Stella, think not that I by verse seek fame, Who seek, who hope, who love, who live but thee; Thine eyes my pride, thy lips mine history: If thou praise not, all other praise is shame.
So when thou saw'st in nature's cabinet Stella thou straight'st look'st babies in her eyes.
Dada is irony. (Katherine Dreier) Dada is 'nothing'. (Marcel Duchamp) Dada is a 'state of mind'. (Man Ray) Dada is having a good time. (Stella)
Stella, I never knew you but here I am, in your room, a week after your death. ... I thought of you, Stella, and wondered if you watched your moments, or if they all snuck by. I whispered your name into the day, carried on for you in reverence, and I felt you rest and continue the smile.vanna bonta
