Even pre-dating Voiceprint, when I was running "Otter Songs" and Tom's poetry tapes and guest appearences with Daevid Allen, Gilli Smyth, Mother Gong are well known and highly regarded. It just felt right to include a daily poem from Thom on our Gonzo blog and when I approached him to do so, he replied with in seconds!!!
Thom is a great talent and just wants to spread poetry, light and positive energy across the globe. If we at Gonzo can help him do that - why not? why not indeed!!"
...and wonder follows. Neutral as milk in plastic
we pinball our days between pleasure and pain
amazed by changes overnight express/midnight express
personal and political expression/corporation corpses
expressed as legal entities.Weave between monoliths
like Ai Wei-Wei, with art accomplices,word warriors
wondrous imagineers,sweet musicians. Co-operative harmonics
assuaging our world's wounds. Hope is only action taken
Trust is fact when truth is spoken. Values become human
when we become human. Celebrate not just who we might become
more who we are (one and together) - here and now. Hear and Know!
We are more together than apart. Life is our Art!
