...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, yer Gonzo Grande Fromage, 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 within 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?"

BEFORE, AFTER AND DURING

THERE WILL BE CHANGES DEFYING COMPREHENSION
Foods that poison,water that burns
Fracking earthquakes,MONSANTO crops
Butterfly extinction,rainforest destruction
All of these happening while we breathe
at various rates of annihilation.We Are,Hear!
Both birdsong at dawn and road kill vulture food
Paradise and polluters.Peace and endless wars.
Oxymorons.Litotes.Paradoxes.Perfectly imperfect
We are part of the rubric/fabric/tapestry/flying carpet /fantasies
We are snowflakes,raindrops,drought,death
We are tree,wave,waterhole,sink hole
We are what we choose to see and to embrace
The news is made of digital perceptions
What we can do is invite human perceptions as reception
Before,during&after
 
“It’s such a lucky accident, having been born, that we’re almost obliged to pay attention.”
Pulitzer-winning poet and MacArthur genius Mark Strand on creativity and the artist's task – absolutely beautiful read:
