...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?"

POETRY MEDICINE
YOU MAKE&TAKE YR DAILY DOSE OF METAPHOR
It has side-effects .You are not sure of anything anymore.
Whether it is insomnia or sleep apnea,you awaken midnight to dawn
Thoughts and emotions race like mice in your night  cupboard
They scurry  relentless as feral cats.They fight back.
They WANT to be remembered.They wake you up to write them down.
By dawn,you will have forgotten EVERY THING-but right now
they are vivid reds and greens,gold,magenta,violets
with the aromas of distant meadows/pastures of plenty..
You hear birds in morning bushes-but you know that they are nesting/resting
You hum tunes you have not heard before/soon to be fog forgotten.
TAKE YR MEDICINE!It is antidote to a prosaic whirl
that is as flat as Columbus.DREAM DEEP!Night has powers

daylight only wishes that it has.You are awake now-START LIVING!
