Back in the height
of our pre-millennial military-industrial
of competing excess…
Once upon our Sacred Times…
Once upon a time
here in the US of Northern Americas
we used a Reservation Model
to dispose of hopelessly disabled aboriginals,
too RightBrain prominent,
multilanguaged unencultured Tribes.
not all primitive handicaps fit equally well
in the same Reservation Stew.
these new places were a somewhat different temperate zone,
not home, but not hell either,
and therefore tolerable,
But basically mistrusted
as a nongift
from an alien,
irresponsible Great White Father
of incomprehensibly irresponsible speech–
as if you could actually own water
and healthy polycultural forests,
or even MotherEarth Herself.
all of the above,
plus insufferably claustrophobic paranoia,
serious mental and physical disabling survival issues
and a diseased failure to thrive,
especially for the young and old,
and maybe the mother gardeners,
and wanna-be EarthRooted SacredGarden Mothers.
Today we can still see disabling remnants,
sometimes oppressive Reservation Group Homes,
DayCare NonCenter WayStations,
NonTherapeutic Nursing Homes
and Special InsideOnly Classroom Schools,
designed by a sinister failure to listen
to outdoor disabled voices
A failure to multiculturally listen
for polycultural health/wealth optimization
…What she said,
And, how much time have we invested in listening
to hurt children
and really confused hormone-appropriate adolescents,…
Don’t talk about unhealthy sexual non-relational deprivation,
It’s too vulnerable a topic
for your Poetry Club Meeting.
…What she said,
And listening to immature adults with physical disabilities,
bent over weeping willows
with no idea when they were last held
and loved as a fully cherished Ego
Person, old Positive Psychologist,
Valued persons here in this sacred space,
this Earth NonReservation Place.
A fully cherished person
would not have been shipped off to the Reservation
where everyone knows
we are all able to grow in multicultural love…
With polycultural health outcomes.
What s/he said,
And “Special” home or classroom
or therapeutic habitat
does not necessarily mean better
And, for some,
“Special” seems to grow pathologically worse.
Or at least
Seems to not grow any better long-term vibrant health.
our disability Reservations
appear to be further dis-enabling
as health-optimizing nutritional habitats
As compared with wealthy green environments
filled with organic eco/ego-therapeutic parents
of Food and Fuel and Fiber MultiSensory Justice
Especially for all disabling side-by-side siloed residents
living in primarily inside-voices habitats
without the music and dance,
voices and movements
of NatureSpirit’s Great EarthTribe,
First RightBrain prominent
all equally WinWin emerging
from EarthMother’s polyculturing…
Now I would have gone with
ZeroZone WinWin warm-wet-Womb.
Kind of a pre-revolutionary
WWW cooperative health optimizing place
With non-reservation Real SpaceTime 4D WealthTrends.
Much too transparent
and creolizingly vulnerable.
Let’s get back to dreams
of building better outdoor classrooms,
and organically resilient gardens
and seaside docks,
for worshiping NatureSpirit Earth Voices,
radiant skin caressing Beauty,
look and feel of green wildgrass containers
in raised beds
for sensory hand play
for naked foot massages,
and historic trails of shade embracing MotherTrees
reforesting a therapeutic nutritional Planet…
Don’t forget natural lighting
and a preference for clean and radiation-safe air,
more music and less bombing and sirens
and automated ballistics
ricocheting inside classrooms…
And sufficient pure-flowing water,
we can remember Antelope and Buffalo Elders
drinking from nearby streams…
Don’t forget to mention the Eagles and Hawks…
What about the Doves?
Not your primary audience.
And recycling hydropower mills,
Awesome rain chains
and solar panels
and wind turbines
and resonant chimes
and harmonic bells
for inside rainbow light
would not feel resiliently safe.
I fear we have veered far off our original
I miss the music of my colonizing youth.
But not the Muse,
Not for us to say
on this enabling health and nutrition
and WinWin fibrous network Way.
