...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?"


AHEAD OF ME
STAY AHEAD OF ME
Whether it be in age,wisdom,adaptability
As an elder,you are example and paragon
The past gets too easily lost-for example
Last night,i took photographs of Ruta Maya poets
to the survivors of Ruta Maya @HIDEAWAY open jam
Few recognized anyone.One or two had glimmers of recognition
but all those banks of images are strangers now.Somewhere else.
There is no turning back.Coffee shops close just like castles burn.
Sanctuary is always temporary.Poems are warnings/waiting to be forgotten.
Who was Cassandra?Related to Pollyanna?Chicken Little?
Who was Hassan?Lalla?Mirabai?Who are you -to be so curious?
Stay ahead-even SIRI is uncertain...And the Poetic GPS is stuck in Free Verse..
