...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)

YOU(AT YOUR SECOND WEDDING),DANCING
Alight with  a knife grin /split skin joy beaming
Having found safe harboring/sanctuary
or RE-found/this time with wise accomplice
voluntary /optional heart burglary
THAT is the fire that burns all words to crisp!

YOU,WALKING DOWN CONGRESS FOR PEACE
Our steps aligned but not/again,that possum smile
as if peace were already evident

YOU,DISPENSING ADVICE TO CHICON ST.POETS
Based upon over two decades of dedicated practice
designed for inclusion/adventuring/risk-taking

YOU,ADDING TINY PEARL POEMS TO "LITERA"
Over and through the weaved tapestry of poets
Anti-clique,anti-cliche,pro-open heart surgery

BETWEEN THE SOUNDS ,where silence sits
and waits for us to catch up to meaning-
there is a circle and a fire of conversation eternal
stoked by meaning,pretense,illusion ,metaphor,story,image


This is not where you are.Ask Helga.
