No Problem.

He laughs.
Laughs at the end of the hallway.

The hallway he had run down countless times.

A shadow followed and ran into him; once before.
A flame followed and struck him; once before.
A spray of water followed and poured over him; once before.
No problem at all.

He could open the door, he could walk in; then they never followed.

His forearm suffered a laceration; once before.
His skin suffered burns; once before.
His leg suffered a fracture; once before.
No problem at all.

He could open the door, he could walk in; then they never hurt.

No problem for now; whatever follows him.
No problem for now; whatever injures him.

He laughs.
Laughs leaning on the door.

The door he had opened countless times.

He laughs, throwing away the broken doorknob on the floor.
