...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?


FLAME
I CAME HERE TONIGHT
to celebrate the birthday of my ex-
He would have been 29 today.
We went out on his birthday 3 years ago
He shot himself outside my home
After telling me how i disappointed him
i want to keep this positive.Remember him /well..
2
so she tires of sleeping with others
in order to have a bed for the night
if she had a job,she could get a car
then a space to sleep in /that is secure
so she works and sleeps in the hospital
and holds on to that job for her life/well
3
she was brought up in a bar in Boston
she has tattoos and noserings
and a smile that defines the very air around her
she said she would go home and eat

and then return to us/well..
