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)

WHO KNOWS MOON?
REACH UP &ORANGE ROUND REMAINS
beyond your finger tips/you "say you can see
by the dawn's early light'-moon go to sleep
as Ole Sol shares his Light
(you can never get close to him!Burn,baby,burn!
Solar Flares and Ison Romance Gravity Orbit
Every Thing Is In Relationship/Every Thing is Moving/Dynamic
Movies reveal more than photographs/even they are framed
Illusion closeness.One or two will claim moon dust on their moon boots
Michael Jackson's Moonwalking.MTV's Moonmen.Few hold them
Elements of distance.Perspective.Emotions in space
New (counted)calendar day brings in new relationships
They ,too,float in space(as we do)They ,too,always claim to be new..

Is this a new day?

...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.
