"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?
LIBRARIES LIVE AROUND ME
(i do not need to borrow-only to give..
and every VCR a gift..and cassettes
of bands forgotten and replayed
Just try to find a cassette player these days!
And time,in which i was so rich
has run away with years of reading and watching movies
Where is today?It has become tomorrow overnight!
And "all my yesterdays are lighted candles"
While candles are a fire risk,and LEDs replace incandescent
Hybrids replace gas.Robots replace jobs.I do not own tomorrow
to watch movies,read books,wait for summer storms
to soak the skin of heat ,and settle in
for garden Autumn.
