"Salut monde"[1][2] (English: "Hello World") is a calligram by Guillaume Apollinaire. Its form evokes the form of the Eiffel Tower.

The full text of the poem reads "Salut monde dont je suis la langue éloquente que sa bouche Ô Paris tire et tirera toujours aux allemands". It translates as "Hello world, of which I am the eloquent tongue which your mouth, O Paris, will forever stick out at the Germans."

The poem is published in Calligrammes [3].
