Coup de Ric-o-chet by Rick Richardson

Sometimes I say
the kind of words

that should never
touch my breath

Unkind words
better left unsaid

• I bullet them
• for maximum effect
• when they find the mark

I always aim
for the heart

but they end up
bouncing around
inside my head

and exiting
my size 9.5
steel-toed boot

instead.
