Dear Sue

Dear Sue,

I am remembering our strong negative responses
to the young woman who surreptitiously read
her aunt’s very private diary,
filled with vulnerable statements
of the most intimate nature
and transparently lusty spirit,

Yet, though secretive,
then took a bold black marker
and wrote vulgar, poisonous words
on most every previously locked and hidden page,

And yet, even here
she used her own judgmental inside voices
but wrote in her younger innocent brother’s hand.

We both found her choices highly distressing;
difficult to even read, imagine
squeamish to hear from a young niece perpetrator
or an old aunt victim.

I wonder if this is because we can empathize with both
the obstreperous and egocentric young, disturbed
with adult hidden and disruptively vulnerable agendas,
rebellions,
sometimes hedonistic
sometimes narcissistic,
usually both, back and forth
like yang then yin,
patriarchal power lust, then matriarchal depression
in response to chronic economic and political repression.

Do these actions,
intimate hidden self-disclosures
followed by a too yangishly adolescent monoculture’s mocking inspiration,
venomous uncaring,
toxically rapacious expressions,
aggressive actions and word choices,
with fully uncensored malicious intent,
speak to deep listening
yet camouflaged through deflection,
distraction,
political sleight of hand,
giving off responsibility to some,
most any, Other
our own wounded skeletons of silent memory?

Powers brought to a very exclusive co-arising table of one,
acting as a duplicitous two,
bipolar in passive-aggressive
depressive-manic responses
to surprising disclosures
of older, respected, staid hidden agendas
written by those we have truly loved
and hoped to continue loving
without remainder, reserve,
without this unexpected erupting hidden agenda
to protect ourselves from what feels creepy
too manic or paranoid,
smelling of hidden conspiracies
to express attraction
in ways deviant from our own proper expectations
for our own,
and Other’s, therapeutic integral behavior.

I thought of that wicked niece,
and our responses to her perfidy,
after a dream last night
in which Donald Trump
was writing curse words
with a bold black marker
in his dominant RightWing hand
all over his concrete wall

And then all over the original Jeffersonian Declaration
of Interdependence
away from white narcissistic,
patriarchal,
unenlightened royal privilege

And then Sorcerer’s Apprentice Trump
ruthlessly
blackly wrote dirty jingoisms on,
stabbing at,
our original Adams and Jeffersonian
compromised democratic constitution

Written with compassionate radical trust intention
trying to declare all creatures,
slave and free,
enlightened plants and planet,
equal in everyday enchanting dignity,
assuming great prosperity benefits of polycultural cooperative economies
internationally fertile,
valid,
effective for well-being
of all the people,
plants,
planet,

Still to this Trumpian day falling politically short,
still awaiting fulfillment
by those who can read and write more skillfully,
non-violently
less passive-aggressively,
less conspiratorially
less toxically enraged by WinLose multicultural losses
across the pages of our transparently democratic
yet divine
intent.

Anyway,
it seems we recognize this aversion to hidden narcissism
through empathy, cooperatively empassioned
in each other as a polypathic strength
strongly shared.

Thank you for speaking in solidarity
for a healthier, effluent ecofeminist affluent flow power
as we read across the pages of our own hopeful history books,

Still holding old school faith
found in each other’s passioned eyes and ears
and relentless spiritual-natural senses
of positive and negative and double-negative humors,
tumors benign and cancerous
rumors of magical queendoms
at our open liberal loving left hand,

Where agendas may be hidden
but not from shame or blame weapons
so much as reserved for our own tool-shaping pleasure
to disclose when and as we choose
and as our gifts for compassionate co-empathy
are most multiculturally needed,
exercised,
stretched toward optimally resonant
resilience for all people,
young nieces and old aunts certainly included,
and MotherTrees
and humbler passioned plants
and MotherLanded planet.

Trumpian Walls of Fear

In a land where campaign threats
have been recast as mandated promises,
where pathological divestments
are reinvented as healthy investments,
a green cry goes out

Historians,
please help us out here!
How did Mr. Hitler gain unilateral powers for war-mongering investments
of Germany?
Do I recall something about declaring a national emergency?

Which actually was an international emergency
of his own fascist leadership making

I wonder if there were any more Germans
foaming at the mouth to build a nationalistic wall of soldiers
and armaments,
paid for with their own cooperatively intended taxes
and regulatory fees
and blood
and tears lost
during loss of life
in World War One,
than is the U.S. case today

In the USA,
where compassionate boundary issues
have Trumpian infested all Green Commonsense,
that man-made social and language boundaries,
walls,
are economically and ecologically best resolved
through establishing more diversely rich robust webs
of economic/ecological cooperation,
humbly acknowledging we are all on Earth together
or about to tear Earth’s climates of health
monoculturally elitist apart.

White patriarchal fascism is a national emergency
already declaring narcissistic war on what’s left
of the U.S. and U.N. compassionate co-investments
in health care climates,
domestic and international,
internal and external,
personal and political,
economic and ecological.

The Slorax Speaks

The matriarchal deeper
and therefore slower growing Slorax
plants Truffula Trees,
restores justice to Her Earth’s unitarian community,
cooperatively owned and managed.

When excess harvests feed greed,
growing across monoculturing
less competitive
colonized fields
over-ruled by authorities to punish trees for non-compliance
with enslaving commercial needs
and commodified values of prison workers
measured in capital outgoing
against financial investments incoming per day,
per hour
per minute
per second of progress v loss of accumulated fiber value,

Then ecofeminist time has come
for unitarian yin reverse-hierarchies,
for cooperatively democratic
restorational healing,
for Earth-therapeutic
revolutionary Slorax to speak,
to cooperatively learn and educate,
to non-violently communicate,
to polyculturally plan
healthier,
ecologically recreative,
economic outcomes for all residents.

The Slorax worships Truffula forests,
where LeftBrain/RightWing deductive western dominance
justly balances
RightBrain/LeftWing eastern inductive prominence

As Yang revolts
returns
universally reweaves
toward yin’s warm-wombed unitarian compassion,

Then, as Now,
we embrace ancient nutritional Space
recreating bicameral Slorax WombTime,

As BreathFlow economizes nurturing Light
of and for thirsty Truffula forest hearts
and minds
and roots
toward future healthy multiculturing generations.

Wounded Passions

Starting this day
already seduced by full-color compassion,
with some competing-for-time distractions
in the more sadly usual recessive role,
raises wellness questions
with healthy co-passioning answers,
responsive responses more resiliently co-present
than pathological ego-manic fears
about my immediate physical future
and anger about our collective lack of compassionate history
and inclusive culture,
educational enrichments
and social norms
and active multiculturing values

Spreading virally across this
and every
compassioned day.

While finger shaping wounded daughter’s wild
African-American mane,
and walking hand in insecure hand
up our gravel driveway,
I flash back to last night’s conversation
with Freud on my left
lecturing Jung on my right
about his SuperEgo
driven by patriarchal compassion,

Which Jung felt was a soft oxymoron,
hidden as yin
on a bold sunny
war-mongering summer day,

While Freud moved on to his Id,
with LeftBrain dominant narcissism
but also, perhaps,
recessive matriarchal compassion
he had not recognized
while male embodied,

Which Jung co-passioned
Perhaps Freud’s Id resembles LaoTse’s bipolar narcissistic Yang Supremacy
headed for an Anima-flow fall
into co-passionate love,
if RightBrain compassionate feelings, of Jaynes,
and bilateral thoughts, of De Bono,
could ever find enough compassion together
to grow more holistic integrity
of positive therapeutic co-passions,

While Freud had returned front and center
to egocentric narcissism

Which Jung felt speaking Yang
to co-passionate listening Yin,
Animus
with dipolar co-arising AnimaFlow

Sometimes enchanted with positively resonant swells
and sometimes negatively distracted
by dissonant
distant
repressed
suppressed
unimpressed valleys

Dips in resilient positive communication trends
disturbed by dissonant negative resistance
of LeftBrain Animus narcotics,
narcissism,
colonialism
patriarchalism
sexism
racism,
fears about missing out on future healthy regenerations
and anger about having lost Animus with Anima
resilient co-passion.

Meanwhile,
Freud went back to his ongoing compassionate conversation
with his Jungian Anima RightBrain SuperEgo-Eco self.

Funny,
wild tangled communication potential
shaping into something more than too-aggressive pulling
and shoving
and shouting
rather than hand in wounded hand co-passion
on her AnimaMundi way
into a cooperative SuperEgo and competitive Id
ambivalent classroom,

Preaching Freudian SuperEgo resilience of compassion
but, like obedient capital-trained LeftBrain economists
and parents
and teachers,
and Yangish evangelistic preachers,
mentoring rather too much ego-manic
narcissistic powers to over-rule
where positive ego/eco-passions could mutually arise
healthier
wealthier futures of Earth compassion,
breathing in
and out again
the wounded polypathic same.

Listening for Small Voices

Listen…
Can you hear these silently listening voices too?

Listening souls
old and yet not born
inside
outside resounding Earth’s fertile proclamations

Present voices
remembered from communal past choices
personal, yet political,
economic,
yet ecological

Waiting for health,
usually patient,
underneath domestic inside sounds:
music
quiet steps
graceful and shuffling

Behind the running furnace,
refrigerator,
electric lights murmuring,
timers of more important waiting, then ringing, alarmed

All souls listening
before yet born
through long long gone before
and after timeless omnipresent now

Patient for our notice
for their turn
in communion’s recycling microphone
outside life’s active memory
of voices kind
generous as MotherTrees
nurturing nutrition
welcoming

A few more impatient
judgmental
disassociating
yet loyal
concerned
challenging
caustic
toxic angers
fears
festering hatreds
spoiling hope for quick and cheap consensus

Yet invested, infested
all
together
in health listening
here
now
in this healing soul place
this communion’s speaking time
for hearing
sharing
baring
wearing
caring
daring
occasionally too blaring
voices seeking harmonies
across space
in this well souled healing time.

Listen…
Can you hear them singing
ringing too?

This AllSouls Choir
speaking sacred sounds
of secular past
predicting holy futures

Listening together
for what we have become
and to whom we hope to hear
together

Listen,
can you hear AllSoul voices too?

Hopeful
Faithful
Love
speaking graceful undertones
background sounds, tunes
waiting
acting
performing
adoring
declaring
marrying
divorcing
remorsing
amusing Voices listening
while others speak
Peak
then fade
shade
shadow

Souls listening yet
and not yet

Listening…
Can you hear us revolving too?
Spinning from non-sectarian here
toward sacred there…

Listening
for our anthem’s well-souled turn
to give good and proper verse
voice
choice
to listen again
still
not yet
not yet quite fully heard

All souls listening
almost
together

Again
can you hear us
large and small
close and distant?

Poured out
self-anointed
too late for shy doubt,
all viral souls

Listening, at last,
to hear you too
at fullest blast.

Cooperative StoryListening Proposal

I would like to hear and see
how and why you live,
when and where you prefer to die,

I would like to touch and taste
who and what you think and feel
is your greenest dreamed sanctuary
without imagined ultra-violet capital limits
and with secured and sufficient communion
for your most economic
and political
and ecological
and theologically robust lifeline.

This future HealthSanctuary Search
is for any visionary who might want to live personally and politically
more ecologically downscale
and slow-grown organic reorganization
and less economically patriarchal dependent-scaled
and fast-grown violent
stressing
and straining military-industrial mobilization.

This Sanctuary Search
is for those longing for communion ecologies,
more than eulogies,
although both can be good and left and right
appropriate to inside ego theologies
of healthy pruning gods
and nurturing goddesses reunited
reweaving LeftYang and RightYin transubstantiating fabrics
speaking reductive Earth
within universally inductive Heavens,
icons of sacred hybrid spacetime in-between
journeys toward HealthTipping Sanctuary’s
multicultural destinies.

For individuals and families,
WinWin naively young
on through resilient Wise GreeningElders,
longing for organic community wanna-be permacultural gardeners
longing for ego- and eco-therapeutic Home Schools
for positive energy democratic education
and green advocate cultural re-education,
and longing for RightBrain dominant creators,
activists,
designers,
sculptors,
story-tellers and listeners and followers and bloggers and sloggers,
musicians,
dancers,
ShoutOut comedians and rappers,
spacetime occupiers

Belonging to Green Sanctuary Movements,
locally egoed
and globally ecoed
with revolutionary room enough even for a drama queen or two
or even more,
practicing turn-taking and divine listening,
then speaking queenly green.

Sanctuary for preachers and teachers
and parents who prefer to childlike listen
and practice non-violent communication apprenticeships
perpetually being
and coincidentally doing
and cooperatively non-violent growing
WinWin green ecological economic Sanctuary CovenantShips
and pedestrian restoring rituals.

Then, after listing and listening
to your future sanctuary dreams,
I would like to help us together incarnate
green cooperative households
and gardens,
urban through rural farms filled with mutual home-holders
enjoying Earth’s outdoor green Sanctuary Cafe
with open mic nights and days
producing positive energy podcasts,
liturgical nutritional broadcasts
of healthy green sanctuary plants
with WinWin networking
root restoring systems,
eco-centrically wealthy
green listening casts
celebrating EarthHealth SpeakOut Sanctuaries,
earthy sanctity

Periodically proposing locally grown rituals
cooperatively thought and felt and imagined
Called out global green.

I would like to hear and see
how and why we live most robustly
in-between when Earth
and Heaven where
EarthTribe prefers to never die.

Therapeutic Revolutions

You mentioned you work with a therapist.

Has she encouraged you to incorporate centering exercises
and holistic thinking and feeling experiences
healing interior and exterior nondualistic climate events
in your everyday thinking/feeling habitual non-violent practice?

Has she encouraged you to disclose what you can realistically pray for
while making and selling automatic rifles?
And living cooperatively with those who choose to profit
in this terrorizing way?

You mean those tedious bicameral bilateral practices
like tai chi and yoga,
drumming while singing
and whistling
and laughing
and tweeting
or something wild like that?

I suppose I might,
although none of those are in my own daily repertoire
against depression
and climate crisis anxiety,
and an already compromised critical immune system.

Have you tried any of these holistic things
your therapist has suggested,
or not,
perhaps in passing
or passing by,
as alternative supplements to your talk therapy?
Has she suggested walking on the beach
and through forests,
and over and back down mountain trails,
tracking rivers flowing up and down,
circling around lakes rising and falling,
down competitive MainStreets
and up more cooperatively communalized by-streets
with under-capitalized
organic communioned
community eco-school gardens?

I don’t recall anything quite so athletic
or communal
or…
I don’t know…
something about a PolyCultural DNA EcoCommons?

With your ADHD,
your high YHWH revenge-climate crisis anxiety,
your non-violent cooperative feminist
reverse-hierarchical solidarity philosophy,

And with your chronic depression,
disassociating repression,
ecopolitical suppression,
invited by LeftBrain dominant paranoid
narcissistic
self-justifying Yang v Yin concerns,
your mindbody might prefer bipedal
as well as bicameral
centering exercises
you can do every enchanting day
whether walking through a forest,
with or without peer therapists being-doing
walking non-violently while talking
as you walk from one room to the other
and up and down ancient stairs to nowhere/everywhere
inside your own home
and other divinely inspired green-potential sanctuaries.

I don’t think I can talk green and meditate ultra-nonviolet
simultaneously
coincidentally
even in a sanctuary.

It’s more like non-violent walking and talking
and ultra-nonviolet medicating
at the same time,
like thinking with your LeftBrain and right-dominant foot
while feeling-listening with your Right CooperativeBrain
and left-prominent foot
reverse backward through time’s history,
then upstream forward
into EarthTribe’s healthier green-shared future Commons.

I’m not sure I even trust that such a risk-management practice
would be a loyal
and patriotic
and faithful thing to do
and think
and/or feel.

Too startling,
revolutionary,
to just deductively think about 2020 polypathic vision,

Too dissonant against BusinessAsUsual
LeftBrain competitions between think dominating felt
RightBrain response to LeftBrain oppressive
non-organic
mechanistic system thinking
disassociating from RightBrain feels discerning harmonies of pace
and cooperative/dissonant hue,
and climate cry
and spiral walking through and by
doing being
saying seeing.

Yet if your LeftBrain does choose to reconsider,
all thoughts include implicit healing feelings
as all feelings, resonant or dissonant and in-between,
re-associate with LeftBrain conservational
conversational deductive/inductive balance
of natural/spiritual healthy thoughts with feelings,

While right foot follows left
following right
through each day’s inside and outside
ego- and eco-therapeutic journey
through life and death
between cooperative natural breath
and communal spiritual death, release reverse

Right foot forward into life
Left foot backward
into RightBrain’s sacred regenerate passage of timeless
journeying back through all past incarnate imaged lives

Patriarchal Right forward
and matriarchal Left reverse-hierarchical Time
co-governing pace through slowing our RightBrainBody
green organic herstory
integrative
synergetic
communal
negentropic timeless
run-on empty sentences
composed of re-associative double-binding phrases
like the sound of one foot not not walking

Perhaps I could feel called
to walk some small part
of this bipedal bicameral health journey.

But, how do you know when it is time to stop
and get on with your competitive egocentric day?

I’m not LeftBrain sure how I know
when to stop walking this pilgrimage
into cooperative WinWin.
I wake up each morning
more happily determined
to walk and talk in bicameral solidarity
until we have all found this healthy being Right
is doing Left journey
we were good-faith organically born to look for
and cooperatively expect
communally respect
polypathically request
of each EarthTribe
sacred eco-schooling
deep learning
OtherEmpathy

As therapeutically taught
by MotherEarth EcoRevolution School.
