Today Is Different

Today is assiduously
religiously different,
as I review our local RiverEast News.

Every week
Mike Thompson writes a solid Editorial
in a compelling voice.
I expect to only add
my hearty sacred
happy secular “Amen!”

Our nearly fearless Editor and Chief
calls for political “ACCOUNTABILITY!”
like so many others on bipolar Left through Right,

And those still hanging on
with battered nails
to quickly fading dipolar
in-between HAVE-NOT
anthrocultured primacy race
and HAVE
cash class
co-empathic consciousness
that renters and owners need each other
like borrowers and banks
yet feel as competitively apart
as victims and predators,
droning prey and patriarchal colonizers

Insurrectionists,
nihilistic HAVE-NOT anarchists
military industrialized
invade our sacred capitalistic space,
so now, I read,
“there needs to be
accountability.”

I do not disagree, BUT…
AND would you not agree
our shared future will be healthier,
and co-investing wealthier,
if predators claim their own responsibility
for exceeding civil and civic
democratically cooperative authority
through more slow-grown discernments

Rather than passionate placards
preferring hot
and sometimes armed
debate
drama
extraction
capture
imprisonment
enslavement
debacle
bacchanalia,
angry selfie Theater

Fueled by manufactured Bud
more than ancient cannabis buds.

Our angry Editor
lashes nationalistic Republicans out of town,
especially the transcendently unEarthly
Vice President Pence,
praying for “healing” and “unity,”
and not even close enough
for government work
invoking a sacred benediction
through end of term ACCOUNTABILITY!
of blind justice,
thus retributively more equitable
punishing non-mercy
served against irresponsible
angry words
and violently desecrating actions.

Interesting,
I also hear President Biden
passionately praying for “healing” and “unity”
Unity
Unity,
and more silent about punishing justice
held up to public scrutiny
of LeftBrain dominant, Accountability–
not so much RightBrain felt prominent,
CoResponsibility.

Retributive justice of Accountability
is for punishing
the autonomously guilty.

Restorative justice of CoResponsive
Responsibility
is for healing,
and resiliently lasting,
peaceful,
healthy interdependent unity

By divesting of autonomously unEarth-responsive
economic anthrocentric capital gains
and politically privileged responsibility
of patriarchal
capitalistic
military-industrialized
corporate empowered monoculturing supremacy,
anthro-irresponsible intent.

Why is it,
Mr. Editor,
I wonder wander
as I moondrift flow along,

Why is it more important
or realistic
or essential to punish
before moving on to heal:
to set apart and imprison,
to judge
and shame and blame,
before reconsidering unity
through faithful
multicultural dialogue?

This military-first preference
seems to reflect Chief RedCommander
inciting rhetoric
echoing Hitler’s strengths
of hate and violence
and deadening threat
of powerful justice
developing full-throttle
exclusively through our patriotic
overpowering position
of autocratic STRENGTH!

To hold the Alien EcOther
revengefully Accountable.

Actually,
as I dimly recall
my own unfortunate experiences with punishment
and healing warmth restoring healthier wealth
of personal political empowering responsibility,
nonviolent communication
includes inviting proactive practice
of compassionate therapy
through restorative justice,
pursuing multicultural pace
of EarthPeace,

More polytheistically matriarchal
than monoculturally
LeftBrain soulless solely Accountable
for missing opposite experience opportunities
more typically therapeutic
and conveniently,
even co-responsibly,
CoOperative Truths
building healthy democratic Trust.

I’m thinking I learn more powerfully
not from Strength, but uncapitalized weakness,
fluidity,
both/and nuance,
empowering eco-political responsibility
and disempowering ego-individual accountability,
publicized felony revenge
and misdemeanor scorn

Distract from wider experience
deeper Light
by exploring my own disconnected woundedness
evolving lonely feelings of win/lose mortal brokenness

Past failures in responsive civil commitment
to cooperatively hold
and cherish democratic sacred space
at home,
reading the weekly paper,
and WholeEarth abroad,

Rather than my boldest debates
to strongly compete in high risk
armed and violent communication confrontations,

Alarming punitive messages
using win/lose weapons of strong obfuscation,
which are irresponsible,
demanding that EcOthers be held apartheid Accountable
for lack of healthy healing,
cooperative unity,
co-governing skills for building
resiliently healing
trust-struggling
ongoing inclusive dialogue
relationships,

Religiously essential
to any healthy democratic
natural and/or spiritual experience,
constitutional
and/or familial,
anthro-centric
and/or eco-systemic health restoring,
globally political
and/or personal cooperative economics
of ecofeminist
green newLeft/ancientRight deal
co-responsible
resilient
and polypathically resonant
Ego/Earth co-investment

In a different
universally healing
unitarian tomorrow.
