...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?"

SUNWEED CLOCKS
TOWERING LIKE GRANDFATHERS
The sunflowers are elders
Watching Old Sol in summer
as he scorches Texas skies
Clumps rise,wilde by roadside
Sometimes,solo witnesses
More likely,clumps of high rise bright
yellow Van Gogh 3D sculptures
I watch them demise,too-
when no rain and only sun  
makes them brown thin drooping stalks 
When young,they rise,eager to  follow bright sun skies 
When night comes,they snore like Japanese lanterns
when their power is turned off.Sunflowers are human,too

Sunflowers are you.
