stratospheric fifth dimension poetry

I interviewed poet Michael Horovitz last week for the Young Poets Network project and in the final section he managed in a few minutes to move from a description of the end of Wholly Communion, the poetry happening he helped to organise at the Royal Albert Hall in 1965, to an attack on advertising and a blessing to the poets of the future, the Great Grandchildren of Albion, urging them to make stratospheric fifth dimension poetry together via digital means, "with music, with computer, with space travel, without knives, and without political or Arts Council approval". More to follow but here's Ginsberg and Horovitz together again.
