...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)

i saw dead deer.i asked her if she wanted
she explained the shock of their being hit
by the truth of a truck/somehow affected the meat
so no one would touch road kill round here
Well,i knew that as not true.Several flea friends of mine
brave the tick of the deer,smell of flat skunk
even broken shelled armadillo just to survive
There is a way to cook possum meat
so the entrails do not remind you of you.
Even turkey vultures(bless their efficacy!)
can (in turn)be slowly digested
Now i am not saying this is a metaphor
but that deer that i saw was not there

when i looked a second time
