...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?" 

CROWDED SKYSCRAPERS
define PLACE by RELATIONSHIP
displace ORIGINAL with IMPORTED
forget INDIGENOUS.bar MIGRANTS
wall inside GATED COMMUNITIES
the BODY CORPORATE demands
you fit in with all that is.Closer,more
means smaller,less.Thin shivering
More homeless,dispossessed.
Add distance,then SPACE and TIME
Everything SLOWER now,in HALF-LIGHT
Here you can leave your shadows
Under the wings of a hovering hawk
Beneath skyclouds older than mountains

RELEASE your pain.Become winged/again..
