...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?


MARY OLIVER CAN NEVER DIE
 SO LONG AS WE RE-LEARN THE LANGUAGES
of all impossible creatures winged, furred, fabulous
How they still live inside us(no seed is ever extinct
And if we forget-to be reminded /that doubt is also a belief
Sight is also both vision and emotion/Life pulses through us and all
with more than river blood and heart waters. River seeks sea /
We seek Eternity-in raindrops and in fog, heat and desert strong
enough to wake us up, and sing us back into Dream.This we know,
and knew, and need reminding of/every time we witness wild birds rising
and the cage of the sky falling beneath their wings..This is when we sing

of Mary Oliver's Dreams...
