For Political StoryTellers

Dear journalists,
investigative reporters,
and supporters
of strong and free

When elective office candidates,
from dog-catcher
through UN CEO,
claim to champion freedom,
far more than all other candidates
competitively left non-elite behind,

Please ask,
Freedom in which direction?
Freedom to heal
our fading cooperative,
organically multicultural,
complex ecosystemic,
robust wealth climate,
local through global networks?

Or SuperElite freedom,
threatening liberties to destroy alien,
resilient polycultural health?

Or, more ambiguously,
some of confusing both?
And, if so,
Which is freedom
for loving polypathic cooperative health?
And which are competing liberties
to destroy WinWin future organic wealth?

More LeftBrain autonomous
monoculturing power
to do as they egocentrically please?

Or more RightBrain interdependent
polyculturing freedom
to do as we ecocentrically co-invite
long-term health-wealth
resilient eco-relationship?

It never hurts to ask
except when candidates
don’t even understand our questions,
and often stopped listening
for WinWin social-political opportunities
so very long ago.

When the price of milk
involved sucking cooperatively provided EarthMother nutrients
and not competing to buy patriarchal assets
and xenophobic votes.


Freedom Offenses

In Nebraska,
a conservative barn RedState,
the “corrections” system,
and allies,
stakeholders like extended organic families,
came up with a revolutionary goal
during a FutureSearch
WinWin discernment process
to learn from each other
what to do about Offenders…

Social and political offenders,
Economic and environmental offenders,
Family and community offenders,
Child safety and global health offenders

Most, essentially all,
longed for a “healing environment”
for inmates.

I feel like an inmate today
in an overcrowded
toxically rabid
Trumpian prison
for the duration
of a fake FreedomDay.

While he
and his self-declared SuperElite allies,
co-disinvestors in public health,
Win/Lose stakeholders,
throw away our cooperatively owned
WiseElder GoldenRule key,
remaining more aggressively free
each nightmare night
to destroy any HateCrime remnants
of therapeutic climate health commitments
to fellow Ego/EcoCentering Inmates.

Whether in RedState Nebraska
or GreenState Massachusetts,
whether wild red FirstNation
matriarchal healers
or Green mythopoetic Gaian holonic Goddesses
of polypathic
Eco/TheoLogical RightBrain
WiseElder harmonics,

We all
deep learn inside
longing for,
and belonging from,
cooperatively healing environments
for EarthMother imprinted DNA
Strong and fluid
independent interdependent inmates.


My Cafe CoOp

In one sense,
the Cafe CoOp
started as my therapeutic retirement dream.

in quite another
the CoOp goes back to when I was eight,
and I thought,
assumed really,
everyone indulged in Thought Experiments
about what would my optimal Eden Paradise.
restoring peace and justice across Earth
look like,
feel like,
smell like,
sound like?

And how are these
a response to what I do not currently prefer
to live with,
and without.

Perhaps in both ways,
I began seeing how cooperative aspirations
might become cooperatively owned and, coincidentally,
managed for mutual health care optimization
of all us CoOp EarthCafe residents,
supported by therapeutic restorative peace
and ego-ecojustice teachers
and mentors
and scripture scholars and WinWin systems analysts,
and cooking and preserving and medicinal herb gathering classrooms,
indoors and outside,
and, yes, of course Permaculture Design and CoOperative Implementation
and ReStorative Justice business co-investors in healing,
in family health optimization outcome projections
for 2020 ReStorative Justice
as this healthy community
polyculturing peace-filling outcomes.

All this came quite near a boil
during 2016’s Retributive Nationalistic Patriarchal Lose-Lose Selection
against Constitutional protections of multicultural Welfare pursuits
and against purity and loyalty to democratic global Unity
for PolyCultural Outcomes of Freedom
and CoOperative WinWin Liberties for all species
and subclimates.

My ego’s Yang longing for unity
belonged within Yin-Holonic Restorative Justice aspirations,
EgoLeft with EcoRight,
cosmic cosmological consciousness
of CoOp Cafe karma
growing through self-other co-empathic awareness.

In ZeroSum equivalent FourDimensional RealTime
bilateral Left-Right ecological history
of enculturation,
regenerative trans-poly-perpetuating sacred substantiation
we all live creolizing best
through Golden NonDual Appositional Rules
to empathize with each Other
within LeftYang and RightYin
as outside too Patriarchal RightWing
with Matriarchal NonZero-Sum WinWin LeftWing suppression
of all CoOp Cafe EarthTribe members,
Permaculture Designers,
ReStorative Therapeutic Justice Advocates.

Why would anyone in their right balanced mind
not want to restore healthy justice
especially while Trumpians and supremacist homophobic allies
rule our most nuclear-risk of climate permanent unrest?

The CoOp Cafe
and our after-school
ReStorative Justice and Peace YouthLeadership Project
in these ways and means
with middle school and high school
and community college students
and performance and journalism teachers,
then adding ReStorative Justice Parent Alliances,
and an early-afternoon crowd coming down the street
after their baked chicken lunches
at St. Vincent de Paul,
asking these same questions,
engaging in similarly themed Thought Experiments.

How do we know 2016,
or even worse,
will never happen again?
In the U.S.,
most climate urgently,
but also across Earth
in our Cafe CoOps,
wherever we can find and build them together,
on-line, indoors, and outdoors
sharing EarthBound 4D SpaceTime
fractal and seasonal DNA ReGenerative Health Values
informed with RNA bilateral Ego-RootSystems
providing true and faithful and just EcoBlossoms,
YangReasoned–IntuitiveYin Seasoned EnLightenment.

I just assumed,
when I was eight,
that these are the ways
others would co-define Paradise
as both Interdependent Earth
and nondually dipolar EmptySet EgoIdentity interiors
because how could we possibly be anything at all
without OriginalMother Sacred Intent
becoming anything more or less
than PolyPathic Yang = Not(Not PolyPhonic MatrioticYin)
because +1 Yang must always double-bind notnot (0),
just as uracil’s form
cytosine’s notnot-folding-unfolding flow functions
of bilateral heuristic waves.

If notnot (0) First OriginalCause,
then no possible way
to doubleBind 4D SpaceFractals
through BiLateral Strings
of ReStorative-ReGenerative Justice
notnot what and when and why Lose to Lose
when each is free to choose
Win economics to Win ecologics
notnot (0)Sum bilateral ego-eco-consciousness,
when speaking trust within multiple multicultures
and transacting cooperative therapeutic business
and performance arts
and writing,
and singing fair and true and just and beautiful lyrics
and dancing lyrically,
standing with vulnerable comedy and tragedy stories,
sweeping in chi gong co-op circle sessions,
breathing through yoga stretching circles and squares,
triangles, maybe,
that would be good;
could feel healthy
for cooling internal climates.

Our Cafe CoOp
started as a collective dream
about where we might feel and be safest
in our restorative vulnerability of co-ownership
with each other,
co-responsible interdependence
between consumers and producers,
between suffering traumatic past investments
and offering care-giving and -receiving therapies
for parenting and healthy childing,
for teaching and wealthy studenting,
for mentoring and menteeing grace
as healthy gratitude,
positive karma attitude
for mutually cooperative multicultural restorations.

So, less mutually competitive mistrust,
bad faith,
negative fear-mongering lifelessness,
depression and repression
and suppression
of all Matriotic ReStorative Wisdom Circles
and ego-eco balancing nature-spirit practices
of bilaterally empathic practices
for basic enthymematic
co-empathic development
of maturing GoodFaith CoOp Cafe Management.

In one multiculturing sense,
our EarthTribe Cafe CoOp
started as everyone’s therapeutic retirement dream
coming together
for mutually restorative purposes.


Faithful to Love

For Paul,
originally Saul,
and first generation Christians,
growing in spiritual development
and natural Body of Christ health
begins with hope,
becoming cooperative faith
in potentials not yet seen
or smelled
or felt,
emerging full-blown love without monoculturing
sectarian limits,
even without monotheistic limited anthro-centric imaginations
living fully within four-dimensional SpaceTime
RealTime equivalence.

For Enlightenment ForeFathers,
and Sacred Matriarchal Mothers,
and their first generation democratically developing kids,
worried about past and future plutocratic threats
to our MotherLand,
while growing in spiritual and natural
and political and economic health,
begins with three core values:

1. Life, which is not yet threatening climates and landscapes of death.
Cause for positive Earth-patriotic hope.

2. Liberty,
which is freedom from competing dissonance,
Cause for good news faith in mutual cooperativity,
for WinWin
positive emerging ecopolitical outcomes.

3. Pursuit of happiness,
which is freedom from pathology,
retributional punishments,
terrorizing military-industrializing mutually assured destruction
of ourselves,
our kids,
our planet
through ballistic technologies
designed against ego and eco-sacred peace therapies

And designed for adding further strength to already plutocratic threats
against stronger trusted multicultural global non-totalitarian democracy,
love of benign cooperativity,
between individuals and nations and species,
both natural and spiritual cultures of health care giving
and restorative justice as peace receiving
Grace of love
to grow further multicultures
of EarthTribe Enlightenment Happiness,
both Sacred and secular
Positive Health-Love.

These are what our parents meant to share with us,
our schools intended to listen for within us
to restore healthy democratic trust and hope,
responsible freedoms of good multiculturing faith,
authoritative secular/sacred research
in these ecopolitics of loving cooperative global happiness,
for first generation gospel tellers
through Enlightenment progenitors of democratic Welfare
to create a more perfect Union
without plutocratic,
or fundamentalist monoculturing uniformity,
degeneration of PureLove’s perfecting Happiness.


Lady Liberty Speaks

It should be harder,
and perhaps it could,
to not be known
and recognized
and to not find icons of and for gratitude
throughout my everyday.

The forbidden fruit
of Trees for Life and against Death
living in peaceful forests of Good and NotNot Evil,
grows both political trust and mistrust
between brothers and sisters,
parents and children,
grandparents and parents,
Elder religious cultures
and younger secular national-states;
Fruits of our individual
and collective
polyculturally regenerate sources of free nutrition,
domestic and outlying climates of health
rather than too Yang competitive
LeftBrain played-out
Either-Or business as usual,
God made might right
in a long-fat dog eats
and enslaves
and buys and sells,
inferior alien marginalized bitches world,
witches with glitches,
social switches for disloyal snitches.

My issue with being relatively ignored
and taken for granted
by employees and employers,
by parents and our kids,
by leaders and their ideological followers,
is less about being treated like a post-menopausal bitch,
and more abut how polyculturally significant
to both history and herstory
have been post-menopausal bitches,
dragging queens.

It is our marginalized wisdom
and sha-woman Creation Stories,
myths and legends,
mythos with logos,
our Sacred Ecology
of which Eden was originally composed
a matriarchal-patriarchal Paradise
special made for everyone
from Virgin Forests
through post-men-o-pausal Bitches,
witches with wicked wisdom,
liberating truths of polycultural Earth intent
more gloriously statuesque than any fading
patriarchal monoculturism.

It could be harder
and even meaner,
and more enslaving
through repressive monocultural anthro-supremacy,
to become known
and celebrated
in icons and ions of dynamic balance,
harmonies of kinder words
for those with embryonic
reweaving collateral of memories
within our Original Tree of Good and NotNot Evil
of and function-formed crystal-clear resonant harmonies
of fruitful free nutrition
in Eden’s Great Transition
for Trees of HealthyLife
and against equating sometimes bitchy RightBrain Yin
with dualdark Death.

It should be easier
to be known by knowing others,
to be loved by loving others,
to be freed by freeing others
to become more egoLeft-ecoRight balanced
by balancing our bicameral Lefts and Rights
with others,
polyculturally grateful,
rather than against others,
with monoculturing
elitest intent.

It should be easier
to be loved
for Bodhisattva Bitches
that we are together
a badge of matriarchal courage
to matriotically embrace optimizing WinWin outcomes
for all Earth’s creatures
Yang long and fat
and Yin-bitch small yet resonant.

It could be easier
if Trees of Good and NotNot Evil
did not insist
on being such a Bitch,
and could polyculturally
and polypathically
and polyphonically
and polynomial relationally
intertwine Gaian Hypotheses;
the GoodWitch regenerative words
which sometimes feel and act like witch-hunters
against an Anthro population
still working out important differences
and climate issues
about what is healthy harvest
and what is just plain
monoculturing rape.

Lady Liberty speaks matriotism
to compassion worn-out patriots,
it’s not just me
against you.

It should be harder,
and perhaps it could,
to not be known
and recognized
and celebrated as icons of mutual gratitude
throughout our everyday.


Thanksgiving for Independence Days

Among PermaCulture Designers,
planners and cooperative schemers,
choreographers and mappers,
therapeutic lyricists and historical poets,
and probably comedians,
there is a saying,
a principle of experiential truth:
For every healthy function
we discover many nutritional elements.

This has to do with commitment,
most resonantly shared with GaiaEarth,
to invest in polycultural multi-enculturing functions
to disinvest away from monoculturing
monopolistic pathologies of hubris,
a human environment supremely out of balance
with humane cooperative intent.

An important cultural health function in the U.S.,
as in other enriching societies,
is celebration.

Celebration is a health function
with many memorial and traditional elements.

Two of these celebrations
are in creative tension within U.S. cultural revolutions:
Thanksgiving Day and Independence Day.

Thanksgiving is healthy
and draws on elements of gratitude
Earth and life as sacred ecological relationship,
as our shared evolutionary history
rooted in cooperative nurturing elements.

like liberty and freedom,
is also healthy
and draws on elements of revolution,
too easily violent and emphatic disagreements
about redistribution of power and wealth
from royalist plutocratic homes
to mutually cooperative democratic co-investment networks
thankful for this new opportunity
to grow both Thanksgiving cooperation
and often-competitive WinLose crises
on thresholds of new-found Independence Days,
not possible to resolve
without dominance of interdependent Thanksgiving WinWin celebration,
memorials of Earth’s bounty
inviting humane benign parasites of Independence
from Earth’s other native elements,
back into more grateful abundance
through interdependent health functions
of more polyculturally empowering Thanksgiving.

Gratitude warmly embraces growing less defensively reactionary
about our grown-too-nationalistic and egotistic elitist
Independence Days.

To optimize health functions of Thanksgiving
and Independence,
Earth invites us to remember how ecosystems
create these two co-arising intentions together,
as root systems of multiculturing grace
interdependently flower mutually-held and celebrating
Independence Days
with ecopolitics cooperatively-owned and self-governed
liberty for all
capable of reweaving
Earth’s WinWin Thanksgiving Day supremacy
of healthy democracy for maintaining cooperative ecology
rather than over feeding wealth-hoarding plutocracy,
wherein every day is entitled to Christmas gifts
without the gratitude of a healthy Thanksgiving child.

While it is possible to celebrate Independence Day
each in our own King George throne room
and firing-up our own gated backyard grills
of me-first red meat,
Thanksgiving Day more patriotically invites
a table large enough
for all us native creolizing waves of immigrants
to give thanks for all Earth’s healthy gifts
brought together by these
nutritional polyculturing elements.


FullColor Revolution

We might
we must
we mightily engage color’s radical invitation
toward democracy,
in which black camouflages equal opportunity,
creolizes equivalent enculturations
of diversity’s tones and hues
and historic chilling cries.

We could thereby release
this collective stranglehold on white
as might
and right
or fight
absence of color’s ecological transparency,
vulnerability becoming
whichever rhythms and patterns
and designs embraced by history’s plutocracies,
aristocracies of inherited reasons
and power over multiculturing regard
for more nuanced beauty
as shading good and graduating vital
dense and high and deep and rich
refracting black’s full unweaving potential
in wheels
and spirals,
octaves of transmorphing
resounding form
with fertile major and minor functions;
prime polynomials
and sublime notnot fully stretching spiral binomials.

Earth is no more
as simple as white over black
emerging from dualdark
before color-fractal light
than merely patriarchal competitions
or matriarchal cooperations;
color speaks and thinks,
resonates and resolves and reweaves
more richly promising
than polarizing extremes,
neither black nor white
or probable
much less primary
without triaged enlightenment
inducting from within,
deducting with without,
hypostatic co-arisings
of sacred-secular
heavenly Light bespeaking Earth nutrition’s humus
ringing left as ultra
with right as violet,
black dipolar light
less bright,
spilling shades of grey
to red and blue
yellow green
just right spacetime
ego-eco balancing
identities dipolar
inducting from embryonic matriarchs
deducing with wisdom’s wealth of reasons
for and of
within and yet beyond
regenerating dipolar seasons
revolving revolutions,
time’s color passing
passioning promise,
integrity of speciating spectral
hue and cry
time and pitch
resonant polypathic
polyculturing outcomes
polynomial Earth resolving

We are so statically
and strategically stuck
between exegetical polarities of black on white
and transparency of white supremacy
over black opaque mysteriously unexplored
under-valued rich density,
matriarchs riding co-passioning patriarchs
and patriarchs overpowering matriarchs,
we miss robust complexity
midway between
where all our best and brightest
ecopolitical opportunity
our reawakening
full-color claims of freedom
strains of rights
blends of fearless liberty
gathering redolent resonance.

Each of us,
regardless of our position on Earth today
has emerged continuously from cooperative matriarchal embryonics
back through time,
across diversity of organic species,
on back to synergetically regenerate organisms
ringing back as forth,
our polyphonic full-fractal spectrum between
beyond grey-scale lines
of black Yang fully interdependent
loving white Yin empty
polypathic promise.
