Widowed ComPassion

Said the old widow cook
to the drag queen son
feeding his/her dying abusive dad,
while offering her nurturing donation:

“I don’t want your money.
We’re not savages, yet.”

Healthy Life Integrity

I find a consistent
constitutionally protected value
hidden in Preambulation
and historical Declaration
reaffirming U.S. healthy democracy,
our Holy Grail.

Life
liberty
pursuit of happiness
well-being

During Enlightened Elder
1700s,
and still largely our worldview today
in deindustrializing MidWest
sweltering South
acid raining East
and, most mystically,
among empowered Californians
and Oregonians
and Washingtonians,

Healthy democratic intent
for integrity of humanity
supports HEALTHY life,
INTERDEPENDENT liberty,
and win/win pursuit
of resiliently SUSTAINABLE
happiness,
well-being,
peace.

This non-issue
of our constitutional republic,
with healthy,
growing
still-evolving
dynamic democratic intent,
purposed with sacred meaning
to nurture and support
HEALTHY life

Becomes more obvious
when considering what an “ethic of life”
would look like
if our eloquent ForeFathers
and wise GrandMothers
had UNhealthy life
as an economic
and political aspiration

Any quality of life,
regardless of how compromised
pathological
sinful
demented
unhappy
joyless
violent
pathological
ignorant
greedy
belligerent
traumatized
chronically stressed
dissociated
severed from a shared reality
of cooperative peace
and co-invested contentment

Could not be a consistent ethic,
or family morality,
of HEALTHY life
for all organic creations,

Not preferential for Straight White Men,
but a healthy polycultural democracy
to support healthy
interdependent
sustainable human lives
of all cultures,
inter-religious beliefs,
compassionate feelings,
nonviolent communications.

More recently,
ecologists
and creation theologists
and climatologists
have added an interesting footnote
to healthy democratic aspirations

If we would have
nutritionally
politically
economically healthy resilient lives,

Then we need
and want
to extend our democratically appreciated agenda

To include HEALTHY lives
of oceans,
forests,
river systems,
air,
bioregions,
food chain
interdependent
sustainable
life-care systems.

As far as I know,
my Republican friends
and family
share this expectation of our governors,
legislators,
executives,
court systems,
to seek HEALTHY life care

And, not so much
PATHOLOGICAL
diseased lack of caring
for all Earth’s sacred tribes,
species,
networks,
cooperative win/win
organically interdependent
sustainable health-care systems.

CoOperative Agency

They are friends,
I imagine,
Or perhaps unfamiliar
yet curious
neighbors.

These two seem to like
to lick
each other

And probably value public transparency
more than personal privacy

I wonder
how they became work out
and play in partners,
surprisingly athletic,
flexible,
and inventive

With minds
that began flirting,
Engaging bodies
now urgently culminating.

Benediction
for this newly heated
yet ancient
sacred communion

A warm summer kiss,
a shared soiled towel,
a sapient smile
in the shower.

MultiCulturing Gifts

I wonder
wander through sacred history,
in
and out again

Back
remotely far
before humanity,

When EarthTribes
were already compassionately gifted
with potential whole-sum divinity,

PanenTheistically expressed
today
in ecofeminist Earth’s great
rapturously gifted
economic ecology
of relationships
worth having
truth of resonating beauty.

I wonder,
back before religious anthrocultures
and sexual regenerating climates
were sensory
nonlinguistically
yet meaningfully alive,
then, later,
lately LeftBrain purposely separated
into Either Or
where previously RightBrain reigned
Both-And

Communicating severances
in a precisely dissociative way
away from sacred companionship,

As were sensuality
and healthy polycultures
of democratically inclusive communion

Long
long before Earth’s non-violent
verbalized communication.

I wonder
if, before Verbal Dominance
when religion
felt like communal reconnection,

All creatures here below
awoke riding on sacred Earth
below these timeless flowing clouds
accumulating land and seas
of rich communication
enveloped in resonant
musical companionship.

I wonder
if all EarthTribe asked,
invited
absorbed within
among each Other,
was nonviolent hospitality
in healthy democratic return
of wealthy
multiculturally religious
transcendently sensual
politically empowering communications
of economically enlightened
theo/eco-logical companions
celebrating co-empathic gifts.

Silent Sacred Spaces

I’m noticing
you’re not noticing
I’m starting to look for
what you’ve already heard
with anticipation
overpowering my internal anxious voice
with calm
and kind compassion

When Other disharmonious human voices
speak of win/win choices

Or sing
a right-handed dance
within my balanced EarthTribal range
of listening
for sacred silent choice.

I become
my still-maturing surprise,
replacing my “Other” anxiety,
awkwardness
disappointment

About unfocused AnthroVoice insecurities
in suffering Other’s compassion,
insufferable curiosity,
predative empathic touching,
yet igniting mellow multicultural waves
of resonant pastel sound,
resilient brilliant sight

And these in-between times
silent solitude sacred rests
between transparent syncopations
of impatient human sounds,
inhumane frowns

Not interacting with same room
or screen-time voices,
thoughts
verb-tainted feelings,

These soulful un-nouned bests
have, until recently,
invited anxious boredom,
apathy,
depression,
aching loneliness,
emotional apartheid,

While now
in this human sound silence
of co-redemption
I absently reach out
for deeply exploring
sounds of Simon/Garfunkel’s silence.

Negative and positive felt voices
provoking newly found choices
liberty of equanimity,
good humored curiosity about anxiety
stress
trauma triggers

Cooperatively reaching
for anticipating
future eco/ego therapy
indigenous healing
wisdom securing
conserving liberating
internal/external co-passions,

Smiles
and frowns,
ups
and downs,’
transcendent lights
and immanent powers,
remembered lives
projected loves
for capitalized risks
minimized by win/win nutritional opportunities
for nurturing silent
calm and kind
time outside/inside co-invested bliss.

Parsing Partisanship

Gay Rights are not Civil Rights
grabs my Yahoo facetime
fast-paced news rhyme

Civil Rights are not just Gay Rights
on my administrative time
bounces back a Left WhiteHouse reprise
that Civil Rights
include Gay Rights
as a necessary subset,
but not multiculturally sufficient anthem
to cooperative network define
a green ecosystemally co-passionate refinement

Sacredly inspired divine,
panentheistically supported,
indigenously wise
green party spirited natural civil rights

Are not
uncivil capitalist
straight Anglo Corporate Rights
are not particularly humane Civil Rights

Grabs my bilateral
dipolar-coarising attention
consciousness
awareness
green woke upness
ecofeminist positive
also means healthy and safe awakeness

“Gay Rights”
by your definition
on my Right,

Are those also “Women’s Rights”?

And/or “Lesbian Civil Rights”?

What about “Transgender Rights”?
if you are a tadpole
or a flower,

Would that be OK for you?

What about “Anal Intercourse Rights?”
for mammals?

Then there’s the ever popular
“Abortion Rights”
for trees
dropping her nutty egg seeds
before their time
in times of drought
and fire
and sensual deprivation;
lack of environmental support.

Could “Civil Rights”
include “Bisexual Rights”?

Would these be “Up-To-Half-Homosexual Heterosexual Rights”?

Or, more simply,
less schizophrenically
less blatantly half secular/half sacred
less curiously half wiki-spiritual/half natural

Not quite so mentally unhealthy
bipolar RightWing dominant
parsing
and non-parsing
rumination
ruination
of what might have been
bicameral “Healthy Democracy Rights”

Which are not UnCivil Rights
of AnthroSupremacists
to commit ecocide

While LeftWing
RightBrain repressives
wonder why their RightWing God’s
LeftBrain dominant monotheistic
monoculturalism
defines conservatism only negatively,
uncreatively,
degeneratively,
dissociatively,
dissonantly,

As economically
and politically needed
to reassure us
LeftBrain
Straight AngloCorporate worldview
on restoring EarthRights to Basic Climate Thrival
really must lack Win/Win green
emotive
contextual civil rights intelligence
of the average
woke up synergetic ecofeminist.

Regardless of species
doing their basic sensing
and complex feeling
personal
and global
and tribal
and familial
and multigenerational
and polycultural
and panentheistic
and systemically integral
sacred health care
organic civil rights homework

Which is what I was supposed to be doing
when
Gay Rights are not Civil Rights
grabs my Yahoo facetime
fast-paced news rhyme
and it’s not yet dawning
Sabbath spacetime.

Sunday morning nap time
is not uncivil screen time
for writing not really news rhymes.

Surprising Elders

I wonder if there are Elders
wise
or more perennially surprised
who, looking back at their youth,
regret all their erotic time
invested in having peak
experiential sex,

And wish they had, instead,
done something, most anything,
more left brain dominant,
more theoretically
politically correct,
more economically prominent.

I so hope not.

Better off, I feel sure,
invested in abundant splatters of messy,
sometimes musical, health

Than overly divested
away from EarthTribe’s gloriously peaking race
carried away by abstemious matters
of more disciplined pace
for securing capital infested wealth.

Punishing Silence

Do we choose silence
not only as a tool
for self-protection
when speaking
our latest chapter stories
feels unsafe?

But also stern silence
may become a weapon
to ward off apathetic enemies
of our straight
hopelessly white
monotheistic
monopolistic
patriarchal capitalist
enemies

Who would not seem to care
to love us
more than we ourselves
can love them
as part of us
right now
left multiculturally
and ecofeminist
silenced here.

As you go
and liberally grow silent,
I may quietly
then traumatically
hear,
as isolating time
sticks ominously by,

“I am not your constant un-masked friend,”
and, thereby,
an ominous self-fulfilling prophecy
emergently erupts
in punishing response,

“I cannot remain
your therapeutic good-times,
vaccinated against silent unease,
healthy
co-empathic musing friend,”

To trust when skies grow silently dark
and night descends
beyond despair
to safely share
stressed Trauma

Itself first felt ray
of restoring justice promise
despite this loss of salvific
passioned hope.

Prosperity losses steal
from future compassion
already while first silenced weapons
dream denying
relentless truths of suffering
lack of healthy opportunity
to speak our fears
out loud
with those who trust
our trembling tears.

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.

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.
