"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?"
YOUR ART MUST GLOW AUM
I SAW MY HEART INSIDE A COMPUTER
Was it an EKG? No matter-I saw the beating of my drum
Source of my pulse-that channeled organ pumping blood
even when i sleep through most of it. In this, i love the science,
whereby calibrations of flow and beat and rhythm make more magic than music.
I wondered at the simplicity of this original beatbox-pump pump pumping
blood with a beat that kept a perfect four/four metronome
and i could see that on the screen! No wonder winged heart was the Sufi center
While warring Romans put their heads upon gold coins. Both head and heart in one Bodhi.
Decapitation as bad as broken hearts. Guillotine endings vs art attacks. May both beat Aum-
ticker tape thoughts and hearts deep bass drum. 'Your heart must glow on.."
