Poem: Mr. Amiable

By: JD DeHart


If were small, yellow,
and round, I would be better
at communicating
by Emoji.

If were more expressive,
perhaps, people might like
me more, but they would
also know more of my

Probably not a helpful
ingredient, and
if I were smiling all the
time, more comfortable with
extreme emotions, maybe
the wear out wouldn’t come
when it does.

Maybe I wouldn’t value
the silent retreat quite
as much.
