Less Challenging Dances

I find it easier
and, admittedly, more fun
to climb through tough terrain,
piles of leaves,
loose rocks,
debris,

If
and when
my goal is not to push sweaty through
by force of independently superior will,

But
to dance
with EarthTribe’s diverse
and miraculous co-creations,
sometimes feeling monstrous,

While marching
up our co-arising
complexly gorgeous,

Some might say “athletic”
hill.

And, when more still,
too quiet to dance,
advance,
transport myself
from points A
through fully alphabetized Z

I sit with members
of my inter-connecting choir
to sing my solo
inside dialogues
and depressingly competitive debates

Rituals of stuck
in ambiguous refrains
and angry rounds
of songs I’ve come to care for
yet fear to unload out loud

Taking turns
to catch up
and on
and on
without permitting any advice
ever
regardless of how unilaterally wise,
nor comment
before this circling non-dialogue
completes the time allotted
for this therapeutic day
of deeply listening monologue.

And then my dance
begins inside
as sung by curiosity.

Open ended,
round and full of comprehensive stretches
across all open intersectional space
and sufficient
efficient
inter-connected time
to rhyme our stories
sung in resonance
of universal therapy
for uniting traumas.

But curiosity
does not predict
responses right
and wrong
or either serenely left
or redly fight.

Curiosity draws
us out toward undiscovered
yet felt recovered
resonance
reconfirming choirs of angels
singing Earth’s therapeutic climates
of bravely danced
resilience.

What Is Peace Worth?

I wonder what happened
to deep metric learning

That The Autocratic Man
who cannot even run his own corporation
to benefit a healthier planet
certainly does not know how
to preside over executive functions,
economically empowering
and politically enlightened,
of a safely co-invested Nation.

I wonder what happened
to deep metric learning

ZeroSum rooted Open,
not Closed,
for interdependent systemic business
and transparent cooperative reflection

Both, together, more culturally resistant,
and organic health resilient,
for cooperative historic dialogue,

For feeding and watering

and democratically engaging health
flow across timeless eternity
of Earth’s great transitioning
health is green wealth care

As contrasted to Yang-Capital strength
of 1-based Closed
entropic
win/lose
zero-sum systems

Requiring EgoCentric dissonant metric assumptions
that autonomy of Either 1-Me
is full spectral empowered
or 0-We is null
and void
and devoid of potential light,
degeneratively nihilistic.

Patriarchal-Capitalist win/lose metrics
favoring RightWing sufficient strength
to survive our endless fear-mongering
through nationalistic war propaganda
is less optimistic
less important
less healthy
less safe
more risky
less Truth also speaking Power

When LeftBrain rabidly exhausted
with evermore StraightWhite industrialized
patriarchally competitive win/lose evolution
toward loselose devolution
sulks in silent
passive-aggressive
non-resolution

While Win/Win Open Systemic
cooperative compassion
stands aside,
waiting for voices
remembering how
to listen for cooperative empowerment
and not so much competitive
absence of RightBrain
artistic
and humane Both/And
nuanced balance
of EgoRisks
for EcoSystemic
Integral democratic Days

And sleep fulfilling Nights
revisioning co-passionate Charters,
engaging Schools
of healthy democratic thoughts
with feelings

acute Both/And bicameral
contextual intelligence.

I wonder why 1 Positive
strong

rational Polynomial
still mysteriously equals
double-negative not(not)
dialectically null
and devoid of positive content
0 square rooted polymathic

Actively reflecting

On and for and of

How Many Holidays

How many times have I heard?

The family that prays together
stays together

And, the family that eats together
stays together

I know from personal Holiday
and every day
experience,
neither of these is necessarily true.

However,
I wonder if the family that sings
and/or dances together,
does stay together,
if only in our dreams.

And how many times have I thought,
and sometimes said?

If not broken,
do not fix.

If Holiday celebrations
are not broken,
then no reason to start singing
and/or dancing
now,
avoiding climatic catastrophe
by creating
and recreating
EarthPeace eucatastrophe.

Only fix fractures
when crumbling climates
are painfully obvious losses

Is a profound example
of LeftBrain Business As Triumphantly Usual
bipolar idealism

Either we are depressingly broken already
Or we are not yet sufficiently flawed
in our current competitive consumer mania

Polarized thinking
predicts selfishly predative feelings,
like marching in vicious squares
rather than choosing
to sing in virtuous circles.

Reduced to merely secular
devolutionary devotion,
Or not yet feeling naked loss enough
for a sacred solstice
revolutionary caroling
song and dance
midnight flashmob
massive howl event.

Fracturing doubts
perilously ignore intuitive warnings:
feeling masked alone,
so not extended family exposed,
never threatening to sing a kind line
or dance risky emotional steps
toward resonant healing

LeftBrain doubts
about losing control
of soberly reasonable celebrations
reminds me that most thought
and felt relationships working now
are threatened by unraveling climate decay,
by natural organic lifetime limitations,
by dysfunctional silence,
by mortal fears
and breaking anger disorders,

By denial of sufficient individual survival
through self-perpetuating love
sufficient for fixing Ever After.

Frequent flyer Left lyrics
devoid of Right rhythmic tone,

Secularized monotheism
not yet open toward sacred panentheistic
song and dance systemic communications
co-arising cognitive/affective resonance
feeling verbalizing thoughts:

If not yet unhealthy broke,
zero-sum bankrupt,
in traumatic competitive
shouting consumptive hate
and all-consuming anger
and consumer fear of crisis,
then what?

Perhaps deep listening
for feelings sung
and needs danced out
with those who do appreciate
individual sacred egos
are win/win made
to become half Other warm
ecosystemic environments
of wellness planning
unbroken,
undivided,
reassociating Trust

Reconsidered in here
healing musical space
through eternal now not hurting,
killing,
hurling time

Win/Win bicameral
dipolar co-arising engagement
ego/eco-systemic
resilient unbroken anthro health
is true resonant holiday
and every day wealth,

Earth environmental deep learning
from win/lose brokenness
toward future win/win reweaving
song and dance

LeftEgo/RightEco therapeutically cooperative
mending mindfulness
of integrity’s potential
for resonant healing
individual isolating events
of felt broken climates,

Pre- and/or Post-traumatic stress
inherited from past falling short,
narrow,
shallow everyday present awareness

Intuitively wanting to fix future
traumatic lose/lose awkward
and malforming breaks
and win/lose competitive risks
threatening long-term consumer malfunction,
and win/win synergetic mondbody integrity

and fire circle eco-dances

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

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

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.
