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?"

WAVE THEORY/STRING THEORY
YOU CAN RETURN(BUT YOU WILL NOT BE THE SAME..
Whether First Wave, Second Wave, or Third
Every wave is not the same. Uncounted in time and intensities
Particle Theory, Matter as Mostly Space Theory
We pass through Borders, re-defined/"fluid as molten glass"
Resistance attracts limits. Waters find a wave around-as does air.
Earth Burns. Fire learns the ways of Pele and Vulcan.
Myth and Magic Resurrect as Philosophy of Science.
Posit Phlogiston ,Ether to explain errant data.
Imagine a Pineal Gland/a Third Eye. YOUTUBE cat videos
of cats under doors or through tiny openings. Civilizations re-surface
from under lava ,sea beds, with global warming. Permafrost 
reveals mammoth DNA,bacteria and viruses.Smallpox in graves.
Covid 19 returns in 2021 -with multiple variants  of varying strengths.
Everything returns. Everyone returns. But we are not the same.

I HAVE BANKRUPTED PUBLISHERS
WHICH IS WHY SELF-PUBLISHING
and then gifting anyone interested
In the worlds of selling poetry,i have sold none
Given,exchanged,bartered(for dental work)-YES!
Since everybody is a poet,the demand is Narcissistic
Yet folk still publish. Anthologies still are produced.
And poetry continues to be a secret language that every body speaks.
To me-an essential service-like conversation,philosophy,debate ,discussion
To those of other persuasions-an historical curio-represented by a quill,or manual typewriter
Most folk KNOW of poets. Schools are nominal in their critiques-but it is all autopsies
Amanda Gorman as the new Jewel. Media friendly,like Rupi Kaur.
Text poetry lives,as does Instagram verse.Diaries fill with unseen swoons.
Slams compete for pools of Slam poets.Elders rhyme their retirements.
Others embrace -ISMS with bullet words and bomb verses.
Third World First Lines become Front Lines.It matters-in Iran,Cuba,China,Russia-
poets fill prisons.Internet is censored.Phones tapped.In fact,one CIA Officer was tasked
with interpreting the poems Osama Bin Laden composed in the cassette caves of Tora Bora.
Happily ,here,we are ignored/invisible.Unless you are a whistleblower. Prison or exile-
Like Neruda,Ovid,Cicero.Or killed like Lorca.History makes heroines,victims,martyrs of isolated poets.
What is needed-are more-deeper,committed clarion callers for a future as yet undefined
before Silence censors all of us. Again...

ZAPPASTUFF

 inside the bitter feud between Frank Zappa and The Velvet Underground

When the world zigged, Frank Zappa zagged. In fact, you'd be hard-pressed to call his brand of contrarianism the same type of iconoclastic behaviour ...

When Grand Funk Lived With Todd Rundgren and Frank Zappa: Exclusive Interview
Grand Funk worked with Frank Zappa on 1976's Good Singin', Good Playin' album. That seems like a collaboration that could have gone either way.

Subject: HISTORICALLY,A FUTURIST


"TOMORROW NEVER KNOWS"
There exists a man who lived his life by Beatles lyrics
"HELP!"."WE CAN WORK IT OUT"
When it became elevator cliches-"LET IT BE"
He had to turn to individual Beatles-'IMAGINE"
Aware that plagiarism was rampant
He turned back to folk and blues-but even Zen
Copies and transplants,borrowing,embroideries
Recycled Riffs and Trivial Pursuit.He updated his cliches
to ADULT CONTEMPORARY,but found his Muse wore borrowed garments..
There seemed no end to this...Stitchings of the garment cloth of People's Anthems
needed momentary infusions-from KUMBAYA to GIVE PEACE A CHANCE
to WHAT'S SO FUNNY ABOUT PEACE,LOVE &UNDERSTANDING?
It is coming in to Hiroshima/Nagasaki month,and bombed silence/shadow people
Peace Cranes and Remembrance Temples needed Commemorative Lyrics.
Silence after One Minute's Silence after John Cage after Released Butterfly Winged Silences
And still the Sounds of Silence...

ALL OF THE ABOVE
BRETT WHITELY ,AUSTRALIAN PAINTER
added natural elements to his large works
whether it be leaves,branches,found objects
Problem was-Curators saw his Art falling apart
"That is Only Natural"he replied..And it is-
Deterioration of the Natural is an inevitable process
We decline,recline,lose hair and hearing over time
Our Life is Art(feral and unframed).I knew another painter-
Benny Zable,who incorporated advertising in his paintings of trams.
Of course,those ads were on those actual trams
but he was accused of "commercialism"by including them.
And Richard Tipping,whose ROAD SIGN art is subversive
in that he turns the conventional into "un"-AIRPORT becomes AIRPOET,CROSSING becomes-SING!
and the lazy eye does not even see this visual anarchy.Juan Davila
throws scraps of letters and wrapping into his collages.Christo actually wraps bridges.
If art is a soup,it is both soup de jour and stone soup,featuring ALL OF THE ABOVE
There is no WRONG WAY-just a WINGED WAY. That's what the sign said!

...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
