...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?" 

SILENCES ECLIPSED BY SPEECH
RIVER WANTED TO SPEAK
Dry as dust or full as flood
liquid core within each,every,all
how to sustain a flow?

TREE DESIRED AUDIENCE
creaking,swaying,bird-nesting
Roots deep in the rich earth
Dutch Elm disease,tree-rot

EARTH HERSELF OPENED UP
Sink-holes,earthquakes post-fracking
We fell into the belief that falling
might lead us to an end of things

AIR,EXHAUSTED,ASKED RELIEF
Without her,there would be no speech
Cars,trucks,cows,factories

and all those addicted to meat
