[Hammond Guthrie says he got his start in the underground community when he collaborated with a number of luminaries, including, he says, Del Close, director for 2nd City and The Committee; "Hube the Cube? Leslie; Philo T. Farnsworth III, son of the inventor of television; Liam O'Gallagher; author of The Blue Planet Notebooks; William Seward Burroughs; John "Hoppy? Hopkins of the Arts Lab in London, and Robert Jasper Grootveld, mentor for the Amsterdam Provos.

In the Fall of 2002 SAF Publications in London [ http://www.safpublishing.com ] will release Guthrie's first book of memoirs AsEverWas - Memoirs of a Beat Survivor.]

ABSENCE OF EVIDENCE
(IS NOT)
EVIDENCE OF ABSENCE

An important action of being a successful politician
is to find new acronymics for nefarious institutions
which under the old acronyms have become down
right frightening to the general public.
 

This is why in the US politicians want to change MAD
[Mutually Assured Destruction]  to UAD
[Unilaterally Assured Disintegration].
 

Unrefined sources report that this Congressional
acronymic du jour was chosen not only because it
is less intimidating than MAD - but also because
UAD is so difficult to pronounce

AND THE BEAST GOES ON

Rattletrap poesying

past chops and digs

mushrooms out the floor

mentor's mantle

 

AfterBeat sets

electronically bent

in the

Here and Know

 

Watchacallit now

screaming yestervanas

cream all over the place

 

Time travels last

soaking up the juice

left in heaven

And the Beast goes on
