...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?"

CONSUMMATUS EST
ONCE YOU LEAVE(O Viking Funeral-
All that you own must leave too-
be donated away,disposed of..
to make an end of ends.Once you
are no longer,all that was yours
belongs to others.Even temporarily.
Attention to detail is required.Inventories.Assets
All dispersed .With forms appropriate to function.
Is this not the Zen of now?-to be aware
that every breath is both first and last..
and all life both gift and provisional.
We all know those who have passed
We adjust to ghosts and shadows
They are here but not here.Slim as photographs

digital and deleted.
