L'amour de langue

Let me reflect
on the circonflex
that steeple signifying
lost sibilance

crowning carat
coveted arch
an eyebrow raised
to show what's missing

S is gone
seed scattered
to the four winds

The hospital loses
its squawking siren
and gains hope
in hรดpital

Vowels clear
song without the rush
clean like water
just a hatted hook
for shelter
