Kinglake West, one Saturday afternoon.

The roar of the fire was a part of them now
as it engulfed their trapped vehicle.
The noise was gut-wrenching;
a warped sickening symphony of howling jet engines,
screaming children and
fizzing Catherine wheels.

A rear tyre exploded and
as the car slumped to the ground
the rear window shattered
with a dull thud.

Opportunistic smoke;
acrid, black, ember laden smoke
poured in through the large hole and
the heat of a blast furnace seared through them.
He shook his head softly to himself ‘so this is it then?’

He felt a jolt of icy calmness shoot through the veins of
his already singed body.
The unrelenting banshee maelstrom
shrieked and screamed
and hammered madly at the melting vehicle.

Despite the vice-like grasp of terror

that pinned him where he sat,
he reached his hand out
through the smoke
towards his softly coughing wife.

Kinglake West, one Saturday afternoon.
