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?"

"KAITIAKITANGA"(Guardianship)
Indigenous (animism)spirit understandings
already equate WHENUA(Earth)with placenta.
They see rivers and forests as TUPUNA(ancestors)
Hence the Whanganui River in New Zealand gained legal personhood in 2017
and both Ecuador and Bolivia both recognize RIGHTS OF NATURE.
Artificial concepts such as Corporations (like the East India Company)
have long held legal personhood.Now the Natural World of rivers and forests,
air,water,earth  and fire-are slowly being accorded equivalence.Philosophically,this started
with Immanuel Kant and Thomas Hobbes,and the rights of domestic animals.
Once they were only seen as property,and damages assessed via losses.
'Personhood" began with two tame captive chimpanzees,Tommy and Kiko,
Kiko being famed for understanding English and using sign language.
HABEAS CORPUS  was the legal doctrine used for this extension of legal capacity.
Whether the Rights of Nature are expressed declaratively or imperatively,
more Nations are using Indigenous concepts to empower clean air and water.
New Zealand and Argentina now recognize the rights of gorillas.
Pantheism and animism combine to defend forests against loggers,
rivers against dams,and preserve fishing rights ancestorally applied.
Even in Austin,Elder Trees are protected by our Tree Ordinance
and Barton Creek water quality preserved against real estate development.
All rights are sustained only by legal appeals and popular demonstrations.
Trees,water and air quality depend upon us.We need new laws -for Wilderness..

RIDING THE CHAOS WAVES
Each day appears as a different Avatar-
whether Astrological or simply a Magic Number..
Significance comes from defying Habit/Repetition
so every moment can be re-programmed.
What you did when young no longer fits
(same as yesterday/same as tomorrow)
Those voices in your head may be wise enough
to have you focus on that which is not necessarily in your mind
but may be crocodile SNAP! in the river mud of your sub-conscious..
My Chicago friend says she wants to turn off her ant /beesnest brain/
but i said she would not be happy as a habit zombie.She agreed.
Sometimes we need that adrenalin of alacrity to activate and agitate ourselves
past yoga and Tai Chi and meditation serenity-into the chaos of BRING IT ON!
WHAT DRAGON DARES ?WHO'S NEXT!?

TRAVIS COUNTY &THE AUSTIN CITY COUNCIL
Finally declare a Public Health Emergency
Deaths from overdoses have reached a threshold
sufficient to alarm all Public Health Authorities.
Even the Poets have lost at least one significant soul
to that Fentanyl that knows no boundaries,limits nor laws..
Adulteration is the danger.Adding Fentanyl to familiar drugs,
destroying trust.Who knows how the grains glow?
Lives lost far too many-our knowledge slow
Not fast enough to bring youth back from the edge
Nor deep enough in knowledge to renew Life's Pledge..

WE HEAL &ARE HEALED
We love and are loved
Source is both Cause and Effect
NOW is both Was,Will Be and Is..
You are more than the ground you grew from
More than the air you breathe
All that ever happened to ,with,because of you
Everyone you met,knew,touched,grew close to
All that you remember and forget
All written,spoken,sung.Cadences and rhythms..
Hold them close .They are all parts of you
Rooms in which you can dance and perambulate-
Free Will and Fate..

SHIP CLEANING&JOHN MASEFIELD
EVANS DEAKIN SHIPYARDS
Long gone now-no jobs for boys
But once,i came,with my father
Bottle of beer for the Foreman
sees me underneath the hull
Scraping rust from this future wreck
Being small meant i could crawl
through spaces barred to bulky men
SCRAPE!SCRAPE!Eternal rust&dust
Romance of seas fails in dry dock
Then,to the POLLY WOODSIDE
19th century coal carrier(with sails)
Maintained by The National trust
I got to watch that ship roped and tied
It would never move again-i almost died
Until i sold that catering caravan-floated away
Polly Woodside (tied)still floats for students and tourists
Today,a Ferry sank in Sydney Harbor..
"I must go down to the sea again..to the lonely sea and the tides.."

 NOTICE

The eagle-eyed amongst you will have also noticed that the Gonzo Multimedia websites have changed and are in a process of flux, so there are no individual sales links at the moment. But check out www.gonzomultimedia.co.uk for a thing of wonder.
There is a hunky-dory, all singing, all dancing, Gonzo Publications website is now pretty well done, although there are still nine authors who need personal pages. You can find it at www.gonzopublishers.com and then tell me what a clever fellow I am. It even has a haiku to explain why some links are not finished:
"These links do not work, now but they will do so soon, we apologise"

Enjoy.

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?"

WARHOL'S "MARILYN"=$195 million'
That's not art!That's MARKETING!"
World of auctions,promotion,advertising
Rich move into Art as value appreciates
They are not making any more Basquiats!
BUT Banksy breaks the market when he slices art
and the particles are worth more than the original
Dali and Warhol had "Schools "of factory artists
where blank canvases were "signed"by the artist ,then assembled
In fact,THE FACTORY was where Warhol assembled his art
Gaudy print screens of Fab figures-Elvis,Jagger,Marilyn
Warhol sold a banana as a record cover,and Jagger's lips as icon and motif..
Fame can be sold,imitated,assembled ,copied
Stamped not signed,with price tags added
Art eats art like Juan Davila.I prefer Photoshop-
Hyper-Realist Artists like Jeffrey Smart.Hockney.
So image dissolves into movie becomes promotional poster
becomes auctioned to the highest bidder.Just like Jesus.
...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.
