...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?"

MOON AMONG WATER
As moon reflects
every surface mirror
Beneath her
(we are beneath her
Night our embrace
dealing w/daily Daemons /dust devils
Enough to dream between nightmares
projected fantasies stretch that gap of fact
litany of dereliction Earth Day/Moon Night
Twilight of littered shorelines.Watch
as waters rise in Houston.Earth opens Japan/Ecuador
Sink holes of Theories.Broken roads.Prince leaves
We pick up threads /filaments.Weave Tales to convince
that witness is no protection.Change compounds/accelerates
Rainforests burn  .Cities heat.We seek cool /global warnings.
We are between/among this and these.Thin gossamer air

Choking cars.Be bicycle,pedestrian.Convince me!
