Distinctive Differences

What difference can you feel,
if any,
between confrontation
and engagement?

Between nonviolent communication
and WinnerTakeAll debate,
or wrestling,
for that win/lose matted matter?

InBetween cooperative compassion,
dissociative persuasion,
competitive dispassion?

Between LoseLose despair,
win/lose anxiety,
win/win anticipation?

InBetween Mono-
Bi-
Poly-Cultural
world views?

Between liberation
and conservation?

Between dialectical discernment dialogue
and oppositional competitive privileged position?

InBetween invoking cooperative compassion therapy
and provoking traumatic face-saving oppression?

Between taking a deep listening solidarity stand
and giving your autonomous position statement?

About differences you may feel,
between divisive confrontation
and inclusive engagement.

Senior Screen Time

Since retirement
I have gradually become more disappointed
with watching
and listening
to performers,
to on-screen entertainments,
to emotional yet disembodied hypnosis,
to vicarious fascinations
now suspiciously corrupt

Performance watching
becomes a cheaply vacuous substitute
for real life engagement
in compassion with hope;

Or even social disengagement
in disdain
with chilling cynicism.

I feel drawn out of retiring
and into some healthy perspiring
in a fluid multicultural river
watering compassion,

Steering clear of a tangle of wires
and technology
feeding isolated despair.

Mindless entertainments
are probable on screen
and possible reading choices too

Feeling guilty as I age
leaving way too much
for future generations
to undo.

Too needy
and wounded
and busy protecting privacy

Projecting charismatic fame
to blame
and shame
for all my ambivalence,
doubts
dark nights leaning into fear
to risk more
than breathing through another episode
of the Mary Tyler Moore

USA middleclass white folks
entertainment
without engagement

Seeking Salvation in Retiring Spaces

Prayers,
sometimes lightly lyrical,
slyly satirical,
self-conscious,
ego-
and anthro-chosen folk
transcendently
yet personally
individually woke,
and sometimes full embodied
passions in Praise Him!
shout out

Echo in-
voking round resonance
with all Earth’s eternal
regenerating lively
lovely resilience.

Prayers
express “I feel”
so invoke “I want,
even actively need”
Trust Statements

Or,
prayers are LeftBrain dominant
performances
of True v False
Health v Pathology
internal v external
enlightening transcendent thoughts
v empowering emotional support,
Reason v Passion Stories.

“Lordy, Lordy
I sure do hope
for active Sunday hope
that Donald Trump
will someday,
although probably not this day,
enjoy a long
and healthy
and unusually quiet,
cruelly serene,
claustrophobically private retirement
into suffering
and mental anguish
over all his many sociopathological
sins against natural
and spiritual,
physical
and mental,
embodied and mindful health care
giving
by receiving
copassionate
co-invested communion.”

In this prayer,
what does grandmother Eartha feel?

Lack of sufficient hope
for robust and healthy redemption,
maybe sadness about humanity’s great fall
into partisan disunion,
probably chronic climate anxiety,
in which She betrays
and is betrayed by
fear of RightWing AnthroSupremacy.

Meditations
on red sky climate warnings
nonverbally remind MeSheWe
together invoke nonviolent polypaths
leading to polyphonic
lyrical and PraiseHim!
for what we all,
with thriving rich resilient souls,
wish for

An unusually quiet,
serene,
private retiring redemption

From Old Testament
PatriCapitalist
Nothern White epic histories
of colonization

We nearly all AnthroSupremely invoke
deep EarthTribal fears
of our own BusinessAsUsual corporate
systemic
nationalistic
white cracker violent
discommunications

And we are all dearly angry
about lack of sufficiently empowering
and enlightening retirement funds
and redeeming facts,

Spiraling polynomially spacious circles
of polyphonic prayers intoned
entombed beyond eternal silence
peacefully polypathic

Invoking
“I feel lyrical” performances
and I need more than mere divine performance
embracing deep Nature/Spirit flow
ing widely polypathic
“Praise Him/Her, We Two!”

Wu-wei extending conscious
polyculturing healthy conscience
continuing compassion’s
discontinuous
EarthPeace Prayer.

Engaging Green Integrity

Not competing he
Not fleeing me,
Meaning found
through womyn We,
swimming bicamerally.

Impatient exhale lost,
curious slow-grown inhale gained.

Meaning found
in liberty
gaining win/win energy
as tangible as CapitalHeaded currency,
not autonomously
but interdependently
full-flowing integrity,
synergy.

Denial lost,
engagement gained.

Capital gains
empty with hoard rotted grains
fouled against a wet
sweat polluting air
of unfair drought
consuming future health investments

Perilous for mere
more anthrosupremacist consumers
of vanishing climate comforts

Like health care
wealth of cooperatives
steeped in synergy’s Win,
green in digenous organs
of cooperating natural
yet spiritual infrastructure
absent corrupting hierarchical sin,

Co-investing in
nonviolent intersectional communication
restoring multi-polycultures,
natural cooperative systems
eco-theological
spawning nature’s most spiritual communion

Drenched in digenous DNA’s
health wealthy engaged
enlightening
empowering
integrally interdependent
polypathic
bilateral optimizing
health systemic
wealth of meaning-filled
binomial design

Not so much by He,
Not just freely autonomous ego Me,

Meaning found
through yintegral health-yanging We,
bold integrity unfolding
bicamerally.

Pregnant NonParalysis

In feminist political analysis,
when not stuck
in all day systemic paralysis,

Every win/win
v win/lose
v lose/lose energetic trend,
synergetic person,
integral narrative,

Each interdependent development
and apartheid decay,

All seasonal health
and unreasonably greedy
fractured wealth,

Exhales multi-paradigmatic power
non-autocratic,
more neuro-sensory automatic,
and inhales enlightening Ways
for cooperative Earth’s holonic sacred promise

For Energy’s massively co-passioning
Green CommonSquareDemocracy.

Matriotic enculturing wombs
were not climate created for
and from only wounds
and premature tombs.

Pregnancy is a universal virtue
when multicultural deep listening
enlightens hope
empowering good-humored faith
no longer
less stronger
lacking educational systemic support
due to incoming
outgoing issues
of unconscious monoculturing neglect
and multicultural health under reporting
exports.

Spiritual climax
predicts naturally pregnant
eco-political awareness
within healthy wealth subclimate sensors
not overdoing censorships
passing in dualdark
double negative underwhelming
benighted dreamless nights.

Wonder and awesome Earth
prime NonZero Relationship
grows a potential climax experience
becoming more accessibly rose
in absence of coveting
and experiencing egocentric Fame,
too greedy for praise
for doing our communicating best
solidarity duty.

Seeking individualized Power
of personality
of character persuasion
of inordinately capitalized VOICE,

Speaking far beyond personal WORD experience,
avoiding humbling dysfunctional family story choices,
bumbling ego- and anthro-infestment
triumphalistic rejoices
cannot pay well enough
for repressive
suppressive
oppressive damage
to personal knowledge
and indigenously wise
anonymous win/win
interfaith play and work opportunities

To invest in Power
for what famously infamous purpose?

Competitive StraightWhiteMale privilege
LeftBrain dominant deductive powers
may be Either/Or calculated
and used,
exploited to further reduce non-elites
into gooey stuck infamy,
sinister dark criminalization,
perpetual enslavement
to addiction,
chronic stress,
oppositional defiant
Terrorista vista

Where restorative justice advocates
wear interdependent root systemic mediator hats
of and for win/win compassion

Then and There
matriotic allies
find monoculturing Fame here and now
an inaccessibility issue
for lack of sufficient StraightWhiteMale
privileged domestic peace

LeftBrain fragile Either/Or
competitive nationalistic thinking
dominates EarthTribe’s climatic privilege;

Power to weaponize infamous unhealthy wars
rather than sacred Light
healing our most lovely True
and Beautiful
cooperative divine/humane
integral infamous EarthJustice

Brightening ecowomanist global power
could have no Patriarchal Other-defaming purpose
for EarthHealth wealth
repurposed
reconnecting
re-ligious meaning,

When all praises sing out
in cooperatively resonant
famously resilient wealthy Voice
for healthy EarthClimate Choice.

To Senator Bettencourt

Thank you so much for reassuring us that the Republican led effort currently engaged under a spotlight in Texas is sure to be great for a healthy multicultural democracy.

Well, I guess that’s not exactly what you said, “None of what we’ve discussed is voter suppression.”

But, Senator, that is not our transpartisan question. Our question, the question any responsible responsive legislator serving an historical Constitution designed to promote democratic well-being, egalitarian prosperity, interdependent wealth of people, species, nations, Earth, is asking,

What have you discussed to empower voter participation, engagement, enlightened compassion?

Thanks for trying to hear better questions that the healthy patriotic people of this nation are actually co-invested in, and intend to hold you responsible for.

Slow Grown Grace

Poetry
like unpartnered,
unteamed,
slow dancing

However rhythmically precise,
concisely devised

Does not dance well
in a highly competitive
youth-oriented
commercial entertainment market

But,
does better
in cooperative venue voices,
disproportionately enthused by ancient women
investing in large-print choices,

Preferring off-line accessibility,
and not too expensive!

More deeply embedded
in soulful
left and right co-empathic
slow grown engagement.

Bigger v Deeper Egos

The belief that we become healthier,
healed,
redeemed
through commitment to some power
bigger and higher than just ourselves
follows left-brain dominant teaching,
and appeals to patriarchal thirsts
for robust ego empowerment.

Right-brain prominent feelings
do not disagree with,
dissonantly conflict with,
this bigness metaphor
but monotheistic universalism is not right-brain resonant,
while depth is everything
everywhere
every interconnected potential Time
of radically profound interdependent Identity.

Ego identity
feels emerging from
and returning to
deep ecosystemic nutritional streams
of curiously submerged becoming
co-passionate together
as facets of one boundless
unfathomed ZeroZone
double-bound
bilateral win/win becoming whole
holy
holonic
synergetic
integral.

Big and from-on-high colonization
is never historically resilient,
is always unsustainable,
except when intended
and multiculturally experienced as creolization,
benign largess, invitation
from deep compassionate pockets
of resonantly sacred generosity.

Left-brain either-or thinking
about how to be part of bigger
universally monotheistic Power
can become confluent with right-brain both-and feeling
becoming more deeply etched
ego-identified faith in action
within eco-individuating awareness
of nature’s interaction,
deeply spiritual compassion.

Where left-brain egos long to be part of a higher power,
right-brain win/win prime
ego/eco-relationality
belongs immersed in reconnecting deeper co-passioning rivers
of healthy energy streams
flowing up from enlightening dual-dark Source,
sacred resources,
silent webs of becoming
deep wells of resilient resonant belonging.

Flighty Entertainments

Why does flight feel more lightly entertaining,
yet less engaging,
than fighting?

Laissez-faire thoughts lighter
than ponderous confronting ruminations,
Why?

I would not expect a babbling infant
to understand why
WinWin cooperation deeply entertains
for learning health-enhancing cultures,
ego/eco-therapeutic religious experience,
bicamerally democratic government,
multicultural compassion-nurturing
Golden Rule co-governance.

This omnipresent co-relational laundry list of engagements
I would explicitly
cooperatively
compassionately
spiritually
and naturally hope for
from mature entertaining adults
immersed in nonjudgmental egoNows
and nonperforming ecosystemic Heres
curiously ego-echo familiar
as WinWin stunning synergies
of primal ZeroZone co-presence
breathing in engaged acceptance
to breathe out health-optimizing
non-egocentric interdependently co-acclimating performance.

Why does LeftBrain
hope to escape
from yang-competitive Win/Lose risks,
feel safer,
more defensive,
more protective
of egocentric BusinessAsUsual performance,
while chauvinistically leaving RightBrain
in Lose/Lose hopeless despair
or Win/Lose lack of integrally fulfilling performance,
or unnoticed and shunned
alone with WinWin impressions
of healthy economic entertaining opportunities
alternatively missed,

And Left/Right ecological
and theological
and governmental
and religious
and multiculturally compassionate wealth
of thoroughly engaging non-violent health-opportunities?

But, really, LeftBrain competitive ego-performances
are not so much RightBrain embodied integral brainstem
deep learning
cooperative WinWin health-care synchronic,
resiliently satisfying
like harmonic singing
and synchronized dancing
and writing ego’s Win/Lose comedic/tragic
peak and valley experiences,
enculturing nutrition-stories
of healthy and unhealthy input breaths
causing wealthier entertaining output humors,

Muses,
Performance notes to self:
Now is time for ZeroZone
to breathe in regeneratively again.

To beat bicamerally
therapeutically
compassionate co-engagements again,

To become WinWin ecstatically co-entertaining,
once again
fully cooperative awareness
perceptively enraptured,
witnessing Earth’s natural/spiritual entertainments.
