...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)

O CALYPSO
SILKIES /SIRENS WILL NOT SAVE YOU NOW!
Stories from her lips are storms of lightning
Hurricane tip canoes/distraction over files
beyond the parking lot with no receipts
Cash economy.Black economy.Her hair the color of air..

ATTRACTION TO THE GOLDEN& A SILVER FOG CHILLED
wasted waves/aluminum Spring/Wild Flowers of Broken rainbows
The Cave of Isolation calls/wild birds enter&return

TIME'S HEART GROWS SLOW(with two,goes faster
Stars are more than eyes/watching over Heavens.
Dewdrop jewelry  scattered on morning green lawns
Ships are gigantic now/stashed containers/computers lifted
Cranes dip and load.Then move beyond.

BITPOEMS ALTERNATIVE CURRENCIES
One line is one unit.Then a Couplet.Triolet.Quatrain.Quintain/Cinquain.Sestet.Septet.Octave.Nonet.Decastich/Sonnetina/Tritina/Duo Decet
Get change in haikus!

ANTS NEVER QUESTION(they follow-into the flames..

STAR BURST CHEST&ALL BUTTERFLY BALL
Cabbage Moths cried within dowdy gray
Bright flowers bloomed little natural nuclear suns
Above and beyond my tree planted eyes
watching grackles storm trooper boots planted black
Worms subterranean literary critics bending obfuscations..

ELDER LOVE
A line of candled penitents(compassion over passion
Still service/kindness/to partners/children and grand-

Who heals the healer?Who hears the priest?
