...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?"

SONG OF SILENCE
FOR A LONG TIME,WITHDRAWN AS A CAVE
Solitary witness.Distant.Wanted to be air
but it always moved away.Earth stayed-
hence gardens/blossoms.Even then-winter/drought.
Do not like fire-so fickle,so dangerous.
Which left me with water,which i drank.
Swam.Dived.Imbibed.Enjoyed.Waterfalls.Rainforest.
Body surfing waves.Returning to littoral origins.
I carried water within me(Aquarian)
Loved the flow and depth of wells and springs.
Knew that which issued forth from fissures
pure until we captured /bottled and sold it.
Water consciousness like tree root connectedness-
water talks in bubbling exhiliration.Fountain joy!
I do not like the damming of water/agricultural ponds/salmon farms.
Give me the salmon that fight heights upstream/waters
that surge through rocks and caverns.And here i am-

back to the cave again..Recluse,drinking / in silence.
