...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?" 


YOU DO NOT NEED TO KNOW/HOW
ART WILL STEAL YOUR ATTENTION
You will be Mesmerized/Hypnotized/Seduced /Abandoned
Kinapped for Immortal Moments/when Time stops
You get off-and watch -as new worlds come /born into view
You will see /feel things differently.Matters not what causes this-
more the Truth of Consequences.Art Knows You!Inside you-
an altar dedicated to the moon,rivers ,forests and all that is  wild .
Around you-doors and windows into wonder.Some framed,most not..
These are icons,symbols,avenues,streetscapes of Possible Perfections
previously unseen /unknown/unfelt.They know you!They use all means possible-
color ,shape,form,style-to unhook you from square box certainty.To remind you
of flow,movement,dance,dynamics.Verbs over nouns.Doing over waiting.
You may feel moved to create.It is for the moon,rivers,forests,wolves and all wildness

Call it ART.She does not need a name.9 Muses known.More await outside the frame..
