...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)

SIGNIFICANCE
SHIFTING SHAPES(DRAPES
put my flying carpet snake suit on
Rose up!There is no other now but yes!
Small bird/large jet engine/asking what we want
when powerlessness is promised (political)Paradise
Accidental Archduke/Europe conflagrates
Deliberate Tokyo /Dresden firebombing
Sarin/ricin/depleted uranium/smallpox/chlorine
(every thing can be a weapon!.Self defenses=
laughter,goodwill,honesty,integrity.4 directions/agreements/seasons
Geometry of relationships .Corner spot.Window seat.Aisle walk
You must leave your past.To have a future,create new moments
Others can fire walk/channel talk/seek entities to open up
You carry your skin and all within with you
All is aligned and functioning semi-autonomously
If you ever tried to control,ants /flies might remind you who was here first
Second-hand.Fresh and original settles for recycled emotions


Now tell me you have heard all this before..
