The Powder-Free Vinyl Exam Glove

It occasionally occurs to me,

as I distractedly remove my right dominant
Powder-Free Vinyl Exam Glove,
after yet another young adult diaper change,

Perhaps getting lovingly laid
by a lifetime committed
caring and passionately consenting peer
filled with warm compassion,
active hope for tomorrow
would not be the worst conjoining thing
that could happen to neuro-alternatively-challenged intelligent beings
childishly preferring win/win cooperative outcomes
derived from compassionate climaxing thought-feelings together
while experiencing full-sensory resonant mental health.

Then again,
I suppose the same
powder-free examervation might apply
to economic and political narcissists,
and patriarchal double-binary
co-disassociative left v right hemispheres
runaway debating between lonely older aescetics
ordained to fulfill male dominant sublimation
through yin-recessive win/win co-passion’s ostracization,
diminution,
fragmentation,
cognitive-affective dissonance.

And then I wonder
how long will it take
to re-sacralize humane non-elite poop
as richly robust future compost
best for black gold richly embedded fertility,
as I race and gender and age
to throw out plastic scat bags,
filled with cotton and plastic diapers
and under/overpads,
and right dominant
Powder-Free Vinyl Exam Gloves.

Hopeful Whistling Signs

I recall similar signs and notices
of ironic appeal:

“We have a zero-tolerance policy against bullying”
ripped and torn,
and is that a dried yellow yolk stain?

“This is a NO GUNS neighborhood”
surrounded by a lot
vacant except for weeds
mulched in broken shards of glass.

ZERO CRIME AREA notices
as prolific as NO HUNTING signs
in SureWood BeNice Forest.

Me thinks
we protest
too much
to not raise questions
about the wisdom of declaring victory
and moving on,
rather than struggling through win/lose
toward win/win resilient climates of peace.

Perhaps the guns
and their bully keepers
can’t read,
or don’t choose to notice the notice,
or don’t have enough time
in their conflicted day
on their lose/lose way
to making liars
of our best win/win published intentions

Made by frustrated raw spot prey
on some other day
in some other room
they would not
could not
should not feel free to enter
listen
then speak transparently
of their/our own vulnerably exhausted sweet spots

Now worn into deeply entrenched
isolated anger
hate
fear
envy
mistrust
distrust
defensive fight and/or flee choices

Provoked by win/lose competitive environments
cultures
climates
experiences
not bully and gun and crime
and co-related raw spot free.

Universal compassion
is a worthy goal.
But declaring goals already achieved
does not help induce real world cooperative progress,
especially for those not in the room
to help write our negative injunctions.

Perhaps we would healthier
and more effectively begin
with our positive universal aspirations:

We invite Zero Intolerance
Learning to listen with active compassion.

This is a ProPeace place
Cooperatively held active safe space
for growing our ego/eco-managed win/win grace.

We multiculturally and inclusively love co-passion searches
rather than dispassioned hunts
and nihilistic degenerative desertions.

Healthy people
seldom step out in anger
while co-inviting ourselves to step into compassion
with coming peacefully home messages
rather than angry commands to go back
to alien lose/lose lands from which none of us
could ever hope to survive,
much less win/win thrive.

Signs against patriarchal colonizing offenses
do not give compassionate notice
we are for matriarchal creolizing passions.

Bored President

I once invested a year
as Board President.
Indeed, I was often a bored resident
of our State Affordable Housing Coalition.

My platform,
to speak grandly
of what was more of a healthy whim,
was for safe and beautiful affordable housing

Habitat is not just an optional frosting
on the State’s health
and wellness
and prosperity cake,

A nurturing confection
to become multiculturally accessible,
co-responsively owned and managed,
and filled with resident ingredients
trained and experienced,
invested and engaged
in supporting each other’s cooperative needs
and hopes
and polycultural faith
in healthy outcomes

Presiding ingredients as essential as 7-grain flour
AND the warm slow-flowing
rich and savory
golden brown honey
of an organic
home-grown
carrot cake.

At the end of my first non-lustrous,
unfrosted year of the healthy carrot,
we were planning our annual conference,
to include our annual meeting,
the election of officers
from a slate nominated by the Board of Directors.

During the Board’s planning meeting,
We first heard from the Executive Director
about the conference theme,
which was to be
“Housing is the Answer”
[to all white male privileged executive financial questions].

Housing is the exclusive answer
to my bigger and better health and well-being cake.

I undiplomatically suggested
perhaps this is a monocultural answer
to a nutritional question
hardly any voters are asking,

Which was, I further supposed,
the reason we have an Affordable Housing Coalition,
to gather our failing corporate wagons
of besieged non-profit housing developers
and their corporate survival lobbyists,
who usually make about three
or four
or even more, times
what their median income residents
take in each year.

I thought, instead,
that affordable,
responsible,
and compassionate housing,
cooperative environments
and structures
and support systems,
are part of the liberating
and secure health care question,
issue,
potential resolution,
integral climate for Earth’s health care,
gardening
and farming,
and feeding,
and repurposing,
and recycling
resident future through past EarthTribe compassion.

Next
we discussed our slate of more mentally healthy officers
for next year.

In the past,
we assumed by hoary precedent
that Presidents
stay president
until their board term expired,
Then we tried to talk some other ambitious,
yet already over-committed, extrovert
to be our unanimously acclaimed
presumably fearless
and nearly flawless
leader,

Second in real world presence and power
only to the Executive Director
and, OK,
maybe third,
after the Financial Director.

Even so,
Board members present and accounted for,
sitting in our wisdom busyness circle,
seemed discouragingly relieved
when I began this agenda item
by announcing that we need to find a new President
because I was clearly not hearing
their politically correct questions
without questions of my own agenda.

I was happy to nominate
a young up and coming Latino leader
from my home town at the time
who was new to the Board.

After the Annual Conference and Meeting,
and his quasi-democratic elevation by affirmation,

Off to the north side
of the chandeliered ballroom,
holding less than sacred space
for mostly Ivy League graduates
without the good sense to dim the lights
and dance to The Beatles together,
maybe sing “Let It Be”
in multicultural harmony,

The new President confided
that he shares my taste
for the health care giving and receiving cake
and the 7-grain housing
and the golden brown honey
of resilient Earth cooperative residents

But, does not feel
it is safe
or liberating
to talk about that
as President resident.

I was his first clue;
probably not his last.

United by NonUniformity

What is uniformly monolithic,
like a circular law, or wall,
is non-sectarian.

What is united together
is trans-sectarian unity, like a lattice, or web,
maybe even pan-unitarian.

We can sometimes see differences
between a universal ego-centered LeftBrain deductive, dividing, view
and eco-passionate open systemic RightBrain inductive, integral, listening,
appreciating
intent
holistically interdependent meaning.

Bicameral listening deeply for universal nature/uniting spirit
secular/sacred voices of time
regenerating EarthLight
dipolar co-arising
discerning LeftYang with RightYin Selves

Muses blinking backward in DNA nutritional health memory
and forward
into polypathic universal wealth
uniting fully energetic
peace-filling diversity
of harmonically co-resonant Muses,
ego-inside with eco-outside primal relationship.

sacred historical ground ego-organicizing
secular eco-engaged fantasizing–
You?

My Nurturing Justice Interview

I was interviewing our Food Justice Coordinator
for Edible Landscape Projects
nurturing democratic peaceful outcome
projections
and trend analysis,
none of which would competitively sell papers.

She asked most of my questions.

I responded, as usual with her,
writing my tension-filled
marketable consumer-driven
and therefore possibly publishable
responses.

She replies to my
Why are Edible Landscapes
a nutritional health and justice priority?
With a question
How are youir own health ingested landscapes
a therapeutic priority for you
and your Tribe?

So I write down some notes
about how restoring nutritional justice
deserves more of my personal investment
because healthy grace
and graceful beauty
are,
and have always been,
democratizing cooperative vocations
multi-generations of EarthTribes
have, and still do, give to ourselves
going way back to cave drawings
and rock gardens,
fragrance and sounds of oceans
and sweetgrass meadows,
shrines to everyday sacred healthcare warriors
and peace-makers and singers
and liturgical rain dancers
for cooperative multi-regenerational
thirsty and hungry receivers.

Gifts of perfect nutrition
absorbed through mouths worshiping at sacred tits
but also eyes
and noses
and ears inhaling grace-filled birdsong forests.

I read this back to her
and asked if this fits
with what she intended to say
about family and community priorities
for restoring edible,
and graceful,
landscape projects.

She says Obviously so.
Nutrition is Grace is love,
she reminds us,
but actively so obviously so.
Not just a passive yin potential power!
she yangs,
Love activates a graceful racing horse
toward nutritional nurturing climates
feeding long-term organically full life–

PositivEnergy Democracy
grace racing
pro-active natural/spiritual Love.

We agreed to meet again
for another cooperatively unmarketable interview
away from our competing racetracks–
a garden venue,
or maybe an organic farm,
an outdoor reforesting classroom
nutritionally re-opened for our self-organizing
PositivEnergy Cooperative’s
inside incubating resilience,

Reweaving sacred health
with secular co-invested wealth.

On my way out
I noticed a notice
for cooperative healthcare managers
and owners:

1. Inflicting market competitions
does not grow affective or effective health cooperations.

2. Punishing revenge against lesser creatures
and their faith systems
is not therapeutically healthy
for growing higher democratic creatures.

3. Harvesting and commercializing Saints
does not grow
Future multicultural Raptures.

4. A tolerated WinLose truce
is not proactive WinWin Grace.

5. Red RightWing apartheid
is not Green LeftWing Peace.

In My AlphaTown

In our wildly indigenous
western town
we have a notorious Ancient GoodWitch.
Like GrandMother Moon,
she seems to emerge with a new, yet old,
community healing process
about once a FullMoon month.

I heard she would like to co-facilitate
a Future HealthWealth Community research project
using a STAR green-economy WinWin development process
for 2.5 days,
or weeks,
or months,
or years,
or millennia,
whichever our town Republicans
care to co-invest in
long-term healthy-wealth,
both secular left
and sacred FireCircle right.

This was among GoodWitch’s most notoriously green offers
inviting mutually gratuitous co-investments
through a co-facilitation contract
to pay eco-loving life forward

From and with
for and of
all residents of GoodWitch’s un-privileged
and privileged
and in-between WinLose longing for WinWinning
healthy communal community.

She teaches a Sacred Ecology class
using Bucky Fuller’s synergetic ZeroZone
inside-outside
Alpha-(0)Mega
breathing in and breathing out
womblike dualdark shadow Bubbles
yin-predicating
OpenLiving fractally developing regenerative systems
ecodanced at her GoodWitch CoOperative Spiraling EcoSchool
Wednesday evenings
after vespers
at the Permaculture ZeroZone Cafe.

So, I figured I would catch her for an interview
right after class,
regarding her latest Left with Right cooperative brainstem
brainstorm.

Tonight’s topic is a discussion
of Beck and Cowan’s spinal Spiral Dynamics.
Fortunately
she has already four-dimensionally spiraled
and spun her WinWin web
through Beige automatons,
like cooperative bees and ants
and bacteria,
and Purple matriarchal organic egg-nurturers,
and was just about to finish

Red patriarchal anthrocentric absolutists
remain reactionary zealots
pursuing violent survival technologies
for short-term building LeftBrain universal empires
ruled by perpetual bully-pulpit EitherWin/OrLose bullshit

Taught at RealEstate Business Development Schools
as nakedly exploitive WinLose evolutionary economics
and personal Either/Or egoprivileged politics
against healthy-wealth
of Earth’s ecopolitical cooperative
green reforesting
revolution.

Moving on to Blue,
more of a young adult
awareness of notnot Lose inside
as also notnot Win eco-outside
bilateral time-shadow valley spaces
recovering bicameral double-binding mindbodies
still too often seduced by WildWest Red’s WinLose
universal absolutistic structures
both patriarchal dominant hierarchical
and matriarchal unprivileged reverse
forward to cooperatively WinWin Blue re-unhierarchical
way back through Purple
and Beige innocently hatched NewBorns.

Now, if we can get through maturing Orange and Green,
then the last WiseElder bilateral pairing of Sacred Historical Octaves
are penultimate YellowYang
with unitarian Turquoise YinTegrity
resolving ultra-violet holonic
healing AnimaMundi
under Her creation story timespace root system
for and of MotherTrees
speaking in Ancient GoodWitch nutritional voices.

So, Orange
is patriarchal egocentric
Here and Now in Western dominating
ecopolitical structures.

Inducing polycultural cooperative thinking
is chaotically multiplistic
yet new-patriarchal/matriarchal WinWin
technological ContinuousQualityImprovement strategic.
Remaining competitive BusinessAsUsual hierarchical structures
increasingly delegate autonomous responsibility
without RealTime longterm community health-wealth authority
of cooperative ownership
and reverse-hierarchical management.

Matriarchal Greens
are prime relational
ZeroZone cohorts of health-wealth ecotherapists
like (0)Mega Good Witches and Wizards
and not so much like colonizing vampire bats
and parasitic pirate ego-starlings.

Green cooperatively invests with Red self-privileged
to share health care with those ZeroZone prime relationally under-privileged,
yang-oppressed,
scorched by FatherSun.

Secular/Sacred
Green deep learning ZeroSum
ecopolitical bilateral-binomial structures
are also bicamerally egalitarian
using Prime Zero Relational
consensual polypathic-left
with matriarchal polyphonic-right
organic polycultural health-wealth strategic together
WinWin longterm ununprivileged DNA-confluent
Gaming/Spiraling
health/wealth outcomes.

Our (0)Mega WiseElder HealthCare Agenda
derives from YellowUracil
Ego/Eco systemic
bicameral LeftYang health structures
with TurquoiseCytosine resonating ultra-violet holistic octaves
double-bound dipolar integrity polystructures
emerging from bosonic ZeroZone integrity.

But, basically,
these are refinements of Green
beloved GoodWitches and Wizards,
yin-flowing karmic grace parents and teachers
and yang-sacred ecological love preachers,
If I must speak as a matriotic community theologian
understudying
understoried
ununprivileged
community cooperative health care giving
and receiving
with ego-eco bicamerally co-investing politicians.

 

Eventually I had a chance to ask GoodWitch
what she is up to now
with her Ancient FutureSearch offer.

As predicted,
she said her only unprivileged agenda
is green forward,
restoring Turquoise Ego/EcoJustice
reweaving PositivEnergy Yang/Yin Democracy.

I returned home
wondering how to spiral all that
into a resonant sound-bite.
