Poem #8: Dissecting Emojis

What’s trending?
A tidal wave of emotions.
Expressed with a quick push of a button.
Repeat. Delete. Tell a story.

I contemplate the ones I most frequently use…
Champagne flutes, red wine, beer mugs,
Cake, coffee, salsa dancing.
Surfers and palm beaches and my home in L.A.
What do they say about me?
I scroll through the screens. Which ones do I never use?

I like laughter, I like happiness, I like fun. And my usage says that.
Doesn’t it?
