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?"
Memoirs,biographies,films are strained
for evidence of genius.Poems,short stories,novels-
even PULL MY DAISY( movie)give patchwork histories/
now we have photographs of Young Beats/archived and kept
so that children of the future might see their Beat ancestors.
See!You are NOT the first to indulge in Buddhism as art
Nor were you the first to publically challenge mores.Nothing is new

with pix@readings,parties,Galleries and in homes.
So much was harvested from these initial inspirators-
now young eyes can see Beats when THEY were young
and come to provisional praise /precocious and brave!
A trove of rare photographs of the Beats finds a new home.
