...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.

THOM THE WORLD POET: The Daily Poem


Rob Ayling writes: 

"Thom the World poet, is an old mate of mine from way back in my history. 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!!" (The wondrous poetpic is by Jack McCabe, who I hope forgives me for scribbling all over it with Photoshop)


SEA SHELL IN

outside all structures
nightbirds sing all mornings in
to broken daylight

black morning coffee
my moods need milk addition
to sweeten my day

my elder tree ghost
bare bone skeleton thin stick
all her leaves have left

another birthday party!
another candle burns down
to waxed memories

each flower bending
towards the Light Source outside
and the Light within.

flatlands have a song
wind carries it through deserts
caught within cities

when i am with you
spring flowers bloom around you
alone,weeds,shadows..

hidden moon tonight-
planets,stars,constellations-
Mother is missing!

strewn along beaches-
miniature starlit shells
reflecting Heavens

shadows lengthening-
darkness has her season too
Winter waits for you

wind herding old leaves
gathered in retirement
awaiting endings

train rattles all night
ghost carriages flashing past
carrying strangers
