The following poem is entitled "Ricochet" and is by Bosnian poet Fahrudin Zilkic. It comes from the collection "Scar on the Stone, Conteporary Poetry from Bosnia".


It's when you define the world's sides,
when you run across a section of road
between two bushes.

It's when you hear the shot,
and while you're lying flat on your
face you're splattered with gravel.

it's when a year later
you recognise the scar on the stone
where your life went on again.
