Stepping Outside to ReGather

Easy to get stuck inside
my heads outside
our neglected hearts

Breathing in and out togather
fumes of historically fueled
graphite sheeted walls
too all-encumbering to smell
as monoculturing trauma

Failure to wonder

Therapeutic JustUs

Lori Gottlieb
describes mental health mediators
and dream translators
prescribing more cost-effective therapeutic questions:

Who am I?
What do I want?
What’s in my natural health/spiritual wealth
bilaterally balancing way?

What do I want more:
to autonomously control
OR
to be part of some monopolizing,
possibly monotheistic, Thing
bigger than egocentric Me?

May morph
more effluently co-therapeutic
than affluent expertise advice
into:
What do I want
to safely control
AND YET ALSO
be part of some EarthTribe
polyculturally intelligent Relationship?

Healthier
more inclusive
and indigenous
and holistic
and organic
and resilient
than excluded
and punished
and wounded
and thereby imprisoned
and victimized Me

And my LeftBrain capitalized dominance
affluently attracts Gottlieb’s rational health
and safety questions
about wounded AnthroEgos

AND my RightBrain effluent impressions
of slow-growing ecopolitical affluent feelings
grow improved for win/win cooperative global thrival
midst monoculturing win/lose competitive survival
of local health and safety therapeutic improvement
as a resilient panentheistic stress-reducer
organically connected cooperative management
re-connecting
iEarthTribe inter-religious narratives
sacredly inviting
more effluent trickles
and streams
and rivers
and oceans
of EarthTribe living
loving indigenous waters

Descended from prehistoric
more polytheistic
matriarchal cooperative economies
of co-invested local democratic
domestic energy

Tipping toward Tao balanced
bilateral co-governance
healthy communing nutritional cycles
and recycles of ecofeminist
fertile restorative justice
regenerative healing wombs
also asking:

Who are sacred We?
feeling
when we most effluently
fluidly feel
and formatively think?

What does bicameral MeWe intelligence want?

stress-triggered

reformatively reflowing political ego/eco-integrity,
co-empathic panentheistic compassion.

Unlike our left-hemispheres
taught
and monoculturally
RightWing capital over-invested
win/lose zero-sum assumptions,

Truly therapeutic
EarthTribe resilient polycultural wisdom
is more of an effluently joyful
Eastern bodhisattva peace-growing process
than an affluently measured
messianic critical judgment event

Which I believe
is what the New Testament
good news of Jesus narrative
is ego/eco-systemically
all Holy Nature/Spirited about
indigenously peaceful
Truth affluent
and sacred Beauty effluent,
definitely not RightWing
LeftBrain dominant,
wisdom.

Wounded World

I’ve seen Earth’s epitaph:
S/He did more than Her share
to heal a broken world

Which sometimes seems to invoke anger
because I can touch what’s broken
and other times provoke merely sad
because I can only feel inside
who is also wounded

Earth’s living magic,
watered fertile soil,
red-blooded organic
green clean soul
is not broken
like a worn-out clock
or formerly animated toy
or obsolescent urban block
now gone inevitably bad.

EarthTribe is not so much broken
as win/lose perpetually wounded
Paradise Lost
for our lapse
of good-humored Golden Rules
win/win re-found
happy healthy bodhisattva
rebound.

What is already broken
requires outside messianic agency,
too objectively disabled
to stimulate subjective healing salvation,
personally feeling better

Emergent internally vital
growing positively viral,
stealing from toxic claustrophobic disarray,
tomorrow’s voices redeemed
by choices erupting therapeutic promise
today.

Organic wounds,
unlike mechanical brokenness,
give internal notice
warnings of disenabling trauma
also enable therapeutic opportunity
to pull and push risk,
to massage and stretch ambiguous feelings
touching each Other’s sinews
and straps,
moral lapse,
dancing mental songs
and embodied raps

Filling in our anti-social lapse
our monoculturing elapse
of warm
and wet
and wild compassion,
integrity’s redemptive fashion.

Brokenness shrouds despair
alone
where wounds invite
our active healthy care
together happiness vocationed
for EarthTribe’s ecstatic day
by faithful contenting way
inclusively inviting
inspirational repair
with those who dare
to share Earth’s communal difference
to heal this wounded world.

Choosing Happy Health

My round white anti-depressants
were trying their faithful best
to listen to my ecofeminist
wise old woman
gardening neighbor,
pulling aggressive weeds

Sharing with me
her morning meditation reflection
immediately after entering dawning eyes
and before exiting her dreamy
comforting
fertile bed

Her opening
and excavating self-invitation
to choose body health nutrition
and mind happiness nurturing
which are snugly associated
for her
like peas and carrots
remembering well-versed voice
intention

But,
not so much for me,
now able to choose health
almost every dawning day
and dusky night
but still struggling
for post-traumatic omnipotence
to thrive toward happiness
by empowered choice,
even if not enlightened voice
articulating all the many thankful ways
remembering well-cultivated rejoice.

What my gardening neighbor
and I speak of
feels like my dull
and darkly present
spatial stuck unchanging place

Which she
unlike me
can also remember
as having evolved through time
from current EarthTribe regenerating days
becoming nurturing seasons
within each annual surviving incarnation

Reversing back toward warm
welcoming first dawn light’s
empowering sacred
thriving invitation.

Another Storm

Another storm threatens to come in,
feeling my responsibility
for uncaring
and unresponsive history

Fearing you
more than loving us

Setting out your pails
and plastic tubs
to catch cold
and dreary drips

Impaled remembering
past wet enemies
becoming darker spots
as moisture threatens,
building mold untold
as yet
by angry lips

Dripping windowed frames
and ceiling fixtures
of your felt losses
not equally carried
by more comforted me
opaque with tender crosses

Buried
in how lonely
love can feel
hidden in Earth’s evolving top,
improbable to see

Our together threatening
leaky roof may drown,
which you would have fixed
some months ago,
if you could do so
on your own.

This storm pauses
and brighter rays suggest
a sun still shining
behind dark uncivil distress

Clouds could uncover
our disassociation,
poor and hovering
coveting a sun-drenched nation

Calculating our cost in cash,
but not in minds and bodies
to stop stormy smothers
of inside raining
draining issues,
deep core tissues
thundering crash

Warning we must get this done
before another wild wet storm
fearing you
more than loving us,
undone

Darker clouds build to leak again
while I explain why
you still can’t trust me
to invest in unstormed peace

A contenting roof
unconditionally done

So all EarthTribe
can safely put away our pails
and nails,
defensive weapons,
buckets,
overflowing pans
and spans of climate panic

Now rumbling receding thunder
of fearing you
more than loving us

Turns toward replacing damaged health,
repriming stains repainting wealth
of more warmly wild respect
while together musing
about who is bare surviving
and is not thriving
with what prestorming care,

Remembering who is dry
and fair
and prosperous
and why
we fear this tragic storm
more than loving weathered warm.

Bruising Words

Words too often have rough edges,
bloody histories,
lines more defined
than relentlessly imaged cliffs,
worshipping sacred sunlight shades
of high hazards

Coveted risks
more than needed opportunities
to hard wall wail against wild creations
unmoved by words
without animated calling
longing
belonging
or wooing wilderness

Offending worded weapons
seducing well-schooled tools

Sounds with edges
and without

Opening and closing
edgeless sighing pause

Slowly awaiting surf’s slow
slurried
soft
slavish turn
to reach for shores
absorbing thoughtless
sand-grained
edges.

The Mural Project

Education Secretary Ellen,

Some of us
on the EarthCare Team
and also the Transport Solutions Committee
for special projects
are wondering
and, frankly, hoping

Your green STEAM students
and teachers
might research,
design,
and help residents paint
a historically accurate
AND polyculturally exquisite
series of murals

On our two-tiered
upper, more transcendently hopeful,
and lower, more historically faithful,
retaining walls

After our crumbling concrete parking pads
and steel-framed industrial artifacts
are hauled away
with respect and gratitude
for future repurposing

Our Transport Solutions
and EarthCare Elders
hope to use this transitional moment
to divert water runoff
to north and south bermed
and graceful descent
down toward our sacred RiverGaia,
rather than continuing to run
race
to disgrace our wet unhealthy basement

Thereby diverting soiled water stains
from historic runoff narrative face
retaining walled epic paintings,
perhaps combined with etching,
to tell a true and beautiful tale
about this sacred place
where we live
and work,
garden
and enjoy our EarthCare classroom
residence,
inside and outside

As did indigenously wise
Elders before us

And RiverGaia
learned Her future shape and flow
from ancient predative
cold
relentless icey white glaciers,

As will future natural construction
and deconstruction regenerators,
Thermal students
of green STEAM polyculturing Elders,
including co-invested us

Learning new Truth
and old Beauty Stories

Of how EarthCare givers
and health-care receivers
survived mistrust
to compassionately,
nonviolently
exquisitly thrive together
more better
than apart.

DeCapitating Capitalism

We are nearly all macro-economic capitalists
while hoping our neighbors
prefer micro-economic cooperativists

S/he said
while burning up
and out.

Yet,
a Patriarchal Capitalist
has also fully monopolized
his LeftBrain lessons
and monotheistic idolizing faith
in micro-economic,
familial
monocultural tribalist,
nation-state exceptionalist,
straight white male privileged
zero-sum competitive commodified
consumer relationships

S/he continued
while drowning
in flows of negative isms
and mono-myopic jisms.

Patriarchal capitalist
mistake what I share,
how I gift
as a weakening sign
of old girl sacred grace;
worth no more than a debit
in my personal checking account

S/he observed
while giving out neuro-systemic love
co-investments
and dispassionately viral hate
divestments.

Patriarchal capitalists
may narcissistically fail to notice
Love costs nothing
and also heals lonely
lack of self-forgiveness wounds
inflicted by past complicated relationships
and lack of valued elationships;
AND
Hate costs everything,
leading to despair
about oneself,
about one’s species,
about one’s sacred home,
and planet

S/he said
while re-creating macro-economic
cooperative health systems
AND
A dark promise of unease
and climatic disease
for at least our next seven impoverished
unenlightened
disempowered degenerations.

Patriarchal capitalists
are anthrosupremacists,
believing only human matter
and matters
matter

S/he said
while re-connecting
Open Whole Organic Systems,
EarthTribe living networks
interdependently serving resilient
neurosensory healthy lives
of intrinsic
integral reweaving value.

And,
for a Patriarchal Capitalist,
any Thing without co-relational value
as at least a potential resource
for privileged Anthro survival
and symbols of thrival
or is a disvalue
in a ZeroSum liability or asset game,
either divinely Good
or inhumanely Bad,
hoarding inspired by Original Sin

S/he complained
while advocating
for primal compassionate
giveaway Attachment.

Patriarchal-Capitalism
and PolyCultural-Communion
are negative
and positive
two binomially often unknown
and unspoken worldviews
of LoseLose
and WinWin fractal frame
in every dialectical
bilateral
appositional relationship

S/he heard then said
smelled then tasted
touched then felt
perceived then saw
health then also resilient wealth.

Patriarchal capitalists
remain too comfortable
settling for hostile and predative,
angry and traumatized
polarized economic and political survivalist
outcomes

S/he thought
and engaged her preferential vocation
for healthy and safe
enriched and enlightened
cooperative thrival experience

On the other hand,
PolyCultural CoOperativists
share deeper local
and wider global values
for environmental health and safety
through macro-
and micro-economic mutual wins
through co-relationally co-passionate
multicultural values
setting Marx and Engel’s critical analysis
of capitalism aside,
Not so much because health advocates
benignly misjudge
win/lose competitive worldviews
of natural evolution
as our road toward
something better than growing
greed and hopeless perdition,
but because of Marx/Engel’s silence
on anthrosupremacist perils
of patriarchalism

S/he encouraged
micro-ego
and macro-economial
PolyCultural-CoOperativists
to think more strategically win/win
for health and safety opportunity,
to set aside Patriarchal-Capitalism’s
risky lose/lose traumatic outcomes
unacceptable to MotherEartha’s
brilliantly co-passionate
co-invested
global resilience.

Relentless Vocation

Do you
too
grow tired?

Feeling no sufficient vacation
from your sacred
ponderous vocation
as this endless day’s resilient
wise Elder

Constantly longing for recognition,
faithfully
hopefully loving

InBetween a cognitive
emotive place

Impatient
for cooperative understanding
while curiously seeking co-empathic appreciation
for sufficient win/win resolutions
to slowly re-emerge EarthTribe’s integrity

Spiraling betwixt EarthMother’s healthy
vibrant green-blue ecology
and SunFather’s wealthy
pantheistic theology

Growing tired
from feeling no sufficient vacation
from my sacred monotheistic
ponderous vocation.

Alpha’s Omega Passion

I am recirculating red
and dark blue blood,
through veins
and springing arterials
of integrity’s compassion

Altering
wounding segregated pathologies
of death avoidance
not life danced

When we
together
see Alphas
StraightWhiteMale dominating
every space
in timeless now

Circulating Anthropocenic
panentheistic parching Earth
in Alpha taste
and touch
and see

Omega’s green capital face
and organic viscera,
MeWe Janus de-polarized
feeling dizzy
with dissonance

Traumatized
by unsecretive eyes
for not-not objectives

With healthy names
usurped by straight
white anthro-engoddened men
no one dare name
or look upon
without shame,
monotheistic
punishing blame

Throughout our dynamic history
of multiculturally systemic
panentheistic
iconic
sacred becoming universe

Omega’s tipping point
toward integral win/win
strategic green
bi-hemispherically balancing
co-messianic intelligence

Recirculating red
and dark blue blood,
through veins
and springing Alpha arterials
of integrity’s Omega co-passion.

Note: Note: Inspired and written in dialogue with Jorge Luis Borges’ “The Aleph”, pp. 130-131.
