...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)


IT HAPPENS
EACH NIGHT,WE SIT DOWN
review the ones we know and love-
their state of health and sanity
what they may need in terms of poetry-
a visit/hug/some food/a dose of money
Most are non-materialists/many in poor health
More are diabetic or impending Alzheimer's
facing operations with no support around.
The little fires warm us most-a nod,a cheer,a hug
When we meet,my thin Buddha friend
wants a hug to hold in mind
the truth that we are all bound together
What he finds when so close-is trust

and a grounding in the truth of us
