Beloved Immigrants

My LeftYang eye and ear,
and maybe throat
and hand
and probably vocational feet
remain adamantly persuaded

My most successful time for deep ecological listening
and watching
is immediately after inhaling a vast theological lungful
preparing to speak my WiseElderness
into the remaining yin void
of those no longer refuged
or capable
of yin nurture hearing
and seeing
cooperative EarthSoul
matriotically yin within.

my sacred RightBrain ElderYin eye and ear
remain resonantly singing
resiliently winging
resolution zinging

Our most healing time
for deep theological voice listening
is immediately after Yang
has finally run out of extractive
patriarchal breath,

So Gaia Earth can restore some mouth to mouth ringing
and love singing
and therapeutic zinging.

Her resilient resonant health narratives
inward deep listening
WinWin yin-doublebind glowing
for ears to cooperatively notnot hear,
eyes to polyculturally see dipolar,
Positive and Negative Energy feedback
where Yang would most likely have already played-out
defensively preparing his egocentric next offensive
wise remarks
for yins to best listen to,
and yet still resiliently not listening.

Mainly because he continues preparing
too LeftYang Business As Usual
patriarchally loud regimes
of cognitive-affective dissonance
yin-suppressed atmosphere

after yin childhood has adolescent passed,
is just a necessary short-term risk
of losing his already not listening competition
for WiseElder ears,
still deductively stuck
in anti-trust
monocultural nationalism,
colonization of EarthSoul SacredSpecies
inhabiting Secularized LeftYang Dominating Spaces.

He thinks,
or hopes,
he must persuade himself
to teach and hear kids WinLose
in competing closeted dissonance
about tolerating self-justified outspoken ego-defensive violence
long enough exhaled
loud enough
someone might stop Yang speaking
to affectively listen,
effectively see,
infectively absorb,
creolically cascade and glisten
in reposed bilateral response.

GaiaYin grows climate enraged
with Yang’s long exhalation,
extractively hearing mainly his EgoSelf
pursuing Business as WinLose Usual

Then deep grazing RightYin landscapes
sad silently erode
listening with millions of EarthSoul refugees
in voided disempowerment,

Speaking through Her self-emptying YinEmpathy
Resisting Yang’s continuing threatening throat
of angry frightened anti-trusting violence

Violence to steal nurturing nutrient Time
within Future Secular/Sacred
WiseElder EarthSpace.

While Yin longs to heal
within our universal refugee
and immigrant stories
WinWin restoring co-empathic
release into unknown WinWin
pasts toward future bilateral SacredTime.

Dialectal YangYin Frames
YangGod hopes to speak
secular-sacred synergy
While YinGaia waits,
to hear and feel our cooperative love belonging,
beloved EarthSoul rhapsody.

When Yin’s time to sing
matriotic peaceful patriotic revolutions
Yang will be most strong
to listen non-violently,
non-dually dipolar,
We are all YinMother’s beloved
inside-outside refugees.


Wisdom to Survive

When will we gain the wisdom to survive
this disturbing
adolescent denialism
of fascist bullying tendencies
toward shrieking violence
at silent displaced victims,
creating rivers of homeless
multi-degenerational refugees?

Where are the all growed up
nurturing regenerate adults
in our capital city rooms?

On organic farms, maybe,
and outside healing our soils
and rivers
and climatic atmosphere.

When our great grandkids
arrive happily and safely by bike
across cooperative harvesting neighborhoods,
team teaching and listening
their restorative justice Sunday Creation Schools,
riding through their Permaculture Designed
Sacred Deep and Wide Ecology Projects.

When they stand among allied classmates
like slow-growing trees
restoring Earth’s climate ruined place,

When they have restoried our No Gun Zone streets
with bike paths and nutritious narrative trails
through literally edible forests
and bright-flowered lanes,

When their eco-village homes
and neighborhoods
preserve and naturally-spiritually reconstruct
EgoStrong and EcoFlowing places
born upon river valley sides,
goat and sheep grazing Greens,
park meadows,
and organic cooperatively-owned and managed gardens
rich in well-placed windows
for observing lovely PositivEnergy abundance.

When their FirstNative sacred River
once again runs gracefully pure,
as their premillennial parents
never saw or knew it.

And over stone and clay bridges
birdsong like a rainbow-octaved canopy
speaks through fragrant flowered air
cool in wooded shade,
warmer on arms
and shoulders
and bicameral heads
crossing clover and alfalfa clearings
inviting returns
to green sweetgrass memories.

When on their steepest river banks
an old forest already stands restored
from briared choking vines
by PositiveEnergy Justice Guardians.

When their deep and rich leaf-fall blankets
drift down to sooth multicultured roots.

When nurturing out and in veins
and lungs,
now forgotten resources
for Ego-EcoCentric Hope,
have reopened
toward cooperative energy restoration.

When their families sing and dance together
on town Greens and meadows.

When indoor and outdoor voices
hear polyphonic music
rise out of polypathic grounds…
ancestral DNA-RNA anthems
of well-danced solidarity.

Then this native river valley
will spread across bilateral time
and WiseElder space,
a self-perpetuating grove of grace

And sacred eco-theo logical memories
grow through fire-circling matriarch-patriarch legends.

Sacred ego-echo resonant legends
spring into gospel songs
of polyculturing harvests.

Civil Right-Left love songs
liturgize humane EarthSoul sacraments.

Deep learning abundance of this ZeroZone place
after our climate pathology time
carry songs of people
and eagles,
hawks and doves,
whales and wolves
and rabbits,
bring sacred WiseElder health
indwelling PositivEnergy light.

They no longer merely dream
of WinWin ZeroZone Raptures,
no paradise transubstantiation
as consuming competing victims
rather than also producing cooperative allies.

Our WinLose competing hardships
of inevitable evolution
help birth their WinWin ZeroZone,

EarthSoul in synchronic responsive responsibility,
democratic mutual authority,
sublime cooperative possibility,
sacred mundane everyday epic vocations

For Nurturing ReGenerative Adults
revisioning A Vision
away from Toxic DeGenerative
perpetual WinLose Adolescence
of too much LeftBrain Yang dominance,
refusing to succumb to EarthSoul’s grace
as our No Gun ZeroZone.

Trump Speaks Wolf, Wolf!

I don’t want Aliens
buying U.S. business,
but please stand back
while I buy up all your cheapest busyness
for International Made In America Trumpism.

like Trumpism,
should work only one way,
as everybody of importance knows,
is my imperialistic,
not much empirical,
Royal Way.

I also don’t want your poor
and uneducated immigrants,
and certainly not their ungainly families,
but please keep your rabble back
while I visit your capital investments
to infest my glorious smog
embracing short-lived climates of pathology.

like facts,
should only work
Made in Triumphalist U.S. way,
and if anything were ever true blue and White,
and not at all red, patriotic made,
it is my great transitional
Trumpian UnHealthCare Way.


Immigrants Gone Native

I suppose it isn’t rather nice
to think of us this way,
but to the squirrels
and the trees,
the robins and the grasses,
human natures are Earth’s great transitioning immigrants
on this block
we call a planet.

In this newest arrival sense,
I hope and fear,
we are Earth’s greatest immigrant yield,
pushing transitional boundaries
toward radical landscape and even climate caustic developments
Earth prefers somewhat less infestation of,
for every animated creation’s sake.

Even the rivers and lakes
and ice caps
and glaciers complain
about us,
their latest wave of high maintenance immigrants.

Cousins, maybe,
when Earth’s NonHuman Tribes are in a more generous mood.
Extended family drawn from pre-historic RNA,
then those upstart DNA, roots,
yet still evolving emergent family economies
out to uncomfortably embrace our less ecological nonsense,
causing further stress among all our natural-spiritual natives.

like rattle snakes and scorpions,
seem quite riled up
about our Beacon on a Hill attitudes
toward them,
our originating hosts.
It is, after all,
one thing to become grateful immigrants,
and quite another to become entitled supremacists
and racists
and sexists
where patriarchs rule over,
and too often against,
our matriarchal lines of Earth’s Original Instructions,
embryonic Golden Rule mentors
for native multiculturing thrival,
which survivalist “us-or-them” recent immigrants
to the White House, not to name names,
reduce to food chain narrow-minded nonthinking,
not noticing
Earth chains of nutrition are also lattices,
circling spirals of eco-immigration
journeying together dynamic cooperative systems
of mutually becoming.

Healthy nature networks
have exegetical advantage
seeing and feeling this lattice structured system
of each new species’ generation
producing new immigrants from our wombs
and harvested,
although not necessarily planted,
health wealthing seeds.

New immigrant generations,
young ones,
may better know and sense
our mutually emergent immigrant status,
circling back toward Original Golden Rule Instructions,
to enfranchise all life
as liberally
as mutual positive outcome possible
to better sing and dance
our proudly shared immigration histories;
co-celebrants interdependently polypathic
and polyphonic.

More than just a humble postscript,
this play of natures
across Earth’s immigration stage proclaim:
If natural and spiritual reason supports democracy
as healthy,
and totalitarian WinLose ecopolitics as pathological,
for human natures emigrating toward health
including happiness
including prospects of co-operative wealthing outcomes,
then Earth’s historical evolutionary grace
kindly invites us to recall
by reconstructing,
What is good for human nature
must remain good for all Earth natures,
animated becomings,
or our native host species
never would have given residency to us,
this last great transitional wave of vulnerable immigrants.

Just because these older waves of immigrants
can’t talk our democratic talk
does not mean they don’t walk
our health and pathology walk.
When in doubt about such radical co-franchisement
ask fading glaciers
and polar caps
how they are voting with their melts
while human natures continue
to stomp our immigrating feet,
hold our newborn breath,
until we hear more blue-green matriarchal,
turquoise regenerate cycling for some
who study emigrating bilateral spirals.

WinLose temperature elevating tantrums,
holding nature’s collective breath captive,
waiting for rebirth of co-animating choices
as Earth’s Tribes of EcoImmigrants
flowering spirals,
effective spells
inciting this one last great co-immigrant transition
into reborn matriarchal,
also cooperatively-owned partner patriarchal,
full-living color,
inviting each and all
to never fade out
to all Western NorthernWhite Capitalists
pursuing monocultural supremacy
of WinLose entropy,
empty dissonance,
white noise of Other Absence.

Squirrels and trees,
robins and rivers,
have chosen us to emigrate from past times
with them
toward our mutual co-enfranchisement.
So, no fair anti-ecologically disenfranchising them,
our native healthing
prosperous democratic hosts.


Dear Donald

I know how much it means to you
to protect my health and safety.

And, for this purpose,
to stop the terror,
end the ballistic killing
within these disuniting States,
please ban the NRA,
and stop selling guns
to those with histories
of mental illness.

The statistics,
both real and alternative,
all inform quite clearly,
if you would put this same energy
you have invested
in keeping out
those who would reinvest in,
to helping out
those who already disinvest of our domestic peace
and nonviolence,
then this killing Association already here
might calm down
enough so you could hear
the silence of those seeking
absence of threat and violence.

Thanks so kindly
for your first priority attention
to these matters
of real lives and deaths,
in contrast to those you have imagined.
