Dear Elisa, Dear Elisa,”

”Then cut it;”
”With a knife;”
”The knife is blunt;”
”Then sharpen it…”
”With what shall I sharpen?”
”With a stone…”
”The stone is too dry…”
”Then wet it…”
”With some water…”
”How shall I fetch it, dear Elisa?
Dear Elisa, but how?”
”With a bucket dear Henry, dear Henry with a bucket;”
”But there is a hole in my bucket…”
The poem is linear and circular.Every question
of Henry has a straight answer that Elisa gives
and its endless refrain makes the poem circular.
