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?"

LODGED IN TIME (OUR LOVE)
HAS DIFFERENT REFERENCE POINTS
New folks move in(want different things)
@the moment -housing.Our Parks suffer
via overloading Festivals.We lose access.
We lose venues(high rents).I came to Austin early 90s-
Computer boom.Post 80s bust.Positive poetic reception.
High Times Tea Bar and Brain Gym.Chicago House.
Electric Lounge.Joe's Greek Diner.All were or became open mic venues.
Forgotten history now-like Les Amis for the Slacker generation.
Or the Armadillo for the 60s .Vulcan Gas Company for 70s.
Lost /lodged in time-Remember Olde South Austin?
Full English Cafe,Strange Brew,Bakehouse,Rad Radam,Hideaway?
Now Quacks,Lazy Daze,Reverie Bookstore.Mutation/Reincarnation.
We carry our Personal Altars as Memory Palaces.Our Ages have Pasts-
we can no longer live there. Homeless in Austin means something else entirely..

LINGUA LAUGHTER
WE WISH TO SPEAK
Taught/trained to be silent
Will you silence the birds in the sky?
WE WISH TO SING
Entertainment is an industry
No village fairs or amateur hours
Hence to open mics and Meet-ups
WE WISH TO MEET
but this plague of fear constricts
ZOOM is not enough
WE WISH TO LIVE,AND LAUGH
We don't need a license
We listen to the birds
and sing and dance with them

Mealworms,,Stinkbugs,Caterpillars,Maggots ,Slugs,and (of course)
Witchetty Grubs. CLEAN PROTEIN !As distinct from 
horror!shock!slaughterhouse cow,beef,chicken,turkey Animal Cruelty,
or bottom feeding lobster,crabs and shrimp. Grasshoppers contain 
essential amino acids. They  prevent protein deficiencies.
Greeks ate grasshoppers. Romans ate beetle grubs reared on flour and wine..
Leviticus permitted the eating of locusts,grasshoppers and crickets.
Animal eating is gross and passe. Insect-eating the new Escargot.
Remember honey is the vomit of bees.Venezuelans eat French Fried Ants.
Japanese eat baby bees.We,reared on exotic meats like tinned tiger and elephant meat,
can adapt from such ethnocentrisms by changing our insect-eating vocabulary .
Use Latin names-TENEBRIO (worm)CUICHE,much like CHEVALINE(French for horsemeat)
Last year,one billion humans suffered from food hunger/insecurity .We MUST eat something!
TIME TO EAT THOSE LOCUSTS !and cure our cultural cringe. CLEAN PROTEIN  with fancy names..

...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.
