...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?"

VOYAGE,VOYAGERS
Internally,we dream/astral travel
User imagination to flow/fly above/beyond borders/barriers
Rest in the slips between space and time
Externally,we are in a body(of work-
that we tour to Places of Pilgrimage
Deeper and Wiser ,Older and Sharper than we may ever be
Here is where time takes a Rest Stop/Stillness enters
We can keep it at bay-with muzak,memories,mulching
so we digest what WAS rather than what IS
We carry a Cloud (of Unknowing) into the icloud
We seek Matrix in the Grid.Even offline,we seek connection
Return to Paradise Forbidden.It is now Another City.Eden Virtual
People sing Ancient Songs beseeching Return to Primal

Unless it is-then it is not.We are the same-never content with what we have not got.
