Blackest Fragile Friday

Black Friday,
iconic of Climate Fragility,
is designed to transition retail
from red
to black
end of year balance sheets.

Black Friday
is black
good
wealthy
robust
from a competitive corporate perspective.

What feels too seldom noticed,
This capital-acquisition game
is played with ZeroSum win/lose assumptions:

Retail corporations
are more likely to go richly black
as consumer households,
especially marginally surviving households,
urban apartheid neighborhoods,
rural failing family farms,
reach into shallowing pockets
to risk red indebted shortfall,
unhoused lack of holds.

To align our ecopolitical color scheme,
black incorporated economic privilege
is fed by red consumer fragility
as white political privilege
feeds on black and brown
and cooperative rainbow fragility.

One of the ways
we can remember this color scheme,
no paranoid pun intended,
is through a song,

Red and yellow,
black and white,
these are diversely precious
in His Straight White Male sight

ReIncorporated Capital-Infested God
loves all consumers
of the NonZeroSum WinWin
global market world.

This version suffers
from unlyrical challenges,
yet it still has a Black Friday ring
to cash re-registering around us.

The title of this song escapes me,
Was it
He’s Got the Whole World in His Corporation
or Shop Til We Drop?

The squirrels must think we’re nuts,
especially on Black Friday.

Between Heaven and Hell

To deliberately
mindfully
with full integrity,
intentionally choose to live
between Heaven and Hell
may be the most sacred gift of all returns.

This Messianic gift
is also the Bodhisattva in-between
back and forth
narrow way gift of discerning
win/win relationship potential
within win/lose past communications,

Sacred opportunity
without secular risk
within, and emerging from,
business as left-brain dominant usual,

Ours to offer each other
through empowering courage–political,
positively invested curiosity currency

[micro through macro economic,
ego through eco logical
zero-prime relational],

transparently uniting-inviting,
so not negatively judging and violating and threatening,

universally vulnerable,
so profoundly multicultural compassion.

To live between Heaven and Hell
is a messianic choice
not only for everyday conversion
into one sacred holonic Body,
but even more intimately
a choice within every moment.

Choices are regeneratively supported
by healthy verbal and non-verbal environments,
sanctuaried sacraments,
sacred ritual experiments
with people,
plants,
planet,
all EarthTribe living species
and organically interdependent ecosystems
inspiring
and inspired by Paradise past
recreating Heaven’s fulfilling future.

Life is this cross
over and back
and forth,
up and down,
in and out,
like breathing in Heaven and Hell
and breathing out Hell or Heaven
in each conscious thought
through mindful choices,
hopeful curiosities,
vulnerable courage,
transparent positive/negative passions

For and against
outward and inward
upward and downward,
between enspiriting inspiring Heaven
and denatured expiring Hell.
