...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?"


WANYI OYATE
Singing in languages  older than water over stone
Melting resistance -water over oil
Pipelines to Las Vegas from melting glaciers
White buffalo being born within Lakota Nation
Cries ,chants on YOUTUBE ,shared /replayed
Land sees the return of her voices
They carry no guns/ yet face dogs and pepper spray
They message stick/smoke signal to all,each ,every
You are North Dakota.Wake Up!Earth is crying
If you cannot recognize that you are made of water
your dry bone creek bed will have only oil for burial
