about it."

1. 

MACK POINT TANK FARM 
Fourteen-Story-Tall Propane Storage Tank Proposed For Searsport’s Mack Point
Twenty-two, seven zero zero, zero zero zero gallons! 
Twenty-four-seven noise: tankers, rail, compressors. 
Explosive. 
Ugly.

Island colors fade--
fuel storage terminal’s
white, white tanks do not.



--Bob Brooks

3.
PROPANE
C3H8, or CH3CH2CH3
A gas heavier than natural gas
But lighter than gasoline
Forms in pools on the ground

Odorless anesthetic
Will put you to sleep
Explosive at any concentration
Can cook you a nice hamburger
22 million gallons at your doorstep
Have a Nice Day
 - Jim Grossman
