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.

On Capitalizing Plants

A Commentary on

“A Note on the [Patriarchal-Capitalist] Treatment
of Plant Names”
by Robin Wall Kimmerer, p. 385
BRAIDING SWEETGRASS:
INDIGENOUS WISDOM,
SCIENTIFIC KNOWLEDGE,
AND THE [SACRED] TEACHINGS
OF PLANTS

I too often accept
with nary a LeftBrain dominant thought
that our verbalized labels
for individual EgoPersons
are RoyallyCAPITALIZED.

To write
“Marvin Appletree”
would be to strip my tree
of His/Her sacred status
as an EarthTribe indigenous
child of MotherEartha
long before my own anthrosupremacist
sense of owning Real Estate
and all the Othered squatters
breathing anonymously on It.

It would be LeftBrain laughable
to write “Mosquito”
if this were in reference
to a flying insect,
any non-individuated
yet potentially annoying
predative Other.

LeftBrain Capitalization
conveys a certain Either/Or divisive distinction,
difference,
pejorative dissociation,

The anthrosupremacist position
of humans
normatively communicating outside
our sacred Grand Canyon spaces
and our own Creations
and our own proprietary Estates
esteemed private and corporate ownership
within a Patriarchal hierarchy
of CAPITALIZED Beings.

Economists have widely adopted
the win/lose Capitalism convention
of not sufficiently capitalizing
investing in the common sacred values
of organic plants
and animals
unless they are included
in a HumanNature narrative
for an official sacred space
place LeftBrain labeled
Holy Spirit Natured Sanctuary.

Thus, the first blossoms
of my favorite RightBrain cooperative gift:
Spring bursting flowers forth
in sacred organic Forests

Are LeftBrain written
as bloodroot
and the pink star
of a California Yosemite National Park
tiger lilly.

This seemingly natural
non-spiritual LeftBrain normative
verbal rulemaking
in Either EgoMine/OrAlienOther labeling
expresses deeply held competitive win/lose assumptions
about HumanNature monopolized
monotheistic
dualistic exceptionalism,

That ego-privileged speakers
and writers
are valued sacredly different
and monotheistically better
than other EarthTribe
panentheistic
Holy Nature/Spirited species
acting as our Othered
also-ran un-invested backdrop,

Mere organic environment
with only the Truth
and Beauty
we so royally assign
on our magnanimous best healthy days
and benign wealthy nights
to revere our Sacred Elders.

Indigenous wisdom
recognizes
reconnects
re-ligions
polycultural co-relationship
of all interdependent organic Beings

As equally 7th Principle
unitarian sacred
and ecopolitically
universally important

RightBrain imported
transpositioned
communioned
co-passionate

Not in a Patriarchal hierarchy
of ecopolitical scarcity
to merely win/lose survive
otherwise degenerative lose/lose nihilistic
genocidal
ecocidal outcomes

But a PolyCultural Blue/Green Global Communion
eco-revolving gifts
spiraling circles
of EarthTribe Left/Right balancing life
includes RightBrain emotive love impressions.

So, in my LeftBrain universal ego-narrative
as in my RightBrain sacred
unitarian love life,

I break,
disconnect to reconnect,
without ego-LeftBrain partisan blinders,
to write
and speak
and sing
and dance freely

With my MarvinGaye AppleTree,
with they WiseHeron
and Boisterous Walrus
spirited natures
when I value a panentheistic
ego-person,
human Holy NatureSpirited,
or not;

And sing Health and Safety
Truth and Beauty
bicameral secular/sacred Anthems
of EarthTribe maples,
herons,
and bicameral balancing humans

When I value a LeftBrain
EitherMe/OrWe category
AND a RightBrain
holonically
multiculturally
polyculturally
poyphonically
polypathically felt
polyvagal complexly abundant
co-passionate win/win

Yang-strong/yintegral-flow
universal/unitarian
secular/sacred reconception
of consumer commodities
as productive
meaningful
mindful BiPartisan Gifts

Voting by sacred presence
for resilient EarthTribe
Left-healthy
and Right sacred safety

Democratic recycling
revolving
dynamic breathing in from above
as out from below
co-passion balancing
MotherEartha energy.

Brass WindChimes

Brass windchimes
ring melodic time
backed up
and down,
back
and forth
by boisterous breeze voices
blowing somewhat more silent choices

Before benighted rejoice
reprise to rise

Melodious inside intentions
to ring true
love’s restoring stories
of local justice circling
dynamic spirals inside
looking resounding out
virally
conspiratorially
anticipating healthier life within
Mother’s sensual gusts

Overpowering peaceful chimes
global resting
arresting rhymes
with powerful enculturing space
enlightened green spring out times

Driven by bountiful breeze
and this northbound tidal
grey-blue iconic river
flowing drifts back
and surging forth,

Downstream
yet again back up
in-between
indigenous natured out

Chiming outside colonizing industrial windows
noticing
re-connecting stressful winds
and anxious tides
of not so well chimed
compassionate green change
loudly rang

While icecaps,
empowering South
and enlightening North,
silently
soundlessly
melt integrity’s just right divine
and humane left

Eastern Earth greets Western Sun
chiming resonant hospitality
of eco/theo-logical nurturers
nourishing brass rounds
of resighted

Resonant Gifts

When my unlanguaged
RightBrain intuitive
mute muse default son
speaks in throated sounds,
urgently loud,
quietly lulling,
boisterously laughing
from belly
up to smiling dimpled face

He wants
and expects,
possibly demands,
nonviolent communication

And needs
compassionate companionship,
as do we all.

These two,
communication and companionship
not entirely the same,
and yet not distinctly different;

A creative sacred apposition
of outside relationship choices
felt as a warm accompaniment

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.

It Is My Impression

I would just like to say
that it is my impression
that longer hair
and other flamboyant affectations
are male dominant immersions
from sadly dull camouflage
into the birthright
and left
of his trans-pangenderal sex.

And I would also like to say
that it is my impression

That wars
and bombs
and other ballistic
bad depressions
are far more likely
as our fast paced race
toward mass extinctions
are killing Earth’s
healthiest climate pace.

And I would further
not like to say
that it is my impression

While predative parasites inhabit
and colonize our landmass
we’re also trash dumping
our oceans
swamping our warnings wasted
polluting our breath
about rabid tendencies
to eat our own young
with sick competitions
in militaristic fun.

And I would just like to say
that it is my sad impression

Apartheid is shunning
and rabidity is plumbing
as life losing EarthTribes
continue succumbing
to Mutually Assured
RightWing Destruction,
MAD rabid bullies blaming
and judging
and shaming
while throwing away care
for all those Others
not part of We,
supremely straight white patriarchal
Me.

I would just like to say
that it is my mad impression

Grown in a sacrileged perspiring image
of JehovahGodYahweh’s
avenging AllahWe
maybe shouldn’t die off
quite so quietly
when Earth’s Great Rapture
smells like ecocide
rabid unraveling decidedly

What Gaia would just like to say
health is Her wealthiest impression

That wars
and bombs
and rabidity
are humanity’s
own RightBrain repressing
LeftBrain dominant depressing
historically hysterical
degenerative stupidity.

Note: With gratitude, and apologies, to the brilliant, creative, musical minds of Hair, the musical.

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.

Cooperative Journeys

It interests me,
this journey into the garden
each spring
to notice how diverse vegies
and flowers,
edibles
and ornamentals,
pollinators
and soil enrichers,
work cooperatively together
when they can

My own planning part
notices potential competitions,
for light
water
deeper top soil,
but these pursue
optimizing cooperation
to jointly thrive,
not competition
to barely survive
trauma,
stress,
pain,
loss,
duress.

While sitting in the shade
looking over a host of community gardens
enlivened
and enriched
by cooperative community gardeners,

I recall business
and even public sector classrooms
worshiping at the win/lose altar
of capital investment

Sure,
without responsible question,
that at the end of our lifetime journey
we will be celebrated by our successful oppressions,
suppressions of the vanquishable
repressions of the feminist weak
within ourselves
our gardens
our families
and compassionate friends.

This has not been my experience,
that I am celebrated by,
and for,
those I have divested of
like obstacles to overpower,
mere consumer subjects
to satiate into silence,
to financially abuse,
to emotionally neglect.

Whether contemplating
another spring season
of cooperative community gardens
or harvesting reasons
at the end of a long midsummer dream

In which we are religiously celebrated
for our multicultural passions
and polycultural communion,
participating in EarthTribe’s
cooperatively redemptive journey
back toward green
pristine Eden.
