"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?
IF CIVILIZATION IS A BOOK
Books are still being written
If a short story,ditto.As for songs-
you can down and upload millions daily/
and art pours out of homeless art galleries..
Versions of visions get distorted in journalism
and history is rewritten headlines.If you ever thought
there was a "Golden Age",you may well be living in it.
As for "civilization"?-it is an ongoing river
that will not be dammed ,nor stopped by vacant observers
and is best known by its creators..
