Peace Not Mentioned

I was listening to our Commissioner
of Economic and Community Development
speak of how happy she is
our State and Federal tax revenues
now subsidize two,
possibly even three, submarines
per year
rather than the mere one per year
of the bad old unemployment days.

Her enthusiasm
continued over growth in military manufacturing
of fission and ballistic pathological outcomes
like huge hauling helicopter contracts

And all types of war mongering
and war supportive
nurturing assets,
arms racist buildups
providing three thousand new jobs
in Connecticut.

Admittedly jobs at perpetual risk
of costing three hundred thousand or more
loss of lives
of limbs
loss of organic livelihood networks
for restoring therapeutic multicultural health,

Loss of trees
and plants,
Loss of healthy soil
and water
and air.

This potential liability side
she did not mention
nor was it clear,
from tone and rhythms
of BusinessAsUsual voice
if she could even see
and hear such cooperative economic dissonance
with infusing love
of public health service reality.

She did not mention
any growth in natural LEED construction
for affordably resilient community housing.

She certainly omitted growth
of community college training
for natural built construction
of and by,
for and with,
cooperative self-help empowerment
builders becoming proud co-housing
nature-spirit goodfaith residents
growing shared organic
community developing
gardens.

She did not mention
thousands of new jobs opening up
to build bicycle lanes,
woodchip and bark trails
connecting GREEN EcoSchools
to goodfaith communit centers
perennial gardens
grazing greens
cooperative Commons
permaculture designed municipal parks
hosting outdoor classes
connecting
PositivEnergy CoOperatively Owned Democracy
incoming investment
for restoring climate therapeutic
Continuous Quality Improvement
public and private
secular and sacred
healthy wealth outcomes.

I suppose because growth in these sectors
is not newsworthy in Connecticut;
These cooperatively-owned differences
between mere public service non-profit sectors
and public nutritional empowerment models
toward WinWin ecopolitically fusing health-wealth outcomes

Replacing all those unnecessary
loud and stinky
helicopters
and ballistic-disempowering submarines.

The happier her competitive WinLose bubble glowed
as she enthused on and on
about manufactured growth
the sadder I became
about her ballistically manufactured tumor,
her absence of WinWin health service humor.
