anecdote # 125 - Superman night

darkened blue-flickering room
after my parents went to bed
(which tense scene?)
when a knock on the window, face pressed —

I screamed, ran, jumped on their bed, babbling;
dad got a baseball bat

at the door: a drunk wanting petrol

Dont fall for it Pearl--its a trap! Or maybe that's more of a Batman scenario.
