...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?

GRIEF, ANGER LOSS
ALL@ONCE.
You lose someone.Triggers emotions
Whatever level you feel/more lives beneath
Unexploded emotional ordnance.Land mines.
You trip over responses not knowing.Explosions.Tears.Rage
Time may not dilute .Nor heal.Nor assuage.
It may add more fuel for thoughts and meditations.
Complex this simple loss.We do not reconcile the emotional bank statement.
We carry fire.We get burned.Anger fuels a confusion
because there seems no resolution.No balance.No Zen.
Integrating the unwilling is like welcoming homeless /refugees.
Stranger emotions visit.Who are these?Counseling demands listening.
An equality of respect.There is no real dealing with unconditional death.

'You don't get over grief, you just learn to have it as part of your life.'
This analogy of how we deal with bereavement is spot on.
