Blinking Facemasks

Excuse me,
But I have to ask,
Are you smiling
Beneath your mask?

It’s hard to tell
Just what you’re thinking,
So how about we
Smile by blinking?

A little blink,
Plus a raised eyebrow
Means “hello mate
How are you now?”

A longer blink
Or maybe two,
Could mean “I have
Missed seeing you”.

Three short blinks,
And a little bow,
Gives a courteous smile
That’s quite highbrow.

But don’t mix up
A happy blink
With a furtive
Cheeky wink.

For winking
At a complete stranger
Could generate
Some blinking danger.
