Perfect circle, Haiku
Perfect circle round
In the center of the sky
by Jack Kerouac (1922-1969), from Book of Haikus (Penguin, 2003). Thanks, Francisco.
PS. If Kerouac were a mathematician he'd have noticed that "perfect" is implied by the definition of "circle" and is unnecessary. But Kerouac was a poet and he saw a different necessity.
