"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?
HELPING YOUR HOME/LESS
WHERE SHE IS LIVING NOW IS NEW AUSTIN
A gated un-Community of stacked cell blocks
that once was a gathering spot for South Austin Homeless
They have had to move deeper into what is left of the Green Belt
She knows this-and reaches out to assist.One on heroin.
He shares with her daily horrors of withdrawal and overdosing
Of the casualties of the "War On Drugs"and his need to survive
Each day,his medicine changes.She supplies alternatives
so he can slowly not be @risk to his own life.She cries
when she shares his life.He lives(for the moment)
on a temporary site,deep in the heart of Deep South Austin.
She is his life line.She shares his life in lines /and cries..
