To Nose or Not to Nose
To nose or not to nose
is the question of my day.
I am informed my email smiley face
is in need of a nose, and I sit here wondering
if I have issues around scent,
or, if, in fact, since my computer fills it in
with a cute little face,
that I am instead impressively efficient,
or maybe it is that I don’t like a nose
represented by a minus sign.
I like round noses, noses with space,
noses that can breathe and inhale fully,
not a dismal little subtraction of a stick,
floating like a hovercraft,
with the clear intention of separating the eyes
from the smile.
