"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?
WELL,HERE WE ARE!
And we are having to get used to it
Throw out old calendars,newspapers,hatreds,habits,limits
Focus upon saying the date,time,year as it changes
You are not the same as you were yesterday
You will not be the same tomorrow.Even now,you change-
opinions,haircuts,tattoos,meals,ideas/to better fit this moment.
Most we have no control over-politics,Presidents,pop music
Some is ours to hold and cherish-mistakes,defects,illusions,projections
Cling to the skin of what will save you/as we step into the New
and get used to everything changing/faster than we want it to..
