|I have always loved the Beatles especialy John and his songs but have fairly recently been bitten by the bug of obssession after watching the Beatles Anthology.
Now your book has come along on his birthday and I enjoyed your talk at B&N's tonight so I had to write a spontaneous poem for John's birthday and Columbus/ Indigenous Peoples day a strange but maybe apt pairing for me somehow.
Anyway just wanted to thank you for your book and will definitely give you two more cents on it as I read it voraciously in the coming days.
you see my blog at http://thirdeyegallery.tripod.com/themuse or read on!
"For what Ever let's You evoLive your Life"
Stoned Mantel Peace
I read the News Today oh boy, about a lucky man who'd made the grade
and though the new's was rather sad I just had to laugh
having read the book
I'd love to write you a poemmmmmm!

John Lennon's 65th Birthday
October 10th 2005
Indigenous People's Day (Columbus Day)
continue to expand
exponential fractal edges
of smooth acerbic stones
the public face
And the tango ensues
Bloody white man
Chalk feathered red man
"Orgy of denial"
America schooling dogma doctrine
for fear of Imperial supremecist loss
thinking it won't be found under the moneythugrug
broken under foot and grave
But the Truth Rises!
and the Earth
and All her Children
Her first Children
not just dark silly myths despised
into our paranoid unintegrated fear
of our lost humanity
as our brothers keepers
Please Please Please
Stem the tide
need empathy pain
and otherness sameness joy
and are we
am I redeemable
The stereo type
of the noble savage
naive pure genius
like our precious motherless children earth
Each must pay...
learn and unlearn
the true savage
in the war path
of the white mans
nuclear breeder reaction
hatred monotheist unGODllyfolly
and pray for a swift extinction
or eventual redemption
want to make the journey
of being as new?
I (We) want John (and what he represents) to live more desperately now that he (IT) is not living now again once and future
paradise losin' you(we)
I (We) want Indeginous and non indigenous to be a stranger racist memory mourned like a half unremembered plague of bygone days
Sons of Italy fed to the dogs tied at the mast of slavery and ineptitude sailing on a flat earth to worship gold above living brothers flesh and heart minds!
Would that all could make equally heroic efforts to love and understand and make all anscestory proud
Standing up erect not knucle dragging fossil clones
7 Up yours generations
Evil Appocalypse Cronyism agendas in the name of
Peace and Freedom!
The scarab Silver Beatles!!!
Who walked our mad culture excrement balls
backward up Foolshill
as symbolic Imagine song Strawberry Feild
Tommorow Never Knows... time passage refrain
Harmony's harmonies and rhythm of
reflecting on day in the life and after life life
LOVE evol love, EVOL love evol
Nothing you can do??? Really?Maybe
then John Lennon and our Indigenous brothers and sisters could honestly pat my (Your)back
"Now! your on the path to finding your truth our truth beyond truth."
