A Bouncing Kind Of Love

Ever notice how some people
bounce in and out of your life
like a red rubber ball?

Just about the time
your life settles down,
they'll careen back in
with no warning.

I know someone like that
and I never know
which walls he'll glance off of.

I do know
before bouncing out again
he'll almost certainly
leave more dents in my siding,
chips in my protective veneer,
and if I'm lucky,
only a few more
... lovely impressions on my heart

but I'm developing
a very bad allergy
to red latex...
