Blackest Fragile Friday

Black Friday,
iconic of Climate Fragility,
is designed to transition retail
from red
to black
end of year balance sheets.

Black Friday
is black
from a competitive corporate perspective.

What feels too seldom noticed,
This capital-acquisition game
is played with ZeroSum win/lose assumptions:

Retail corporations
are more likely to go richly black
as consumer households,
especially marginally surviving households,
urban apartheid neighborhoods,
rural failing family farms,
reach into shallowing pockets
to risk red indebted shortfall,
unhoused lack of holds.

To align our ecopolitical color scheme,
black incorporated economic privilege
is fed by red consumer fragility
as white political privilege
feeds on black and brown
and cooperative rainbow fragility.

One of the ways
we can remember this color scheme,
no paranoid pun intended,
is through a song,

Red and yellow,
black and white,
these are diversely precious
in His Straight White Male sight

ReIncorporated Capital-Infested God
loves all consumers
of the NonZeroSum WinWin
global market world.

This version suffers
from unlyrical challenges,
yet it still has a Black Friday ring
to cash re-registering around us.

The title of this song escapes me,
Was it
He’s Got the Whole World in His Corporation
or Shop Til We Drop?

The squirrels must think we’re nuts,
especially on Black Friday.


Complex Causes

Do you believe racism and colonialism,
and maybe corporatism and LeftBrain dominance,
are coincidental,
causally related,
or co-arising?

If causal, which is cause
and which is effect?

Do you believe political and economic values/disvalues
are coincidental,
causally related,
or co-arising?
If caused,
which is cause
and which is effect?
Which form of empowering/disempowering investment
takes first position?

Do you believe contagious hate
and destructive predation
are coincidental,
causally related,
and/or co-arising?
If caused, which is cause
and which effect?
Which came first?

Do you believe masculine
and feminine
are coincidental,
causally related,
and/or co-arising?
If caused, which is cause
and which effect?
Which comes as first trimester
delineating DNA default?

Do you believe living
and dying
are coincidental,
causally related,
and/or co-arising?
If cause-effect interdependent,
which is currently causal for you
and which is dipolar effect?
Which comes first
for you
and for all sentient beings?

Do you believe transcendent becoming
and immanent being
are coincidental,
causally related,
and/or co-arising?
If cause/effectively interdependent,
which is primary
and which is secondary
for you
and for all sentient beings?

Do you believe compassionate communication
and healthy relationship
are coincidental,
causally related,
and/or co-arising?
If cause and effect,
which is cause
and which is effect
and which came first for you?

Do you believe regenerative health
and degenerative loss
are coincidental,
causally related,
and/or co-arising?

Double-twining emergence of dipolar appositions,
where once lived left-brain bipolar oppositions,
both-and positive and negatives,
where once lived either LeftHealth
or RightPathology trends,
Elite and NonElite
days and months and seasons
of individuals
and homes
and species
and habitats
and revolving
regenerative more than degenerative
win/win living Earth

Composed of daylight predators
and nightmare dreaming prey,
yang overpowering yin,
left and right political
and social
and economic
and ecological wings
and hearts
and minds
and reproductive systems
for soaring up and down
out and in
breathing regeneratively in,
degeneratively out

If unidirectionally causing changing life
without static death,
then which is cause and which effect?
Which comes first?
For an egosystem;
for an ecosystem;
for an holonic ego
within a robust
re/de-generative system;
for an interdependent ego/eco climate web
of life becoming love’s healthiest communion.


Invoking Unfinished GodEssences

My autonomous ego’s life
feels unfinishable,
unthinkably mortal in future disconnection;
an unfinished compassion life,
unfinishable love,
an unpolished divine icon
of Earth’s self-promulgating creation,
becoming more articulately interdependent folks,
intersectional resacralizing populations,
self and other co-empowering creolization processors,
north-western left hemisphere’s historic win/lose secularization.

our Gaian EarthMothers,
south past and eastern-future angelically co-present
Great Transition Troubadours
forever deepening sacred icons,
intersectional emissaries,
polypathic and polyphonic,
sacred MotherEarth becoming metaphorically global webbed,
rewoven away from left-hemisphere fashioned dualisms
of secularizing sacred both/and unity,
humanizing divine communion,
every day sanctuaried love-life,

Where pathological egocentric death
reconnects with healthy long-term compassionate communication
co-empathic communal deep listening
to learn nondualistic grief/gratitude re-education trends
bilaterally co-arising
unfinished articulation
still dynamically emanating
from unfinishable life
within Mother/Father EarthTribal His/HerStory.


Strong Health Defense

Avoiding risk
is not always the best way to feed
and assertively, but not overbearingly, water
resilient opportunities.

is not always the best way to build
resilient ecofeminist cooperative opportunities.

It may too often be exclaimed,
“The best offense
is a strong defense.”

Defensive strategies
begin to look remarkably aggressive,
even left-brain overbearingly offensive.

I don’t recall the reverse claim,
“The best defense
is an affluent
effluent offense.”

Probably because this is not necessarily true
to resiliently healthy experience.
Mosquito repellent bracelets
seem more sustainably effective
than bombing my entire lot
in predator/prey life
with toxic insecticide.

And yet,
I’m not sure that the more popular aphorism
is any more true or false.

The most resilient and powerful defense
against suffering and loss,
against climates of pathology,
already feels too self-isolating
lacking in healthy robust curiosity,
too anti-degenerative
to actively regenerate hope
and cooperative faith
and win/win co-passion
and gratitude
for courage to face new frontiers of awareness
with those
and that
now less known,
less connected,
less resiliently
resonantly etched into our global gratitude
attitude experience.

If we were to re-image offensive strategies
to grow win/win economic/political gratitude
as Yang-strength,
mutually empowering;

And, Yin-effluent flow
as defensive ecofeminist opportunities,
invitations to ease off the left-brain dominant
either/or thinking
enculturing win/lose
inflaming gas,
We might find ourselves with feminists
resisting patriarchal extraction histories
predicting only future Loser economics
and Loser ecological disempowerment
of otherwise healthy robust futures,
Yang-offensive and Yin-defensive balance.

But, resistance without resilient win/win offensives
does not effectively balance our tipping point
double-bound offensive/defensive optimization,
inviting us toward cooperatively-held articulate
resilient healthy purpose,
robustly wealthy sacred meaning
experiencing Yang-health
as Yin beauty-wealth,

Universal offense-wealth
as unitarian defense,
slow-grown communal
ego-political win/win integrity;
healthy-wealth optimization,
right-brain prominent enculturation,
resilient both-offense-and-defense resonance.

A frog in a patriarchal well
does not know the great ecofeminist sea.


Fears of Abandonment

I feel you need
and want me less
than I need
and want you,
and like you,
or how about exclusively
curiously love you?
adult with mature adult,
embracing EarthTribe perennial invitation
into nutritious co-habitation.

And yet I fear
we both would rather invest ourselves
in most any distraction,
idle gossip,
idol worship,
other than this sacramental relationship
of me with
and for you,
and you
with and for me.

Not despite all our decades
of competing foolishness,
but learning together through all our beat down
hidden longings
to feel safe daily respite;
to feed sacred partnered
sanctuary feelings,
covenanted thoughts

Of epic everyday co-investors
with no sacred or secular,
divine or profane assets
held in dualistic
disassociated reserve,
just in case life doesn’t work out safely together
better than unsafely apart.

When sacred love conquers all defensive fears
and secular competitions in anger
overwhelm needy greed
and selfish envy
with transparent invitation,

When daily love rules not just left-brain corporate commodity identities
but also pervades our cooperative right-brain sanctuary
of primal relationship feelings,
deep learning connection,
compassionate attachment,

Then our mutual root system
and garden,
our forest of emotions,
our home plate defensive motions,
our core incorporations
for not abandoning compassionate Earth
as we know and love
all Her multiculturing incarnations
of co-empathic relations
further refine Golden Rules and Ratios,

Health-passion, slow-grown
co-arising emergent ecstasies,
co-gravity emoting climax,
epic wonder,
awesome win/win integrity.

Feeling cooperatively needed
through slow-grown nurturing ego/ecosystems
mutually-held invitations
to love all EarthTribes,
life forms
as EarthMother has win/win loved you
and me,

All Souls of regenerations past,


Talk of the Town

Luther Vandross recorded a song
that says something like
“We had the best love around…
We were the talk of the town.”

I can’t think of the last time
a greatly famous and resilient love affair
was the talk of even TinselTown;
and certainly not New York,…
maybe Paris?
Hong Kong?
Too Western commercialized, I fear;

Shoot em up
Mow em down

I would love to see and hear the day
I open up my YahooNews
and every viral video window is about resilient compassion,

How passionately the Trump family
comports their compassion together,
transparent and vulnerable,
courageous and curious,
intent on serving Earth’s subclimates
seeking resilient health empowerment.

Maybe a side bar
about how the Pelosi and Trump extended multicultural kin
hang out,
karaoke and canoe together,
share gardening tools,
tell each other scary climate holocaust stories
while circled around a bonfire of un-vanities,
comforted by twinkling stars
and a predictably waning and waxing ecology
of moon enlightenment.

Jesus said,
or maybe it was Paul,
but some patriarchal and powerful
and passionate person,
That followers of Christ’s messianic redemptive way
would be known by their amazing talk
of the town, counter-monocultural,
love for each other,
and Earth’s natural/spiritual beauty.

So, maybe Mahatma Gandhi was right,
alternative compassionate win/win Christian community
is a fine non-violent communication
compassionate idea,
messianically bodhisattva suffering servant designed,
but not yet fully implemented,

Or at least not enough
to fill all these little YahooNews viral windows
with visions of great loves,
like Superman and Lois Lane
or maybe even Barack and Michele
and their kids,
and their kids,
and their health wealthy kids.

It would be grand
to share a planet
with others addicted only to great miulticultural love stories
of communion,
epic tales of cooperative political economies,
co-messiahs of healthy wealth
offering each other a full-bodied minded polypathic hug
rather than the mistrusting
right hand dominant shake up
and shake down
of competitive capitalistic
win/lose monopolistic

I long for a compassionate multi-pathic EarthTribe
including Christian evangelists
for God’s creative Kingdom at left
and right co-passionate hand,

And Islamic FatherSun benevolently hospitable
and grateful
for radical global Win/Win communion economies
built out of mutual cooperative trust
and not national competitive narcissism
in mutual disinterest
and denialism
and nihilism,
and secular-Earth/sacred-Heaven dualism.

begets colonialism,
not mutually cooperative investment
in health
and wealthy creolizing beauty hugs.

Commodification of Earth
begets further mistrusting handshakes,
automated mass shootings
of potentially viral health allies,
great loves,

As colonial win/lose evolution models
develop inevitable lose/lose climate run down
run away
get the hell out of here pathologies
of depression and despair,
great longing for epic EarthLovers to return
becomes the talk of our global village,
turning Left interdependent side up
and Right fragmenting national egotism’s autonomy down

Probably right after singing Imagine
a world committed to restoring peace
and great international epic EarthLove stories,
mutual communion passions
to never again think of health vocations
as other than wealth of global village purpose
and resilience of ethological
ecological meaning
as both nothing and everything
beyond health of GreatLove’s everyday ZeroZone experience,

Whether the talk of my town
and your town
or merely the shadow of a wistful smile
while turning off the too early morning alarm
announcing yet another day of longing
for more co-invested compassion
while singing and dancing Imagine

Less military-industrialized lack of emotional intelligence,
less capital colonizing commodifying
our own potential health integrity
of great and wondrous ego/eco-relationships,
healthy natural space
for wealthy organic time.


Fundamental Choice

You can’t love what
and whom
you don’t know.

you can choose,
become used to,
become heavily invested in,
become committed to,
then become addicted to hating whatever
and whomever
you don’t yet know
with cognitive and emotive intelligence.

Especially if no know-one listened
and learned you better
