"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 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 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!!"

Recognizing and affirming innate harmonies
Flowing with the bend of blood cells and the bright of red
Knowing pulse beat and all chambers of your heart open
Have you never seen it on TV?That big bulging inner mystery
without whose active beat /we would not be complete.
Artificial hearts and organs ,artificial blood
Artificial limbs,prosthetic organs made on a 3D printer
Soon we may supplant the natural with a bio-engineered program
Frontiers of ART and SCIENCE merge-like when they exhibited corpses
either as mummies or as plastified bodies("real"bodies)in Art Galleries/Museums.
Artificial Intelligence may soon challenge us to know the difference between Art and Life
Artists,bio-engineers and biologists will smile and say.."Today=they are One and The Same"
