Blue Tolerating Red Intolerance

To Ecological Greens
concerned about tolerating
evangelical Red intolerance
of monotheistic unstraight
unwhite
unmale
unhealthy
unsafe
panentheistic EarthDays
and dualdark wiki-nights
potentially bicameral
bipartisan
bisexual
binomial
neurosystemic green regenerations
of win/win resonant images.

Any nonbinary person
all growed up
in a homophobic
straight
white
male anthrosupremacist monoculture

Will have trouble tolerating
RightWing fundamentalist
privileged monotheistic survival
of the fittest Chosen Anthros.

Green health and safety intelligence
knows,
and more significantly, feels
profound sacredly interdependent differences
between begrudged
impatient Tolerance
of us sinful
wounded
and suspiciously conspiratorial predations
associated with Evilish UnLawful Other,
oppositionally defying
a jealous and vengeful Jehovah
of retributive justice.

Such thinly disguised
severing No!
Not Healthy!
Greens feel
as not really spiritually
mentally
physically
naturally equal,
healthy,
or resiliently safe
to quietly tolerate
while sacred Earth’s
crust grows climatic
unease.

Mere Tolerance,
rather than warm Curiosity,
democratically healthy Empathy,
doesn’t even meet second-class Sympathy
health and safety standards,
much less first capital co-investment
active hope for feeling
we are safe
within Global Green
MotherEartha Solidarity

For engaging all organic EarthTribes
and every panentheistic EarthDay’s
positive sunshine energy systems
emerging democratic health,
mental
spiritual
physical
natural whole-sum wellbeing,
wealth optimization
through green-healthy
win/win bipartisan engagement
co-passion
co-empathic parties.

Mediating blue win/lose tolerance
may be a short-term strategy
to win individualistic AnthroSafety here
only to inevitably lose global EcoGreen-health now,

To survive this Red EarthDusk
at the Green cost cusp
of non-thriving future panentheistic regenerations
of tomorrow
can never win/win thrive
Jehovah’s individualistic Rapture
today.

More than Tolerance,
LeftWing liberal green EarthLovers
seek healthy co-empathic enlightenment
and safely cherished gratitude
for longterm win/win resonant
EarthTribe thrival
of a globally cathected
panentheistic
ecofeminist Green
cooperatively-owned
and managed
co-governing humanity.

This CoPassion,
between bilateral therapeutic communion
and bicameral non-violent communication

Grows safe-felt resonance
recycling polycultural green nutrition values
which revolve
resolve

ReGenerate
emergently spiraling
positively viral:
Win liberating health
to also Win sacred conservancy
of EarthTribe safety
through bipartisan
co-empathic communication,
rooted in trusted Blue/Green Earth
health/wealth systems.

A big ecosystemic Green Yes!
both Red monotheistic theologians
and Blue panentheistic ecologians
want the promise of anthrosupremacist democracy
to nation-state survive

But,
more than merely tolerating
LeftBrain intolerance
of RightBrain both/and hypothetical ambiguity
in-between secular Green/Blue
polycultural healing ecologians
and sacred Red
mono-theologians
speaking out
acting up
for a harmful judging
blaming and shaming
God made in
RedRight inhumane
punishing
wounding
supremacist images

Our Green-most active hope
lies within what we commonly share:
Polycultural values
for integrity of safe EarthPower
and healthy SunLight,
for developing democratic
forest mountain strength
and river meadow flowing
CoOperative Trust

To health-resonantly,
resiliently-safe Thrive
our Left/Right multiculturally valued wonder
and curiously awesome EarthTribe

Comedic
in our stingy democratic intent
to Tolerate AnthroBlue Laws
as if sufficient for climate health,

And intolerably Tragic
in our sacrilegious
unGreen
militaristic Red demagoguery
as if necessary
for ecopolitical EarthWealth.

Parsing Partisanship

Gay Rights are not Civil Rights
grabs my Yahoo facetime
fast-paced news rhyme

Civil Rights are not just Gay Rights
on my administrative time
bounces back a Left WhiteHouse reprise
that Civil Rights
include Gay Rights
as a necessary subset,
but not multiculturally sufficient anthem
to cooperative network define
a green ecosystemally co-passionate refinement

Sacredly inspired divine,
panentheistically supported,
indigenously wise
green party spirited natural civil rights

Are not
uncivil capitalist
straight Anglo Corporate Rights
are not particularly humane Civil Rights

Grabs my bilateral
dipolar-coarising attention
consciousness
awareness
green woke upness
ecofeminist positive
also means healthy and safe awakeness

“Gay Rights”
by your definition
on my Right,

Are those also “Women’s Rights”?

And/or “Lesbian Civil Rights”?

What about “Transgender Rights”?
if you are a tadpole
or a flower,

Would that be OK for you?

What about “Anal Intercourse Rights?”
for mammals?

Then there’s the ever popular
“Abortion Rights”
for trees
dropping her nutty egg seeds
before their time
in times of drought
and fire
and sensual deprivation;
lack of environmental support.

Could “Civil Rights”
include “Bisexual Rights”?

Would these be “Up-To-Half-Homosexual Heterosexual Rights”?

Or, more simply,
less schizophrenically
less blatantly half secular/half sacred
less curiously half wiki-spiritual/half natural

Not quite so mentally unhealthy
bipolar RightWing dominant
parsing
and non-parsing
rumination
ruination
of what might have been
bicameral “Healthy Democracy Rights”

Which are not UnCivil Rights
of AnthroSupremacists
to commit ecocide

While LeftWing
RightBrain repressives
wonder why their RightWing God’s
LeftBrain dominant monotheistic
monoculturalism
defines conservatism only negatively,
uncreatively,
degeneratively,
dissociatively,
dissonantly,

As economically
and politically needed
to reassure us
LeftBrain
Straight AngloCorporate worldview
on restoring EarthRights to Basic Climate Thrival
really must lack Win/Win green
emotive
contextual civil rights intelligence
of the average
woke up synergetic ecofeminist.

Regardless of species
doing their basic sensing
and complex feeling
personal
and global
and tribal
and familial
and multigenerational
and polycultural
and panentheistic
and systemically integral
sacred health care
organic civil rights homework

Which is what I was supposed to be doing
when
Gay Rights are not Civil Rights
grabs my Yahoo facetime
fast-paced news rhyme
and it’s not yet dawning
Sabbath spacetime.

Sunday morning nap time
is not uncivil screen time
for writing not really news rhymes.

Reflections On Ancient Love

Long before sun light
was born from starkness

Long before Earth’s dawn
broiled unsteady hot star fire

Long before She filled
Her scarlet mind
with Yang’s high hills
time was this love

This ancient life
is reborn.

Long before our trees
greenly filled
Mother’s forests

Long before a wind
unsailed to sing
Earth’s wholesome songs

Long before She filled
Her turqjuoise mind
across Her seas,
time rewinds love

This ancient life
health born.

Long before Earth’s great chain
of being
forged ecocidal
egosystems

Long before a voice
could speak
divine creation

Long before She filled
Her bleeding heart
to grow a child
there is Earth’s love

This ancient life
wealth torn.

Long before a Truth
of love’s life
could be broken

Long before our wounds
were nailed upon a Mother Tree

Long before She laid Her body down
under His light
time spins this love

This ancient life
still born.

Wakeful each night
Greeting Earth’s dawning

Stubborn as trees
rebirthing burned
wounded hills

As we fill our healing minds
to hold Earth’s timeless time
This ancient love
Her aching life
flows stumbling on.

Note: This is a theological/ecological reflection on the lyrics to “This Ancient Love” words and music by Carolyn McDade, Copyright by Surtsey Publishing/ 1996, by Carolyn McDade.  These are the word choices I hear when speaking and singing Carolyn McDade’s beautiful composition. Not experienced, meant, intended as an improvement, update, or correction, but as a Both/And communion of sad sacred gratitude, in preparation for Earth Day, 2022.

When Wrong Goes Right

When bad choices
speak in wrong voices
delivering shame,
deserving shunning
and irrepressible self-blame,

Reconsider this jump
from bad choices
to “wrong” voices
unable to consider tomorrow’s
potential more right rejoices.

No one of us humans
has divine omnipotent might
to make all the right omniscient choices
spoken belatedly by unchosen judgment voices

To be omnipresently good
and regeneratively healthy
and impenetrably safe
for ourselves
for our loved ones
for our species
for our plants
and living planet
at all times,
in all multicultural inside places,
and polyculturally robust
outside wealthy spaces.

On better days,
well fed and watered and rested,
we may try more benevolent curiosity
about why feeling good
and healthy
can seem so frustratingly short
and insignificantly small
compared to long time
and large resources

Invested by patriarchal god-fearing
straight white corporate capitalists
to entertainingly seduce
and identity reduce
you into isolating bad faith consumer
feelings

Erupting in egocentric
left-hemisphere dominant voices
that habitually collapse
bad
unhealthy absence
of potential right hemisphere co-relational rejoices
into inevitably wrong
unwealthy feminist choices

Speaking in wrong voices
delivering shame
deserving dark fame
swamped by irrepressible self blame.

The Choir Audition

Why does she know
laying our music down
raises musicality
reality up?

Does she also know
why my lips prefer to sing
in resonant Oh,
Oooooooh…
oozing round O’s
and singular Ah’s
free of mapping static lyrics

Lines sung
hung
rung right or wrong,
good marching when uniform,
bad when too shy
of improvising bold
multiculturing unity

Harmony musing
amusing spontaneous drifts
and rifts
of EarthTribe’s light
bright woke-up
out loud power focus

Searching out deep whole-sum liturgies
of octaved musicality
we share
when fine-tuned to listen
for our not-so-silent breaths,
anticipating life’s next cooperatively felt
and politically co-empowering
story.

Songs of sacred circling lines
and whole systemic spaces
clever linearly written,
yet never speaking totally predicted sounds
resonant transcendent
anticipating in-between joy
and silent
nonviolent
resilience.

I wonder if she feels
as I sometimes can do
that muses nurture music
as abusers remain
narcissistically
patriarchally
capitalistically competitive,
unsympathetic

Lacking indigenous co-empathic wisdom,
Yang universal
Yintegral unitarian
musical integrity

Of Earth’s sound tribes flowing
songs and rhythms patterning
natural narratives,
curiously intimate Earth Day
anthems

Dancing spirited
taoistic breaths
bicamerally cooperative
contemplating solidarity
sung clarity

Under a zillion twinkling
zen core inkling
starlit choral nights.

Punishing Silence

Do we choose silence
not only as a tool
for self-protection
when speaking
our latest chapter stories
feels unsafe?

But also stern silence
may become a weapon
to ward off apathetic enemies
of our straight
hopelessly white
monotheistic
monopolistic
patriarchal capitalist
enemies

Who would not seem to care
to love us
more than we ourselves
can love them
as part of us
right now
left multiculturally
and ecofeminist
silenced here.

As you go
and liberally grow silent,
I may quietly
then traumatically
hear,
as isolating time
sticks ominously by,

“I am not your constant un-masked friend,”
and, thereby,
an ominous self-fulfilling prophecy
emergently erupts
in punishing response,

“I cannot remain
your therapeutic good-times,
vaccinated against silent unease,
healthy
co-empathic musing friend,”

To trust when skies grow silently dark
and night descends
beyond despair
to safely share
stressed Trauma

Itself first felt ray
of restoring justice promise
despite this loss of salvific
passioned hope.

Prosperity losses steal
from future compassion
already while first silenced weapons
dream denying
relentless truths of suffering
lack of healthy opportunity
to speak our fears
out loud
with those who trust
our trembling tears.

Savory Springs

If pulpy green words
had red meat nutritional value,

As feelings have openly positive
and closed negative
nurturing peace normals
and turmoil boiling abdominal
abominable abnormals,
robust health feeding
and sick bad watering,

What would you choose
to feed your co-passion learning kids,
your cornucopia complex spouse,
your significantly nonOthered
this ego-cooking day?

If fertilizing actions
were rooted in compassion
as light
fades into night

Dreams for healing yourself,
for saving this EarthTribe
self-cognized
humbled
for Whole Earth empowering
enlightened
dawning peaceful governance,

Who
and what
and when
and where
and why
would you co-passion with,
co-invest with,
co-operate with feeding bright?

This PeacEarth crunchy day
and Justice restoring
spring flowing
heart glowing

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.

Small Powers Everywhere

This little light of mine
I’m gonna let it shine

Wide and longing
for committed dialogue
not surrounded
by elitist debate,

Win/lose games,
Zero-sum asinine assumptions
requiring ego-infested shadows

Resisting win/win opportunities
of healthy
democratic dialogue

Between constituencies,
residents sufficiently humble
to become students together
and unschooled
unprofessional parents
and not totally enlightened teachers
and investigative staff
and neighborhood enquiry co-investors
in this democratic
nonpartisan
Thermos On Thames Experiment.

Where the School for Daily Integrity
hosts community resources
co-engaging win/win resolutions
producing cooperative educational opportunities
to practice
practice
compassionate praxis
nonviolent communication
to restore EarthJustice,

Where co-investors co-invite
contributions around ecofeminist friendly circles
just close enough for everyone
to hear all respected neighbors
who will not be Othered

Because we are learning,
through this pandemic of anxiety,
to anticipate more than climate floods
and fears,

Both risks
and opportunities,
dissonance
and resonance,
chaotic cacophony
and complex symphony
entrusting our capacity
for resilient health and safety
co-governance.

Not another negative
Business As Sadly Usual
competitive ZeroSum game
of wounded ego-survival
until some future small light day
still dimly hoping for big bright
ecosystemic
polycultural
multicultural win/win robust community

Co-mediation
co-operation
co-invested co-dominions
engaging spring EarthDay celebrations

Of locals feeling active hope
and mutually earned trust
predicting environmental ideas
for healing Earth’s injustices
blighting compassionate
nonviolent communication,
which would be more transparent,
risking tender lights
for growing better humored
kindness

Where silence of executives
administrators
managers
means they are deeply listening
for how we can empower each other
through heartfelt consent

And cold dark silence melts,
no longer resisting Truth
to continue postures
of professional
authoritarian
legalistic
quarterly profit-preserving business
without also recognizing long-term threats
of flooding rivers
and subzero icy windstorms.

Straight white patriarchal privileged
incorporated silence means resistance
to sharing inclusive powers
with autonomously dimming lights

Rather than unveiling
wide and bright kindness moving
away from monocultural
either/or debate,
repressing fears about surviving future floods
fears
and famine

Rather than inclusively hoping
to thrive
with good humored faith
in INTEGRAL MARKERS
of democratic health
calling for this circle
to embrace trust-rebuilding
co-empathic engagement

Feeding
and watering each individual’s strengths
and cooperatively held assets
rather than punishing our weaknesses
of fear and anger,
passive mistrust
and active distrust

Further afflicting executive professional disadvantage,
dissociations
dividing shadows
weapons for continuing
White Patriarchal privileged
and disempowered
and unenlightened
talking Heads of lined up Authority

Speaking down,
darkly withholding honest
well-lit encircling dialogue
about our shared health
interactive safety
compassionate wealth
anticipations through actively
engaging transparent dialogue

While sitting around our annual fire circle
celebrating songs and dances
of green ecofeminist healthy lights
inviting yet another safe spring thaw

Inspiring this engaging light of ours
to let our best divine co-dominion
co-investments shine.

Family Mediations

I have confronted family,
and acquaintances
at the edge of my familiars
to understand my hurt
when they economically
and politically
and socially
and monoculturally
StraightWhiteMale privileged support
RightWing LeftBrained
Patriarchal-Capitalism

Because my Kids of Color,
with physical and mental,
natural and spiritual challenges,
lack of LeftBrain full accessibility

And my GayBlackMale husband
and GayWhiteMale me
feel unfairly
and dispassionately targeted,
marginalized,
offended
by corporate RightWing
Republican elitist agendas.

My family gets it,
that your “Survival of the Fittest”
divinely ordained assumptions
mean we either need salvation
(exclusively StraightWhiteMale evangelically monotheistic)
from our sinful
unstraight
unwhite
unmale
polyentheistic idolatrous ways

And also healing
from our uncompetitive brokenness
which will only fully come in Heaven
when the canes
and wheelchairs,
feeding tubes
and mental/spiritual illness
will be thrown aside.

But, you don’t seem to get it

That EarthTribe’s original sinful nature
and deficient physical imperfections,
are self-fulfilling prophecies.

Just as you,
before you put on,
and after you take off
your Permission-to-Punish uniforms
and guns
are organically connected
to Me comes from
and returns to We
healthy wealth communal
cooperatively invested

Anticipating Win/Win Thrival
through FitIntegral Revival
experienced in daily polycultural religion

communications of reconnection
on Heaven’s Earth
resonantly here
and resiliently now
loving regenerative EarthTribe
natural creations
and spiritual recreations

Of survivalist RightWing LeftBrained
Patriarchal Capitalist
monocultural devolution;
mere competitive Win today
to Lose tomorrow
secular reductive economics

And sectarian
partisan
anti-ecological
mono-theological elitism,
as if StraightWhiteMale God’s only chosen
to win salvation people,
way,
supremacist truth,
merely survivalistic win/lose life

Entirely misses Earth’s healthiest
graced history
cooperatively blessed
win/win polycultural
multicultural opportunities
to synergetically Thrive
evolving health
and ecofeminist safety

Not only universally inclusive salvation
for all Earth’s organic creations
but also unitarian,
integral,
synergetic,
win/win inclusive
secular/sacred celebration

That does nondualistically listen to,
invest in,
my Kids of Color
with natural and physical
non-LeftBrain dominant
social
economic
and political challenges

Those left behind by corporate competitions,
militaristic drama
fear and anger-inspiring debate,

In your cancel multiculture view,
we are spiritually disabled
disempowered
too RightBrain unLeftBrain enlightened,
too green ecofeminist
too anti-redblooded patriarchal competitive,

Yet we are also
your therapeutic singing canaries
more helpful when you are deep listening
outside the narrow dualdark door
of your monoculturing survivalist cave
hoarding,
feeding
watering historic
negative PC win/lose
zero-sum
closed

Going way back
when industrious cold gold capital
replaced cooperatively nutritious compassion
of PolyCultural Organic Communion.
