Hour Eight: Emoji
Hearts of all hues
And eggplants too
Beady eyes watch me frown
One pair even stare from a face turned upside down.
I squint, I mumble,
In a sea of fruit I fumble
What’s on fire? What does this mean?
Tiny figures swim endlessly across my screen.
They’ve come to remind me
That change is never-ending
That the youth bring transformation
And we must embrace their innovation.
