Make America:

Does
Make America Great Again

Also mean
Make America Straight Again?

How about
Make America White Again?

Maybe
Make America
AntiFeminist Again?

Another possibility,
Make America
Christian Evangelical Supremacist
Again?

And,
more elaborately,
Make America
Business As Usual
Patriarchal/Capitalist
Autonomously Empowered
and Exclusively Enlightened
Again?

GREATness
is soooooooo much more
morally ambiguous
than public HEALTH
and global climate SAFEty.

I would feel so relieved
if my RedRight friends
and family
would patriotically fly
and pleasantly post
Make America Healthy Again
banners,
hats,
bumper stickers,
condoms,
masks,

And MAHA foreign
and domestic
green policy statements.

Setting the Bully Table

The often unnoticed first strategic step
in bullying
is to isolate.

Religious
political
economic
and/or sexual bullying
begins, already,
feeling entitled to pervasively disempower,
dissociate,
disinvest,
unenlighten,
excommunicate,
lock up,
terminate from employment,
send to the reservation,
asylum
ghetto,
wrong side
of the LeftBrain dominant
self-righteous tracks.

Deeply separate,
divide and, thereby, expose
and bully
that Other,
or those Others,
who need to learn their place,
separate and deservedly unequal,
to relearn their divinely-inspired space
of oppression
neglect
punishment

For being wrong,
too needy greedy,
too ignorant,
uneducated
simple
quiet and sneaky
queer
unbinary
effeminate
pretentious
hypocritical
weird looking, sounding, smelling,
frightening
angry
threatening…

Such alien Others
are first isolated
at least by disreputation,
then abused

First neglected
shunned
Othered
alienated
unaccepted,

Then ridiculed
used
raped
vilified

Blatantly and falsely accused
of being motivated
to dismiss
and impoverish
the monoculturing Bullies
through stealth
or by speaking their lying,
biased
self-serving Truth

Which is always ignored
until They get too uppity
again.

Bullies
and their Victims
are, thereby, deprived
of experiencing compassionate
cooperatively appreciated
and co-invested
dialogue.

Bullies
and their Victims
thereby declare and suffer wars
where everyone,
including plants and animals,
soil and water and air quality,
suffers and loses
except, in the bookkeeping department,
the military-industrial
short-term corporate profit Bullies

Who will not realize
their self-victimizing
long-term health and safety losses
until degeneratively isolated
from all prospects for a livable
sustainable
humane
sacredly compassionate
EarthTribe health and safety
future climate.

Rev. MLK ReSync

“power without love is
reckless
and abusive,
and love without power is
sentimental
and anemic.
Power at its best is
love implementing the demands
of justice,
and justice at its best is
power
correcting everything that stands
against love.”

Win/Lose power
without win/win love is
lose/lose reckless
and abusive,

And win/win love
without win/win power is
sentimental
and anemic.

Power
at our best is
love cooperatively implementing
win/win healing justice,

And EarthJustice
at our healthiest
and best is
power
win/win correcting everything
that stands win/lose against
multiculturing love.

BoneDeep Lonely

Imprisoning textures
and routine lectures
in loneliness,

“your own fault”
“not Other’s loss”

blame
shame
dipolar co-arising

Loneliness effacing
cognitive/affective reason
and denying access
to more social future seasons

Including primal memories
of self-appreciation
self-sufficiency
communication resource-fullness,

And yet,
and yet,

Beneath such reasonable busyness,
even when I can sustain
opulent MeWe identity,

Even so,
even so,

EgoWe remains curiously distinct,
courageously Not Other,

Embracing
peak biosystemic health,
abstractly known
falls short of panentheistic lust
specifically touched
sensory
and sacredly sexual
mystery

Mysterious loneliness sees,
smells,
hears,
tastes,
appreciates
deeply depreciates
absence of fully embodied
love touches
of verbal sound,
of nonverbal skin
hair
fingers
toes
and other shyer shows.

Loneliness knows opulent warm textures
and peak sensory experiences

Efface more theoretical reasons
win/win
for co-empathic healthy seasons

Of nurturing resonant,
full-embodied resilient,
Self/Other recombinant
transubstantiating
panentheistic full-color wealth,

PolyPathic
PolyPhonic
PolyCultural
not yet climate loneliness

Including multicultural SelfAppreciation
BioOrganic SelfSufficiency
CoOperative resource-fullness.

Profound BiCameral Empathy

Inclusion
births Integrity,

As Equality
bows to Equity,

As Acceptance
longs, yet, for Appreciation,

As Sympathy
hopes for Empathy,

As being Autonomous
moves toward becoming
profoundly Democratic,

As multicultural Awareness
embraces warm Inclusion…

UnReachable Dreams

Sometimes Earth’s peace dreams
feel unreachable,
ever,
for anyone,

Including our unhealthy enemies
and aggressive aliens
and militarized terrorists
and anxious sociopaths
and despairing criminals
and miscellaneous Others

LeftBrain wounded
patriarchal-capitalist nervous
monoculturing heartless minds
of unwoke unconsciousness,
like my own

Mundanely unaware
of how ticked off we are
about giving up
on our unreachable dream

Reclaiming EarthTribe’s indigenous
panentheistic empowered
enlightening calm
inviting kindness.

Endlessly Speaking Out

ReGeneratively nonspanking speaking,
co-empathic

win/win communication systems

Are also non-violent communication networks
rooted in bicameral

Regeneratively deep listening

Of universal sacred health

ComPetitions for DisRegard

Am I unhealthy and unsafe oppressed,
suppressed,
repressed,
depressed?

Not really all that:
competitively impressive,
first through last impression
newsworthy,
enticingly marketable,
profitably commercial,
slickly corporate,
predatively intelligent

More camouflaged
unnoticed and undefined
unrefined
and, frankly, perhaps unstable
because of my environmental circumstances?
as liberal lovers
would have failing to ego-thrive anthrosupremacists
monoculturally privileged
and multiculturally misunderstood
underprivileged
shunned
and Othered

And/Or

Am I health/safety oppressed
because of my personal
bad ecopolitical choices?
like having unprotected sex
instead of going to the mall,

Not really reflecting on
wider and deeper context
like True Faith
and Healthy Happiness
monotheistically delivered
monopolistically endowed
StraightWhiteMale privileged
monoculturing LeftBrain transcendent
AnthroDivine judgment
falling shy
of unconditional regard

As win/lose divinely inspired Capital investments
support PatriarchalGod’s purely patriotic hierarchy
not-so-blindly selecting
who deserves Restorative Win/Win Justice
second
and third
and fourth chances

And who should not
escape Lose/Lose Retributive Dissociation
(repression, suppression, oppression, depression)

A social sympathy so thinly simpering
judicial powers are too comfortably scampering
to throw away personal freedom keys
with polarized dispassionate Disdain

Icing on Earth’s soggy cake
for feeding climate rabid
polarizing
angry
traumatized
lose/lose anthro-victims,
producers and consumers of Othering.

To get out from under-cussed non-classedness,
must I truly choose
between circumstantial ecological Voices
for resonant healthcare,
Or personal theological-felt internal Choices
for resilient wealthshare?

Do natural
polycultural healthcare systems
not co-arise
egowealthy green EarthPeace
spiritual co-investments?

So yes,
I guess,
answers to my oppressed prayers
by our liberal lover circumstances
and my conservational personal
integrating/desecrating
either Saint
or Sinner Choices

Do LeftBrain ignore
Both systemic conserving circumstances
And internal liberating intuitions

RightBrain questioning
interdependently unrecognized
NonVoices.

Witnessing at the Mall

I’m at the mall
waiting for my new lenses
to find their inside home
in my old frames,

Hopefully
not like new wine
in old
opaque
outside skins.

I try to engage
with an anthro-war story,
“The Invisible Woman”

Feeling myself silently camouflaged
in a sedate sitting area
sparsely inhabited only by my eyes
searching
and ears
spying

Listening for what invisible witnesses
hear
and empathically feel

“In wartime,
trusting the wrong person
can prove fatal.”

How much safer is trust
in peace time?
anthro-dominated
industriously capitalized.

Does living Earth
even feel like peace time?

Or Business As Usual
domestic abuse,
neglect,
silent, but not really nonviolent,
atrophy?

Degenerating entropy?
of a human child’s boundless curiosity,
enthusiastic health,
win/win wellbeing
luminosity.

“Virginia…
will do everything in her power
to avenge the brave people
she lost.”

Is the only important difference
between brave patriotic people
and innocent victims of autocracy
a sacred v secular division
between anxious war
sacredly declared
and every shopping day
peace deal making
between secularized
competing consumer diplomats

Perpetually undeclaring
rights of conscientious
personal bodies
to remain innocent
of ballistic
nihilistic
trauma producing
and stress consuming intent.

Is hero-worship the only moral distinction
between society’s righteous reactionary revenge
and personal power’s need,
want,
self-righteous entitled greed
to avenge?

“Virginia knows,
now more than ever,
that failure is not an option.”

A lot of pressure
stress
fear
anger
internal oppression
when mortality
and disempowering defeat
and disabling wounds
physical and mental,
natural and spiritual,
are not an option

When power is a weapon
wielded over OtherTribes
and cannot be a tool
kindly and carefully offered
without Othering.

Like seeing
with win/win restorative lenses
in old win/lose traumatized
Business As Usual
anthrosupremacist frames

For spying how exhausted I am
by silently witnessing
uncivil
anthro-war stories.
