...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?"

IS PARIS FLOODING?
AND BELGIUM,TOO?
Are they emptying the Louvre
to keep art's past dry?
Has our Seine broken banks?
Like Barton Springs ,Lady Bird Lake
Like the Colorado River ,like dam floodgates
open/opening to release.We/we are banned
from Lake Travis in uncertain weather like this.
Drowned.Cars float .Tubers don't.Bodies are found.
Rain .Thunder.Lightning. Love illuminates our clouded skies.
Eyes look UP to see water fall down.FLASH FLOOD warnings abound.
Love is a wild horse.Rain falls.We rise.Dark of night
we take comfort in water's rise.For Normal means Drought-
but not with this much liquidity about..Rise to the storm
Weather this one.Unknown is coming.Sends down waterfalls .
We rise.
