"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?
HERE COMES ART
LET HER IN TO OUR LIFE!
So we might become unframed,free,colorful and obvious
May we thread together in our common garb of language
Add that to image and emotion/compound with initiative
and individualize group consciousness
When she arrives,we can drive ennui away
dispel cynicism and sadness with panache &bright energies
that Declare here and Everywhere as ARTSPACE
Here.Right here.In this Moment.In this Life.
Art comes in -and claims us as her own...
