"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?
10 Neon Places that Are Already a Futuristic Dystopiat
FUTURE IS ALREADY PAST
Tokyo's Neon Kabukicho (Shinjuru Municipality)
Hong Kong's Mong Kok,Seoul's Heukseok Market
Shanghai's Nanjing Road,and every capital city's Chinatown
resonate existing Las Vegas /New York/Abu Dhabi dystopias..
The City is Now History.Neon over Human.Stacked bodies High Rise.
Selling Matjips as village nostalgia,while anonymity and anomie rule.
I love the IDEA of cities,but cannot afford London(Lungdoom)prices
To live in a high rise condominium cage in the air seems an executive nightmare
Soon,low cost humans cannot afford to live anywhere.Hence refugees
settlement camps,travelers,squatters and eternal homeless.
Humans love to bleed together.The sores of cities attract.
Science fiction futures are now science fact.
