...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?"


OCEANS OF SAND/SEAS OF AIR
CURRENTS OF HEAT MOVING .STILLNESS
There are elements we are immersed within.
Invisible air until exhaust emissions.Sand particles beneath
all micro worlds for tinier creatures/who feel us as boots and occupiers.
And do not mention water in a desert/fracked and broken.
Oil and gas have fiery missions.They blaze night sky eyes long distances.
Water is sued to squelch them/to dilute their ferocious gossip.
Heat and capacity love distance.It allows space to dream.
Up close,all machinery is obvious.Beneath soil,seeds sleep
Here you dream of waters-of rains that scour and storm.
Yet you need air /heated air..as much as the earth you stand upon..
