How do I scan "Musis amicus tristitiam et metus"? It's an Alcaic hendecasyllabus, so there's one syllable too many. According to the rules of elision the "am" of tristitiam should be silent, but then there's an ugly hiatus between tristiti' and et.

Do the ellision, don't mind the new hiatus.
--/v-/--/vv-/v-
Musís / amí / cus trís / titi(am) ét / metús.
