...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?

CLOUDS CONSPIRE LIKE CORPORATIONS
CAT AFTERNOON.SLEEPING SHADOWS
      Ezra Pound Loves T S Eliot
            Trickle of a Plumber's mistake.
Sorrow!What arrow pierced your Desires?
Anger!Your danger is not transformed!
Joy!Your Height is Elevation!
Envy-You compare yourself/Find yourself wanting..
Jealousy-Love is not loss.When it leaves,it is gone.
       Kiss you tonight..Horizon.Sea.Sand. 
To Be is not all.To Continue is Courageous.
Motel Beds have Histories.And bugs.
Being ANONYMOUS added Annoyance.
Each day's Casualty List of Strangers gets closer to My  Family.
Tides Reassure Continuance.Returning.Receding Air Line.
Fast as FEDEX.Slow as UPS.I stay within my letter box/Praise our Post Office.
All those Gods in Asgard.All those Saints in Heaven.Here they are again.Leaving.
Most of us have most of what we need to get by.This is why poem.Petition.Song.

            If only the moon could read this.If only the moon could read.
