"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!!"

WHEN SHE ASKED
if long love becomes resentment
He absorbed her pain
compared it to his own
derailed his emotions
When she said "Truthiness is moir!"
Hard as a punch.I give my friends(up)
I knew we were friends.
Words under words.Feelings oceans.
Sharks still bite surfers out of curiosity
Is this why we stick to edges
Walk around the obvious?
