The epiphany of the alphabet

Your world has suddenly shattered
into a sea of letters

“O” is your favourite
you scour each word
to see if it houses them
spinning through it like wheels

and “W” makes you laugh
which doesn’t surprise me
because why isn’t an “M”
called a “double-en”

today you took ages
to get into your carseat and I felt the heat of irritation
because we were late again
but then I heard you
studying the hazard label
and I pressed my cheek against yours
as you quietly counted the “I’s.”
