For breakfast I eat up my vowels, my a e i o u, to which I add from consonants a fricative or two;
After that I move my bowels then write as poets do, and frequently am quite surprised to feel a trill come through.

A little bit of Turkish: Alet (Tool, Instrument, slang term for Penis) Iş (Work) El (Hand)

Alet işler, el öğünür.
The tool does the work, the man* grabs the pride.

*lit. hand

The above image of the bateleur is from the Tarot de Marseille style Noblet Tarot. An excellently crafted restoration of the Noblet Tarot deck is available from the master card-maker Jean-Claude Flornoy.
