Investigative Interview

When asked what skill sets
I hoped to bring
for nurturing our local ecology of justice,
I was not prepared.

But,
one of two internal wisdom projects,
still in process,
I’m ego-working on,
eco-role playing with,
is non-violent communication,
so I mentioned that.

Young,
poised and elegant,
soft-spoken yet articulate
and straightforward
and with integrity of authentic curiosity,
She asked me

“What do you mean
by non-violent communication skills?
Does that mean you invite,
rather than demand, responses
by mentoring them
while WinWin listening
then Both/And speaking
then WinWin listening again?”

“Or are you still working
on healing OldSchool communication issues,
dominating Western Left
by diminishing ElderEastern Right?”

“Are you still working on non-violently violating people
with your body aggressive hands
and patriarchally mendacious voice
and homophobic and xenophobic
marching against green ecofeminist sacred feet
and LeftBrain rabid totalitarian deductive-reductive dominance
and Trumpian: I’m just a bad bully boy
with a redblooded colonizing heart
testosterone twittering?”

I wasn’t expecting that line of questioning either.
But I found it really interesting
that a freckled nose
brown-skinned
young and beautiful,
inside and outside
ego and eco-core centered investigative interviewer
would need to ask that
of a white U.S. male
at this critical moment
of last non-violent hope
breathlessly waiting
for a WinWin communicated response
inviting cooperative ego/ecological polypathic climates
reversing pathological monoculturing decades
of business as competing WinLose usual

Now post-millennially reborn
green inviting integrity
of PositivEnergy Democracy
non-violently inviting
restorations of multicultural EarthJustice

SpaceTime co-arising
further EgoLeft-EcoSacredRight
ripe for ZeroZone theological healing.

But,
that’s the other skill set
I’m sacred ecological
RightBrain STEAM green
writing with–
much too revolutionary
for any first time
PositivEnergy impression.

Maybe we could go there
next 2020 Revolutionary time.
