...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 and 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)

bird feathers
SO HAN
I would like to be a bird
Bird I am-Bird of Word
I would like to be a Fish!
Fish I am-fast and free
I would like to be a Dream
Dream I am-AWAKEN ME!

POETICS
TWO ROADS DIVERGE IN FRONT OF ME
Only one has an S.U.V!

NOTHING IS MORE IMPORTANT
than a full refrigerator and a fat paycheck!

THOSE PLUMS YOU LEFT-
I ate them yesterday-
They gave me diahorrea!

THE FOG ARRIVES IN AUSTIN
not on little cats' paws
More cancelled aircraft arrivals!

THE BEST MINDS OF MY GENERATION?
I still wait to see them!

A SUPERMARKET IN CALIFORNIA
still has a grape boycott!

WE ORDERED DEMOCRACY
In this restaurant
They are unfamiliar with
the price you pay.
