...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)

SLIPPING INTO WATERS
MY SISTER KNOWS!
She takes me to my favorite waterfall
where i let descending waters
splash all blockages out of me
Sitting on that rock at Hamilton Pool is too small
Krauss Springs too crowded.When sorrows sit
and peck @my entrails,i used to slip into Sandringham Beach
until the waters were neck high.Rolling moon tides
slipped my sorrows into deep.Water heals.It was HOLY before Churches!
We drink liquidity ,flush out toxins,wash our wounds
and trust in water's purity.Some Buddhists chant near water
other indigenous ask for water to bless us.
We cam from water.Did not evolve much.That is why we go back
to beach and swamp,to slap all wars out of us/remind us of origins.

Finned  and gilled  once.Now we catch us-and (hopefully)-RELEASE!
