...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)


DESERT DROUGHT ETERNAL CYCLES

Hydrate in 100 degree heat.It is not even dog daze of August!
Today i drank a waterhole,washed in gray water ,wasted more black
knew Egyptian sweat reincarnated in my body sac.
Lake Travis evaporates .36% means restrictions/zeroscape
Gardens shrivel .Stones and cactus.Even weeds prove anorexic
Flowers from Mexico(like bushfires over borders).Summer scorcher soon.
Solar flares and shimmer.Dry humor crops.Corn shrivels.Lots lost.
Declaring drought disaster zone merely makes for aid
Rice farmers no longer allocated water rights.Do not mention water sports or craft.
Lake businesses move away.Rain as selective as pain.Stays .Plain.Happened before us.Again.
Heat cycles rotate .Roast like we are pink meat on heated BBQ table
Serve us up to Old Sol gods.Pray for rain like Baptists.Baptism may have to be deferred
until it rains again.Enough to wash away.The stain.Down drains.Bone dry.Drought cries.Cycle.Recycle.Days.
