EarthHealth Justice

Human healthy trust ecological experience,
including wealthy peak sensory transubstantiations,
uniquely recreate Divine sacred co-empathic feelings
of theological confluence,

InterReligious mystical integrity
enveloping what had been felt,
before this timeless temporal metamorphosis,
as a more autonomous egocentric identity.

Theo/Eco-Logical neuro-systemic communication
of inside/outside/sacred-co-inside echoing
co-incidental relationships
reframe compassion’s regenerative processes

Such as indigenous
pantheistic
theological integrity
co-arising shared sacred feelings
of anticipated/anxious sensory longing
for win/win EarthTribal resilient
resonant re-connection
re-ligious Awe
re-weaving Wonder
regenerating peace

Restoring
Re-storying EarthMother past narratives
of pristine
sacred pre-Anthropocene
pantheistic health
is also perennial Golden Rule
co-arising humane climate recovering
bicameral

Saving Face Campaign

Nonviolent designers
of Public Service Announcements

Like “STOP”
smoking
shooting up
drinking
trashing
burning
ignoring various morbid diseases
sinning
sundry mental/spiritual pathologies
unsafe behavior

And feeling ugly
smelling
bad sexing
eating crap
unsafe touching
declaring vengeful wars
Straight White Male supremacy
ecofeminist confused agendas
greens
reds
whites
blues
browns
blacks

Lust
rust
greed
going to seed

All these STOP campaigns
seem to miss my pointed
loser experience
that aiming for what makes me right now happy
is, perhaps, a long-term disgrace

So, what I aim for
instead
is whatever lies
and hiddenness,
safe camouflage
behind
and beneath respectful society’s
muttered under sour breath
“good riddance”ness,

I aim for saving face

You can campaign
all commercial day
and consummating night
to persuade me that my health
is also our happy
absence of communal fright
and resonant,
perhaps even resilient,
brilliantly enlightened
and empowering wealth.

But,
in my heart
of hurt
addiction
depression
anxiety
remorse for an angry life
at least half dead
from fear
you may uncover me
in ways I can’t pretend
to self-righteously defend.

I need some campaign
even larger than anti-addiction
to thinking either bliss
or blues,

Win/lose
Earth’s evolving
devolving runaway mission,
money exchanging zero-sum remission,

Not for peace,
or win/win health is also wealth,
or whimsically precarious
happy nest.

I want to join
Earth’s Great Return
for self-regenerating
revolving annual campaigns
springing climate forth
summer’s healthy maturation
falling harvest wisdom
wintering indigenous
sacred
nurturing meaning,

Theological enlightenment
ecologically empowering
in-between
co-arising Yang SunGod
and Yintegral
Matriarchal Earth

Tribes consuming public campaigns
green co-passionate
communion
saving Earth’s most happy face.

BumperSticker Salvation

I’m behind a dull white Chevy sedan
developing a lived-in look
while waiting for a greener light

With more than sufficient time
to read two rather ragged bumper stickers
in radical red,
relentless white,
and smoky blue.

The left side message
right in front of my resting wheel
reminded me of my waiting shame
that Jesus had to die
because of my personal sins
for which no one else
could even be partially
pulled out to blame

Only confirming
my bad-self flame
burning along with
a ZeroSum Win now
to delay Losing later
our all-in financial
and partisan lame game

Selling out to our competitive patriarchal
hierarchical shame
of predative corporate Christian Capitalism,
which is what remains
of Cooperative Economics
after squeezing all natural
indigenous spirit wisdom
out of wealth
is health optimizing life.

If only I were less selfish
and lazy
about mediating good-faith
healthcare co-investment cooperatives
as I move along
through each nonviolently communicating
day and night

Bringing me back to the bumper sticker
on my right wing
reminding me,
There is room left
at the Cross for me

Which immediately feels threatening,
ominously judged
and found collectively guilty
for my personal lack of faithful
healthy Soul,
big shortages in potential win/win co-investments
like gratitude for PolyCultural GreenHealth Communions
wherever I might stumble into them again
acting like We care
about health wealth resilient Us.

So, I’m tragically predestined
to climb onto the same rugged cross,

[and why is our cross always so iconically “rugged”
rough and primitive
ragged and wretched
manly and rapacious?
Why never graceful,
flexible,
poignant
transformative
potentially metamorphic
compassionate?]

Losing today
to maybe survive until tomorrow morning’s
StraightWhite God
declares redawning
punishing
timeless omnipotence
to judge all my tomorrows.

Yes,
there is a room for me
at the patriarchal foot
and the capital head
of threatening
punishing mortality
inflamed by oppression
of LeftHemisphere dominant
StraightWhite PatriCapital
anthro-divine individualistic
monotheistic supremacy

Worshiping healthy SunEnlightened humanity
by denying a wounding Cross
we have win/lose ZeroSum created
and recreate each day
between each nightmare
against sacred Earth’s polycultural communioning
reunioning
reweaving
win/win NonZero Soul
optimizing sacred Integrity’s
ecological
economic empowering
EarthWealth

Of a love so radically liberal
Jesus could get more democratically down
off our CapitalistCorporate cross

And then
I’m suddenly no longer behind a dull white Chevy sedan
developing a lived-out look
while waiting for my greener light.

Bread Is From EarthManna For Heaven

Deep warm-blooded
Dark brown
Multigrain Manna is from Heaven.

Sometimes,
OK, most times,
I’m not actively building a cooperatively co-invested
residential
and environmental health system,
or even a local family-safe
polyculturally resilient community

Because I am too capitalistically infested
with buying and selling
highest and best autonomously owned
unreal estates for developing future asset benefits
to my autonomous anthro-egoself

I become distracted by autocratic
automatic-acquiring capital,
by competitive win/lose assumptions,
that empowering long-term
climate in/exformation
sensory infrastructural
co-invested health priorities
are merely monocultural
patriarchally reasonable
BusinessAsUsual normative
extractions into my personal kingdom
potential Paradise

Even while watching
and hearing
and tasting
and smelling
and feeling
and touching short-term capital investment wealth
non-returns
disconnections
retributively, rather than co-redemptively,
meeting StraightWhite patriarchally privileged
over-powerment

LeftBrain dominant
win/lose realistic
ZeroSum competitive economic
for white privileged corporate survivalist
anti-ecological
presumptively extractive
white privileged outcomes
long-time not resonant/resilient thrivalist.

Messages that we all care about community safety
and respect family-protective health care priorities
make no co-operating GoldenRule
counter-historical
military-industrialized sense

While investing in LeftHand interdependent co-relationships
in between health equals wealth
Win/Win extended feminist family systemic side

While simultaneously disinvesting with RightMightHand
autonomously dissociating
anthroprivileged wealth-building
capital-patriarchal predatively dominant
dogmatic ego-uberness
over nonelite natural secularized real Estates,
monopolistic autocratic States of Mind
verbally conscious
and nonverbally felt loss of win/win
co-investment options

We are leftbrain more or less aligned
against long-term resilient win/win family climate health
and safety,
cooperative ownership and management power
and enlightened rational environmental health

Against cooperative self/other development
GoldenRule resonant
and resilient networks
for compassionate community communication
democratic contractual consensual redevelopment

Against health/wealth transactional designs
for nonviolent ecotherapeutic green peace
restoring healthy justice
residential systems
matriarchal networks
rational natural
felt also indigenously spiritual
co-investing communion estates

Way more safe
and sacredly significant
multi-sensory experience satisfying
than merely secularized
industrialized
corporatized
little ticky-tacky boxes
monotheistically monetized
real verbally static
silent ZeroSum Win/Lose assumptions

Quick
cheap profit margins
irrelevant
and actively resistant
to long-term sacred EarthCreature health
is also secular nutritious communal wealth
enlightened cooperative governance

Manna from PolyCultural Heaven
is also Bread
from and for
higher and lower
wider and deeper
outside and inside
RealHabitat EarthEstates

Reminding me
I can’t buy Holy Communion States,
we can only build them
to gather
restoring EarthJustice.

GreenDemocratic Health Images

Imagine your healthiest body
is a democratic
self/other empowering organism

Ideally,
most nutritionally,
nurtured by an also open,
living,
dynamic win/win preferential,
evolving,
revolving planetary universe,
in many sacred times and places
also known as MotherEarth.

Notice
your democratic bodymind
is an open
holistic
ego/eco-centering
co-invested re-centering,
co-acclimating interior and exterior
bilaterally systemic infrastructure
for democratic health,
rooted in mutual trust.

If your brain is in charge,
this is a democratic charge,
a coordinating
complexly inter-communicating
organic whole system responsibility,
leaving no individual organ or health function
irresponsibly behind.

Not an autocratic,
from above,
hierarchically patriarchal,
capitalistic
head-mind over felt-body matter,
unilateral authority
capable of long-term
win for leftbrain dominant mind
only at the cost of a lose
for rightbrain democratic
organic
interdependently felt nature/spirit
body/mind bicameral communion intelligence

Bilaterally ego/eco communing communication
looking for win/win neurological
whole system
democratic resolution of health issues,
pathologically autocratic cancers,
cognitive/affective predations,
viral dissonance,
rabid and rogue behaviors,
win/lose anthropocentric ego-inflations,
lose/lose terrors and global humiliations,
rather than win/win wonders
and sacred awe of Earth’s resiliently healthy
democratic regenerativity.

Now, recall important political statements
influencing your own development:

A family is not a democracy.
A classroom is not a democracy.

Both implied “should not be” statements
almost certainly true
in your own predominant civil empowerment/disempowerment
formative experience,

Embracing win/lose
either-me/or-you competitions
between empowered teachers and preachers
and not yet mature and experienced
sometimes you win,
usually you don’t,
children and adolescents
and young adults,

Many of whom,
especially those poorer and darker,
will graduate into military-industrializing subcultures,
where patriarchal
leftbrain dominant autocracy
of commanders
over enslaved
and rented both/and repowering bodies
become reduced to untrusting tools
and win/lose
high risk strategic weapons.

These young left-brain autocratic adults
will certainly not be gathering rich Trust experience
in democratic dialogue
over autocratic debate
about the weakness
of win/win EarthJustice restoring democracy.

So, is it possible to hear?

Families, like competitive classrooms,
intending young life healthy empowerment,
often autocratically disempower

An economic and political warning;
A challenge to overcome not-yet mature democracy
rooted in experience of robust cooperative Trust,
rather than an unintended civics lesson
in rabid leftbrain dominant autocracy,
as if capitalism
were patriarchally inevitable
as racial
and sexist
and homophobic
and xenophobic
and anthropocentric apartheid.

As if mutually mistrusting
competition for individual investment power
were democratically healthier
than win/win cooperative models
for shared mind/body
spirit/nature
sacred/secular
eco/ego-systemic wealth,

Resonant trust,
resilient love,
trusting compassion

Imagining our healthiest bodies
are democratic
self/other empowering
Earth responsible organisms.

UnderStated Yet OverHeard

I’m not comfortable
talking about racial differences,

Or even racial
or sensual similarities.

I know what you mean
or maybe I do.
Something intimate and personal
about melanin
and hair qualities
and what lies red-blooded
under shared and segregated skin.

I remember when long hair quantity
was an anti-patriarchal political statement,
maybe even economic;
But not qualities
like “good” hair
or “black” hair
or “kinky” hair
or “Aryan” blond hair
or “much too blond” hair.

I’m uncomfortable
talking about kinky sex, too.

I’m hearing something about mixing
personal and political.

I know, right?

Like, when did the decision to have a baby
or not,
because of emergent climate pathologies,
impending drought
and hunger

Pandemics

Floods

Fierce and frightening windstorms

Failure of insurance
and financial
and healthy-democratic v fake-populist government systems
become more than merely personal?

I don’t know.
I’m starting to see reality of power-centers
the eco-Other way around.

Meaning…

That personal climates
and characteristics
are also politically empowering
and/or disempowering,
often with economic
investment and/or divestment
implications;
Not partisan, especially,
but essentially political,
like positive and negative cultural power.

When was the last time
someone told you,
“It’s not personal,
I’m just not ready to commit”
Or
“It’s not personal,
it’s just a time and money budget problem”
Or
“an administrative decision”
“come down from corporate”
“change in [impersonal, generic, general] policy”
“a decision [choice] made upstairs”
about a group of individuals
of which you, unfortunately,
are a now unwanted part.

As if,
because it’s political
or economic policy,
it can’t become legitimately felt as personal
disempowerment
or even familial empowerment;
like capitalistic corporately learned responses
to cultures of melanin
and kinkiness.

My favorite
is when people ask me
not to confuse religion
with politics
and economics.

I know, right?
Like most of Earth’s human population
could
or would place their faith
in politically impoverished
or economically disempowered
counter-cultural
communitarian cooperative communication
and spiritual and sensory education
and ecofeminist formation failing systems

Like ecologically failing subclimates
and theologically monoculturing racism
and sexism
and straight white patriarchal privileged
left-brain dominant systems.

Personal systems.

And political.

And economic.

And social-psychological

Multiculturally transmitted

Whether by democratic constitutions
or divinely inspired scriptures
or patriarchal lines of spiritual masters
teachers with diverse levels of aboriginal melanin,
and good or kinky hair,
and those upper eyelid folds
I’m not sure I Western trust…

Citizens DisUnited

Awhile back,
in the Dred Scott decision,
SCOTUS denied rights of citizenship
to people of color
“as a subordinate
and inferior class of beings,
who had been subjugated
by the dominant race…”

So, we need not dig too deeply
to rediscover where straight white male supremacists
and systemic racist allies
might find our strongest
most toxic heritage
language
beliefs
lack of inclusive discernment,
absence of multicultural intelligence
united citizens experience,
values of all people
for all creatures here below.

Anyway,
with this precedent in place,
we might similarly nuance the Citizens United language,
giving corporations the rights of citizenship
without the responsibilities of healthy stewardship,
authority to buy media speech
and heavily invest in purchasing political competitions;

This right more transparently unveiled
as the authority of a superordinate
and superior class
of capital-acquiring beings,
masters of organic Earth’s climate degeneration
who have subjugated the unstraight
unwhite
unmale
suffering from non-elite lack of multiculturally appreciated face,
too slow race,

These assumptions
of who is SWM better than whom,
rooted in outworn
and unhistorical
and supremacist
win/lose environmental theories,
blossom as further toxic prejudice
against Earth’s primordial health rights
and humane responsibilities
to repair damages,
restore peace of natural/spiritual
left/right
west/east
north/south cultural hemispheres
of resonant geopolitical balance.

GrandMother Moses

I was minding our own ancient business,
making maple and brown sugar oatmeal
for my constantly
and instantly
devouring daughter,
when GrandMother Moses
of Poetic Narrative
broke into my day:

frankly, I didn’t even know She could speak

Racism and Patriarchalism
are the inside Angry
and outside Terrified voices
perpetuating retributive injustice
and capital-value monopolistic
monocultural
monotheistic
win/lose competitive models
of Left v Right,
West v East,
North v South
Ego v EcoHabitat

VerbalMind v NonVerbalEmbodied
multiculturing intelligence
with ego/eco-cooperative therapeutic intent.

Then the kettle
began to whistle
a just-in-time
win/win
ecopolitical reminder
we can choose to compare
and contrast
across a spectrum
of win/lose
through lose/lose
toward appositional co-arising win/win
with sufficient
just-right/left
out/in hot water
and maple with brown sugar oatmeal
to feed our constantly
instantly hungry
potential EarthMothers.

Climate Reparations

Come by here, Lord,
Kum ba ‘eah;

Come by here, Land,
Kum ba yeah;

Come by here, Love,
Kum ba yah;

Oh, EarthSoul Mama,

Someone’s singin’
Someone’s swingin’

Someone’s in pain
Someone’s dyin’

Someone’s laughin’
while Someone’s weepin’

Someone’s prayin’, LandedLady,
Kum ba here.

Each of us contains
a therapeutic difference
Between bad news trauma
from suffering and pain
untimely lost,

Amid degenerating chronic loss
of resilient healthy prospects

Someone’s coming, Land
with aging bones,
with deep Earth longing
to appreciate this difference

Between ego and eco-fragmentation
despair of timeless souls,
capitalization
commodification
buying and selling out
positive regenerating hope
for negative ungenerously depraved profits.

Come by here, EarthBodies
of wisdom to re-attach repairing climates
with vulnerably resonant messages,
re-memories of Earth’s detritional enslavement,
of apartheid bought
and sold embodied souls

From non-elite historic elders past
prayin’ for reparations
restoring youngsters health wealth futures,

Home safe journeys, Earth reparations
kum ba here.
