short story converted to comic

confusion perfume page 42 (bukowski's undertow)

so when i ran short on embarrassing personal life stories to tell in confusion perfume, i played around with turning my fiction/verse into comics.
here is one of my more successful stories. it was published in danse macabre as well as is included in my probably never to see the light of day short story collection tangled together. before either of those incarnations, it was made into a comic.
this is that comic.

just kidding

people can’t tell the difference
(or maybe they don’t want to)
between my
laughing
& my crying
my being funny
& my being
tragic
but can i blame them?
when i so often
cover my pain
with jokes?

i guess
for everyone
it’s easier to
laugh
than to
cry.
