Domestic Voices

Virile green voices grow longer
louder
lasciviously livid,

Commanding her domesticating mind
to cut them off,
trim them down to size,
to prune and shape
manipulate

Show them and her who’s in charge
cooperating together
at just right
and fresh trimmed length
of light.

Inside Sunday sanctuary voices
hum over and around organic prelude pipes
Hoping she will ring our sacred sounds,
domesticating diverse delightful choices

Inviting her restless mind
to cut them in,
grow them up to fit size
to enchant ecstatic re-creations.

Curiously Ecological Egos

Ego systems are felt integrity
sometimes
and self-conscious mendacity
other significant times,

Restorative and yet unfortunately retributive games
with WinWin or WinLose, or even terrifying LoseLose dominant trends
in self-with-Other inflicted identity.

As eco-systems are imaged healthy
and sadly pathological,
restoring healthy climate vocations
and sometimes punishing theological revoking EarthLife imaginations

Climates of epic revenge
against capitalistic ego-supremacy

Game theories about Egos and Ecos
are sometimes punishing ZeroSum
and other times rewarding WinWin
slow green-grown restorations

Games have three interdependent risk and opportunity branches,
Win/Lose,
as in capitalistic ZeroSum
if Ego wins then not I-Eco must environmentally lose

Win or Lose capital BusinessAsUsual
degenerative evolutionary theory
trends toward inevitable Lose/Lose EarthWealth
of Health,
entropy,
absence of further ecological relationship
paucity of RealTime hope
And sin of denying theological original healthy integrity
as more powerful
than demonic pathological mendacity.

When we embrace WinWin choices
with polypathic
and polyphonic
and probable polynomially balancing
not not ZeroSum polycultural results
invite ecstatic opportunity climates
of Ego/Eco-Balance.

WinWin cooperative revolutions
are dynamic ultra-violet stuff
ultra-nonviolent communication
for healthy family reunions
and extended family revivals,
environmental reforesting collaborations

CoOperative Writers
of permacultural songs
inviting just-us matriarchal folk dancers,
fire-circle authorities
advocating universal multicultural solidarity
uniting sacred ego/eco-voiced sanctuaries

For playing non-violent ego/eco-therapy games
Story telling resilient and resonant EarthMother Wombs
reforesting restorations
incarnating our WinWin recreational choices

Secular yet solid sacred ecological vocations
re-creating theological good multicultural news sanctuaries

Red blooded hearts
with green mind bodies,
Love predators
witnessing grace-prey avocations
invocations inhaling
exhalations

Revocations of monoculturally competitive Win/Lose voices
for patriarchal capitalism,
too hotly pursuing business as curiously unusual
Win/Lose competing ego-centers
unpatriotically idolatrous players
in an otherwise Win/Win EarthMother Womb.

Political ego systems are felt integrity some healthy times
and too competitively other unwise
in significant transition times
restoring unfortunately punishing
Left/Right stretches toward
Win/Win
deductive/inductive co-operation games.

Listen to Hear Nasty

Listen my older children
and you shall again hear
a nasty story
frightening and queer.

There once were Trumpian Cathars,
a conflicted plutocratic sect
who would revive America
from all her EarthMother cooperativist
ecofeminist
unorthodox sins.

These Cathars taught their children,
and monoculturing RightWing students,
Great Trumpian Patriarchal Spirit
must competitively reject worshiping
great transitional Matriarchal Souls.

The best followers of FullSun Truth
grow fundamentally hostile
to natural feminists
turned cooperatively evangelical.

Transcendental FatherSpirits
reject denatured sexless Earth

Paradise must remain far removed
from natural corruption
of ecofeminist plumbing.

Secular EarthMother
is evil
wicked
created by a seductive Matriarchal DemiUrge
Win/Lose malevolent
violently seductive
threats against One ViralGod.

We each must choose,
said Spirit good against soiled evil Cathers,
between Creators
Patriarchal good Trumpian God
and Matriarchal WinWin CoOperative Evil,
Satanic EarthMother’s sin seduction
or RadiantLight Fathers
for LeftBrain secular reductions

MotherWitch
created Earth
wantonly seduced by nature’s Evil
Wicked ZeroZen Goddess
reproducing patriarchs against matriarchs
by doing
and dancing
and singing
and left-winging the Nasty.

Such scorching tales of EarthMothers
are better saved for adolescence,
and even and oddly non-redeeming then,
not so great Creation Stories
RightWing sedation told
just and unjust and anti-just and readjust
truth and trust and untrust and anti-trust
before Trumpian nightmares
about doing and
telling and
spanking the RightWing Nasty.

Music Therapy

What would you say
is the opposite of music therapy?

Oh, probably some way too loud
dissonant cacophany mess
of intolerably angry and frightening
bombastically hateful noise.
Why do you ask?

Just wondering if it’s just me
who sees and hears sounds of war
against peace advocating music therapy
in some synergetic harmonic way.

Who would you think is the least multicultural musical
therapeutic personality
on the US nationalistic scene?

Oh my!
We have so many loud
self-promoting voices
preferably unsung
quite so publicly.
But, one who blare and twitter Trumpets
his anti-therapy voice
more than others
does come to painful mind
and oppressed heart.

Yes,
for me as well.
On the other hand,
a couple of dance and family health therapists
come to mind
on the more positive side
of healthy faith in music healing depth of tone
and hue
and liberating interdependent cry.

I hope we hear
healing antidotes,
more resonant resounds
of deep learning resilience
mid-term sooner
than full-term dissonance.

Medicine and Sickness

Medicine and sickness satisfy each other.
MotherEarth is medicine.
Where do you find yourself?
Zen Master Yunmen
China, 800s

Therapy and trauma require each other.
Ecological Earth is nature-spirit therapy.
Where and how
and when
and what
and why
and whom do you traumatize
with small-ego identifying Self?

You cannot resolve dissonance
with traumatic thinking and feeling
and competitive Win-Lose policy making
and economic exchanges
causing natural-spiritual anti-cooperative problems.

You can solve problems
with therapeutically inclusive planning
and ownership
and mutually grateful consciousness,
cognitive/affective therapies
for Win-Win overpowering Win-Lose past trauma.

At what point does therapeutic integrity
become headed toward traumatic disintegration,
more cognitive-affective dissonance
than coherence,
transparency,
safe vulnerability,
rather than depressing
this unlabeled suppression
of integrity our bicameral selves,

Medicine for all Earth’s Tribes,
for restoring virgin forests
and pure oceans,
seas,
lakes,
societies,
cultures,
rivers,
streams,
root ego/ecosystems?

Before he was embraced
by his Democratic Party,
Senator Obama
not yet nominated for U.S. CEO
wrote about political compromise
as contrasted with spiritual integrity.
He quotes Benjamin Franklin,

“I would rather have it said,
He lived usefully,
than,
He died rich.”

The difference between living spiritual integrity
and Business As Usual
rich but dying Trumpism,
as Franklin and Obama see
healthy usefulness,
is something too valuable
to be bought and sold-out for;
While Trumpism
has no eyes to discern
this difference between health and wealth,
between loyal integrity of mutual Win-Win cooperation
and hoarding excessive riches
and influence
against future Win-Lose competitions.

Antagonistic plutocrats,
including zealous evangelical supremacists
filled with religiosity of doctrines and words
and empty of spirituality
informed by personal experience and consciousness,
measure integrity
by buying and selling their compromised competition values,
while a truly integrated democratic disciple of integrity
of healthy usefulness,
uses cooperatively healthy v. pathologically competitive
to measure different Tipping Points
between positive and negative values,
like hoarding,
and other monoculturing supremacist
negative tendencies.

If I were an Obama Foundation,
I would gather private and public foundations
and community organizer Allies,
to support indigenously owned openings
of cooperative MotherEarth Cafes,
where homeless and malnourished and criminalized
and victimized
and ostracized
would gather in PeaceCircles
to read our poetry,
to dance our cooperative rhythms and cycles,
to single our gospel anthems
to feed on and breathe and absorb organic nurture
of and for Audacious Hope,
to learn to play smarter ecopolitical Win-Win games
of healthy integrity.

MotherEarth Cafes across these Uniting States
hosting local Democratic Parties
for their open microphone meetings,
setting Town Meeting Agendas,
PermaCulturing Designs for ReStoring Peace and Justice,
in cooperation with Republican Committees
and Libertarian Committees
and Green Committees
and Rainbow Committees
and Feminist Committees
and OrganicGardening Committees
and any integrative cooperative ecopolitical party
who bothers to show up
sharing this belief
in healthy usefulness
for measuring authentically wealthy values
and pathologically disintegrative disvalues.

To contain anything
is to exclude something,
Whether we speak of our interdependent Universes
or our therapeutic medicines,
ZeroSum
Not-ZeroSum
and Not (Not ZeroSum).

Therapy and trauma invite and engage each other.
Ecological Earth is nature-spirit therapy.
Where and how do you continue traumatic
degeneration stories?
And why?

Living With BiPolar DisOrder

Living With Deplorable Adorables

I know if I say
That reeks, deplorable,
She will only be persuaded

That is adorable.

Then I might say
I meant intolerable,
And she will insist
I remain adorable,
with a dismissive smile

Then I will remind her
I still deplore,
And she’ll,
I still adore.

And so we go.

Red and TrueBlue Family

Red and Blue Estrangered Families

Dear Siblings Three,

I was reading a story
in which some siblings became estranged
after their parents died,
while others moved toward greater solidarity.

This is a variation on a diaspora story.
But, here growing physical distance
is seen more as a geographic effect
than a political cause
of growing estrangement on one side,
and solidarity on the other.

Emigration out toward others of like faith systems
and re-immigration of siblings back toward each other,
circling our tribal wagons,
for now it is our turn
for that Great Transition
into mere grandparent mortality,
to go out toward this night better informed together
than estranged alone.

I thought of how true this is for me,
with my three siblings;
an older brother Mike
an sister Connie
from whom I feel estranged,
and a younger sister Kerry
whose mind and heart,
spirit and nature,
have always been
and yet still become
as one.

If I used speed dial
on my smart phone,
Kerry would be first on my contacts list.
My husband would be a distant second.

By contrast,
if Mike or Connie ever called,
my screen would only show
Michigan or Texas
because I have never put them in my contacts list.

That is how I define estranged
as contrasted with
solidarity.

Why we are as we are
we have never discussed.
And I wonder if I will regret this
should any one of you fade back into MotherEarth
before I do.

I suppose this sibling divide
may have to do with competing faith systems
rather than exploring cooperative,
and mutually appreciative,
multiculturing faith systems.

But I have no idea whether Connie or Mike would agree
with this hypothesis of prime cause,
or might include this
in a larger bag of history and enculturation
I have not thought of,
or perhaps have not yet learned to see.

So,
when I was compiling a list of Republicans I know
well enough to ask who they voted for
in our most recent Presidential selection,
and how are we feeling now
about those choices,
two of the four people I could imagine asking,
and yet not without some fear and trepidation,
are my own estranged Mike and Connie.

This leaves me wondering
how we will grow healthier as Earth’s
#1 consumer of fossil-based dwindling energy
and #1 producer of global climate pathologies, per capita,
if we don’t even talk about this
as families estranged from each other’s faith systems
yet sharing one national,
and preferably civil,
citizenship.

Faith systems, if they are about good faith,
should produce our own lives of growing integrity
and faith in healthy futures
for our children and grandchildren.

So it is, I am asking
Mike and Connie, but also Kerry,

Who did you vote for President last year,
or who would you have voted for,
in case you didn’t bother?
And how are you thinking/feeling
about that preference now,
approaching one year later?

I’ll start,
and invite each of you to respond in kind,
rather than writing in response to my story,
or to each other’s.
We can get to compare and contrast later,
as a second stage in a national dialogue,
if we each survive this familial first.

I would have voted for Hillary
if I had found the new polling place
before it so rudely closed,
right after I finally wrestled Ivy into bed.

During both the Obama and Clinton administrations,
Hillary was the primary architect,
or at least one of just two or three,
of diverse attempts to actually pass what would ideally have become
universal health care legislation
through a typically constipated bicameral Congress.

It also seemed to me that she extends her economic
and political investments
in health care
and receiving
to environmental health care
and receiving
issues,
concerns,
and ecological opportunities
to explore WinWin bicameral solutions
for both Republican conservators
in defense of humane physical,
and mental,
and spiritual health;
and Democratic libertines of equal health and thrival opportunities
of and for all species.

I erroneously thought the Republican candidate
was unlikely to win
because he ran against all of the above,
so at least the large majority of women voters,
traditionally strong on family and community health care issues,
would find Donald to be anathema,
both ecologically
and sacredly.

So, how I am feeling now,
as a Blue Connecticut State resident,
is angry,
and terrified
that what was Presidential campaign promised
continues to be my nightmares of cosmological disaster and threat,
and therefore compelled to do everything I can
to facilitate all of us
learning as much from this economic and ecological and political mistake
as possible,
as quickly as possible,
seeking 2020 critical certainty
before 2020 reaches its ultimate November selection.

We are a two BlueState,
two RedState family,
although Michigan is more ambiguous,
I doubt Mike’s Michigan Republican experience
is peculiarly ambiguous.

If we can talk about this
in a mutually appreciative way,
with gratitude for this opportunity
which can only last through all four lifelines,
perhaps we can help set a more harmonic bicameral tone
for and with our other increasingly estranged States,
and families.
