To My Last Breath

When I was a newborn,
I had no experience to reassure me
my first gasp for air
would not also be my last.

Between that first second inhaled reassurance,
and now,
I have operated under a romantic assumption,
More clean and nurturing air will follow.

Now, I have enough post-romantic experience
to deter me
from assuming this next gasp
for healthy air,
for more time to listen for compassion
still surfing in and out
EarthMother’s warm bath of nurtured reassurance
will not also be my ego’s last.

My dramatic eco-memory’s first romantic breath
now also echoes my last timeless moment

Fully
ecstatically re-investing
away from ego’s autonomous wall
of lifetime erected identity
into a webbed forest’s nutritional re-memory
faithfully resurrected again
not autonomous,
unpropertied
unincorporated
unbreathing
more than me.

And I hope I will not be troubled
or even distracted,
by all those competing for air time breaths
assuming falsehoods of ZeroSum economies
in-between first and last.

Nature’s Communicating Systems

Communication
unveils nutrition’s multi-media events.

Nutritional flow power
fuels health’s wealthiest messages.

Nonviolently compassionate nature/spirit communication
nurtures nutrition’s most robust
multicultural
win/win medium.

Our nurturing neural systems inside
are more like a mature deeply resilient forest
outside
than a desert
or tundra
or ocean

Although older parts of our lower brain network
may effluently
co-empathically feel more water-based,
sometimes a placid lake,
often a wildly surfing and surging ocean,
occasionally a productive beautiful flowing brook,
a tidal stream, up and down and up again,
a mighty river of power
rooted in interdependent rivulets
emerging integrity downstream
toward flooding compassionately communicating mouths

Open to communion with oceans
of new/old information
exflowation
breathing in forests
exhaling seas
and tsunami seasons
of win/win fluid energy.

Communion ReFormations

Defining Terms:

Ego–not Eco

Left–not Right
If Ego = not Eco,
as Left = not Right,

Then not(Left) = not(not Right)

If Left hemisphere is Either/Or dominant
as Right hemisphere is Both/And prominent,

Then Either/Or = not Both/And
and
not(Either/Or) = not(not Both/And) logic
and ecologic
and theologic
and biologic
and sociologic
and anthropologic
and systemic-logic
and comparative Win/Lose to Win/Win healthy wealth game-logic.

Calculating math
and strategic arts and sciences
and integrity compromises and risks
unfortunately necessary for economic or political power
ZeroSum loss containment

Are not the same closed-off skills sets
as Open Whole Systemic life skill mythopoetic WinWin co-facilitations
felt through bilateral geometrics
and biotic life sciences
and old performance arts with new info-technology sciences,
and integral health-wealth optimization opportunities

Invited by WinWin maximizing ecopolitical cooperative ownership
and inside/outside
ego/eco-management powers
through multicultural democratic health gains

As calculated and strategically WinWin commodified
by multiculturing EarthTribe
Zero TaoSouls.

It is an important principle
of ego/ecofeminist bilateral dipolar therapy
that the yin-healer
polypathically loves to learn
to stretch toleration for intolerable yang-aggressive people

And growing robust tolerance
co-acclimation
for understanding patriarchal principles,
physical v metaphysical dissonant pain,
mysteriously dying plants and under-privileged species
and denying matriarchal WinWin PatrioticPlanet
tipping toward a bilateral balancing point
hoping for our open Universal ecosystemic Win
and unclosed Unitarian-Integral ego-systemic individuating Win.

Unfortunately,
this reform may require transforming the yin-healer’s memory
back toward early WinWin childhood
and/or projecting toward a future
shared WiseElder tolerance
fore-giveness
and long-term restorative mercy
for all past intolerant communications
in response to monocultural colonizing
patriarchal intolerance
of polycultural creolizing
matriarchal tolerance,

Celebrating both/and everyday communion.

Embedded SpringTimes

Perhaps we all secretly long
to be embedded in perpetual spring time.

My most entertaining pre-pubescent memories
of spring’s most sacred times,
when occasionally left
to my own leisurely adventurous pursuits
outside for further natural/spiritual embedded nest

Include a warm and sunny afternoon
unfolding on Saturday’s mid-western stage,
going to a pond
waiting on the edge of wild
lying on my belly
with my nose nearly touching

Her still surface waters
watching spiders
walk over Her
polliwog organic submarines
waving
going somewhere fins
propelling, with me,
into our Saturday afternoon
nutritional adventures
embedded in feeding FlowSource
well-being entertainments.

Another spring Saturday,
perhaps closer to full pubescent
FlowSource entertaining feelings,

I ran far back into the RoundField
where I knew a solitary MotherTree,
like me,
busy getting dressed up
in Her fulling spring leaves
while I unbusily removed all my clothes
and climbed Her
full body hugging Her trunk,
embracing and thanking each sturdy
warm-used limb
all my forceful way to Her most sacred top

To look and feel together
across this green alfalfa field
with all surrounding trees
a deeply fertile ocean forest
green-radiant slumbering mysteriously back at us,
this happy solitary FlowSource
MotherTree and ResourceMe
unseen WinWin feeling together triumphantly
becoming Be

Indigenously embedding entertainments,
Memories much richer and deeper and older
yet naked and wider and younger
than anything I ever heard or saw mid-winter
coming from inside black and white TV.

Liberal Love’s Failure

One answer to Patrick Deneen’s question,
Why Liberalism Failed,
not necessarily opposed to Deneen’s own
more LeftBrain position,
yet considerably shorter,
is:

Profoundly democratic liberalism,
like Christianity,
has failed because it has not been multiculturally tried,
to paraphrase anti-colonialism
and non-violent communicating
Mahatma Gandhi.

Strangely,
this may also be a kind of corollary
to respond to a different title,
How the West was Won,
which would thereby postulate
How the West was Lost
by Win/Lose capitalist pretensions
to overpower Win/Win resilient integrity.

Scriptures of Communion

In prose,
Writers hope to accurately capture
both felt and thought experiences,
realistic and unrealistic,
in a way that suggests
our writer knows and can deeply feel
the differences and similarities
between realistic and not so much.

Poets hope to not only capture
accurately felt and thought experiences,
realistic and unrealistic,
natural and spiritual,
but share this internal experience
embedding and thereby challenging
writers’ readers in shared language of communion.

InBetween Communions

Does non-verbal communication
sometimes also mean pre-verbal action,
with unlanguaged intuitions
preceding calculating language
LeftBrain labeling and commodifying
objectifying RightBrain subjective feelings
to their logically languaged conclusions?

Does non-violent communication
sometimes also mean pre-violent fortunate
and threateningly unfortunate
critical rhetorical events
pre-compassioned,
positive and negatively impassioning behaviors?

Actively hoping to send
a properly received message,
an effective message
confluent within a not ineffective messenger medium
to build up
or destroy
primal relationships within Earth
and Her tribal plants
and root systemic people
and other animated,
communing,
discommuning,
excommunicated
recommuning species.

Does non-asserted Yang envy
sometimes also mean pre-asserted Yin silent stagnation,
suffocating climate anti-climax,
aptic apathy
born into an already too patriarchal monoculture
of LeftBrain
EitherWin OrLose ZeroSum theoretical evolutionary dominance

Against all realistic hope
for RightBrain’s Both-EgoHealth And-EcoWealth
natural/spiritual rhetorical voice lost,
nearly bicameral forgotten absence of inside communication,

Now eco-schooled in resilient green compassion therapies,
begins to sing for light sufficient
to virally flower,
to effluently flow
out river’s mouth
filled with healthy/wealthy AllSouls,
interdependently webbed,
flowing through this HereNow valley
of ZeroZone Judean soils

On through 2020 revisions
restoring Golden Rule and Ratio green futures
timelessly co-present within our at-hand embryos and seeds
sharing cooperative genetic memories
over-lapping compassioned green sanctuary images
of who we are at our healthiest best,
have been,
and are becoming

Multiculturally to-gethering,
re-gathering,
pre-gathering passion stories

Messages,
critical rhetorically communicated events
as told and acted out by viral multicultures
with interdependently communicating media
mentoring WinLose mediums
into WinWin healthy climate justice optimal outcomes

Through peacefully cooperative
democratic
communal ownership
within Earth’s warm web womb

Non-verbally communicating
LoseLose violence through growing WinWin compassion,

Affluent atomic fragments
of sequential communal events
with effluent interdependent waves
of communicating portent.
