French Frogs

Tour de force. Forceful turn.

Humans, too, imitated the frogs — koa koa! — and begin to ask questions, Quoi? Quoi? We turned to each other and hands groped, demanded, Que sexe est? or Qu’est-ce que c’est? Years and years, the room croaked without tails or answers. Even now everyone is still screaming up into the black air — What! Now and then, a game of echo. Now and then, a new sound.

Puts me in mind of another homophonic treatment: aid loan = alone

Unique, eh!
