...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)


PART OF MY LIFE IS GONE
S/HE IS NOT RETURNING
I have new emotions moving in now
and they are bringing their own furniture
If i evict them prematurely,i will never know them fully
If i do not go where they lead,i may never know them in me
If i simply allow them space,maybe they might teach me
how to live without a need to control(anything or anyone-
how to just be in a drowning dervish whirl-
dance with angels on the head of a pin
Please know i am emotion now.I do not resist/nor desist
Assimilation,integration are my allies
We seek the geography best via filtered feelings
Eye am not numb,dumb,nor dangerous
Eye am meditating,emoting,breathing my way through this
I do not know the end of this process
This may take all my lives
just to get through
the labyrinth
of losses
