Preach From Experience

You could tell me your differences,
beat me down with distortions,
in-between fundamentally certain
of Either/Or
Yes or No
Stop or Go;
and never “and”

You also faithfully know sacred reasons
for secularized natural seasons.

You could whisper your silent discernments
in-between Both/And nuanced
curiously growing seasons
of sacred climate doubt

I could be heard and appreciated
beyond self-graced listening
for win/win mind is also spirit
is also health is also wealth
is also bicameral balancing options
for bi-curious co-empathic
communicating operations

For win/win longing nations
and tribes
and species to rebound from this precipice
thrusting forward further secularizing
decontextualizing
monopolistically monotheistic
Earth-desecrating AnthroSupremacy

SelfAppointed Sacred Rights
to play anthropocentric win/lose games
against co-passionate MotherNature’s HolyCene

Remains unhappy
with dogmatic rightwing Straight MonoTheistic Defensively
Patriarchal-Capitalist entitled White King’s English
for re-interpreting Her MiddleEastern eco-political narratives
and wisdom literature
and natural/spiritual
physical/mental nondualistic poetry

Monoculturally misappropriated
if not also sensed
internally sacred panentheistic

Promulgating polyculturally robust
creolizing values
not whatever transcendent hierarchical
colonizing disvalues
patriarchally privileged
monotheistic
misogynistically vengeful
extractively punishing demonic
dark lose/lose degenerative WuWay

The opposite of truly free
to healthy choose
Earth’s final sacred Revelation

Rather than stuck in dogmatic
God’s static never-changing word
Hell that burns in an eternal fire
of LeftBrain weaponed words

Yet, Earth will eventually Lose
capacity to support Win/Win juicy life
as we have outgrown Her

Yet, we need not hurry
trauma and win/lose stress
and environmental resource wars along,
distracted by inability to learn
global climate pandemic lessons

There is no resilient health care
for humans
without resonant wealth care
from nonhumans

Reclaimed a sacred WiseWoman
from her PostTraumatic Teacher
and PsychoDynamic Preacher
actively seeking EcoPolitical Win/Win Leaders

To re-member Whole Open EarthTribe’s sacred
historical experience
struggling with restoring
and restorying
entropic closed
secularized EarthScientist Demise

Yang’s LeftBrain privileged
monoculturing
lack of bicamerally balanced
health communicating
resiliently wealthy
post-traumatic win/win
curiously active LeftThought,
but not negatively reactive RightFelt,
bipartisan co-mediated experience

If I could teach you my differences,
sometimes beat down with distortions,
in-between fundamentally certain
of Either/Or Left
hopes also for Both/And Right co-passions

Yes and No
Stop and Go;
and almost never 0-sum
lack of panentheistic healing soul

As we also faithfully know
indigenously wise
sacred gifted reasons
for secularized
natural shifting seasons.

Together Will We Part

Cells work is play
to resiliently thrive
only in organic systems.

Individual yolked cells
each with her own ego-governor
survive healthy together
and divide tragically apart

More like symbiotic regenerations
of surfing cantilevers
than degenerations
outside predations
storming waves
recolonizing cancers.

Transgendering
transubstantiating
transitions can be both

Too hard on ego yolks
and too soft for ecobodies
become some One boundaried else
while too soon severing
into not yet Zero

Sacrificed for tomorrow’s
unconditional regard
organically in-between
One secular EgoZone
and not yet Zero sacred
systemic EarthTribe soul

Remembering past memories
mindful of mind-cell fullness
side by side solidarity
re-imaging severed cells

Crests of history’s
great transitioning wave
from individual hot burning stars
to seas of cold
dead
dry dust

Awaiting wetter rust
for light and power
to co-arise
more resilient lust

Inside crusts
of ego loving centers
and their living eco-kin
becoming back and forth,
together and apart
again

Enlightenment
and death,
empowering cantilevers
losing out to expatriating cancers

Co-invested
ego risks of past power
and eco loss of future opportunities

Individuating
systems for regeneration
and recycling seasons
of privation

Therapy
and trauma,
health
and pathology

Unconditional regard
and conditioned
hardening cells
of disregard

For innocent Othered cells
whose work is also play
to resiliently thrive

Only in organic systems
unconditionally regarding
this enlightened
empowering day

Swings of Yang bright light
empowering Yin’s eternal sway.

Rewarding Inclusion

I doubt it was a philosopher,
more likely an emperor,
but possibly both,
who first explored this sad relationship
between exclusion
and punishment,
colonialism
and repression.

I’ll bet it was a Taoist mother
afraid bad weather would smother
all hope of restoring future peace
who first engaged our glad elationship
between inclusion
and cooperative reward,
creolization
and multicultural
graceful impressions

This, our win/lose
zero-sum
retributive justice point

And yet also our win/win
nonzero-exponential
spiraling
revolving
restorative peace
counter-point

Balancing tipping points
toward cooperative polytheistic
polycultural possibilities,
secular and sacred,
for slow-growing resilient healthy seasons
and polyvagal
universal feelings
of neuro-sensory evolving
revolving safety.

Accidental exclusion
and intentional derision
of people with disabilities
win/lose dismay
disqualification
from LeftBrain
RightWing dominance

Together,
neglect and abuse
co-arise feelings of shame
self v other blame
punishing judgment
for being born
not LeftBrain
RightWing dominant enough
to earn our keep
in a commodified work force
neither enlightened playful
nor empowering peace-filled feelings

Industrially confined to slave
and prison
and asylum labor

PreIndustrially restoring wisdom
includes priority for inclusive
and incisive win/win intended
healing communication,
sustained healthy and safe
nurturing relationships,
growing multicultural
and ecopolitically rewarding trust.

Retributive justice
worships powers of royal affluence
while sacred restorying
of democratically inclusive peace
engages effluent co-powers

Of LeftBrain
RightHeart conserving
enlightened health
through resilient polycultural
anthro-wealth
of cooperative vocation

AND

For RightBrain

Sexual Situations

I was about to check out a new detective drama
and paused
however briefly
when I noticed a consumer warning
“Sexual Situations”

Which I find confusing.

Everyday
as long as I continue to wake up
however partially
I am not gender impartial

I awake into my
Sexual Situation

I live in a sexual body
with a neuro-sensory communicating
communing pheromonic mind
filled with multigenerational memories
and multicultural images

Whether conscious or not,
if you can read
and understand this,
and even if you couldn’t,
you too live
in a sexual situation
among a sexual species.

So, I’m wondering
when will I read a consumer warning
“No Sexual Situations”

No drama

No detective work
or play

No plot

No sensory interest

Better off
to go take a wild
wet
warm
dreamy
creamy nap.

To A Superior Judge

I could not do what you are mandated to do
every day on society’s justice bench,
weighing retributive justice
against restorative healing.

I cannot look at police
and correction officers’
routinely criminalizing vocations,
and injudicious levying of fines
against the young
and black
and brown
and homeless

Punishing prison sentences
for the most obvious trauma victims
of chronic blue-shirt bullying,
theft,
not really clever lies,
racial profiling,
diminishment
and derision by militarized
and miseducated
mercenaries of a rabid Estate.

My son,
now twenty-seven,
was not expected to reach full emotional maturity
until his early thirties,
as evinced by research on ADHD.

However,
that pessimistic projection
may be optimistically skewed,
not accounting for trauma histories
common to significant learning disabilities,
nor a special education black male experience
in a racist and homophobic “corrections” society.

Economic and political maturity
security
integrity
may never arrive at the Promised Land
for the young black male
separated from his birthmother during infancy
to be parented by a mixed-race gay male couple,
having to defend not only himself
but his out gay younger brother
from predative peers
under the radar
of teachers
and school administrators
disabled by “zero tolerance”
means zero compassion
retributive justice
dysfunctional trauma systems.

This is the third time that police officers have failed
to include in their self-righteous reports
that they took hundreds of dollars out of my son’s pocket
and put it in theirs,
and triumphantly reported only a fraction
of the high quality,
organic cannabis found in his car,
while the majority disappeared

Not reported,
not seen,
not returned;
stolen from my young
black
homeless,
high school diploma with a fourth-grade education,
son.

If my oldest son could easily choose to work
at a full-time
living wage job

If he could get to work on time,
on the right remembered schedule,
with a reliable car,
and feel like he was not being judged,
ridiculed,
and bullied by peers
and supervisors,
shamed and blamed for not being smart enough,
clever enough,
quick-witted enough,
middle-class white enough,
man enough,
successful enough,
then he would not choose to spend long hours
and sleepless nights
delivering the only therapeutic self-medication to others
that has helped him numb the pain
of childhood,
community,
chronic post-traumatic stressors
which have led to his current social,
economic,
and political ostracization,
and potential imprisonment.

I am a certified multicultural community mediator,
so my training is about how to most effectively support
those experiencing trauma
and actively looking for restorative peace
and resilient social justice
therapeutic outcomes.

Mediators begin with identifying the victim(s) feelings
safety needs
and healthy wants,
and then explore the probability
that perpetrators too are victims
of childhood,
community,
and environmental
trauma histories,
fraught with
win/lose zero-sum
contextual stress
critical and chronic
non win/win events.

From that lose/lose potential perspective,
my son has been repeatedly victimized
by police officers
defensively trained
to tolerate their own predative
bullying behaviors.

If anyone would benefit from jail time,
and/or fines,
it is the perpetrators of organized,
anti-social crime.

But, again,
from a restorative justice perspective,
blue-shirt officers, too,
have been victimized by a militarized,
miseducated retributive justice system,
rooted in judgment,
blame,
and shame

And not compassion,
curiosity,
and contextual intelligence

Which is why I could not do
what you are mandated to do.

With unconditional regard,

GD, MDiv, MPA,
and heartbroken DD’s Dad

Choosing Happy Health

My round white anti-depressants
were trying their faithful best
to listen to my ecofeminist
wise old woman
gardening neighbor,
pulling aggressive weeds

Sharing with me
her morning meditation reflection
immediately after entering dawning eyes
and before exiting her dreamy
comforting
fertile bed

Her opening
and excavating self-invitation
to choose body health nutrition
and mind happiness nurturing
which are snugly associated
for her
like peas and carrots
remembering well-versed voice
intention

But,
not so much for me,
now able to choose health
almost every dawning day
and dusky night
but still struggling
for post-traumatic omnipotence
to thrive toward happiness
by empowered choice,
even if not enlightened voice
articulating all the many thankful ways
remembering well-cultivated rejoice.

What my gardening neighbor
and I speak of
feels like my dull
and darkly present
spatial stuck unchanging place

Which she
unlike me
can also remember
as having evolved through time
from current EarthTribe regenerating days
becoming nurturing seasons
within each annual surviving incarnation

Reversing back toward warm
welcoming first dawn light’s
empowering sacred
thriving invitation.

of sexual trauma
and therapeutic politics

Mythically hinting

Spanning spies discovering economic magic

EarthTribe’s Intimacy

EarthTribe environmental 1-healthy

Intimate intelligence
not resonantly shared
becomes at risk
of defensive fetid dogma,
colonizing anger and fear potential

Or fades away

Where win/win creolization
had actively hoped
to co-intelligently play.
