Question on Epigrasms: In which poem does Wallace Stevens quote a European musician-composer?

in which poem did Kenneth Koch (at least in one version) quote his own first wife against himself?

dedications are often as beautiful as epigrams: In which prose poem does WB use a dedication that, combined with the title of the book, is a poem by itself?

in which painting by Poussin is there a complete if ambiguouis Latin tag?

what is Goya's most famous epigram concerning sleep if not bats in his belfry?

What was the single line like an epigram by St.John Perse
that was included in a sentimental book of photographs that became a best-seller?

What member of the NYSchool appears as Erica Kauffman's epigram to her blog?

What line of Frank O'Hara appears on a NY railing?

What is an epigram in Verlaine that "breaks one's heart?"

What is an "epigrasm"? Sounds promising.

Great questions and comments. Thanks.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
