Marriage Quarantine

I wonder
if marriage could be less of a quarantine
from significant other relationships
and more of a prime relationship
in love’s easy and difficult lessons,
growing more resonant as opening out
to deeper and wider resonant caregiving
and receiving,
extending familial relationships
which, in turn,
do not predominately compete for time
but primally cooperate
with our initial attachment bond.

This feels like the opposite
of a marriage model
in which each partner expects,
sometimes demands,
that all attachment needs
for ecological
and theological
and biological
and sociological
and neurological connection
and healthy cooperative reconnection,
communion will become monoculturally
and magically met
by this one other mere mortal person.

I wonder, sometimes,
if marriage,
cooperative partnership
and management
and ownership experience,
of creolizing multicultural health
has devolved into a left-brain dominant theory
of humane relationship
sustainable only through threat
of punishing non-exclusive
non-supremacist relationships
emotionally isolating,
increasingly codependent
competitive lack of healthy eco-political
democratic co-governance.

Could marriage grow not only co-gravitating
bipolar passion
but also dipolar co-arising compassion,
resonant resilience,
resting in robust health/wealth
left/right communion?

Not so much a polyvagal theory
of partnership;
More of a polypathic experience
in- and ex-forming
EarthRooted healthy marriage,


Binding Conversations

I try to live
and feel
and think
and strategize win/win
in that in-between left and right
systemic ecology and global, multicultural theology,
natural relationships and spiritual polypaths,
resilience and resonance,
yuang and yin
explicating and implicated,
extrinsic and intrinsic,
inhale and exhale,
and depression repression suppression recession oppression,
positive and not negative
1 and 0 double-binary

Universal One:
Our Yang goal,
to merge with multicultural empowerment
beginning with polypathic conservations
of intersectional webs
for regenerative life EarthSystem,
And polyphonic
positive harmonic
liberal lovers

Unitarian Zero:
Yin mentoring
energy democracy
within cooperative becoming
belonging health
supplanting left-brain dominant egocentered
longing for autonomous
divisive wealth
empire-building disempowerment
of all Alien win/lose predators

Universal One:
Rather than colonizing history’s
diversity into a single monocultural Yang dogma,
Taoism, like Zeroism,
is a nondualist philosophical tradition
to which no patriarch
has ever been historically validated
with overpowering win/lose colonizing effectiveness
and capitalistic wealth

Unitarian Zero:
Belonging to Earth’s creolizing
multiculturing ecological process
of regenerative health empowerment,
in a 2020 nonsermon
not entitled “Why Unitarian Universalism is Living”
non-revered EcoFeminists sing
and fire-circle dance
to experience reconnected ecological religion
that has always HolyWind and Spirit
indigenously existed everywhere,
and to which everyone
of polypathic left and polyphonic right
ego/eco-balancing health/wealth note
throughout herstory
has always belonged

sacredly and secularly
spiritually and naturally
theologically and ecologically
yin with yang
right with left
Both/And with Either/Or
intuitively felt and deductively thought
imagined and remembered

win/win compassioned
primally empty empathic ego
and secondarily
fully ecosystemic,
timelessly eternal
becoming and belonging
refining and defining
inhaling and exhaling
precessing and recessing
re-investing and divesting…

Fragile Supremacy

Does it always feel good to be King?
Or Queen?
PolyPathic Genius?
PolyPhonic Perfect Pitched Prophet?

White fragility,
like loneliness,
is the psychic
and economic
and disempowering risk we take

Each time and place
we consciously impress
subconsciously oppress
unconsciously suppress
anti-consciously repress
over-invested white male privileged opportunities

To recognize cultures as polycultural systems
and climates as polypathic networks,
sometimes health and wealth balanced polynomials
and sometimes more monochromatically problematic,

Played out
in win/lose economic capital advantages
and egocentric/anthrocentric
competing political game environments
assumed to be ZeroSum
by left-brain dominant win/lose energy conservationists
and also NonZero-Sum
co-arising dipolar 4-season revolutionary
by right-sacredmind win/win emergent progressivists,
change agents vulnerably fragile
and transparently eco-feminist privileged.

Games of physical aggression
too often produce violently wounding
retributive justice strategies
and spiritual
metaphysical detachment
from disempowering privileged intent

Games of metaphysical aggression
grow out from leftbrain dominant language,
patriarchal-ism word and value choices
labeling win/lose natural realism v
win/win liberal in love too optimistic v
lose/lose conservative of static entropic death
too pessimistic
too fragile
too privileged to feel

Ecologic-rooted theologies on sacred Right
and theological ego/eco-logos
for win/win feminist Left

Physical fragile metaphysicians
and metaphysically privileged win/win healers

Does it always feel good to be King?
And Queen?
And Diva?
And PolyPathic Genius?
And PolyPhonic Perfect Pitched Prophet?

Who would know
with ultra-nonviolet gratitude
this empowering East side
of Gaia’s BlueGreen Earth?


I Would Like To Listen More

I would like to hear
with no urgent need to speak
and to respond
without reacting,

I would like to hear
your experience with faith and faithless communities,
and atheistic,
and secular believers
and unbelievers,
communal investment positive
and fear and anger
flight and fight negative,
and pathological,
and dissonant.

And I would like to hear the same
about political power experience,
and non-partisan,
green democratic
and libertarian republican,
and more peacefully resonant
green new deal ecopolitical parties
and win/win games of cooperative discussion
and win/lose strategies of capital-headed competitions.

And I would like to share
our hopes and dreams
of future faith cooperative ownership
and empowerment party management
for public healthy climate resonance
and private wealthy resilience,

I would like to hear us sing
for our win/win democratic cooperative suppers,
expressed in liturgical dance,
unrepressed fire circles
impressing nature/spirit bicamerals
locally through globally contagious
listening cameras.

I would invite us to share
where we have been
and where we would like to journey together
for our own health
and climate resonance,
And so our children
and grandchildren
and their children
will look lovingly back on us
gathered here this and future days
to claim their shared health inheritance,

“In their lunch space
and climate public residential time
of great unraveling,

They didn’t just eat together,
they dined smart
and swallowed multicultural grace
until so full of wealthy health
they learned to sing and dance
to pray and play
to faith and power
our way
toward this very resilient
right/left bilateral
warm accompaniment day
of cooperative interdependence.”

Our children will benefit
from our social-psychological wealthy interdependent health,
of course,
but also political-economic binomial equity-investment,
polypathic and also not not polynomial balance
theological and ecological
great reweaving analogical,
metaphoric and polyphonic
20/20 listening.


New Year’s Recycling Journey

Stepping into a new year,
especially one calling for 20/20 revision
not retribution for anger’s past
but restoration of WinLeft/WinRight bicameral sanctuary,

Stepping into a new ZeroZone Asylum,
positive deviance from leftbrain competitions
predicting reductive,
business as usual.

Positive left/right harmonic deviance
invites cooperative resistance
against a shared predative,
hopelessly heterosexual privileged enemy
of all the non-elite people
emerging from leftbrain dominant climates
of EarthTribe colonization,
extraction of life,
enslaving monopolization of body-power,
disembodied neglect,

Shared asylum against negative lose/lose nihilism,
fake elitist monotheistic Rapture,

Against positive win/win passion,
compassionate communication,
ego/eco left/right yang/yin bicameral therapy.

Stepping into this NewYear ZeroZone
can be yet another
in an undistinguished
degenerative lose/lose series,

Lacking 20/20 sensory-neural
revolutionary revision,
restoring peace,
Earth Climate Justice,
inside as outside,
inspiration as exhalation
enlightening as empowering
not-not yin as positive intersectional yang
exponential 0 as multiculturing 1
incoming wealth herstory as outgoing polyculturing health

Ecofeminist 2020
predicting trimtab strategic
global health possibility
of a robust 2121
cooperative wealth-climaxing

May this win/win celebration game
begin not win/lose degenerating all over again,
but, instead, grab hold of regenerative becoming
NewGreen MultiCultural Asylum.


2020 ReWeaving Vision

Speaking With NonBully VoiceBoxes

Dissociative injustice,
like racist slurs and disinvestments,
retributive oppression
for not being SWM enough,
has ecological roots
in LeftBrain anthro/ego-centered fruit
of fragile disconnected autonomy,
against all competing odds
still struggling to win
against all other elitist competitors
for greatest capital gains
over losses.

in RightWing militarized marching squares,
LeftBrain monocultural EitherNature/OrSpirit dualisms
place anthropocentric narcissists
at the SWM Western apex
of a cognitive/emotive intelligence pyramid,
made in Father God’s whitest image,

Privileging SWMs over not-SWM also-rans,
and championing all loyal
humane Earth residents
as endemic only to USA
PatrioticLoyalTrue nationalists
immorally and anti-redemptively overruling
the dark remainder
of ecofeminist systemically entrained
warm and wet EarthWomb-inspired consciousness;

Lacking the LeftBrain verbal communication obsession
to imagine only the idea of God
as Other than self-identifying Gaian nurture presence,
health advocate
true defender of nutritional wealth.

Reflected in each holy living system,
a co-passioned win/win expression of,
and participation in,
this ongoing Great Transformation
of Gaia’s rebirth into indigenous LeftBrain consciousness
of RightBrain’s interdependent faces
resisting Earth HealthLoss
and mortal EgoLoss,

Gaia’s sacredly immanent warmth
required to feel safely connected
to cognitive/affective resonance
with Earth’s secular/sacred balancing climates
of yesterday,
and tomorrow.

With that said,
we warmly invite ourselves to ask:

How has my own eco/theo-logical
and anti-logical dialogue
with co-emergent God/MotherEarth relationship
constrained within internal/external holy communion
articulating global ecosystemic metaphors
favoring all communicating healthy,
warm co-presence?

Yet, how do we still struggle with win/win active hope
north/south challenges, appositional
(both/and, not only either/or oppositional),
yang/yin competitions?

In this LeftBrain dominant RightWing USA
or the HighWay monoculture,
insufficiently responsive
to our ego and environmental health crises
overpopulating and carbon-burning Gaia’s former wealthy climate,
now facing self-effacing lose/lose trend-analysis
without healthy communication
of cognitive and emotive democratic co-authorizing resonance


Powers Over Me

I once read,
If I am a parishioner,
(or a student
or a child
or some other non-elite identity)
Then someone has power over me.

It would have been more helpful
if this “someone”
had been named,
finger-pointed outed.

I am left wondering,
Who could this Someone be?

And, is this non-indigenous power
used to empower and disempower me?
And/Or, disempower and empower We?
And possibly some of both,
and all fractal four, above?
Or, with the And/Or,
is this actually another variation
on a perfect octave circling string?

This “someone”
could not mean clergy,
usually civil,
more than uncivil;

Called to suffering of servant facilitators,
mediators of democratically inclusive theological reflection
on real world experience,
the scripture of ecological dynasties,

Natural relationships
learned as also,
at our best and most resilient,
theologically resonant health
and safe-valued wealth
of co-passions,
equivalent to double-negatives,

and histories
and herstories
of double-binding bilateral ZeroZone Souls.

Two intersectional stories
for all relationships,
secular Yang
with sacred non-elite bilateral yin-squared power
climates inside/outside,

Fractals of positive empowerment
and negative disempowerment

Within ecosystems ego-sufficient
and concomitantly co-arising
co-incidental transubstantiation

When Ego equals LeftYang hemispheric framing lenses
and Eco equals RightYin political GreenCommons network
of interdependence,
sufficient left/right co-affirmation

Then, when reading,
If I am a parishioner,
(or a student
or a child
or some other non-elite identity)
Then someone
slightly less LeftBrain dominant
and more RightBrain affirming
empowers warmly with me.
