"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 FRIEND WHO IS DYING IS WRITING
About his friend who has died already
About the life he lived(public and private)
So it will be two Memoirs..of someone else..
Clinically and dispassionately,he is asking
for the WHY of a life that was unfulfilled
Yet PASSIONATE in the extreme.Perhaps mirroring?
Pursuing a detective track trace on MEANING
to see if ,in the time he has,he might find it in reflection?
He does not know.He divides these Tales into
One that is TRUE,the other a softer focus glow
What people WANT to hear about the departed.
Who will do the same for him?
