...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)

A BUNDLE OF BIRDS
WHO HAS NO FACE/BOOK..
who have no email (maybe Birdsong@Twitter.com)
who carry only wings (no Smartphone
who have no Internet connection(only a Cloud..a Sky..the Wind
who are acoustic/never electric(unless a storm/shaking tail feathers
who nest in secret trees,breeding birdlets
who do not watch television-so miss their own migrations
who form community radio programs of random songlets
who are Dickinson's"hope with feathers"
who string mornings together like dewdrops/raindrops
who flit fast past before words can cage their Maya,Angelou!
who William Blake.who Wordsworth.who Shelley's"Wild West Wind"
who slow Keats afternoon summers.who busy bobbing ,bundling nest sticks
who exist despite us/may outlast us/never literary criticize
and do not give one birdseed for punctuation.
