to fancy a linguaphile [backdated oct 5th]

she loved the way she talked
vowels so much more succulent
than on any other tongue
the brightness of consonants
the way sibilance danced
a fricative means of dazzling
a snake charmer inversed
when rolling the polysyllabic
all eyes caught on her lips
absorbing the non-rhotic
disappearing into her lexicon
