...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?

UPLIFTMENT
YOU DO NOT KNOW
You are at the peak /until you look down....
Ants on the street.Overview.Upliftment
Miracles work-but cannot be requisitioned.
Elders wise but thin as Auschwitz
Companions parallel,meeting @infinities.
Here you are-content/replete.
The rising happens like baking bread
Not like Hansel and Gretel.No fantasy this-
we actually unfold wings haiku strong
and rise into the positions that we need..
For flight is levity over gravity.Height and altitude /attitude.
You only know you have arrived
when people ask you "How did you get here?"

And you look UP-and there is no one there..
