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?"
WHO ARE YOU?(asked my mirror..
"i am a part of you that reflects"
It does not matter which of us is real
Nor which one loves more
Nor the desperate comparisons-
Love's failures &accumulations
Not even that Light that allures(distant,searching)
Nothing gives the full image-
Not Photoshop,nor ZOOM,nor SKYPE
CISCO WEBEX nor FACEBOOK LIVE..
There are parts of us stored in other's eyes/lives
which ,like a stolen book/look,may never be returned for fines
"We are a part of all that we have ever met"
More awaits the replenishment/diminishment
This story has a beginning/in every conversation spinning
like Sufi dervish dancers on a knife edge
Sharp as constructions.Provisional as Freedom.
Release comes-when we let go-of definitions...
