...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?"

BRUGMANSIA
BIRD&THE BLING
Bird is a jazz of air-especially wilde!
Bird flips birds at gold cage cousins
trapped in a house not a home
Bird is not blue(though it sings blues well
Bird is not green(it has rarely seen contract lettuce
Bird is a rainbow lorikeet of early mornings
Golden crested warbler afternoons
Owl moon evenings.Tell time by the bird!
The seller of God Cages has nailed their wings
stuffed them like deer taxidermy.Air comes @night
to animate and liberate-that is why we sing to gold children-

to remind them of spirituals  and winged freedoms
