"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?
MY BODY WILL NOT CARRY ARTIFACTS
No jewelry.No tattoos.No physical adornment
In fact,when i wear a ring/it falls off/falls away
So my head is not ornamental.It is as rich as Croesus.
Golden Aura.No gold required.
WHAT DO YOU WANT?
I want to stay young.In this Holy Moment
which exists/as long as breath/while we are here/as of now
This is enough.This magic of this moment.And this next.And this..And..
The Librarian is an Anarchist.The teacher is a Luddite.
I am sure that poet is a Communist.But they all look so placid.
So milk calm.So pond deep.So drinking in the Silence
They know something we will not admit-Body has Soul
It will not be controlled.
