...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.

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?"

HOSPITAL HAIKUS
HOSPITAL ILLNESS-
like Legionnaire's Disease
(You caught this in here)

INFECTION?EASY!
Anyone can make mistakes
(Your life in their hands)

NURSES ON FRONT LINES
They clean up after doctors
have made their errors..

CAME IN TO THIS PLACE
Discharged quite prematurely
Who heals the healer?

REIKI BY BEDSIDE
Sending Light to those in need
Perhaps one day-You?

COMPASSION FATIGUE
End of a too long night shift
Who cares for carers?

This month:  Showing Vulnerability 
October Is Haiku Month--
Get Your Submissions Ready!

Dear Pulse readers,

We are pleased to announce that in the month of October Pulse will be reviewing haiku submissions for publication in 2020.

As you know, haiku are emailed to our subscribers and posted on the Pulse home page every other week. After a week on the home page, haiku take up residence in our Haiku Collection, where they can be viewed individually or as part of a Haiku Slide Show.

Please visit our Submission Guidelines for complete instructions on how to submit haiku. To find out what criteria Neal Whitman, our haiku editor, will use to judge haiku--and you may encounter a surprise or two--I invite you to read his Haiku Rules of the Road.

We welcome submissions from those who have previously published in Pulse and those who have not. You are are invited to submit up to three haiku. Because of the volume of submissions, we cannot publish more than one haiku from any individual. As always, we are looking for previously unpublished pieces inspired by your own experiences in health care; anyone who's ever been to the doctor's office is welcome to submit.

Haiku can be submitted beginning on October 1 and ending on October 31.

With best autumn wishes,

Paul Gross
Editor
