...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)

YOU GET THIS
YOU GET THIS! (DON'T PHONE YET!)
You get EVERYTHING that has ever happened(Akashic Records)
You get EVERYTHING i have ever felt
Take this-a wild man let his lover go
with a younger man,who(perhaps inadvertently)killed her
while they were making love.This is as true as her loss
which grieved the first lover for drunken years.
He had already lost his male poet friend to suicide
Was this new homicide a suicide via the hands of another?
The rub is that the killer pleaded not guilty
The jury found him guilty.His sentencing requires anyone
with positive and dispensatory  arguments
to present them in his defense
(This purely for sentencing purposes
So the first lover is called to speak on behalf of his love's killer

This happens today.
