Healthiest Wealth of Loyalty

We each and all have, I suspect,
a universal rightbrain multicultural awareness
that patriotism
risks degenerating into leftbrain fascism,

Isolating nationalism
self-righteously defending militaristic supremacy
and patriarchal privilege of an apartheid State
moving toward fear-mongered isolationism
supporting competitively debating
predative politicization
of capitalism

Rather than recognizing ourselves
as nations resting and wrestling
and co-investing
on interdependent continents
articulating green/blue loyalty to Earth
and no less nation
or solitary incontinence.

From Our Front Porch

Porches,
attached decks,
patios,
intimate places for alfresco,

These make a difference
between a fortressed house
and a transparent home,
between an ego castle
and an eco-habitat.

We also spread rhododendron bushes
and hostas,
flowers and ferns
around our stone
and concrete bound foundations.

We want stable defenses
but prefer to camouflage houses
in organic color,
life giving and taking shapes.

These boundary vistas
speak of heart felt reminders
our habitat is rooted
in Earth’s wilderness

In vulnerability
hidden from transparency
except with those who share our sacred space
inside
and upon,
within our co-passioned present time,

Presence bonding,
double-binding,
re-membering past wildness
anticipating future re-generative
re-storative
re-habituating
re-acclimating
re-bounding win/lose less
for more win/win paradise

Just barely 2020 visible
and silently audible
and fresco fragranced
and tasted,
felt
and so nearly touched
longing into belonging
on our cooperatively-owned front porch.
