THOM THE WORLD POET: The Daily Poem

Rob Ayling, yer Gonzo Grande Fromage, writes:

"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?"

MY LIFE AS A SANDWICH
MY LIFE AS A GRAND BUFFET
My life as unframed art.My life as a sound track.
My life as a montage .A collage of current events.
A pastiche of influences.An amalgam of random events.
Life itself as stories told not sold/shared and bared.
When whispers turn to gossip in the circles,currents and eddies,
Everything has a place/a space in the continuing continuum.It is never the same.
Retro turns nostalgia into an industry.Bobble-headed hippies @Woodstock memories
Books written about people who sang .Songs written about authors.
Architecture as memorial.Statues toppled from public places.
Each has altars erected in kitchens,lounges and bedrooms.
Every house a Memorial.Every day another Event.Here we are again.
Call me pastiche.

...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
