...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)

3 ROADS LOOKING 4
WHY ARE YOU NOT HEAR?
I can sit on a beach(until light leaves
Waves(of people)come and go(as we will)
Whether rhyme,reason,rhythm(does not matter)
We will come and we will leave again
in another skin.

RED LINE
Travis drew with a sword a line
REMEMBER THE ALAMO?(lost)
Armistice Koreas-South 2 North
Lost Vietnam(regained via trade)
Syrian Red Line broken/count millions
Refugees like Borders(cost)(lost)
Time changes lines.Red 2 Blue/Black.Bruises

THROWING LINES FROM THE DEEP INSIDE YOU
Fishing for the blue fish and the silver shark.

All eye caught-released!
