Fire Trail

                  for Bronwyn Rodden

A vertical beach this track
this spitting falls of quartz
the sparks leap tree to tree
the boys & girls move closer
in their hell-proof turnout
CFA trucks shudder up
big revolutions per minute
the timing must be perfect
oily tyres brandishing fire
these soldiers a new clearing
O fire track my fire trail god
get us over please get us back
please soothe our burning thoughts
