funny guy

he always said that it was only funny if it hurt,
and if you aren’t hurting,
no one’s laughing.
he always said that nothing’s true in memories;
that cigarettes and rosebuds leave the same
color on the tongue.
he always said that you couldn’t fix yourself,
and it was all a lesson in laughter,
but what did he know?
he was just a funny guy
