...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 Thom'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?"

THIS IS NOT FOR LATER
Later can wait.This is for you,me and this moment
Outside even the Cancer Wolf Moon is clouded
Inside,the room fills up with books of new poems
They do not care if any eyes seek them
They await the indeterminate act of dreaming
For,if every thing is conscious/and all of us are One
There is a story locked inside every Russian doll
And layers of onions ,and shales of Troy
dig up gold that once was anothers.
Her bones were once silver,her hair  all bright gold
Her painted nails something beyond bought and sold
No matter her years,no matter how old
She was made for her age,not anothers
Owners will change,like ashes and graves
become Real Estate hiding new horrors
All that we are is made for our time

Those who follow-must make their own stories
