...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?

DOGS HEAR MORE THAN WE DO
FLIES&BEES SEE MORE THAN WE DO
Sounds beyond our audible spectra
Visions of colors we never see
What cannot be measured seems stronger
than any quantifiable e-motion/Weigh your feather
with a heart/Balance the scales of just/ICE is now
like Fentynl/a Border Crossing/the balance of payments
as Karmic as Osiris.Disappointment a projection/like Powerplay Photoshop.
What is outside the frame needs no Judge(nor Jury)
By staying alive,the chances of continuance compound like interest.
Certainty and Choice ,Free Will and Control compete
for attention that we seek/To find an answer
May not mean an end.Journeys always begin.

Again.
