...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)

WHEN IN ANOTHER SKIN
BRUSH MARKS IN AIR
Temporary dervish weather(all swirls and spiral dances!
Currents subterranean call-O Sirens!O Harpies!
Walled worlds melt like chocolate in hot sun heart
We are weather for each other-prevailing winds
Sometimes sudden storms/soft seas/tranquil blanket skies
Light calls-transitory illuminations/hung outlaw Christmas lights
Before belief-feelings without names/the miss of swish
Click!Globe turns /transfixes upon mirror image
Is this the part where your hearts betray?
or when you send sand for beaches campaign
to end all suffering distances/magnetically pulled
towards deeper currents/tidal wave love
swamping that little boat intention
sinking in spirals and sweetness

Desire of the deep/enchanted seas..
