...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?"

TRUTH BY DAYLIGHT MORPHS VIA MOONLIGHT
WHAT WAS TRUE FOR YOU WHEN YOUNG
No longer Shakespeares when ancient
Baby womb truth survival dependence interconnection
Illusion independence economic and personal
Truth of a tree differs with bulldozers
Water with fracking.Moon with sun.Stars with dark matter.
We are all in dancing relationships.What matters is not matter.
More a door that opens to a library of forests.tree talk.Leaf knowledge
As each particle consciousness sings affirmations
Each singing daylight hour seeks words for midnight rivers
All life has language and a way of linking.Shell of truth differs from core believing.
All that was once changes with perceiving.There are no Absolutes.(Yes!There are!
But here is where you begin your expedition.Spirit Quest or Pilgrim-
in micro/macro choices we settle down and settle in for the duration

Sometimes even a half-life lasts a million...
