Setting the Bully Table

The often unnoticed first strategic step
in bullying
is to isolate.

Religious
political
economic
and/or sexual bullying
begins, already,
feeling entitled to pervasively disempower,
dissociate,
disinvest,
unenlighten,
excommunicate,
lock up,
terminate from employment,
send to the reservation,
asylum
ghetto,
wrong side
of the LeftBrain dominant
self-righteous tracks.

Deeply separate,
divide and, thereby, expose
and bully
that Other,
or those Others,
who need to learn their place,
separate and deservedly unequal,
to relearn their divinely-inspired space
of oppression
neglect
punishment

For being wrong,
too needy greedy,
too ignorant,
uneducated
simple
quiet and sneaky
queer
unbinary
effeminate
pretentious
hypocritical
weird looking, sounding, smelling,
frightening
angry
threatening…

Such alien Others
are first isolated
at least by disreputation,
then abused

First neglected
shunned
Othered
alienated
unaccepted,

Then ridiculed
used
raped
vilified

Blatantly and falsely accused
of being motivated
to dismiss
and impoverish
the monoculturing Bullies
through stealth
or by speaking their lying,
biased
self-serving Truth

Which is always ignored
until They get too uppity
again.

Bullies
and their Victims
are, thereby, deprived
of experiencing compassionate
cooperatively appreciated
and co-invested
dialogue.

Bullies
and their Victims
thereby declare and suffer wars
where everyone,
including plants and animals,
soil and water and air quality,
suffers and loses
except, in the bookkeeping department,
the military-industrial
short-term corporate profit Bullies

Who will not realize
their self-victimizing
long-term health and safety losses
until degeneratively isolated
from all prospects for a livable
sustainable
humane
sacredly compassionate
EarthTribe health and safety
future climate.

Witnessing at the Mall

I’m at the mall
waiting for my new lenses
to find their inside home
in my old frames,

Hopefully
not like new wine
in old
opaque
outside skins.

I try to engage
with an anthro-war story,
“The Invisible Woman”

Feeling myself silently camouflaged
in a sedate sitting area
sparsely inhabited only by my eyes
searching
and ears
spying

Listening for what invisible witnesses
hear
and empathically feel

“In wartime,
trusting the wrong person
can prove fatal.”

How much safer is trust
in peace time?
anthro-dominated
industriously capitalized.

Does living Earth
even feel like peace time?

Or Business As Usual
domestic abuse,
neglect,
silent, but not really nonviolent,
atrophy?

Degenerating entropy?
of a human child’s boundless curiosity,
enthusiastic health,
win/win wellbeing
luminosity.

“Virginia…
will do everything in her power
to avenge the brave people
she lost.”

Is the only important difference
between brave patriotic people
and innocent victims of autocracy
a sacred v secular division
between anxious war
sacredly declared
and every shopping day
peace deal making
between secularized
competing consumer diplomats

Perpetually undeclaring
rights of conscientious
personal bodies
to remain innocent
of ballistic
nihilistic
trauma producing
and stress consuming intent.

Is hero-worship the only moral distinction
between society’s righteous reactionary revenge
and personal power’s need,
want,
self-righteous entitled greed
to avenge?

“Virginia knows,
now more than ever,
that failure is not an option.”

A lot of pressure
stress
fear
anger
internal oppression
when mortality
and disempowering defeat
and disabling wounds
physical and mental,
natural and spiritual,
are not an option

When power is a weapon
wielded over OtherTribes
and cannot be a tool
kindly and carefully offered
without Othering.

Like seeing
with win/win restorative lenses
in old win/lose traumatized
Business As Usual
anthrosupremacist frames

For spying how exhausted I am
by silently witnessing
uncivil
anthro-war stories.

Healthy Compassion Parties

I am deeply concerned,
worried,
anxious
that We The Humane Healthy People
need to calmly
and firmly say:

The Republican NATIONAL Party
no longer supports:
Public Health,
Mental/Spiritual Health,
Planetary Climate Health,
Cognitive/Emotive Integrity
Resilient Economic Wealth
Healthy Democracy.

A therapeutic
redemptive revival
of a trusted
true
and patriotic
Grand Old MultiCultural Party
requires pruning back through historic
toxicity
to the Eisenhower administration
channeling the Lincolnesque longing
for a more civil discourse
between those who are enslaved,
those who feel economically
and politically oppressed,
between loyal adversaries
sure of a United State of commitment
to public wellbeing,
green environmental and economic prosperity,
empowering profoundly co-empathic public health
and conservational safety.

My own Michigan
white privileged
homophobic
evangelical ChosenPeople
monotheistic father
never would have voted for a Hillary Clinton,

And he never would have voted for a Donald Trump
because of Anti-Christian vainglorious pride
in having no experience,
including veteran experience,
defending humane health
and sacred social safety.

The RNC owes We
The MultiCultural Democratic People
an apology
and reparations,

A therapeutic
bipartisan peace plan
for national resilience,
for global green health,
and for ecological-economic safety,
sanity,
EarthResonant security.

School Bored Theories

Twenty-two
and our School Boards
are hoppin

Madly divided
’bout race
and white saving face
in-between fashion shoppin.

Dear Red and Blue
School Board Candidates,

Regarding Critical Race Theory
that ignores our own lack
of multiculturing experience,

Perhaps a primally significant reason
we have issues
discussing racial divisions
throughout historical seasons
of revision

Textbooking Straight White Patriarchal treasons
against EarthTribe’s polycultural humanity,

Sacred celebrating multicultural divinity
once felt as synergetic
universal Beauty,

Continues to divide
and conquer
our best LeftBrain schooled dominions
is because rich violent red
patriotic bloodshed
is difficult to own
within our own fascist
unmatriarchal histories

Of capitalized ownership
and encultured Earth corrupting
supremely anthro-worshiping
lack of healthy eco/theological
green stewardship
through co-empathically felt
relationship.

Red candidates predict
Critical Race Theory
becomes a cynical prescription
for an inevitable future
of win/lose
zero-sum unfolding

Continuing Business As Usual
White versus Black
reverses White,

While Blue candidates refocus
on Critical Race personal experiences
of historical individuals
investing in divested
separated
divided communities,
privileged versus unprivileged
polarized nations,
degenerate climates
of active distrust
in our apartheid studied past,

Not to prescribe an inevitable future
of rightwing supported hate,
but to describe our win/lose racist past

To inform a therapeutic win/win potential future
humanely balanced,
multiculturally healthy
for our democratic
planetary future.

Twenty-two
and our School Boards
are hoppin

Mad
divided ’bout race
and white saving face
in-between fashion shoppin.

Well, your Mama Eartha’s rich
and your Papa’s Sun
shines bright enlightenin,

So, hush co-despisin,
don’t you,
won’t you try?

On Cooperative Condos

Condos are not Cooperatives,
he was quick to deduce,
reduce compassionate opportunity
to democratic annual voting duty.

But, both are co-investments
in residential
and/or commercial property,
preferably humane infestments
with exterior roofs
and walls
and windows
and doors
and halls
and floors,
she responded
all residual night
and most the residential day.

But who’s in charge
inside my space?

And wouldn’t it be nice,
she responds with grace,

If we invite each Other
to partner with We
in our cooperative journey,
as called
and able,
to invest in residents
without competing worries

Free to sing and dance,
jazz and rock
and rollerskate,
cook
and possibly clean
up outside together

Depending on the weather

Cooperatively free
to pick up the outside trashy
recycling depository
now looking kinda’ nasty

Like a neglected laboratory

While we run and walk right by
feelin’ fly
on our way in to organic networking gardens
with and without compost buckets

Children playing composite cooperative
deep nature
nurturing outside classroom education

Learning nonviolent communication
across multicultural demonstrations
of multigenerational cooperative intent
to reduce restrictive Othering,

Without claustrophobic smothering
of those who co-invest with us,
wild natured
and mild spirited,
in this condo place and time
where cooperative communication
is our culture,

To economically
and politically
and socially
and psychologically
and ecologically nurture,
as cooperatively desired
but never autocratically required.

We have always been inside
Earth’s natural/spiritual mind
nondualistically embodied
economic

Which co-created us
democratic
co-passionate communicators
from past regenerations
toward future generations
seeking wealth-optimizing cooperative health.

Our co-empowering solution
to emotional and cognitive apartheid
is not always forced to colonize vulnerable prey
for failure to rise
to some self-empowered
top OnePercent

Overpowering those Others
deaf,
blind,
and voiceless
in superstructures
of echoing monocultural oppression
suppression
negative repression
rather than positive impression;
anxiety defeating anticipation.

Healthier democratic resolutions
can transform win/lose competitions
into win/win cooperative social structures
as We The EnLightened People
of democratic compassion
become organically organized beings
within our health wealthing
EarthCentric Tribes.

Such environmentally transcendent transformation
does disempower StraightWhiteMonoCultural privileged
monochromatic views
of monotheistic
autocratic
secularizing Purpose

Divorced from sacred democratic Meaning,
attenuating resilience
and resonance
with marginalizing
disenabling
institutionalizing
consumptive

of Might Makes MonoCulturing Right
for anthrosupremacists.

A StraightWhitePatriarchal capitalist
consumer model of historical education
assuming monotheistic

autocratic powers for controlling communication
cannot peacefully

or justly
or sacramentally
avoid a co-passionate threat

Wealthing positive deviant ecofeminists

Tasty Democratic Health

Tasty democratic roots
are made of trusted vines

Healthy democracy
does not chronically debate
derail indigenous theocracy
diminish pursuit of individual liberty
to co-invest in political
and religious
and sexual powers
of cooperatively focused light

But does compassionately refine
individual human freedoms
to do whatever successful private investors

A healthy democratic co-investor
does not aspire
toward merely individual capital
exclusively growing wealthy
ego autocracy,
monotheistic plutocracy
retributively punishing kleptocracy
fallen educational consumers
of ignorantly de-contextualized pedagogy
miseducating for further patriarchal supremacy

Heading toward further scarcity

hoarding plutocracy
anti-global organic health care,
planetary climate wealth share.

But a resiliently healthy
multiculturally trusting compassion,
liberally liberated from egocentrism,
from RightWing anthrosupremacy,
from fantasies of omnipotent capacity
to avoid natural organic suppressions
of all those actively distrusted
increasingly polarized Others

Win/Lose competing

unitarian light,
and Yang/Yintegral democratic energy

Polypathic restraints

Refined by Earth’s historical experience

Might Be An Isn’t

So,
she autistically
and powerfully
said,

One me
plus one you
makes two

And we two
minus one me
leaves you one

Which feels like not
quite enough
for ego sufficiency

But one whole lot more
than zero deficiency

Because Dr. Seuss sings
of zero BirthDay rings
and EndDaze spirited non-things

“If we didn’t have birthdays,
you wouldn’t be you.
If you’d never been born,
well then what would you do?…

Why you might be a WASN’T!
A Wasn’t has no fun at all.
No, [s]he doesn’t.
A Wasn’t just isn’t.
[S]he just isn’t present.
But you…You ARE YOU!
And,
now isn’t that pleasant!…

If you’d never been born,
then you might be an ISN’T!
An Isn’t has no fun at all.
No [s]he disn’t.
[S]he never has birthdays,
and that isn’t pleasant.
You have to be born,
or you don’t get a present.”

And sacred co-prescience

One me
plus one you
makes two,
and now
aren’t we pleasant
co-present?

Note: Dr. Seuss quotes are from “Happy Birthday To You!”, 1959, when I was celebrating seven sacred birthdays.

Auspicious Nest

“The core of knowledge is love”
Satha Sai Baba

This dark November night
in New England
has come but midway

I, not so bright,
have given in
without a fight
to insomnia.

Above the small round yellow light
on my factory 48-pane window ledge
overpowering my bedroom walls
soar grayly up
toward a faint 16 foot ceiling
dark, also not so bright
when time to pay the factory’s bill
for heat
and light.

I woke up thinking about natural love
as my perfection of spiritual knowledge,
which is so far from perfect
that compassion too often remains
hypothetically unhealthy;
again, not such a bright
yet curiously necessary light.

My love has preceded coming out,
but has also followed from
indigenous perfection
of matrilinear knowledge,
that resiliently courageous DNA
embedded inside the nucleus
of each of “my” organically cooperative
synergetic,
win/win home team
cells
made of more resilient knowing might
than this stretched out
November love of night.

I remember warm
sacred EarthMother
resonant wealth
holy of home wholenest feelings

Fresh from Her womb
therapeutic Beauty feelings precede
but also restoratively follow from
perfectly healthy democratic trusts
in spiritually regenerative Truths
transparent as tonight’s opaque glass
vulnerable to personal
yet multigenerational ass
umptions

That insomniac drifting meditations
and medications
will not, tonight,
ease my economic
and politically vulnerable knowledge
my compassion’s transparency
sadly feels less brightly resonant,

Less depression-proof resilient
than these remaining hours
before dawn relights
Earth’s coloring in knowledge
loving powers

To turn off lights
in timely nights
knowing the end

Brings new knowledge
begun in EarthMother’s sacred love,

Integrity’s Great Reweaving potential
green cooperative history

Knowing sight
and meaningful
resonant resound

As my night seizure knowing son
rolls over
peacefully in love’s eternal
Loving Here
greets Knowing Now

Regeneratively bright
might imagine starlight
singing to revolving
ringing shadowed
deep autumn night.

Tomorrow is local election day
to reconsider transparent
climate trauma’s multigenerational knowledge
politically and economically vulnerable
to EarthMother’s long love memory
regenerating empowering
enlightened ecofeminists

Supporting bicameral knowledge
of democratically healthy
recreative
loving health/wealth balance

Before and after knowing
light’s brightest night
kinda perfect passions.
