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?"
CLINGto the singing birds of dawnthe flow of watersall IndigenousCloser to Earth than air conditioningWhining in the heat.Crying for release.Re-Lease Your Wonder!Those sparkling solutionswhich you apply like medicinal salve.SING!to the empty echos/the lonely sockets of lost electricities.They too,need to spark and Light!They,too,count Editions of Breathgathered in volumes of virtual silicon chips.In the Clean Room,where you confess all errant Desires,you attempt to fly.Only these Walls stop you.Only you will tryagain and again,until the beating of your wings in the moth flameburns like Henry Miller and Anais Nin.SING!
