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?"

A GOOD NIGHT (OPEN MIC)
CROWDED STAGE
Open page -for each to write upon the ballooned air
Laughter when the fear releases into joy
Musicians collaborate /co-operate
Comedians enlighten and lift the vibe
Each testifies their own life lines
Unique and precious.New voices/old returnees.
Each has poems,songs,stories
And are surprised by warmth and welcome
They have all come long distances
Interior and exterior aligned/refined via acceptance
Each angel of word and song levitates home
A new show comes in and on /new forms again'
And the night air laughs with the happiness of friends..

...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.
