...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?"

WHETHER IT BE THE HEMLOCK SOCIETY
or OD or toxic PTSD,or any number of fatal complaints ..
sometimes we have a choice in our manner of leaving.(mostly not..
Happens via accident or loss/illness that compounds.We are grounded.Ground dead.
before we have learned to fully fly.WHY?We learn from deaths of plants,animals,friends.
We watch as emotions drain teardrops via loss unexplained and personally tragic.
The whole world stops when we are in grief..You know folk who never get over it..
Death is for survivors,who learn and are burned by loss.Grief is anger/internalized..
We may never be able to stop mortality-yet we can hold each moment as a breath.
Closer than lovers/within our very skin/love Life as a lover..and only release
so the next breath can come in.Like tides,moon,cycles,seasons..we dream within..
