My First Allen

by R.L. Wisdom

An apparition with quiet steps
     throws water on the fire
          and runs from the explosion.

          In the garage
     sitting snugly
on the chair.

          A stirring arises
          out the corner of my eye
          but to no avail.

Innocuous or not
     the ninja reveals its position
          and stomps off.

          An abbreviated ending
     to a comfortable evening.
Things are complicated.
