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)

SWALLOWED BY THE MASSES
EVERY BREATH A PRAYER
for continuance.From blind gods and dervish goddesses
we spin madly quarkwise /kinetic
if this is a dance,it has unknown steps
if art,it has no frame nor market
if book-these pages keep continuing
if stream-consciousness connecting
if certain-question marks demonstrate
if nostalgic-consider memory loss
if possession-untie,unlock,unbind
if static-electrically charge
there is no need to know-
just curiosity cat's paws
outside windows of our space stations
Keep dancing!Spinning Madly!

There is no Here but Now!

...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.
