...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.

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?"

LUCKY LICKED LANGUAGES
LUCKY LOVED LINGUISTIC EFFICACIES
Polysyllables delighted her
Lilt of language touched
that tongue inside her ear
She heard ,responded,reacted
as if sound were a wave inside her
Spiral shell auricles
Ocean seashell orchestras
Musical waves floated her
into a deeper Sea of Tranquility
To hear changed her inner architecture
To sing  her outside world
Lines between the two became blurred
She turned -from mono to stereo
to quadraphonic -with speakers in every room
She felt every note/every emotion-
love to joy,loss to gloom.Only silence

ignored her.
