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?"

MAN SHEDS (ARE PRIVATE TEMPLES)
WHERE TOOLS GO TO RETIRE
and come out when a new project
delights the eyes and heart and mind
of any elder who thinks inside of the box.
He will disappear for hours,demonstrate his powers
by making some metal machine work again
that up to now was full of rust and dust.
Friends come only by invitation
(perhaps for consultation)-for there are projects
so immense in difficulty/one mind alone can never see solution.
Conferences solve much.How to restore,clean,repair..
How to extend,clip,add on,take off.All require meditation.
Most demand conversation.So the tap tap tapping
of the last male Sanctuary,can only best be preserved
by other Solitary Seekers,who know The Way Of Shed
And by so knowing-are released...from domesticity..

...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.
