Last Laugh

He was killed instantly, they said, walking home he was hit
his body scattered on the highway, near the river
bits here and pieces there
ribcage crushed, pelvis smashed
distorted, still in shock
He hadn't seen the speeding truck.
they found his smile nose still attached
lying bloody in the ditch with missing eyes
they didn't find his laugh, he was laughing
