New MLK Day Revolutions

I have heard almost nothing about New Year Resolutions
this pandemic year;

Although personal sound waves are filled
replete with incomplete invitations
to take better health care
of personal
and social
and economic
and democratic
and public
and green climate nonviolent communication
wealth optimization

As we move post-millennially
and relentlessly,
perhaps as inevitably
as any self-fulfilling NewYear resolute expectation,
standing win/win apart
from ambiguous anticipation thoughts
with anxious feelings,
foreboding fore-tidings,
Right/Left
affective/cognitive dissonance;
fading resonance.

I have,
in this last pre-MLK week,
noticed an upsurge in human striving voices
invoking dark,
globally embarrassing, humor
and gratitude
for President BullHorn
for straight white male persuading
large majorities of Earth’s citizens,
red and green and yellow and orange,
black and mostly white patriarchally privileged
LeftBrain violently red dominant
RightWing wounded and terrifying,

To NewYear discontinue an elitist direction
we don’t want to continue pursuing,
extracting without explicitly agreeing
to democratically forego our constitutional commitment
to a healthy resilient multicultural republic
both polyculturally healthy and safe
for now,
and for all foreseeable future regenerations.

Many 2020s new year roaring revolution voices
seem to assume liberal v conservative choices
are limited to:
If one is good
then the other is bad,
opposites;

Appositionally,
demonstrably,
comparatively,
even consensually,
recognized as not true to personal
politically co-invested democratic experience
when we are discussing liberally loving
healthy
cooperative communication
and conservatively co-investing
in globally resilient public health
and climate WholeEarth safety.

Liberal left wings
and conservation right winged,
and all of us who faithfully remain
middling muddling in-between,
resolve closer to consensually green healing
than viral and climatic punishing pandemics,
ego-inside and eco-outside
our bilaterally integral sensory bodies,

We are
and often are not
re-transitionally resolved
for personal health
and/or public ecopolitical safety
sacredly cooperative Vocations.

When I feel healthiest and safest,
in this another new year,
in this early decade of Roaring BullHorn 20s,
is when I step outside
to listen for voices
of disenfranchised trees,
scolding squirrels,
babbling brooks,
rippling rivers,
surfing seas,
light conversations
between blue sky and cirrus clouds,
rain on rocks and rolling thunder
anthems

Sung in response to my questions
about what is healthy liberal YangLight
and conservative YintegrityPower?

And what is more Trumpian
nationalist
elitist Republican
pathological would-be autocratic fascism,
worship of richly narcissistic wounded
persons of exorbitant interest,
punishing power,
uninformed dissonant delusions,

Where StraightWhiteMale privileged
capitalist corporate minds
have falsely advertised resilient
and resonant bicameral fortunes
toward nationalistic
militaristic extractive wealth,
not so much durably thriving health
and safety through defensive win/lose strategies
strong pro-active
non-connective
violent colonizing aggressions
for mutual lose/lose
predator/prey assured destruction.

Sometimes Earth’s January voices
seem to predict
and celebrate
full climaxing
resiliently thriving healthy wealth.

Sometimes they warn of wounded and broken
personal and public,
social and political
and economic monocultural
non-MLK celebratory pathology.

But,
most of this NewYear resolving time,
especially when I’m working on MLK-Era
Revolutionary Green Resolutions
for restoring Ego/Earth-balancing Justice,
and WholeEarth Multiculturing Peace,
these nature/spirit,
inside/outside,
ego/eco-voices ignore my quests for wise discernment
because egocentric questions,
provided by past memories and future imagination,
are unworthy of macro-ecosystemic attention.

If the only choice I offer is:
“Should I live in a toxic,
fossil-fuel burning condo
or in a toxic,
fuel-burning trailer park?”

Why would such ancient god and goddess voices
and smells,
sounds and senses,
respond to these unintended wounds
and win/lose competitive broken messes?

Asking for less than wisdom
to always resolve win/win
revolutionary green new era decades
inviting questions and resolutions
exploring
remembering future images
of liberally conserving celebrations.
