Oh Dada, oh Tristan Tzara !


Born as Samy Rosenstock,
a Jewish Romanian in Moldova,
man of no nation but his imagination,
leaving Bucharest, leaving Zurich,
leaving the stage at Cabaret Voltaire
singing, to return on stilts,
as if self were a trifling
impediment to the present.
“Thought is made in the mouth,”
you said, “Morality is the infusion
of chocolate into the veins of all men.”

    If this be true, then my Tristan has certainly eaten enough chocolate this Easter to have it running in his veins. Whether this has led him to morality I’m not sure – gluttony more like – but he would like to be an acrobat and maybe a composer too one day. Not a bad act to follow.
