Alone Not Lonely

Wanting to not be alone
is not always the same
as wanting to speak with someone.

Sometimes
being with someone
also feels like being here
and listening now
nurturing source for each Other,

Non-coincidental Me
evolving toward
co-incident WeView identity

Sometimes in fear
and sometimes in courageous curiosity,
in sickness and in health,
in serious doubt
and in playful dialogue,
in physical troubles and in spiritual wealth,
in competition and in cooperation,
in silence and within chatty talk therapy,
in separation and in synergy,
in solitude
and in compassionate solidarity

Wanting to not be alone
and yet needing to deeply listen
for emerging peace.

Forgiveness

Forgiveness,
like trust
and repentance
and the salvation of heroes
slowly getting back up,

Forgiveness,
of Other
and others
and self,

Forgiving
is not instant,
like a package of oatmeal
or grits,
because growing
and regrowing trust
is a process,
like growing flowers,
blossoming in their
and our own
best time for resilience,
regeneration,
restoring beauty
and peace

Forgiveness,
like repentance
and the win/win salvation of souls,
isn’t all or nothing,
except in those climatic moments
of anger,
when it is nothing,
and except in those climatic moments
of joy,
when it is all

When we are fully engaged
in trusting this place
investing this time
within win/win EarthTribe
mundane sacramental life

Just right
for getting back up

What’s left
for giving Other
yet another chance
to not screw us up.

On Cooperative Condos

Condos are not Cooperatives,
he was quick to deduce,
reduce compassionate opportunity
to democratic annual voting duty.

But, both are co-investments
in residential
and/or commercial property,
preferably humane infestments
with exterior roofs
and walls
and windows
and doors
and halls
and floors,
she responded
all residual night
and most the residential day.

But who’s in charge
inside my space?

And wouldn’t it be nice,
she responds with grace,

If we invite each Other
to partner with We
in our cooperative journey,
as called
and able,
to invest in residents
without competing worries

Free to sing and dance,
jazz and rock
and rollerskate,
cook
and possibly clean
up outside together

Depending on the weather

Cooperatively free
to pick up the outside trashy
recycling depository
now looking kinda’ nasty

Like a neglected laboratory

While we run and walk right by
feelin’ fly
on our way in to organic networking gardens
with and without compost buckets

Children playing composite cooperative
deep nature
nurturing outside classroom education

Learning nonviolent communication
across multicultural demonstrations
of multigenerational cooperative intent
to reduce restrictive Othering,

Without claustrophobic smothering
of those who co-invest with us,
wild natured
and mild spirited,
in this condo place and time
where cooperative communication
is our culture,

To economically
and politically
and socially
and psychologically
and ecologically nurture,
as cooperatively desired
but never autocratically required.

History Lessons

Victims of Straight
White
Patriarchal History
are usually not hopelessly unenlightened
and permanently disabled

Ostracized by Self
and/or Others
from healthy democratic
co-redemptionVictims of Straight
White

Baptized
and medicated
and meditated
into Truth seeking Beauty,
Sacred Voices seeking Secular Choices
reflecting cooperative EarthTribe’s
most win/win integral
indigenous Wisdom.

The unStraight
unWhite
unMale
are not unPeople
living outside touchable
tangibly co-invested
co-operatively healthy
wealthy society.

We have always been inside
Earth’s natural/spiritual mind
nondualistically embodied
economic
and political structure

Which co-created us
democratic
co-passionate communicators
from past regenerations
toward future generations
seeking wealth-optimizing cooperative health.

Our co-empowering solution
to emotional and cognitive apartheid
is not always forced to colonize vulnerable prey
for failure to rise
to some self-empowered
top OnePercent

Overpowering those Others
deaf,
blind,
and voiceless
in superstructures
of echoing monocultural oppression
suppression
negative repression
rather than positive impression;
anxiety defeating anticipation.

Healthier democratic resolutions
can transform win/lose competitions
into win/win cooperative social structures
as We The EnLightened People
of democratic compassion
become organically organized beings
within our health wealthing
EarthCentric Tribes.

Such environmentally transcendent transformation
does disempower StraightWhiteMonoCultural privileged
monochromatic views
of monotheistic
autocratic
secularizing Purpose

Divorced from sacred democratic Meaning,
attenuating resilience
and resonance
with marginalizing
disenabling
institutionalizing
consumptive
dysfunctional
predative colonizing intent
of Might Makes MonoCulturing Right
for anthrosupremacists.

A StraightWhitePatriarchal capitalist
consumer model of historical education
assuming monotheistic
“From Above”
autocratic powers for controlling communication
cannot peacefully
or therapeutically
or justly
or sacramentally
avoid a co-passionate threat
to healthy co-producers

Wealthing positive deviant ecofeminists
leading organic EarthTribe
with unrelentingly curious
co-gravitating
co-arising
dipolar nonpartisan solidarity

Wealth Against Tyranny

Prized poets
gathered to discuss

On the side,
just between us,

Global Marxist tyranny
against our humane families
not quite so resiliently flush.

Truth is bicameral
co-passionately advocating
EarthPeace revolutions,
right now resolutions
in a nonviolently noetic
poetic rush

To make active EarthHealth love;
not so much
a reactive greedy gush

Of violently overpowering
disenfranchising war
waged in Othering
smothering madness mush

Not healthy for children
or wealthy for women
or compassionate men
who recall how to blush.

Tasty Democratic Health

Tasty democratic roots
are made of trusted vines

Healthy democracy
does not chronically debate
derail indigenous theocracy
diminish pursuit of individual liberty
to co-invest in political
and religious
and sexual powers
of cooperatively focused light
polyphonic harmony

But does compassionately refine
individual human freedoms
to do whatever successful private investors
and elite asset owners
can easily afford to self-define
anthro-divine

To monoculturally become
whomever the almighty
divinely White privileged
CAPITAL monotheistic
LeftBrain PATRIARCHALLY empowered,

but not bicamerally
democratically enlightened,

individual wants to self-righteously
hoarding ego-infested,
mistrust conserving
secularizing
formerly sacred regenerativity
including ecofeminist Gaian goddesses

Indigenous wisdom
of cooperatively owned
and managed Gaian EarthMother experience
valuing healthy wealth
of abundant co-inhabiting care.

A healthy democratic co-investor
does not aspire
toward merely individual capital
exclusively growing wealthy
ego autocracy,
monotheistic plutocracy
retributively punishing kleptocracy
fallen educational consumers
of ignorantly de-contextualized pedagogy
miseducating for further patriarchal supremacy

Heading toward further scarcity
of capital wealth
hoarding plutocracy
anti-global organic health care,
planetary climate wealth share.

But a resiliently healthy
multiculturally trusting compassion,
liberally liberated from egocentrism,
from RightWing anthrosupremacy,
from fantasies of omnipotent capacity
to avoid natural organic suppressions
of all those actively distrusted
increasingly polarized Others

Win/Lose competing
rather than Win/Win cooperating
to establish universal power,
unitarian light,
and Yang/Yintegral democratic energy

Polypathic restraints
against competing for monopolies
over-invested in stock-infested cash
against Earth’s sacred
natural/spiritual/physical/mental
cooperative trusting health

Harmonic wealth subclimates
of richly regenerative
bipartisan trusted
economic ecosystemic brilliant light
politically empowering
HealthTrust co-governing
EarthJust restorative resources

Refined by Earth’s historical experience
sprouting tasty democratic wealthy roots
made of regenerating healthy vines.

Integrity’s AnaLogical Powers

My roots of humane dignity
seem truest found
in organic life integrity.

So too, roots of social liberty for all
listening empathetically
seem most harmonically embedded
in Earth’s co-gravitating ball

Of health power
multicultural
for expanding polycultural
co-passions

Roots and Blossoms

Earth’s organic systems wonder
if both of these could be true:

Poverty and ignorance breed violence.
Capitalism and patriarchalism feed conflict.

If so,
is the first
or the second
history’s enculturing root system?

And is the Other
our competitively threatening
viral blossom of oppression?

And EarthMother wonders
if natural empowering
is also spiritual enlightening
cooperative Wisdom
inviting humane peace,
less dissonant debate praxis
preferring to invest
in more resilient dialogue practice
instead.

In dialogue with Monica Sharma’s “Radical Transformational Leadership: Strategic Action for Change Agents,” p. 13.

UnVoiced Questions

S/he wonders why
when we breathe in
our left sides
feel right mind dominant
when our rights inside
feel LeftBrain capital deviated,

Dysfunctional
disappointing
disharmonious
sad and lonely
dissonant
disturbed
unbalanced
uneased

Constipated
blocked
trumped

Stuck
obstructed
oppressed
suppressed
repressed
not fluently holistically impressed,

Pressured
disabled
disenabled
feminized
marginalized
enslaved
disempowered

Unenlightened
unarticulated
not understanding
not cooperatively experiencing
co-investing in questioning

Why we continue longing
for bicameral win/win engagement
of all our leisurely
peaceful
integral senses

And yet yearn
for vicarious entertainment
without discernable killing Time
guilt for giving up
on Earth health
restoring just systems

Losing out
on holistic Ego inside
Eco-outside Other
stereophonic redundancy
reiteration
remembering
reconnecting
religioning
reimagining

Feedback and forth
in-between engaging Others
entertaining Ego’s vacationing musical
sometimes vocational whimsical

Sometimes multi-sexual,
sometimes inter-religious,
sometimes eco-political,
sometimes co-invested

Yet unspoken
lyrically right spaced
and left lined
healthy mind
mined
mimed
mused questions.

S/he also wonders why
LeftBrain dominant monoculturalism,
like warring monopolies
and terrifying angry monotheism
and fear of His unfeeling monotony
and mono-monied values
sound like madness marching
in vicious politicized squares

While RightMind prominent S/He polycultures
feel polypathically polymathic
virtuous ecological recircling potential
and polyvagal music rivered
polyphonic inside shivered
energetic peace duo-potency

Not so much at war
dueling impotency.

S/he questions
If thick and robust LeftBrain engagement
could not possibly become
more stereophonically peaceful,
reiteratively co-passionate
RightMind communal,

Yet intimately at rest,
vicariously imagined
EarthCentric reality remembered
resilient

Entertainments,
vacations,
Healthy-Happy Holidays,

BiLateral questions
ego/eco-systemic communications,

ReCreative
BiCameral consciousness
of co-operating primacy
for peaceful co-relationship

S/he wonders
if her RightMind co-relational primacy
deeply listens for
and widely speaks of
his LeftBrain dominant Ego
capitalized AnthroSupremacy

When wiser win/win dialogue
degenerates
into win/lose debate
between healthy
cooperative
engaging Her not-not questions
and wealthy
competitions with HiStory
entertaining co-passionate Him
positive bicultural answers.

S/he wonders
if sometimes,
and perhaps always,
the opposite of peaceful integrity
is aggressive loneliness.
