THOM THE WORLD POET: The Daily Poem


Rob Ayling 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 Tom's poetry tapes and guest appearances with Daevid Allen, Gilli Smyth 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 with in 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? why not indeed!!" (The wondrous poetpic is by Jack McCabe, who I hope forgives me for scribbling all over it with Photoshop)

DANCE OF PHYSICS AND POETRY
MAGISTER LUDI posited a world of mathematical certainties
similar to the Grail of Wittgenstein's Grammar
Snakes&Serpents are both DNA &slippery phenomenae-
Black Swans,Heisenberg,Heraclitus,Flux&Flow
Until maths and physics projected Possibilitity Theories
and Bi-location became a CERN certainty.Yes,Dorothy-
you can be Schrodinger's cat.You can bi-locate.
Once elementary particles dance a two-step
bi-polarity became hilarity.Bye-bye Materialism!
Most of us is holes and space and distances
We live within/are enmeshed between multiverses
simultaneous and synchronous/and this hasalways been a dance
Levity and gravity,direction and energy-the steps perhaps Mandelbrots,
spirals,codes,seashells or any metaphor worth exploring.
Maths alone describes a cage of thought."Dreaming 13 impossible things before breakfast"
is both beginning and foundation.O-and there is none-just the journey/exploration..

ONWARD !THROUGH THE FOG!(sez Captain Quackenbush!

...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.
