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)

PIX FROM PARIS
Sign Next To Degas -DO NOT TOUCH!
(i trust they can remove my fingerprints from the glass)

METRO-always three gendarmes-
one can read,one can write,the third likes intellectuals

METRO elevation=second floor apartments
Miniature lives through glass

Perfect suit of armor
Bullet hole through heart

Black jazz in small clubs-
Americans!

Pay per level -
3 faces of Eiffel!

Cachet buses/Metro
Worlds underworld.

Arabs.Muslims.Refugees
Algeria.Morocco,Paris.

Bridges across the Seine
Flatboat full of tourists.

Winter.Cold.Snow

Why does Paris rain on us?

...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.
