New MLK Day Revolutions

I have heard almost nothing about New Year Resolutions
this pandemic year;

Although personal sound waves are filled
replete with incomplete invitations
to take better health care
of personal
and social
and economic
and democratic
and public
and green climate nonviolent communication
wealth optimization

As we move post-millennially
and relentlessly,
perhaps as inevitably
as any self-fulfilling NewYear resolute expectation,
standing win/win apart
from ambiguous anticipation thoughts
with anxious feelings,
foreboding fore-tidings,
Right/Left
affective/cognitive dissonance;
fading resonance.

I have,
in this last pre-MLK week,
noticed an upsurge in human striving voices
invoking dark,
globally embarrassing, humor
and gratitude
for President BullHorn
for straight white male persuading
large majorities of Earth’s citizens,
red and green and yellow and orange,
black and mostly white patriarchally privileged
LeftBrain violently red dominant
RightWing wounded and terrifying,

To NewYear discontinue an elitist direction
we don’t want to continue pursuing,
extracting without explicitly agreeing
to democratically forego our constitutional commitment
to a healthy resilient multicultural republic
both polyculturally healthy and safe
for now,
and for all foreseeable future regenerations.

Many 2020s new year roaring revolution voices
seem to assume liberal v conservative choices
are limited to:
If one is good
then the other is bad,
opposites;

Appositionally,
demonstrably,
comparatively,
even consensually,
recognized as not true to personal
politically co-invested democratic experience
when we are discussing liberally loving
healthy
cooperative communication
and conservatively co-investing
in globally resilient public health
and climate WholeEarth safety.

Liberal left wings
and conservation right winged,
and all of us who faithfully remain
middling muddling in-between,
resolve closer to consensually green healing
than viral and climatic punishing pandemics,
ego-inside and eco-outside
our bilaterally integral sensory bodies,

We are
and often are not
re-transitionally resolved
for personal health
and/or public ecopolitical safety
sacredly cooperative Vocations.

When I feel healthiest and safest,
in this another new year,
in this early decade of Roaring BullHorn 20s,
is when I step outside
to listen for voices
of disenfranchised trees,
scolding squirrels,
babbling brooks,
rippling rivers,
surfing seas,
light conversations
between blue sky and cirrus clouds,
rain on rocks and rolling thunder
anthems

Sung in response to my questions
about what is healthy liberal YangLight
and conservative YintegrityPower?

And what is more Trumpian
nationalist
elitist Republican
pathological would-be autocratic fascism,
worship of richly narcissistic wounded
persons of exorbitant interest,
punishing power,
uninformed dissonant delusions,

Where StraightWhiteMale privileged
capitalist corporate minds
have falsely advertised resilient
and resonant bicameral fortunes
toward nationalistic
militaristic extractive wealth,
not so much durably thriving health
and safety through defensive win/lose strategies
strong pro-active
non-connective
violent colonizing aggressions
for mutual lose/lose
predator/prey assured destruction.

Sometimes Earth’s January voices
seem to predict
and celebrate
full climaxing
resiliently thriving healthy wealth.

Sometimes they warn of wounded and broken
personal and public,
social and political
and economic monocultural
non-MLK celebratory pathology.

But,
most of this NewYear resolving time,
especially when I’m working on MLK-Era
Revolutionary Green Resolutions
for restoring Ego/Earth-balancing Justice,
and WholeEarth Multiculturing Peace,
these nature/spirit,
inside/outside,
ego/eco-voices ignore my quests for wise discernment
because egocentric questions,
provided by past memories and future imagination,
are unworthy of macro-ecosystemic attention.

If the only choice I offer is:
“Should I live in a toxic,
fossil-fuel burning condo
or in a toxic,
fuel-burning trailer park?”

Why would such ancient god and goddess voices
and smells,
sounds and senses,
respond to these unintended wounds
and win/lose competitive broken messes?

Asking for less than wisdom
to always resolve win/win
revolutionary green new era decades
inviting questions and resolutions
exploring
remembering future images
of liberally conserving celebrations.

Grand Old Trump Party

President Trump,
shortly after his singularly smelly election,
declared emphatic comparisons with Elder Republican
Abraham Lincoln.

Early on,
he described Lincoln as his kindred political soul,
admired mentor,
and the former President he was destined to most resemble
in spirit and success;

Presumably not including assassination
causing an abrupt end to his second term in office,
won by a landslide–
even if mainly because the ancestors of many Trump loyalists
were not in a northern political position to vote that year.

More recently,
President Trump,
not one to drop names of people who don’t actually exist
outside his own narcissistic imagination,
relayed the uninvited twitter message,
People tell him,
apparently hoping for the privacy of anonymity,
that he is already the greatest Republican President
in US history,
including Abraham Lincoln,

Who would be so supportive of Trumpian caging of children,
supportive of DT’s mockery
of women,
of people with disabilities,
of those homeless,
of people poor,
criminalized
traumatized by violence…
The list goes on in a remarkably non-Lincolnesque
non-spiritual
unChristian
snarky kind of way.

I imagine the President has heard Lincoln’s observation about trust
so necessary for even a quasi-healthy democracy,

“You can fool all the people
some of the time,
and some of the people
all the time,
but you can’t fool all the people
all the time.”

President Trump isn’t known for being a reader
outside consuming twitter posts
and Fox non-news banners,
but it seems he might have heard,
possibly read,
this Lincoln proverb as a challenge,
or just went with optimizing the promise that he could fool some people
all the time–
good enough for government work.

President Trump made it clear,
even before his Inauguration Day,
that only those people who could appreciate the splendorous beauty
of his naked narcissistic garments and greed would:

  1. get to heaven,
  2. become TrumpMedia empowered
    to hate multiculturally resilient democratic constitutions
    and healthy co-governance systems.

Speaking of aphorisms,
this night of January 6th,
my ecosystemic soul bows to the post-full moonlight
remembering,
“It is always darkest just before dawn.”

I grab onto this hope,
but then realize
Whoever knows this to be true from experience
could only speak this with reassurance
after the first hint of emergent light to the East,
source of sacred light
and EarthlyPower.

Is this as dark as fragile democracy
and patriotic civility must fail
this self-governing experiment?

I can’t quite yet see an Eastern sky of fading stars
although I would love to be vision corrected,
perfected to see light and power
in this climatic polarized time
of win/lose ecopolitical rabidity,
eating our children’s future,
wasting their water
and formerly fertile soil,
and decimating shading fruitful trees.

I can imagine a darker hour.

I can imagine my children
speaking with their grandchildren
about now vanquished land and water mammals,
the improbable kangaroo
and porcupine
and skunk

About former forests of mature trees,
huge plants
strong rooted
and reaching up
and out
much taller than the tallest remaining human;
now aging memories of neighbors lost forever.

Earth’s elder democratic,
healthy,
polycultural,
living biosystems might well survive
our species,

The only one that appears motivated to elect leaders
invested in fooling all the people
all the time,
of ignoring the rights and pleasures,
truths and beauty
of all “lesser” species
and “weaker” people,
now reduced to natural commodities
throughout Earth’s darkest hours.

As Thomas Merton called, “le point vierge….Perhaps I have an obligaion to preserve the stillness, the silence, the poverty, the virginal point of pure nothingness which is at the center of all other loves.”

Still, and more silently, this piece owes its original inception to the I Ching, The Book of Change, especially the fourth icon before/after HeavenLight, EarthPower, BirthThroeThroughThrow, “Inception-Thicket,” as translated by David Hinton.

Compassion’s Healthy Allies

How might capitalism
and egocentric competitive allies
of patriarchalism
racism
sexism
monoculturalism
totalitarianism
binary double-standardism
anthropocentrism

remind us of which competitive communication weapons
develop further violently aggressive apartheid?

And which regenerate gratitude
for cooperative
co-passionate communication tools,
both verbal and non-verbal,
for growing multiculturally resilient social capital?

contextual rightbrain intuitively felt
both/and nuanced
dipolar co-arising left/right
bicameral intelligence.

Which of your green ecofeminist allies
share your active curiosity
and passion for issues
of healthy democratic empowering Trust?

universal,
so not divided or divisive,
unitarian

unable to passively accept
aborting tolerance,
or to explicitly intend
to collaborate with evil,

instead to comply
with win/win cooperative living systems
resiliently accommodating long-term health concerns
anticipated for our next seven regenerations
of social capital wealth.

Too often we become fascinated
with persuading our non-allies
how not only different
but more right we have become
in our old established
entrenched rightwing
v leftwing ways

perhaps because we cannot remember,
when ego’s healthy survival
feels at heartless stake,

multiculturally depolarizing conversations
invite both/and responsiveness
more than either/or debate.

Critically nuanced thinking/feeling dialogue,
essential to non-violent communication resonance,
speaks of chosen people
only after deeply listening
for muted voices of non-privileged
disenfranchised species
without competitive capitalist privilege
derived from patriarchally historical
leftbrain dominant verbal minds

still actively curious
about rightbrain’s integral tolerance
for being of underestimated value
becoming non-violent communicators
shunning retributive, punishing judgments

preferring to celebrate
with joyous win/win resistance
embracing compassion’s great

Dominating Capitals

Competitive capitalism
is about dominance,
which increases separation,
space between Winner haves,
and Loser have-nots

Degenerating into polarized views
more culturally dominant
than old-school cooperative middle
in-between
socio-economic median disappearances

Away from civically active democratic imagination,
focus,
functionally experiential frames
favoring cooperative democracy
over capital plutocracy.

Democracy is about win/win bicameral consensus
which grows integrity
between co-investing Haves
and HaveNots,
depolarizes our EitherHave/OrNotHave
eco-politically valued lives

Mediating in-between re-membering,
reweaving multigenerational cooperative
matriarchal empowering history
of mutually enlightening democratic health care

Through cooperative ownership
stewardship
citizenship
home and meal management
integrity of co-responsive thought and feelings,
polycultural communication
and multicultural energy systems

Refracting integral re-MEMEory
left-hemisphere empowering
right-hemisphere energetic win/win

Where Do Bullies Best Heal?

Where do bully pulpits go
when the only audience
right or left
is silence?

How would a narcotic Bully speak
after wonder and awed silence
return to anxious quiet
within a healing ecological culture
of intentional BadNews shunning?

How could these heated wounds
of belated excommunication
lead to hibernating repentance?
For win/lose
rightwing autocratic
unhealthy
much too liberally kleptocratic,
competitive anti-social capital
uncooperative over-infestment

How could this late
so great
made in USA
healthy
deep listening
multicultural global society
hear such wounded repentance?
Without recognizing our own
stone throwing sins of punishing
addictions to revenge,
anger about unhealthy win/lose divesting
of multicultured EarthBeauty and HeavenCooperativity,
fear of those not yet known,
hate for those not yet cherished,
greed to live largest,
longest and best,

To be granted monotheistic
last minute mercy
from torment for publicly pardoning
Patriarchy’s own capital-investment errors
without admitting more than slim possibility
of personally culpable,
and alarmingly illegal,
not to mention immoral
corporate error

For too hopefully entertaining
magical eternal rebirth
against liberty for Other’s personal changes,
yet for making your own
ego-identified death
unimpeachably great again.

How might a wealthy polycultured ecosystem
restore win/win justice
for a repentant win/lose
nationalistically empowered Bully?
Now engaged in cooperative social capital reinvestment
in ecological climates of healthiest wealth,

Now co-investing in silently listening
to all sacred voices
and win-inside/win-outdoor ecological
healthy democratic choices

While bowing to sacred hope
of faith-rooted wealthy Trees,
absorbing Earth’s nutritional co-relationships

Breathing out compassionate green communications
between heavenly light
and winds
and fire,
and Earth’s deep and wide
cooperative powers
and warm wet waters
of ecofeminist systemic wombs,

Seeds of therapeutic
wisely silent
compassion composting EarthJustice

As anciently witnessed by light
worshiping Trees
silently and shyly,
humbly and gratefully
absorbing social capital
through subterranean
healthy root systems,

And never unwisdom
of listening to uncaring win/lose ambivalence,
wrong v right branched dominant,
co-arising anxious Bully Pulpits.

Tolerating the Intolerable

I cannot tolerate
those who are intolerant,

I cannot stand
those who take a stand
against unknown others
unlike themselves,
much less than we are truly
health and safety seekers
multiculturally alike.

I can tolerate anything
except intolerance,
most certainly including impatience with myself,
not excluding my esteeming
estimating
assessing
empathizing
sympathizing
realizing
without finalizing
self and others
as myself
in others
as myself
co-empathic within other
cooperatively tolerant relationships.

I cannot not multiculturally tolerate
monoculturally elitist tolerance
of injury to MotherEarth,
of patriarchal-capitalist
straight white incorporated privilege
of which I am so much an unwilling
and unwitting
and unwisely competing un-part.

I can tolerate anything
except intolerant exceptions
to multicultural GoldenRules
to love unto others
as I would be loved,
as I tolerantly,
yet impatiently,
without active curiosity
about afflicting win/lose experiential wounds,
love my left egoself
as eco-other

Best at loving
my more than tolerant
best and brightest ecosystemic Teacher,
Master,
Mistress,
Mother,
Father,
Outdoor GreenGodVoices and Inside Healthy EarthChoices,
CoCreators of all EarthTribes,
as my actively cooperative green Self
as part of LifeSystemic InterDependent Tolerance Habitats,

More of a right-hemisphere tolerated HumanTruth
is also left-hemisphere
awesomely unfathomable EarthBeauty

Sacred vocation into selfless worship
of His/Her barely tolerable comings
and goings,
solstice
and equinox,
inhales
and exhales,
yang tolerant strengths
and yintegrity’s intolerance
of business as usual
lack of win/win
green cooperative inspiration
inhalations,
more tolerant intimations.

I cannot remain uncurious
about my own monculturing,
dualistic,
anthro-supremacist
Sacred EarthMother denialistic
pathological
pedagogical
apartheid tolerance
and disinvestments
away from cooperative polycultural EarthHealth Systems,

Care giving and receiving
democratic
social
public
biological
mental
animated
energetic
ecological
synergetic
pedagogical
theological
eco-political
healthy multi-systemic
poly-paradigmatic resilience

And so I ask
through my intolerably insatiable curiosity,
what is the greatest experience you have had
so far,
of self
as part of other?

And, my answer
ubiquitous in original gifted,
fore-given onto Earth’s
vast green living birthday context

MultiColored in associated feelings,
ranging from
“everyday since ego’s embodied birth
continues my grateful eco-celebration
of positive healthy neuro-psychological systems”
to
“everyday since has been hellishly
wounding downhill.”

It is these latter intolerable losses
and sorrows
and sufferings
painfully defensive monoculturists,
like my egoSelf,
are most likely to impatiently challenge
my yin-flexible plasticity
toward restoring win/win active curiosity

Responding to such hopelessly naive
green optimism
with defensive win/lose intolerance
for risking active healthing hope
of wealthy faith
in lavishly liberal love

When all intolerably long debating
shouting
and highly competitive
corporate marketed evidence
of my lifelong miseducated
and diseducated unhealthy
win/lose normative economic
devolutionary
disempowering
disillusioning
inevitable and intolerable
lose only to mortally lose
nihilistic theorized experience
ignores all green signs
of fore-giving cooperative economics,
co-redemption messianic politics,
restorative justice,
non-violent communication networks,
organic polycultural systems designers,
democratizing health/wealth bicameral tolerance

Today too red egocentrically limited
to progressive green WinWinners
gifting forward political economies
supporting local win/win value communications
intentions
more than tolerant appreciations,
slow-grown sacred applications,
prayers,
anthems

To global green compassion,
far beyond mere tolerance,
for Earth’s GreatCommons,
for Her Indigenous GreenCommunion.

Historical Winners

I’ve now read evolutionary
and feminist historians
and economists
and political scientists
agreeing, in a side by side custody
of the over-specialized eyes
and ears
non-dialogical way

Not competing against each other,
except maybe for journal space,
nor actively cooperating with each other,
beyond normal ethical Golden Rule academic standards,
occasionally co-opting hybrid terms
from each other,
word choices, if you happen to be a historical communication
paradigmatic systems analyst,
like Thomas Kuhn,
sniffing out multiculturing re-appropriations
moving toward renewing articulation
of non-colonization
non-violent revolutions,
co-passionate creolizations,
transubstantiations,
polypathic transformations
into grand new reincarnations

Agreeing that Earth’s historical evolution
involves both competitive survivalist economies
and cooperative thrival developments
growing ecological resilience objectives,

Meanwhile Game Theorists
recognize both survivalist win/lose power games
and thrivalist win/win positive communication
enlightened games.
mutually transparent
cooperatively vulnerable
culturally integral.

But, my own limited experience
challenges evolutionary assumptions
that win/lose competitions
are more cost-effective,
stronger strategic responses
to pandemic and climate public health crises

That runaway military-industrialized
monoculturing capitalism
is more likely to achieve successful economic health goals
than can win/win multi-party
inclusive healthy democratic cooperation

When local community
and corporate
and national commodified values
are in a frenzied state of feed and breed
before starved and bled
with competing rabidity
virility
audacity
cunning,
an ecologically prudent economist
might predict rabid exhaustion
and collapse of healthy co-invested economies
and wealthy ecological relationships
much more often than future’s more resiliently planned
cooperative co-invested Paradise.

And cross-pollination works both ways
when democratic multiculturing economic paradise
and global ecological
co-relational peace
feel most ecopolitically climatic
then co-passionate Left and Right Wings sing
of predative lions
and preyed out lambs
coalesce in ecosystemic cooperative fields
of co-invested manure together

Playful win/lose competitions
between cooperatively win/win trained
and empowered
and enlightened team-players
become our best socio-economic evolving structures
for learning cooperative holistic metasystems
with democratically competitive political
integral thriving economies
supporting locally owned producer/consumer cooperatives
and global win/lose competitions
in optimizing healthy empowering experiences

Hoping to be the first local economic delivery
of these last minute 20/20 revisionary gifts
for how we,
historically together,
become ultra-nonviolent
ecofeminist evolutionaries
retelling ancient narratives
concerning our thriving economic-ecological
political investments
in fairest fairness
to MotherEarth’s All

Cooperatively living
most health wealthiest
ever after.

Dear Nationalist RePublicans

I’m worried

your favorite deceptively entertaining commodity,

DisInformation’s strategic value

you can call out
Fire!
in a crowded political field
and Big Bad Wolf!
on a darkened shifty night
before you too soon become
the fired
not so big
yet very bad
misinforming
underwhelming wolf.

The distinction between treachery
and treason
against an inclusive well-being constitution
rooted in collaborative trust
and co-investment in truth
lies in the generous
or parsimonious eye
of the democratic beholder.

You have melted much
of thin immunizing ice
over the lavishly capitalized swamp
for disinforming humane reputations
you call ticklish
pricklish home.

Is six and seven figure skating
over such swampish disinforming ice
really worth the economic

to healthy green conservation,

To cooperatively democratic
