DoubleBinding Riddles

When is physical restraint equipment
also dirty laundry?

When your daughter vomits
all over her school bus transport harness,

When she could have more safely,
and less expensively, traveled
in a six-seat van
with her contenting seat belt on

Rather than shackled to her seat
and unshackled into her school

Where all unharnessed big girls and boys
hierarchically go
to not air their dirty laundry.

Can’t Make You Stalk Me

Turn up the lights
Fold up the bed
Turn up those voices
outside my head
Lay out for me
Feed me with lies
Just hold me up, your patron saint
Do matronize me

‘Cause I can’t make you stalk me
if you won’t
You can’t make your mind think something
it don’t
Here in my light,
in these early hours
I will pick up my heart
and not feel your power
But I can’t, no I won’t
‘Cause I can’t make you stalk me,
when you don’t.

I’ll freeze my eyes,
then you won’t see
The heart you don’t feel
when you’re not holding me
Evening will come
and you’ll do what’s wrong
Just give me till then
to give up this song
And you could give up our wrong

‘Cause I can’t make you love us
if you won’t
You can’t make your mind feel something
it don’t
Here in our light,
in these late hours
I will pick up my heart
and I’ll feel our power
But I can’t, no I can’t
‘Cause I can’t make you stalk peace,
when you don’t.

 

With apologies to Allen Shamblin and Michael Reid who cooperatively wrote one of my favorite songs.

Problems with Number 45

Donald John!

Didn’t your mother teach you?
We do not aim our scissors
at our allies
when they ask us
to share our dangerously cutting weapons.

We also do not run over our best customers.
When we play more nicely with the playground bullies
than with our cooperative allies.
then we soon have no reliable friends
and more empowered predators.
But,
that’s not what they paid us
in passing grades
to do and say
when I went to real property
Predation and Commodification School.
Donald John!

Didn’t your daddy teach you
Choose your positive and resilient Vocational Teachers
as health wealthy wise
as available
at the lowest possible price?

Preaching how to apply:
Win for Planet Earth
Win for all polyculturing Plants
and Win for growing healthy People
polypathic
ego/eco-therapeutic
triple bottom-line
sacred principles of Golden CoOperative Rule?

That doesn’t sound, or even smell, much like him.
Maybe.
We’ll have to see, won’t we?
If so, probably one of his adult ADHD elevator speeches
and my hands were grabbing
for other busyness acquisitions.
Donald John!

Didn’t your parents teach you
This is the moment
more attentive minds
might gratefully ask
why I ask?
What did you ask again?
I’m not sure if I was hearing
an inappropriate ecofeminist question.

When Federal Abuse Trumps State Health Policy

When is a practice
of separating unprivileged families
not a policy?

When a healthy democratic bicameral nation
never would
nor should
nor could
approve any such policy

Clearly
transparently the opposite of
health and happiness
equity and cooperative ecopolitical
basic human dignity
and family values
intent.

When is an ad hoc administrative despotic practice
not also a privileged fascist attack
on integrity of social health
to sustain mendacity of private wealth
as long as climate pathologically possible.

What is the opposite of multicultural rapture
love
health
happiness
trust
democracy
family-oriented health care
giving and receiving policies
procedures
practices?

Regardless of party affiliation
and independent thinking and feeling,
It still remains orthodox
that democracies
must be liberal with love
and health restoring justice

And stingy,
conservative with anger
fear
hate
terror
bullying anti-family
anti-unprivileged pathologies,
vengeful and mendacious injustice
deprivation
neglect
separating what God has conjoined
abuse of mortal sovereignty.

If a practice is not healthy enough
for privileged you
and your privileged kids,
then it is worthy of a
child abuse and neglect public policy
against it.

Smashed Turkey YamJam

My parenting totem
was the Hawk
of bicamerally perfect egocentric vision
usually greeted by a loud Yang squawk
and vigorous walk
in the other wrong direction.

My WiseElder totem
is the Turkey,
CoMessiah of CoRedemptive Dying
as notnot loving EarthTribe’s future lives.

At eight,
my totem was muse Dragonfly,
greeting and bowing
to Eastern red sky dawns,
mysterious wordless delight.

Yet also warning me,
to get to Hawk yang strength
on into Turkey WiseElder resilient years
I must bear through
mym early adulthood Bear totem,
adolescent polypathic dirges
of synergetic introspection,
lust for perenially nutritious Hibernation Dreams
of eremetic Earth
as Paradise
now climatically
and critically
and pathologically overpopulating Lost,
awaiting total colonization of spring
as AmericaFirst Welfare Found.

Although
these multicultures and DNA tinctures,
scents and colors,
from Eastern DragonFly
through Southern Bear
through Western Hawk
through North American Turkey
were not inter-relationally accessible
until I learned
to translate polypathic Turkey
into polyphonic fractaled
perennially recycled
ego healthy ecowealth.

Turkeys
prefer resilient WiseElder years
and bearing hawk regimes
cooperatively thriving.

To sustain Dragonfly endurance
through WinLose competitions
Business as not-WinWin Usual.

Turkeys
appreciate sleeping through roosting nights
without WinLose nightmarish interruptions.

Turkeys
cannot tolerate
LoserEgo against Loser EcoPolitics
because such lack of self and other esteem
breeds darkish NegativEnergy climates
of pathology.

Turkeys
link their WiseElder ego-internal loops
and caustic lumps
with their EcoNatural external climates
and improvising clumps.

WiseElder Turkeys
and Hawks
and Bears
and muse-dreaming DragonFlies
bear through nuturing Energy Democracies,
co-operative restorations Turkey-invested
fully grateful
for mythic GoldenRule
ecopolitical WinWin
co-relational structures.

WiseElder Turkeys
LeftBrain polytheistically pray,
but never prey,
and beg
and full-flight non-violently demand
other WiseElder Turkeys
to EarthLove our WinWin way back
to reconnect Grazing Commons
where lies now our epic pathology mess.

Mature resilient Turkey multicultures,
with natural-spiritual nondual
inside-outside DNA assumptions
prefer to grow restorative multigenerational justice
with all nutritional positive energy Tribes
of and for Democratic Life
and no more plutocratic
AntiTurkey suffering death

And have the turkey nerve
to call this Commons Easter Rights
of cooperative WinWin SuperGodSun Might,
and Thanksgiving,
and InterDependent Turkey Day.

Turkeys
Left with Right
West with East
interdependent Yang with nondual empty Yin
Zero-WinWin summations
reweaving bilateral wu-wei memories
spiraling slow flow
like turkey gravy
made with goat’s milk
on steaming organic smashed yams.

My ultraviolet turkey gravy
has a lot to say
which might not be the case
after just this one bright day.

She sings in pro-life
spiraling colors,
She speaks to restore
health-wealthing odors.

My bilateral nondual turkey
holds up outside racing natures
to her inside harmonic spirits,
hoped for well-nurtured egocenter
gathering inside wellness EcoCentering Schools
of improvising WinWin acclimation support
without WinLose distractions.

She worships Father’s Sun
and Matriarchal HolySpirit Earth
nondual GodNatured EarthSoul
with interior SacredGaia AnimaMundi
spiraling co-arising Core
Greek with Latin
restorative resonant orthodoxy
of nondual NatureSpirits CoArising
to breathe in ultra-violet North,
breathing out toward where we all
DNA secular ecological economy
with RNA sacred light theology
politically began

Zero notnot CoRelationals,
PositivEnergy Democracy’s
original intent
of Wild BiLateral Turkishness.

Crippled America, But Growing Good

I was reading Trump’s Crippled America the other day…

I’m sorry to interrupt, but why?
Isn’t his Unreality Show more than taxing enough already?

Well, more than sufficient, actually,
but I was trying to figure out
what he believes a non-gimpy America
would look like.

Fascist scary, am I right?

Like a pilot
for yet another dystopian vampire series.
Anyway,
he keeps describing himself
as not only a rich man
but a nice man.

But not a crippled good man.

Right.
I’ve heard him declare some of his relatives are good.
And then there were the Nazis in Virginia,
also some good people there.
Just having a bad day
at the same time
in the same unfortunate little place
by coincidence,
but good people,
with democratically healthy intentions.

Probably reminds him of his Republican Party.

He says he is rich and nice;
but does not say he is good
or could become better,
or in any way ego crippled,
fractured by love
for innocence of intimate life
as gift.

I don’t suppose he’s just being coy.

I see Trump as coy
even less than Trump as nice.
He all but uses the word “bully”
describing how he ended up in military school,
where he also had unspecified issues.

Didn’t we call those reform schools
back in the day
of childhood self-righteousness?

No, dear,
reform schools were supposed to be about education
to restore sanity.
Military school is about going the other insane direction,
polyunsaturated war-mongering and ballistic bully threats
against foreign property,
which, unfortunately, includes people
and their pets.

And livestock,
gardens and farms,
food and fiber
and spiritual philosophy.

Unworthy causes for erections
and elections
for some not so nice people.

Like un-reformed bullies?

Like over-fertilized monoculturing bullies
writing contracts out again Crippled America.

That doesn’t sound good.

Or nice.
Or even particularly rich
for that matter.

I wonder if too much money,
in an aggressively colonizing
capital-infested culture
leads to too much power
to do even more aggressive violence
against natural-spiritual riches
of Earth
and Her Heavenly ways and means,
cooperative design
and intelligent equi-lateral nutritional planning.

I wonder if rich WesternWhite men
who hope they are becoming more refined,
nicer bullies,
but won’t even pretend to be good,
are any more likely to become good healthy humans
than to pass through the crippled eye
of a discerning wu-wei needle.

Crippled eyes
to stand in solidarity
with the rest of us sinners
doing our best
to learn powers of love
over nice and rich bullying evil.

Restoring Peaceful Climates

Retribution and restoration
share a concern for justice as balance
of responsibility with authority.
But retribution is coercive
while restoration democratizes therapeutic cooperation,
invites grace and love and mercy
for oneself
as for others.

Retributive justice
pretends a violation of our multicultural Golden Rule
leaves no option but to set our WinWin potential aside
and move toward WinLose and LoseLose retaliation.

This sin of missed opportunities
to restore health between individuals,
between specialized economic and political interests,
between invested cultures,
between Earth’s collaterally operating species
between internal Left and Right hemispheres
as between Earth’s dualistic West
and nondual Eastern metaphysical hemispheres
degenerates into further cooperative-affective dissonance
rather than internal peace,
and further punishing competitions
in reaction to past fears and angers and terrors,
inquisitions and impositions of power from Above,
when regenerative restoration
calls for growing balancing powers from within
whom we indigenously could be
reweaving regenerative justice and peace.

Restoration is an invited exchange of therapeutic powers
where retribution ignores further abuse and neglect
and disempowerment
of both predators and prey.

If our Earth-manifest destiny
is to predatively colonize
until all land and water,
airwaves and energy for light and heat and cold
is privately governed and hoarded
by an overpopulated species
of Might Makes Right
always Trumps Golden Global Rules,
then we are a culture grown to expect retributive judgments
where restorative ego and ecotherapies
are more readily
and cooperatively
Self as originally part of Matriarchal Other
manifesting-mentoring cooperative WinWin destinies,
while that other
predative
colonizing
pirating
privatizing
secularizing
degenerative destiny
is just more oppressively fake bad judgment news.

We could rejoin Earth’s natural sacred grace,
restorative reforesting therapies
composed of Golden Global Peace and Justice,
gift economies of gratitude.

Retribution is a competitive choice
to pursue degenerating ecopolitical relationships
where WinWin restorative therapies
wait in the bicameral wings of consciousness
to promise regenerative peace with justice,
within internal landscapes
as externalized balancing climates,
economies of ecological power balance
through active restorative
redistributive
mutual gifting intent
of sacred gratitude
for Earth’s nurturing
nutritional investment
in natural-spiritual humane life,
cooperatively maturing ecopolities.
