"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?
LISTENING TO MY CAT
SHE DOES NOT NEED WORDS
For she has claws.And a sharp way
of using them.She,too,eats animals.(Hers come in a can.
She knows i will not eat her.On this we agree.
All other issues require diplomacy..
Take that collar ,so she will not be
picked up by constabulary.(She wants only to be free..
So i find (shaken loose) her connection to me
apart from feeding and grooming and otherwise letting her be.
There is(of course)some cat in me.
