Here Comes This Time

There comes a time
when partisan
and pious positions
are set not aside
but explicitly within
both/and dialogue frames
evolve and revolve
private principles
and public EarthJust policies
for healthcare practice
meditation
medication
consciousness
conscientiousness
compassion
passion stories
redemptively co-invested
cooperative journeys
re-ligioning

There comes a multicultural space
re-connecting who Red Republicans hate diseased the least
with what Green Democrats healthily love the most.

There comes our climatic time
and sacred space
when all EarthTribes must take
and retake
and remake integrally healing opportunities
that feel neither capitalistically safe,
nor competitively win/lose
ZeroSum strategic,
nor popular for defending straight white male
anthroprivileged leftbrain dominance,

But, we must invite each other
with humbling gratitude
positive attitude
into changing international co-relational
co-investing space

Because bicameral consciousness
tells and spells us
this is contextually balancing
universal left Yang
and unitarian right Yintegrity.

There comes our climaxing
regenerative space
unpositioned
nonpartisan place
for synergetically cooperative
ecological
theological both/and might
power and light,
polyculturally/multiculturally
meta-ecopolitically bright.

“There comes a time
when one must take
the [nonviolently compassionate trans]position
that is neither safe
nor [partisan apartheid] political
nor popular,
but he [sic, for nonviolent humanity]
must do it because conscience
tells him [us] it is right”
Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

And righteously beautiful,
EarthHealth and Safety
polyvagally
polypathically
polymathically
polyculturally
polynomially
multiculturally elegant.

Last Apt Rapt Presence

An apt present empowers
as an unanticipated
unearned warning
enlightens apt
rapt presence,

Delighted with discovering,
perhaps rediscovering?
what I would never have been wise enough
to look up for
nor hunt down.

Timing is everywhere,
every when
every what
every why
every how;
and merely some thing
somehow?

Nature trained
sensory engrained
spirit brained

Transforming change in appearance
forms strange
grotesquely competitive
transmogrified monocultures

Transubstantiating change of inside substance
elements as invisible as unpresented polyculturing presents
not yet
not still
not actively accessible to sensory reception,

Unformed except for past internal images
reimagined,
rememories
not yet memed

By secularizing sacred social senses
nonsenses
unsenses
resenses
presensing

Apt presents empower
as unlearned warnings enlighten
coincidentally apt
presence enrapt.

Love Us

When the StraightWhite Patriarchal President
sent out his Praise and Thanks Message
“We love you”
to those who would cathartically enjoy beheading
VicePresident St. Peter’s Pence
hates homophobic St. Paul,

This felt like too much tolerating
an unconstitutional intolerable
absence of basic civil respect,

Inspired by a left-brain dominant
bottom-line economic
and politically fascist preference
for direct militant vengeful
Action

Over endless parliamentary procedurally deadly debate
about who is rightfully in SuperCharged White
Might is Right
supreme patriarchal power.

How does this same Valentine Iconic message sound
directed toward the same Insurgency of Untouchables
when issued by Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr’s ghost
teacher and activist healer
through non-violent communication
only

Perhaps another instance of compassion’s word choices
leading to theologically unreasonable GoldenRule positions
tolerating intolerable
Western Corporate Patriarchal Aggressors,
BusinessAsUsual
rapists of MotherEarth
and other drunken sensory diversions,
depressions,
bipolar oppressions,
chronic stressed out cognitive
v. affective non-verbal dominantly
monoculturally miseducated
lack of true wealth is health
enculturation

What happens if “We Love You”
speaks from brown-skinned Obama Oval Office
to these same We Are Save the Steal Here/Now Messiahs
impassioned insurgents of Intolerable Violence
speaking WhitePower against all Other
and acting outwardly
from our inside fragile Strength!
(in klanish interdependent numbers)

Then what would you,
and what might they
have intolerably concluded
about the wisdom of shunning
long-term left-brain violent
intolerant survivalist ZeroSum
SeizeTheDay behavior,
take no hostages,
or maybe one or two…

Before right-brain
ecofeminist self/other EarthMother
and SacredSource
speaks up like Thunder
and ends with pathological climate Winds
of intolerable fires,
hurricanes,
flooding waves of untouchable thirst
and intolerable starvation,
homelessness and deprivation
of Earth’s Here/Now great
not quite so White privileged
grandchildren

Living together through silent natural springs
of spiritual acceptance,
active empathic “I Love Us”
rather than mere sympathy for your loss
“We Love You”
(even you useless weak losers).

Non-verbally
non-violently pro-active sacred curiosity,
interdependent faithfulness
courage to trust in cooperative integrity,
to compassionately communicate
Win/Win Messages to heartlessly violent
Win/Lose UnTouchables.

All that said
and set Prince Valiantly aside,

“You are doing your patriotic duty
to stop this steal
back to a healthier cooperative solidarity
in uniting EarthDemocratic Trust”

To swim back against evolution’s regenerative
natural/spiritual stream of healthy eco-political consciousness

Co-empathic with all love relationships
once aspiring to cooperatively become
a healthier sacred egalitarian
economic and politically active
(yet not empire-building reactive)
green communion.

Healthy democratic LoveMessages
invite more of a compassionate response

Win/Win thriving communion
of ecosystemically healthy communities
for well-being EarthUnity,
healthy prosperity
of all co-empathic non-predators,
at least not Here
and not RightWing
WestWing
Now

This overpowering “patriotic duty”
to think and feel intolerable
untouchable misunderstanding
of long-term ecofeminist political win/win
nonviolent communication analysis

Of healthcare regenerative memories
of a nation,
a planet,
a person

A few of whom re-emerge from StraightWhite patriarchal
miseducational lack of organic holistic healthy resilient
systems

Education that Enlightens
and invites empowering civics education discussion circles
which might have better served 43 co-dependent Senators

In a recent full-Southern purifying sweep
still hoping for a Revival
of perpetual disunion,
self-Righteous intolerance,
untouchable fear
of white-skinned eco-political Failure
to polyculturally
healthy Thrive

Throughout this polyglot
of Love You messages;
useful to whom
for what empowering/enlightening
disempowering/unenlightened
climatic end?

Singing With Our EarthDay Choir

The Assembly fills
with naturally optimistic,

Rome v Home

It is not necessarily established as True
that all capitalist
and patriarchal red roads
lead back to EmpireBuilding Rome

Ancient Rome as original win/lose supremacist Home
unveils no more than an intuitive health preference
for global eco-political win/win consciousness
as both ecologically True progress
way to restore win/win home
and Beauty’s economic co-redeeming GreenWealth
of peaceful bull-curved
syncopating bicameral heart-beat
within healthy win/win process home

In patriarchal survivalist competing climax
and in matriarchal thrivalist cooperative rest
and mostly in-between
with some middle mediating multicultural class
and polycultural healthy sass,
impassioned compassionate
ego/eco-nonviolent
win/win ecopolitically co-impassioned conversations,
history enculturing intelligent process
depicting depolarizing both/and
healthy progressive red through green
democracy roads
lead to EarthMother Home

In local communities
with cooperatively mentored hands
on both up and down hill
thrive and survive bilateral pulses,
best day ecological green commitments
and worst red days of egocentric challenges

Inviting further journeys back
through cooperative communication histories
concerning transubstantiated ecopolitical Trust
that all cooperative
and ecofeminist creolizing tidal rivers
ebb and swell
re-connecting secular/sacred
healthy seasoned HomeGrown

Is cooperative

through all co-invested and matriarchally creolizing seasons

enlightening transparent red historic
inside hoarding empirically specialized
military-industrialized vulnerable powers

Wondering Thoughts

I wonder if heuristic,
tentative thoughts,
and ambiguous,
nebulous feelings,
coalesce, sometimes
into resonant knowing

In a personal
powerful
illuminating way
resilient hope of sharing
this round living Earth
with robust wildness
leaking out in between
relentlessly speaking words,
autobiographical lessons
never native learned

Thereby opening a passion
for searching communioned sacred doors
toward further nuance,

Recreating what we have lived to know,
to timelessly
yet ambiguously appreciate,
celebrate in awe
of this wilderness
we have always known
but could not, before,
articulate alone.

Nature’s living roundness
of healthy, robust Earth
grows never merely alone

Celebrating
yet challenging
peaceful and leisurely integrity,
lovely
perfect ease
of right felt
strong ecstatic left mindedness
under controlled

Like Mother
and newly freed newborn
struggling through wild co-attachment.

Like multicolored bands
of a bowed rainbow
assembling
and recomposing each miraculously unveiling other
in perfectly predictable progressive laws
of domesticated
conserving order,

Transculturing lucent symmetry
empowering sustained non-violent light
resplendently full of wilding
wondrous mystery

Remembered images
of fading
bewildering
wildly tentative thoughts,
and ambiguous,
nebulous feeling
wilderness, sometimes
recreative knowing
this from which
we derive
arrive
strive
more consciously alive.

Summer Saturday

On a Michigan farmer Saturday
in August,
anticipating tomorrow’s evangelical Sabbath,

When late summer vacations
invoked pre-sacred house cleanings
more unusually light,

Heading outside after lunch
into this spectacularly breezy
blue billowing
discontinuously cumulus cloudy
in-between radiant sky blue
infinite wonder

Into this awesomely long leisurely afternoon
becoming one of those special kids
sent out to rediscover solitary play
while Mom clears HER kitchen
to fill our kitchen
with impossible fragrance
of Sunday dinner rhubarb pie
or fresh strawberry shortcake,
whipping vanilla or banana cream
while boiling sweet yellow corn,
baking mac and ancient cheddar cheese
for this evening’s pre-dusk compline dinner.

On this first summer celebrating Saturday
of low humidity
and temperatures predicting September 70s

Out past our red barn
and past its barnyard lily pond
and into golden stubbled hay fields,
sheared sexy contoured face
of my temporarily uncloseted gay imaginings
hoping for YangGod’s sexiest face
smiling in sabbath of return

Continuing on
to private green cool woodland
to nakedly climb a favorite tree
skin to naked bark,
full-bodied embrace
of this fabulous shared EarthLife
transparent
and open
and breezy free with God’s inclusive hope.

Out to play
and pray
this day
and month
and vacation
and re-creation
will never end

Or end,
if time must continue,
in moonlit radiant peace,
night dreams
of asking into perfect Sabbath.

Local Living Matters

I hear things right side down
and bottom left side up
as I get older
so consider the source.

Anyway,
I hear Colchester Connecticut Democrats,
and some cross-registering Republicans,
want to establish
a multicultural health commission
concerned about military
and local police mercenaries
feeling discriminated against,
picked on,
unloved,
left out,
under-valued,
ignored,
neglected,
abused,
shot at.

T Rocko is concerned
such a vast investment
in multicultural respect,
solidarity of resonance,
integrity of long-term resiience
through commitment to public dialogue
rather than contentious debate,
could only be justified
with quantitative data

Adding up how much
anti-militarism
and anti-police prejudice
exists
and costs
in Colchester.

In this political
and economic moment
of social cooperative distancing,
dissociation,
scape-goating,
rabid polarization,
toxic partisanship

We need a baseline,
says he,
of mutual disregard,
to measure regenerative progress
and/or degenerative retrenchment
from community integral investments
in health remediation,
inclusive wealth
for future cooperative governing generations.

Rudko,
self-appointed sole guardian
of our public investment purse,
responds,

Supporters of Armed Lives Matter
are “making a generalization…
not based on facts”
that silence means discontent,
speaks echo-chamberly
of feeling an unhealthy
lack of mutually fulfilling safety

Too risky
for speaking up transparently
to listen vulnerably
to all cooperative opportunity “Other”
and “Alien”
and “Immigrant”
And especially Not Straight Male Dominant
voices,
narratives,
aggressive predation stories
of relentless win/lose debate
rather than cooperative win/win dialogue
with social and multicultural intelligence.

Revolutionary Para-Dime Differences

A difference between compassion and sympathy,

between co-empathic passion
and unilateral YangPatriarchal-empathic,
ego-empowering intent,

Compassion matures passion FOR
to shared passion WITH.

This same emergent fluidity
cannot be said of sympathy
for suffering of Other,
who remains another dissociated Other

Exempted from democratic inclusion
in further considerations
of constitutionally appropriate applications
of Golden Rules
to those who remain
in darker xenophobic shadows
more appropriate for retributive reaction
than restoration to peaceful justice response.

This same contrast and compare
may also apply to political empowerment
and more of the same
competitive economic investment,

to global enlightenment
and more localized, and often nationalized, pockets
of self-enrichment,

to recreative cooperative love
and to recreational competitive lust

Now that some of us
revolutionaries and evangelists
of the ecological 1960s
have been given this great green gift
of old age wisdom,
what on Earth
shall we choose to do with
such awesomely sacred/secular
private/public sectoral nonpartisan
WisdomCircle responsibility?

Settle for fading sympathy,
loss of sensory health awareness,
physical consciousness?

Or, Reconsider ways to optimize compassion,
compassionate communication,

non-violently heard
and green revolutionary 20/20 revisioned,

Co-passionate DNA/RNA EarthTribes
currently in living residential relationships
growing hotly combative climates
of anthrocentric salvific empathy,

Seeking more cool green Wisdom Circles
of democratic sacred energy discernment

of ecosystemic health-sensory consciousness

How is universal EarthWealth

yet often felt the same

When I Was Eight

I owned a warm breezed first Spring day
in radiantly refulgent sun
between billowed cumulative clouds
white as sailing sheets
on our vibrating
shaking and tugging cotton clothesline
swaying multi-colored tops
and sun bleached blue jean bottoms.

Like God,
I looked curiously
benignly
warmly down

As industrious ants
with apparently urgent missions
I would never learn how to assign
chewed and sniffed their singular ways
through a forest of shading grass
over dappled shadow soil

Vibrant blades of pointed grass
as tall as trees to ambitious worker ants
sometimes militaristic
but now peacefully recovering
discovering thawed warm roots
of cooperative deep dark Earth.

I could not own a wealthier Spring day
except just now,
at sixes with seven,
often remembering this polished day
and night dreamed moment
beside breeze blown white sailing ships
of sun-scent cotton state
breathing in under first fresh cut lawn
to notice how wee ants live
side-by-side
refurbishing
rubbing up against and with
warm lamped memories

Recreating paths
by imaginatively embodying them
yet again

This first-owned warm Spring breeze
of wistful
divine memory.
