...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 appearances 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)

TO SLIP BETWEEN STONES

as water /with sea snakes on surface
Loch Ness one dragon's breath away
Death in  a smooth skin fang sac
Toxicity assured /chill contact
Our ancestors small when they rose tall serpents
Now garter and grass snakes,smaller than lizards
Milk them for venom vaccine
Cobra in basket rising like smoke
Our fear returns when we see their shape
SNAKES ON A PLANE ,in the grass,on the road
One on one-we are always alone
Snakes swim in swamps/waters their home
Rainbow Serpent waterhole/billabong
Death is the skin of a snake moved on
