...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?"

STARS BEYOND STARS
constellations and galaxies
exert a gravity within us
like moon tide seasons push and pull
beyond Hubble-pin pricks of light
become huge spiral systems
numbers beyond numbers
space time curve bends
expanding and contracting
(it is a LIVING uni-verse)
Organic and inter-related
as above,so below
we are each other's air
We steal each other's water
We make each other an "OTHER"
so we can bomb and drone and kill
while the MOTHER OF ALL POEMS
sings as these planets sing
to each other and for each other
as birds sing within trees
to and for and with each other
if we could only see
if we could only sing

together
