...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?

SLOW
river still.Lake deep.Clouds make promises
Sleep in the heat.Indoors-fans/air conditioning.
Water calls .Waterfalls.Water rises  to Spring level.
Scattered and sporadic showers.Break tyrant temperatures.
White turns pink,then brown.Shade  and hats and creams on skin.
Sounds of tin bands in metal fatigue.Folk strum solo regrets.
Space to digest .Afternoon siesta.Moonlit fiesta.Stars orchestra.
Too fast/you will miss.Slow down.Kiss.
Skin calls for skin .Waves of solar powered positivities.
Light makes day bright as truth.Night takes dreams and puts them on the moon.

Slow down.Small planet.Blue.
