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)

SPORT
EYE CAN NOT ESCAPE
this tractor trailer van gridlock
lost key swinging door emotions
each self-selected saga-

substance,sculpture,scalpel,silence.
2
Golf?He is a club.I am the hole
The ball asks us not to be violent
3
Eye say"Give EVERYONE a ball!"
He say"Working Class only got sport!"
4
Rules of war are sport
for those who violate
5
Rip in the tear of fabric of Uni/verse
We are children who need us!
6
Are there other space stadiums?
Planetary waltzes?Music of Spheres?
7
Our eyes skies see beyond spectra
Dogs hear what we will not listen to

Blocked Notes(Akashic Records)
All That Is=FILE DELETED!

...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.
