when people
see me on the street
and I'm walking alone
they probably think
I'm an angry or unhappy
or maybe mean-spirited person
and it's because
most of the time
smiling really does nothing for me
and contorting my face in that way
is only necessary
in social settings
something about
showing your teeth
and maybe squinting your eyes a little
indicates you are a nice person
and worthy of friendship
or other benevolent interactions
