I feel we created emojis
Because there was no concrete way of ensuring
A smile reached its intended target.
That a personal look
Would not be absorbed by the general populace.
That something precious
Would get tarnished by intruding eyes.
I’m smiling at you.
Far easier to attach a round face to a number,
Send it around the world,
Up into space,
Through science and technology and thousands of tiny metal bits,
Just to avoid any confusion
As to the subject of my grin.
Don’t you think? 😉
