Twitter Tirade

Dear Donald John,

I could be wrong
yet you’re not twitterish right
in singing Earth’s happiless song.

What normal healthy
Left-Right wealthy
care most about
is what you continue
not responding to

And what we do not care to hear,
to become sufficiently LeftBrain clear,
is what you are reacting through.

Our cooperative cause is democratic health
and not at all
your further plutocratic
disempowering wealth.

We long to hear instead,
to prove you are not yet quite hopelessly dead,
your vision for healthy oceans
prairies
farmland
and forest,
mountains of wealthier days.

We long to hear
maturing love
from and for our co-arising depths
understudying
understories
understanding unhealthy ruins
left for right’s decomposing salvage.

We ponder your,
as our own,
ZeroZone unknowns,
wending in entropic wilderness,
creolizing magic,
inviting WinWin cooperation games
and plays,
developmental programs
rather than reactionary pogroms.

We remain unmoved
resisting your ego’s fundamental feckless fortune,
as we inductively reassemble
universe uniting one as also another
co-gravitation.

Cooperative systems
co-arise riskier integrity,
inductive reactionary Right
with responsive deductive Left,
potently synergetic,
resonantly seductive
sleek
wilder polypathic nurture configurations
of polyphonic cryptic resonance,

Secular Left twittering Western grateful diplomacy
with Right sacred co-redemption,
CoOperative Ego/Eco-Politics.

Cascading Windows

The first of Earth’s life support systems
to go
was crude oil
Then natural-spiritual gas
Then easily accessible commercial-grade

coal.

Then wood
for crude construction.

Then electric grid energy
MiddleEastern
then Western
then Eastern colonizing infrastructures
pathologically cascaded
down
into local-cooperative democracy scale.

While internally cooperative infrastructures
of active love
beauty and grace of

PositivEnergy Democracy
expanded exponentially,
driven by both Positive cooperative investments
and Negative loss divestments
of WinNow to LoseLater
long-term self disempowering deficit,
rather than WinWin co-redeeming,
options.

Then clean drinking water
pathologically cascaded
away from where it was needed
and toward where seaside communities
entire coast lines
were redrawn,
and boundary issues
of dry nations
and barren refugee states
faded away
from multi-mediated view.

While internally WinWin
cooperative infrastructures
swept revolutionarily in,
like a grateful sacred tsunami,
economic and political cascade,
social and psychological and historical reweaving,
theological and ecological co-regenerative,
reaching toward livable climate needs
within
as without

Restoring Justified Design

In restorative justice programs,
victims of trauma establish facilitated goals for healing.
Victims are our first clients of solidarity.

But, our clients work on actively responding to punishing loss,
to violence,
violations of what could be,
and should have been, peace.

Peace and justice supported by the client’s community,
neighbors,
friends,
family,
justice and peace therapeutic systems,
positive faith communities and naturally sacred environments,
organic nutritional relationships.

In each of these relationships
between restoring justice mentors
and distressed victims,
offenders,
and environments of peace and justice nurturing support,
we also describe
normative therapeutic relationships
found within Permaculture Design.

Permaculture clients feel victimized by pathological changes, issues
in homes and properties,
farms and gardens,
stinky lakes and eroding shorelines,
looking for remedies to help restore right relationships
with these climate and landscape offenses.

Ugly views
and smells
and sounds
and lack of flavor
and unbalanced nutrition,
disproportionate shade and light,
toxic subclimates,
poisonous weeds
and blighting neighbors,
diseased trees and unproductive flowers.

And, like restorative justice,
communities surround
and contribute to both clients and offenders,
and, thereby, are capable of empathizing with both,
and are needed to resolve causes and effects of environmental trauma,
to actively respond to therapeutic needs of suffering clients.

In co-witnessing solidarity,
we discern how we might together restore polycultural outcome goals
through cooperative implementation plans,
with least competitive Win-Lose effort,
to improve Win-Win nutritional designs
of and by and for and with traumatized clients
longing to no longer know themselves as merely victims
of increasingly violent
and toxic
and distressed climates
and landscapes

Internal ego climates
and external economic-ecological landscapes
with improving multicultural celebration potential together,
away from punishing monocultural distresses

Toxically competitive Win-Lose strategies
suboptimize Win-Win intent and commitment
of both Restorative Justice Advocates
and Permacultural Designers,
witnessing in solidarity with clients
feeling like victims
of society’s desecrating sins past.

Our cooperative business plans
emerge from this same therapeutic desire
to become both producers and consumers
of deep and wide nutritional and nurturing
restoration of meaning,
of healthy sustainability,
of resonant regenerativity,
of polyphonically wide aesthetics,
and yet deeply polycultural ethics
of multi-paradigmatic polypaths

Living and speaking restorative ecojustice
in ego peace with profoundly interdependent Win-Win ecosystems
notnot Zero-Sum
Prime BiLateral Relationships,

Breathing in trusted Yang
to breathe out justifying YinYin,
wu-wei Tipping Points
from PermaCultural Design
through ReStoring EcoJustice Original Intent
toward Paradise UnCovered
to sacred humane producers and consumers
of ecological peace phylogeny outside
with ecopolitical health homology inside.

Restorative Justice is therapy for inside voices
while Permaculture Design has been ecotherapy for outside voices.
But all these voices express shared multicultural language
for healing past punishments and losses,
where Win-Win Paradise
invites gratitude
for cooperative therapeutic hands.

Threatened Organic Economies

“No federal agency should ever…declare war on any sector of our economy”

says EPA chief Scott Pruitt.

I wonder how uncomfortable Secretaries and Parents of Health and Human Services could be

with any Protection Agency

declaring war on all sectors of our human health ecology.

Patriotic Matriotism

Within tender vulnerable hearts
blossom loyal loves without,
so too
within grateful hearts
blossom honorable patriotism without
for a people of democratically cooperative integrity,
and also grace-filling sacred matriotism
for EarthTribes of domestic nutritional integration.

Both politically public sectors
and psychologically mindful
egoLeft-ecoRight conscious
private sectors,
intimate
vulnerable
and not for sale or rent
sectors of polycultural right
and monoculturing wrong
hubris,
fake patriotism
without loyalty to underlying multiculturing wombs
fostering healthy integrating
nurturing
nutritious matriotism.

LeftBrain competitive patriotism,
nationalistic,
is mere exterior hypocrisy
without also Elder Sacred RightBrain
cooperative matriotic
MotherEarth’s centering,
mindful,
egoLeft-ecoRight consciousness.

Vulnerable RightBrain spirits grow global polypathic love
as grateful LeftBrain dominant nations
regenerate Earth-patriotic matriarchal anthems,
love songs,
not just flags waving
but full-color solidarity banners dancing
with threaded bonds,
umbilical chords of harmonic rapture.

Why settle for merely patriotic nationalistic anthems
when we can sing multicultural love songs
of gratitude
for cooperative health-inducing EarthMother?
And Her honorable
grateful Daughters
and nobly patriotic Sons,
from generations past
for sacred regeneration futures
of deep learning
and cooperative bicameral listening.

Why do we RightWing pretend
our problems are lack of patriotism
when we both Left with Right Brains fly
through issues more cooperative
with underlying gratitude for Earth
gracefully paid forward?

Re-investing back
through (0)Sum timeless space
of positive equals notnot negative
spiraling

thermodynamic patriot-matriot balancing
secular/sacred
ego/eco-place.

Of and for bilateral consciousness
politically empowering/psychological flow of nurturing gratitude

Dearest Donald

Dear Donald,

I heard it said
it is your position
that reducing carbon emissions
and other climate therapeutic investments
are not a healthy US priority.

I also heard
it is your position
that the federal Environmental Protection Agency
is redundant,
and therefore also not a climate pathology therapeutic resource
on your national priority list.

I also heard
that Puerto Rico
and Florida
and Texas
might have benefited from more environmental protection
from the climate pathologies
that you would re-invest in nonrenewable environmental hazards
like oil fields rather than polyculturing yields,
and nationalistic patriotism
rather than Sacred EarthMatriotism.

Isn’t that a bit like
encouraging arsonists to burn during growing droughts
while also closing down the local Fire Station,
and calling that conflagration
what you had in mind
and relentlessly promised
when you ran as if for better economic government
through active abuse
where once we tolerated mere neglect?

I realize you are not an advocate for universal health and climate care.
Still
it seems we might find some healthier direction
than anti-health care and climate death bed delivery.

We are trying to adjust to lowered political
and educational
and civic
and moral
and health
and environmental therapeutic care,
but your current dive
to find the most toxic bottom line possible
is breath-taking.

Thanks so much
for constantly reminding us
what a great job you are doing.

It would otherwise
be so much more difficult to see
and smell
and feel
and hear
or in any way sense
anything beyond blundering
Business As Usual
mediocrity.

Probably your biggest fake-fan,

Gerald Oliver, EcoTherapeutic ReGenerative Designer

The Senior Center

The Senior Center was a beehive of active waiting
to die.

Bingo
but not ballroom dancing.

Knitting
but not garden expansions.

Physical therapy
but not yoga
and not chi gong,
much less mindful meditations
sung in four part harmony.

The new guy,
just growing into sixty-five,
asked them
How would we like to be remembered
one hundred years from now?

That doesn’t seem likely,
I know,
but perhaps more likely together
than playing Solitaire
side by side.

I would like to be remembered
as healers of The River
said a somber SeptemberGenerian woman
surrounded by ancient lady friends.

No one needed to ask why.
We all knew
what was coming downriver
for future regenerations
of thirsty toxined minds
with biodiverse bodies.

And so we found younger allies
who owned property along The River,
beginning with the railroad company,
and the Mohegans
and the Pequots,
where a Senior knew a Senior
with a well-placed daughter,
and sometimes a son
of unusual cooperative and long-term focus.

Together we planted firs
and cedars along polluted and denuded banks,
for future generations to manage,
harvest for housing
and furniture
and fiber
and possibly even coffins
waiting for memories of polluted rivers
to die.

That was one hundred years ago
we started
in this regenerative Senior Center,
and still going strong
as each year
a new incoming class
of those who finally reached sixty-five
joined our river healing project,
more recently also producing fruit trees
and berries,
flax
and hemp,
mushrooms
and nuts
and sweetgrass baskets
woven by SeptemberGenerians.

Women and a few surviving men
and some more in-between
smiling together
at the round cedar table in the back,
remembering Elder healers
of our barren land
and naked River.
