Health Loss WarGames

As I transitioned from high school
to the University of Michigan,
one of the leading national health and safety issues
was painfully violent loss of Vietnamese and U.S. lives,
and hundreds of thousands hurt,
maimed for life,
if only on our now insane war-torn insides.

President Nixon
and his Secretary of State
Henry Kissinger,
when pushed by my peers
to get out now,
once and too often said
“I don’t disagree with you
as to the wisdom of our original involvement,
but we cannot leave in a way that would cause dishonor,
loss of credibility…”

My own Republican parents seemed to agree.
What they and Nixons and Kissingers could not hear
was our morally imperative challenge:
We agree with each other,
and with our most patriotic ForeFathers
and ForeMothers,
and our Vietnamese and U.S. grandmothers,
as to the health hazards and unsafe indefensible original involvement
in shooting each other
to continue not resolving legitimate economic and political issues.

Because of these historical precedents
to procure and protect mutual health,
happiness,
and prosperity,
we cannot stay in Vietnam
in a way that would cause even further dishonor,
loss of health and dwindling wealth credibility…”
political credibility
ecological credibility,
just plain rational credibility,
or even both Left and Right sacred integrity.

It saddens me to hear,
as my children are now of about that same adolescent
through young adult time,
vulnerable to full health care choices
accessible only for those with deepest pockets,
to hear Republican leaders
responding to recent overdue Affordable Care actions
with:
“I don’t disagree with you
as to the wisdom of health and safety
original constitutional intent,
but we must leave behind Democratic Obamacare
improvements toward this sacred federal mandate
or dishonor our partisan public disservice,
and further muddy our loss of credibility.”

Again,
they are not listening
to voices for secular health
and sacredly defended safety of all lives:
We all,
Republicans and Democrats,
U.S. and non-U.S. residents
with democratically cooperative original constitutional intent,
must not remain the only wealthy nation
without a clear culture of health federal mandate
to protect economic
and ecological
and physical
and mental health
and safety of all lives,
now,
and those yet to come,
or we will continue to bring dishonor upon ourselves,
and an even longer pathological history
of decreasing global credibility,
not just among humane nature
but with
and for
and of all Earth’s health-wealth optimizing natures.

Rivers Revolving Crises

In backyards of my history
lies a tidal river
of ebb and flow revolutions.

These revolutions are normally no-news evolutions
back up toward headwaters of crisis and opportunity,
diastatic and polyphonic purest capital boundary roots
for future’s river flow investment
out-flowing down
from Earth’s absorbing rain
back through tributaries
toward saltwater seas of creolizing cultures,
estuary bounded
vulnerable fertile forests
in deep blue lagoons,
anthro-roots of historic habitation preference.

Preference for normal downstream flow
of peaceful evolution
following wiser councils.
Uncivil and international strivings paddle more violently upstream
merely to tread equivalent water,
stuck in midway-revolutioning
ambivalence about criminal necessities
of both WinLose capital gives and takes of violence
about our historic civil rights
to simply revolve around
to float WinWin downstream
with time to sing and dance together
more harmoniously
heading for Earth’s shared polyculture forest
Paradise of globally non-violent,
and well-fed, democracy.

Democracy has swung both ways
across my USA lifetime.
Sometimes revolutionary fighting
toward purity ideals of heavenly headwaters,
inspired by conserving dreams of where
and when
and how and why
our river of democratic loving leisure started,
in austere glacial yet matriarchal mountains
of alpine womb regenerativity,
bright and thin-aired climates
yet already trickling with deep rich promise
as this river’s economy tumbles down
both healthy wealth
and pathological abuse
of toxically competing poverties
among nutrition’s spiritually diverse dynamics.

Dynamics of feeding and bleeding rivers
feel not yet ecotherapeutically known,
yet ecologically
and psychologically
and even democratically
and global multiculturally felt and already heard
as absence of dissonant ecopolitical waters.

No regenerate river can bleed investments
downstream toward political enculturing forests
except what has been co-invested fed-in upstream
evolving cooperative nurturing streams
flowing economically healthy downstream.

Downstream revolutions
are caused by history’s upstream co-invested evolutions.

Evolution along this democratizing river history
prefers to AnthroParadise arrive
within Earth’s blue lagoon fullness,
emerging from headwaters of capital investment
cooperatively flowing down and out
to become caught where most needed
by future generations
longing for eternal peace,
yet finding daily violence
in nationalistic
supremacist,
often patriarchal,
voices.

Voices violating tidal rivers silence have not yet listened
to learn
deepy etched peaceful river revolutions.

When rivers are yet young and steep
and still bedrock stoned
with our own internal needy cultures,
we overfeed gravity’s urgent pull
down and out into salty seasons
of confusing chaotic surge and surf.

Surfing revolutions of peaceful tidal rivers
are sweetest
in deep creolizing histories of matriarchal family
and tribal peace-keeping cooperative revolutions,
slow-evolving rich soil striation,
river double-boundaries by WinWin consensus.

WinWin consensual tidal rivers
flow back to re-invest in capital producing austerity
of ego-eco concentric flowing purpose,
to conjoin again
back down and out
creating forested economic views
and deep creolizing dreams
of slow rhythms
rich blues
dancing in and out,
up and down,
singing democracy
back and forth,
breathing in history’s peaceful evolutions
with acrid burning and burying violent revolutions
to breathe downstream and out
peace intending rivers
co-revolutioning awareness,
bleeding ebb of matriarchal opportunity
and feeding flow of patriarchal crisis.

Problems of Successful Choreography

Old misunderstandings of how Earth
and Her species
evolve,
regeneratively and degeneratively change,
sometimes in revolutionary expansive/implosive quick and great transitions,
but more traditionally in slow-grow emergent spacetime development,
are often summarized in secular capitalism’s
Might Makes Fertile Right.

While this does capture the Yang strength side
of Earth’s fast and slow revolutions,
PermaCulture Design’s principles for polycultural long-term success,
rather than ego-endosymbiotic monoculturing,
this generation only, success,
stresses our need to return,
to repent, say the prophets,
to revive, say the preachers,
by turning from high individualistic-competing yields
from non-renewable fuel-driven technologies,
as if only they were God-Given,
to set an evolving clock backward toward non-regenerative energy descent,
degenerative trends
and concomitant traumas of our current overshoot
into climate and landscape pathologies,
internal-egotistical and external-anti-ecological.

Succeeding time in evolutionary reverse,
appears revolutionary to those of us who have been chosen
by colonialist capitalism’s logical transition conclusions
to retrain old faith and reliance
on using less competitive and more sustainable yields
from Father Sun’s solar Yang-radiant strength
and Mother Earth’s wind and water Yin-nurturing flows
from and for
renewing recycling restoring regenerating resources.

This is not so much about anger competition management,
and more about restorative ego/eco justice.

The problem of Might Makes Right success stories
is they patriarchally dominate,
and matriarchally suboptimize,
Yin’s ecofeminist flow opportunities
for maximum yield
and optimal cooperative-constitutional nutritional reinvestment.

Patriarchy’s singularity,
intrinsic domineering supremacy,
hides its oppression of our bilateral
nondual co-arising matriarchal/patriarchal
recessive-reverse-hierarchical
network stretching and extending multiculturing balance
ego/eco opportunities.

Yin’s embryonic,
womb-like,
nutrition-nurturing ego/eco zero-sum equivalence,
but within an open ecological Universe,
with WinWin positive polynomial and polypathic bicamerality
with double-binding negative ambivalent N(NP)
effect-cause spacetime dipolar co-arising
spiral re-linearity,
the very sideways holonic
fractal/octave “8” scale octave structure
of regenerative bilateral DNA
and RNA,
and our iconic nature symbol for Eternity,
without stipulating whether perpetuating successes
emerge toward Paradise
or DualDark entropic chaos,
dark Yang v Yin
over light C-Yin and C-Yang
as c-squared dipolar appositional
as Eulerian ergodic harmonic fractal
as Fullerian 0-sum cooperative synergetic thermodynamics
of/for
from/toward
deduct freedom from/induct freedom to
Left/Right
4-equivalent dimensional
co-arising organic spacetime.

This problem with capitalism’s evolutionary success
is its cultural weight too far beyond devolutionary overshoot
of Might Makes Patriarchally Left v Matriarchal Right
outmoded unbalanced paradigms.

This way of not seeing,
and therefore voting for,
perversely supporting unhealthy Earth’s anti-wealthiest devolutionary future
is intrinsically anti-Christian,
and anti-multiculturing religious,
anti-social
anti-sacred ecology
in general
and basic ego/ecojustice principle.

Capitalism’s competitive excesses
desecrate Earth’s cooperative Commons
essentially by denying this wisdom of regenerative-cooperative
democratic co-reinvestment in future healthy abundance;

Which is not a logical or ecological possibility
in the co-presence of Yin-Matriarchal-Cooperative
flow-power enculturing equivalence,
advocating for climates and landscapes of healthywealth ambivalence,
polycultural and polypathic and polynomial and multiculturing
polyphonically creolizing
capitalism’s tradition as understory
of Earth’s cooperative nutritional health
as mutual trust economy.

WinLose games and ecopolitical strategics of Me Against You
do not sustain when they dominate
within an ecosystem,
a population,
a democratic citizenry,
a universe,
a ReIterative Communication Gaming Frame,
or even within attempts to retain open communication lines,
requiring both Yang-integrity speaking skills
and Yin bilateral cause-effect-cause
recycling co-arising dipolar listening skills.

If capitalism is a true success of Earth’s wealth history,
how is it also notnot potential failure
for Earth’s healthiest Paradise retention potential?

Scientific method,
to become and remain optimally successful,
has always theoretically watched
for importance of both deductive Win/Lose tests,
and cooperative mutually-inductive, co-informing, communications
transcending specialized paradigms,
promoting WinWin speciated learning
reiteratively delineating successes,
permacultural nutritional outcome production,
not just information about what has been consumed
from and in our past,
but also wisdom about what we could produce
more transliteratively danced and sung together.

Too long articulated hypostasis
is also too immature creolization potential;
these two nondually co-arising together
rebeginning ourselves toward sacred dipolar re-acclimations.

Subversive Dance

I hope we can help ourselves
and each other
become quieter,
more leisurely,
generous,
grateful,
graceful dancers of sound
rhythm
pattern
voices of color
to see and hear these quieter vibrations
of wildness.

Wildness
wilderness
relatively untouched forests of mountains
and oceans,
rivers
lakes
ponds
swamps of wildness
for quiet forms of song and Earth dance.

Dance
moving to louder voices of climate pathology
and landscape erosion
decomposition of home and safety,
but also quieter dance
of witness
stalking visual prey
we would not violate with unwanted harming touch,
turning and swirling whorls of joy
quiet
yet also loud tornadoes
hurricanes
tsunamis whirling wildly loud.

Loud dance thrashing
climates of disarray
for smaller subclimates within
remaining wildness of species memory.

Memory of meadow walks
and naked tree climbing
swinging dances with polyphonic gendered nature
nurturing quieter wilderness
teaching slowing leisurely dance
through each day
returning to healthy full moon wealth
of wildness,
ecodancing movement to sound
and pause for silent graced lines
of sight.

Sights of quieter fragrance
and pungent distant fear
remembering mountain
ocean
water and air
fire and Earth’s Wildness
dancing loud pathologies
of Her majesty and awful wonder
reminding me and us
to respect our wise gratitude
for quieter voices and movements of nature
teaching grace as gratitude
for wilderness within
as wisely without you and I.

I hope I can help
grow quieter listeners
of wildness songs sung together
with dancing graceful pause,
wish for wilderness witnessing partners,
mutually stalking copresence
within Earth’s cooperative quiet majesty,
ecodancing drums
too anthro-discentering loud,
yet sometimes refreshingly polypathic quieter journeys
dancing softly hummed,
paused within echoing forests
of bounding binding wonder.

Evening Rainsong

Alone again
yet evening rain falls
cooling fresh breeze voices
anxious for everything,
angry about nothing.

Nothing to do about rain falling
as sure as gravity
of dripping issues
landing in my lap,
splattering naked children’s sleepy heads
and innocent soft shoulders.

Into each life…
Yes,
yet eventide rains inside voices
wet down dwindling life
of tiring consciousness.

If I could not read or write or speak
who would I sing with in new found leisure?
Scattered lyrical thoughts
of painful rain
for evening’s loss of light,
and dawn’s dew drop evaporations
raising praise for might
of rain rising up yet again
to grace some other’s night.

We each sing with rain dying alone,
a humanic nature feeling trapped
alien emigrant returning home
to Earth where all creations fail and fall
to rise again singing through new voices
and hues,
spectral rhythmic
dances of songs and cries
each our lived together owned,
rising up new throated sounds
disintegrated symphonies
of song sung out
toward tomorrow’s rain clouds
capturing moist radiant waves,
wet sounds of song
well-lived yet bound.

I hear too complex songs for living,
polyphonic evening rains
falling down alone
to rise again belonging songs
evaporating praise,
leaking radiance
gathering together.

Into and through each flowing melody
of rebaptising life
dirged this night alone
yet heard as well-sung rain forever.

False Prophets

Disciples: How will we know True from False Prophets?

Teacher: You will cooperatively discern them
by their polycultural-loving outcomes.

When does fear that disasters are becoming too relentlessly true,
masquerade as anger that such events and facts and trends
must not be true,
conspiracies of elite-alien over-powerers?

Fear and anger are bipolar opposites
and, more importantly,
are dipolar points of paranoia’s contrasting equivocations.

Fear strikes inward
while anger lashes out.

In-between lies double-binding denial
that the other could become a deconstructive co-motivator,
a partner in paranoia’s past crimes
against reality
not faced straight-forwardly,
with autonomous power and sufficient courage
and loyalty to those who have already been hurt,
and continue hurting,
by terror and pain
violence and degenerative disintegrative mayhem.

Are deniers of bad news
responsible for what they say
and therefore free to speak their responsibility
for economic and political and ecological realities
they are psychologically compelled to deny,
especially through compulsively loud, sometimes violent, repetition?

Are those who are confused
and enmeshed in their fear-constructed worlds
responsible for their anger-mongering on bad days,
anger management on better days,
tendencies?
How responsible could truth terrorists be
while maligning the minds,
and sometimes vulnerable bodies,
of those who speak hard to hear histories,
threatening ever more violence
and terror across landscapes
and climates of one’s own lifetime,
one’s own people,
family and allies,
kin?

Early interventions,
exorcisms of fear and anger power
are most effectively performed by wise parents,
listening mentors seldom available
to rampant waves of ill-developed paranoia,
rooted in alternative angry and distorted fact-telling,
xenophobic conspiracy constituents
of pretend historical facts.

How do we respond to our neighbors
who are also angry deniers of inconvenient facts?
Alien AngerBuilders
unwilling to speak truths to further paranoia producing prophecies?
Bad news will repeat and grow
unless we learn cooperation’s RightBrain creations
co-governing inductive truths
of mentor more powerfully inter-relational than pathological climates
and internal landscapes
of dis-membering empty-nonevents.

We have been born into this time of immigrant-identified
and threatened crisis
unwilling to repent
unskilled to Right with Left reweave,
Earth’s eco-native Commons Spirits
ecological nature-power
with economic cooperative-nurturing powersharing,
Golden Rule multiculturally co-committed
to further growing with each other,
to not perish in a self-paranoid silo
of double-binding terror.

Imagine these conspiracies dis-owning you,
belonging within no alien other,
and denials of past and on-coming events and facts
magically evaporate this night
because of our dreaming healthy futures
we will cooperate together
even through this most patriarchal Father’s Night,
committed to ecosystemically reconnect
FalsoEgo with TrueEco
Left with Right co-mentoring mental health
ego/eco-centering double-binding wealth
of cooperatively loving co-arising opportunities
less hopeless bound by LeftBrain dominant denials
of RightBrain fear-taught conspiracies,
cognitive-affective learned dissonance,
entropic-chaotic dis-ease.

Paranoid denial double-binds
are empowered by negative-fueled criminalization,
violent attention,
abusively relentless shaming response,
absence of listening through Basic EcoCentric CoPresence
asking faithful questions
more than providing loving answers,
trusting through this deep ecology listening journey
mental illness faithfully listening with
searching depths of self-loving therapies,
co-healthing allies,
internal co-mentors
co-messianic Bodhisattva Warriors
of and for peace,
health’s understory
for cooperatively therapeutic ego/eco-justice.

Denying the right to publish
those who deny the rights and wrongs of ecologists,
ecotherapeutic analysts,
forecasters,
truth-tellers of pathological unweaving health-assurance trends,
to speak and listen with and to and for and of us,
our cooperative global polyphonic potential together
is not a denial of free truth-telling speech,
because confusion between True and False Prophets
cannot lead to anything other than conspiracy fears
and angry unfreely shouted untruths.

Giving ego-manic mental illness a microphone
for spreading contagious fears and anger
especially among those already vulnerable,
troubled adolescents and children,
abused and shamed and hurt and lectured-to adults
of cooperative WinWin ignorance,
ensnared in monoculturing monopoly games
of Win to Lose LeftBrain supremacist
neglect.

Rather than giving my ecopolitical microphone
to further inflame unskilled unfree to speak Truth
competitive marketers of Anger and Fear Management
as our best autonomously suboptimizing hope,
I find it better to broadcast contagious cultures of ecotherapeutic wealth,
ego/eco-centering abundant health.

Gift Horses

If we want to improve our shared climates,
and our interior, more guardedly intimate and vulnerable,
climates,
then we best cooperatively manage our nutritional/toxic landscapes.

Annual planning by individuals and families
seldom hopes to regenerate ecosystemic climate health,
but can realistically engage in discernment of healthy landscapes,
interior and exterior.

Combined and shared within a healthy democratic culture,
our cumulative ego/ecotherapeutic intent,
planning,
implementation,
evaluation
are our best cycle of hope and positive multiculturing faith
toward global climate health,
and not so much internal/external pathology.

To fully embrace a gift,
especially those inherited from our Elders
and perhaps still accessible for our children
and their children,
is to invite our climates and landscapes as sacred ecological grace
and also to accept responsibility
for gifts uses,
maintenance and repair,
eventual repurpose,
recycling any degenerative waste produced
as a questionable gift
for Earth’s next generation of interdependent species,
and the next…
for how many generations?

Gifts, like sacraments, bring gratitude
for changing new authorities over resources,
nutritional flow of opportunities
but with a potential risk of responsibility
for contributing to our children’s toxic waste stream.

A principle of Permaculture Design
endorses planning from broader spacetime pattern
of spring through winter climates
and back to spring again patterns first,
then look more closely
deeply in to more specific landscape networking details
of regenerative authorities
inherited from Elders
and degenerative responsibilities,
healthy production flows
and unhealthy waste streams
left to and for fragile future new-growth regenerators
and vulnerable degenerators.

Which is why,
contrary to what my grandfather advised,
I am learning to look even gifted horses
in their mouths
to count the landscape costs
and to appreciate climate details
of healthy horsepowered teeth,
devouring and recreating sacred ecosystems,
regenerative and decomposing change.
