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.

My RightWing Family

My RightWing

Is way quick to remain gated

My RightWing family
is horrified
at the very self-righteous thought
of prostitutes and pimps
living and transacting their filthy business
within our own sacred straight

But,
I don’t recall
aversion to political prostitutes
underwritten by corporate sponsor pimps
happy to separate us from our cash

and get even more rich incorporated
while competitively divided

more domestic wisdom

LeftBrain ego-wounded addiction
to cheap self-medications,

domestic chronic battlefield stressful violence,
economic and educational disinvestment,
social nasty distancing apartheid,
and what does “compassionate communication”
even actively
hopefully mean?

As if individual egos
are solely responsible
to authorize their own
choice of sacred birthing Earthwomb.

My RightWing family
is horrified by spousal abuse,
especially among those lower class
non-straight

who don’t need no custody of the eye

These same ego-righteous non-abusers

remain in denial,
about our MotherEarth,
only sacred EcoHabitat,

with our fake anthro-supremacist

kleptocratic wealth,
absence of healthy eco-political

InBetween Left/RightWing rebalancing revolutions
reducing double-standards
against expressing actively hopeful curiosity
how we might, together,

Do Speak Kinder Ways

Dear EveryThing AntiObama Donald,

It is a humbling,
not so Great Again, truth,
is it not?
This statement,

“Don’t ever talk to
[or about]
The President
that way”

Sounds and feels much 20/20 different
when you are a belittled
and/or challenged
and/or blamed
and/or shamed President
judged as insufficiently Winner effective,

Than what you may 20/16 see,
and longingly return to competitively golden touch,
when you were belittling
and challenging
and blaming
and attempting to shame
as too multiculturally weak
to be resiliently strong,
without offering a shred of evidence
for your narcissistic bias,
running as a RePublican candidate
against a healthy democratic Presidency.

If you had this Win/Lose divisive Presidency
to do all over again,
how might you respond
to your own now wiser advice?

Don’t ever talk
about a multiculturally health-wealthing
democratically inclusive
and cooperative economic
empowering
and enlightening Presidency
that shameful
and WholeEarth unpatriotic
straight white patriarchally privileged
ChosenPerson narcissistic way.

Sinister Ministers

I feel quite certain
can
is to canister
as sin
is to sinister

Lust
is to luster
and teach
is to teacher
as preach
is to preacher

But not mini
is to minister
as not what sinister sermons
are to lusty sermonizers.

It also feels
like cause
for pause
that war
is to warrior
but we have no equivalent language
for peace
is to peacer.

We do have blessed
are the peace makers
but not peaceful players

Or cooperative
equivalent to peace
and restorative justice
workers.

Now I feel curious,
so probably no threat of furious
I can not put this can
back in my canister,
ban my empowered banister,
or limit my ignorant sins
to neglecting intuitive sinister.

To wonder why

ExtraCultural Events

Our problem
with restoring healthy democratic justice
is that we don’t all have anthropocentric constitutions.

Yes sweety,
but back here in my real world
more co-inhabited inside by people
than outside by plants
and planetary EarthJustice systems,

You know how sometimes it looks like
Joe Biden is having some possibly ecstatic
out of body experience?

You mean another senior
disempowering
and unenlightening experience?

I’m not sure
if the lights are turned up ultra-nonviolent bright
or down dimly dualdark.
But, anyway,

What I started to say
or ask,
and probably both,

Do you think Donald Trump
and our Nationalist Republican Corporate Party leaders
may be having a collectively rabid
and viral
out of their right political mind experience?

That does sound
and look,
touch
and feel,
smell
and taste
like a bicameral rhetorical communion question
to polyculturally communicating me.

And not so much
monoculture-nurturing
out of mindbody
eco-political We.
Right?

Left?

Something bilaterally
yintegral/yanging in-between
democratically cooperative economics
and theocratically competitive disillusionment?

That God is only regeneratively made
in human recreative imaginations.

Like I said…
too anthropocentric
to contain emergent
healthy
multicultural communication systems.

And wealthy multi-mediation networks
co-investing in mindbody
eco-political consciousness.

Like those win/win multicultural therapies
for win/lose monocultural
anthropocentric EarthDestroying wounds,
capital divestment,
wrong disempowering
unenlightened mind delusions.

Are you suggesting…

Probably still questing

That RightWing
narcissistic
anthropocentric
nationalistic empowerment risks
lose 20/20 revisioning opportunities
to grow democratic
ecosystemic
global enlightenment?

And health and safety global consciousness,
restorative EarthJustice.
You know,
multicultural political communication systems
and nutritional economic networks?

Intimate CoMessiahs

Sexually powerful energy,
longing for healthy
deeply resonant experience
of regenerative compassion,
both natural and spiritual,
metaphysically leftbrain
but yet embodied rightbrain,
reconnecting bicamerally sensory consciousness,

When combined
with disciplined
adult, and yet not fully mature,
religious passion for multiculturing fulfillment,
yet still grasping toward short-term ego-privileged
ultimate climax,
sensational satiating experience

Is a highly volatile mixture.
Dangerous ground.
Deeply treacherous.
Filled with yellow and red striped
CAUTION signs,

Icons of rich potential blessing
through resonant
non-violent
vulnerably transparent
communicating co-passionates,

Which is not equivalent to,
nor the probable outcome of,
not sharing with today’s
and tonight’s multi-sensory receiving audience
of the typically one-on-one intimate moment
what you have persuaded yourself
the engorged
engaged Other needs
and wants to hear
then see,
to touch
then feel,
to taste
then smell
to fully invest
in being naked
with you.

Great sexual partnering
does not begin
with good marketing communication skills,
talk without integral action

But, great sexual experiences
do begin and end
with resonantly
richly
robustly balanced
compassionate listening,
feeling,
smelling skills
explicitly communicating
your shared/unshared values
for long-term co-empathic sensory experience
through sensual communication

Including sexually committed
cooperatively co-empathic
naturally spiritual
long-resilient active compassions
in solidarity with all EarthTribes
in compelling felt, heard, fragrant climates
of unsettling ecstatic copulation

As soon as our unsexy wars
and aggressions end in timeless peace
overcoming both internal theological
nature v spirit ambivalence,
and external ecological
secular v sacred indifference.

Sexual integrity
is not a mainstream path
toward bodhisattva
and messianic compassion,
much less completion.

It is not a shortcut,
although long-term ecstatic belonging
with Earth and all Her sexy Tribes
may be an outcome of mature
ecofeminist compassion.

Whether true or not
I remain cautiously aware
I am not yet mature enough
to curiously
and courageously
know,
explore,
systemically and resonantly design,
compassionately and multi-sensually
polypathically and polyphonically
ecologically and theologically redevelop.

I’m Fine

His life felt sick.
Filled with ick

And she was sighing,
inside dying.

Yet, when asked,
her response
entirely unresponsive,
“I’m fine.”
puts her compassionate listener
in a double-bind.

Do I ask her if she is intentionally lying
or irresponsibly
out of her self-isolating mind?

Neither one
feels more kind
and patient,
still, uncommunicating
and yet curious.

Could it be
she is embarrassed
about being merely mortal?

A caregiver
without sufficient tools
or even weapons
to assure EarthTribe’s
resonantly healthy non-confrontations
with degenerative trends
sometimes overwhelming
normal regenerative
narrative twists and bends,

A mother
who must only be
an omnipotent caregiver,
without sustained support
as one of us
co-arising care receivers?

What good is universal health care giving
without reciprocal
compassionate care receiving?

And, how could we,
why would we,
when should all Earth’s caregivers
deny our patriarchal climates
of pathology?

When our allies are sick
and filled with unanticipated ick.

An Anxiously Anticipated Event

Dear John,

All day
yesterday
I loaded up with a cascading river
of mixed anxiety and anticipation
about what to safely and kindly,
transparently and vulnerably
compassionately, so non-violently, share
communicate;

Which narrative tributaries to choose
within this vast spacetime stream
of choices
directions
felt depressions and erections.

Do you remember
communication theory
framed as Rhetorical Events?

Our initial walk and talk,
eating together,
rather than my refrigerator foraging
brunchtime usual rawfood practice,
is a graced green,
rain giving way to blue, memory for me,
and, I hope, for we
these sacred walking
secular talking
people.

Successful rhetorical events,
as I recall,
and have co-passionately experienced
with ecstatic thrills
and mysterious chills of anticipation,
wanting more and more
cascading throughout my too isolated life,

Are cooperatively held spaces
resonant and verbal and non-verbal places
longing to become resilient
as ultra-violet light
in phosphorescent mystical night,
bright
and warm
without ballistic fright,
inviting sounds of sight.

So I drove home
basking in such rich
potentially resilient
transparent and vulnerable
articulate yet impassioned
felt experience
confirming all my own ego’s grand theories
about win/win non-violent
Rhetorical compassioning
Events.

My anxieties spoke later
about mutual physical
natural, yet also spiritual,
attraction–
this smell and taste neurological chemistry
of touch exhaling
to co-empathically predict
our romantically felt quality
inhaling integrity’s great resilient passions,
shared loves
communal,
deeply green cooperative,
that rhetorical day
as true and beautiful for us.

It has been thirty years
since my last first date,
with a man who became my unanticipated husband,
partner
spouse
lover
quarreler
critic
listener
emotive voice
co-investor
political ally
communicator
miscommunicator
long-term rhetorical event
cooperative space-holder,
mediator
not really quite green enough
for resonant felt
and thought co-passionate experience
near our end
of cohabitation.

Nearly half my lifetime,
thirty years,
and I feel anxious
I have not yet learned
appropriate new old person rules
of transparency
and vulnerability
to be clear
and kind,
compassionately clear
about my natural/spiritual
physical/metaphysical attractions,
anticipations,
anxieties.

When I last dated
a gay encounter of the first kind
either ended nakedly together
or with a scheduled second date
with a bed
or a sling
or a deserted moonlit beach
front and center on our anticipated menu

Or ended in disaster,
no connection,
no further warm and resonant communication,
no passing green light Go!

I did not “date”
men who lived so very far away,
out of state,
unless one of us was planning to relocate
or both of us were anticipating
an extremely resonant
one hot night stand
lying down together,
exploring all the vertical
and horizontal dances
we could imagine ever wishing we had done
to further gather
future’s warm anticipations.

I am anxious
because I do not want to disappoint you
or me
about our embodied
non-verbal communication
and passion together.

My own nakedness
lies nowhere near my vulnerable
and transparent self-esteem
as was the case
when I last dated
and I do not know
what to do
and not do
with that.

I have no mentors,
no wise teachers,
no therapeutic facilitators,
no sex therapist
to talk and touch me through
this anxiety.

But, I do anticipate
an unfortunate comparison
I met on our silvered dating site
the same day I first heard you
connect climate pathological effects
with capitalistic causes,
which immediately won my curiosity
to know
just how deeply knowing
we might go
together,
and not apart.

I met another singer
another meditator
another deeply
physically connected
to Taoist sensory communication
yangly verbal and yin non-verbal,

More physically incarnated
and less metaphysically abstract
less theoretical
merely rhetorical
more mature
aged
connected like wine with cheese
and re-connected
than my own experience
in how to mutually
yet maturely
please.

Last evening we talked.
His voice sings and rings,
warmly chills and quietly thrills.

And, he is closer.
Teaches dance.
We anticipate learning together
how to tango horizontally
without creating an entangled mess
at our ripe old average age
of 69

Which,
when I last dated
was a cooperatively rhetorical
erotic position
and not an age
which we sensually anticipated
without great anxiety
about resilience
of sensual resonance.

For me,
this need not be a win or lose,
either-or situation.
Even less so
if I thought the two of you
would appreciate each other
in this partner searching
lifeline rivered
shivered way,
but that is not what I would anticipate
either of you would say.

So, that is what is on my mind
and heart
and root chakras
this another deep green
ego-centering
and ecosystemic rhetorical day.

Said my vertical horizontal way,
physical and metaphysical
natural and spiritual
secular and sacred
love with you
and hell to pay,
anxiously anticipating
your kind
non-maligned
response.
