This Is EarthJust Us

This is Us,
my waist too big,
his check too small,
she’s not the fairest
of Them all,

We must confess,
This is Ugly,
we are a mess,
the Earth’s ungrounded
greatest pest,

But, This is Us,
our only home
to share it well
before its gone,
extracted
refracted
denuded
and fracted,
deluded
and impacted,
polluted
and red Raped… …

Sacred
health neglected
and wealth abused,
THIS IS US!
We’re all we have
and are,

All we remember
and imagine,
reimagine
our compassion
for Earth’s great final passion;
This is Us

Filled with puss,
make it
or bust,
some say
“dust from dust,”
our parts
too often rust,
we smell
of patriarchal must,
need everything
right now or bust,
This is Us… …

Not unlovely Them;
what will we do
when established trump
doesn’t rule
our wild and free imaginations
of how I can be,
live true to
my own flawed beauty,
re-connecting
re-ligioning
re-membering
through all our neglected wild cards,
This EarthTribe is Us

We’ve each made god
in our best imagination
of how united nations
remember recreations
of great and wealthy destinations
from home regeneration
for health to safely hold
future generations
singing this our great examination
of how we are
in this Great Green Transitionalization,
This is Us

When we
most brilliantly choose
to see
This Us is Earth
regiving birth
forgiving death,
our wide democratic
and deepest
existential mess,
This is Us.

Grown In To Be CowBoys

Please don’t speak his name.

Like ValdeMore
and more
and more,
history echoes such dark memories
fettered, now and then
by death’s final reincarnation

Because some will claim
he was a name
for Wild CowBoy Lost,
a martyr for washed out
useless
stupidly competitive lives
following red’s latest overpowering authority
shifting and shifty
while barely surviving Followers
deny, or even rapturously celebrate
Earth’s final redhot climate death

And others will take up his StraightWhiteMale
miseried tune
and persistently
resistantly speak his name
as if its true
red white and blue,

He was wild;
A cowboy who could buy your ranch
and you
and all your neglected and abused riches
for tomorrow,
and all Earth treasures
borrowed from health manifest,
destiny of win/win Wild Democratic Bounty,
beautiful green Us

Who barely remember
his weaponized
violent
CowBoy name.

Today Is Different

Today is assiduously
religiously different,
as I review our local RiverEast News.

Every week
Mike Thompson writes a solid Editorial
in a compelling voice.
I expect to only add
my hearty sacred
happy secular “Amen!”

Our nearly fearless Editor and Chief
calls for political “ACCOUNTABILITY!”
like so many others on bipolar Left through Right,

And those still hanging on
with battered nails
to quickly fading dipolar
in-between HAVE-NOT
anthrocultured primacy race
and HAVE
cash class
co-empathic consciousness
that renters and owners need each other
like borrowers and banks
yet feel as competitively apart
as victims and predators,
droning prey and patriarchal colonizers

Insurrectionists,
nihilistic HAVE-NOT anarchists
military industrialized
invade our sacred capitalistic space,
so now, I read,
“there needs to be
accountability.”

I do not disagree, BUT…
AND would you not agree
our shared future will be healthier,
and co-investing wealthier,
if predators claim their own responsibility
for exceeding civil and civic
democratically cooperative authority
through more slow-grown discernments

Rather than passionate placards
preferring hot
and sometimes armed
debate
drama
extraction
capture
imprisonment
enslavement
debacle
bacchanalia,
angry selfie Theater

Fueled by manufactured Bud
more than ancient cannabis buds.

Our angry Editor
lashes nationalistic Republicans out of town,
especially the transcendently unEarthly
Vice President Pence,
praying for “healing” and “unity,”
and not even close enough
for government work
invoking a sacred benediction
through end of term ACCOUNTABILITY!
of blind justice,
thus retributively more equitable
punishing non-mercy
served against irresponsible
angry words
and violently desecrating actions.

Interesting,
I also hear President Biden
passionately praying for “healing” and “unity”
Unity
Unity,
and more silent about punishing justice
held up to public scrutiny
of LeftBrain dominant, Accountability–
not so much RightBrain felt prominent,
CoResponsibility.

Retributive justice of Accountability
is for punishing
the autonomously guilty.

Restorative justice of CoResponsive
Responsibility
is for healing,
and resiliently lasting,
peaceful,
healthy interdependent unity

By divesting of autonomously unEarth-responsive
economic anthrocentric capital gains
and politically privileged responsibility
of patriarchal
capitalistic
military-industrialized
corporate empowered monoculturing supremacy,
anthro-irresponsible intent.

Why is it,
Mr. Editor,
I wonder wander
as I moondrift flow along,

Why is it more important
or realistic
or essential to punish
before moving on to heal:
to set apart and imprison,
to judge
and shame and blame,
before reconsidering unity
through faithful
multicultural dialogue?

This military-first preference
seems to reflect Chief RedCommander
inciting rhetoric
echoing Hitler’s strengths
of hate and violence
and deadening threat
of powerful justice
developing full-throttle
exclusively through our patriotic
overpowering position
of autocratic STRENGTH!

To hold the Alien EcOther
revengefully Accountable.

Actually,
as I dimly recall
my own unfortunate experiences with punishment
and healing warmth restoring healthier wealth
of personal political empowering responsibility,
nonviolent communication
includes inviting proactive practice
of compassionate therapy
through restorative justice,
pursuing multicultural pace
of EarthPeace,

More polytheistically matriarchal
than monoculturally
LeftBrain soulless solely Accountable
for missing opposite experience opportunities
more typically therapeutic
and conveniently,
even co-responsibly,
CoOperative Truths
building healthy democratic Trust.

I’m thinking I learn more powerfully
not from Strength, but uncapitalized weakness,
fluidity,
both/and nuance,
empowering eco-political responsibility
and disempowering ego-individual accountability,
publicized felony revenge
and misdemeanor scorn

Distract from wider experience
deeper Light
by exploring my own disconnected woundedness
evolving lonely feelings of win/lose mortal brokenness

Past failures in responsive civil commitment
to cooperatively hold
and cherish democratic sacred space
at home,
reading the weekly paper,
and WholeEarth abroad,

Rather than my boldest debates
to strongly compete in high risk
armed and violent communication confrontations,

Alarming punitive messages
using win/lose weapons of strong obfuscation,
which are irresponsible,
demanding that EcOthers be held apartheid Accountable
for lack of healthy healing,
cooperative unity,
co-governing skills for building
resiliently healing
trust-struggling
ongoing inclusive dialogue
relationships,

Religiously essential
to any healthy democratic
natural and/or spiritual experience,
constitutional
and/or familial,
anthro-centric
and/or eco-systemic health restoring,
globally political
and/or personal cooperative economics
of ecofeminist
green newLeft/ancientRight deal
co-responsible
resilient
and polypathically resonant
Ego/Earth co-investment

In a different
universally healing
unitarian tomorrow.

Mercy’s UnBlind Justice

I suspect mercy may be more resiliently empowering
for optimizing multicultural health
as compared to uniform law
and ordered, cookie-cutter, justice
unresponsive to ubiquitous mitigating circumstances
of unique spaces
and relentlessly changing times.

Mercy recognizes society’s environmental
historical contributions to loss,
to absence of equitable justice
more aware of each individual perpetrator’s responsibility
to society
to family,
to local community

Society’s justice,
without nurturing
restorative mercy,
speaks decontextualized
un-nuanced authority of capital-measured economic systems
including reasonable and fair expectations
of retributive law,
imprisoning neglect
and sometimes violently punishing order.

I wonder if both justice and mercy
improve therapeutic co-arising potency
restoring merciful justice
AND
revising metaphysically just
equitable
reuniting mercy,
co-redemptively resolving
what Earth has positively conjoined
in thoughtful truth
and felt beauty

Breathing,
re-animating,
enspiriting
inspiring nature’s in and out climates
of seasonal development,
undevelopment,
redevelopment,
anti-development,
pro-development,
fractal phases of leftbrain space
mercifully greeting,
halfway meeting,
bilateral rightbrain TaoTime

With merciful multicultural anticipation,
so less competitive room
for monoculturing white justice anxiety.

Advent of Silent Waiting

Advent of waiting

for 2020 to end
for 2021 to begin
for Christmas
for Hanukkah
for a new federal healthcare administration
for an old misogynistic maladministration to leave
for new hope
for renewed faith
for multicultural communication virtue
for green global communion peace

can be a taxing time of competitive ego-impatience
and/or a time of active
but silently curious ego/eco-systemic
polycultural healing,

A potentiality space
for transformative compassionate communication,
for deep listening
for time’s healthy systemic possibility
to induct anticipation of resonant resilience
peacefully
quietly overwhelming dissonant disabling anxiety.

Multicultural cooperative community intentions
lighten hoary histories
of personal and collective wounds
and straight white patriarchally privileged competitions,
disappointing divestments
from resilient green social-ecological capital

Curiously accessible
only through narrowly balancing
interdependently collusive health systems
devoid of internally win/lose competitive-bullying tantrums.

Dramatic tantrum competitions
are no substitute for long-term strategic
cooperative healthcare systems
courageously supported
by curiously dipolar co-arising appreciation
for multicultural spaces
in compassionately communicating TransitionTimes

Curious 20/20 Ways
anticipating 20/21 green Means
without need of passive patience
and with great cooperatively-held wants
compelling win/win curiously copassionate
global health communication wealth.

Dominating Capitals

Competitive capitalism
is about dominance,
which increases separation,
space between Winner haves,
and Loser have-nots

Degenerating into polarized views
more culturally dominant
than old-school cooperative middle
in-between
socio-economic median disappearances

Away from civically active democratic imagination,
focus,
functionally experiential frames
favoring cooperative democracy
over capital plutocracy.

Democracy is about win/win bicameral consensus
which grows integrity
between co-investing Haves
and HaveNots,
depolarizes our EitherHave/OrNotHave
eco-politically valued lives

Mediating in-between re-membering,
reweaving multigenerational cooperative
matriarchal empowering history
of mutually enlightening democratic health care

Through cooperative ownership
stewardship
citizenship
home and meal management
integrity of co-responsive thought and feelings,
polycultural communication
and multicultural energy systems

Refracting integral re-MEMEory
left-hemisphere empowering
right-hemisphere energetic win/win

Sourcing Cooperative Relationships

NonViolent Communication practice
is rooted in non-violent
healthy relationship empowerment philosophy

Unaffiliated with
pathological disempowerment theology
of personal SuperGod’s punishing injustice,
blame,
shame,
birth into guilty
sinful
despiritualized
dissociative EarthNature.

CoPassionate co- and eco-relational metaphysics
depicts a speakable universe
for sharing loving resilient communications
resonantly positive
meaningful
vocational
natural/spiritual epistemology,
theory of deductive/inductive knowability

Through experiential pedagogy
of deep learning-listening experience
within either or both theological and ecological settings
hoping for divine and/or humane vocational cooperative communications

With interdependently positive social-economic-political
health/wealth co-relations
through integral
holistic original Earth GeoMetric
NonZero SourceZone
of Yang enlightening revolutions
transubstantiating deep dark Yintegral powers
of non-violently resilient
reverse temporal interrelationship.

NonViolent nondualistic philo/theo-sophy
is rooted in deep learned compassion
multiculturally and polyculturally cooperative
socio-economic co-investing transactions,
co-operating practice
of non-violently ego/eco
inside/outside
self/other-passioning communication

In a verbal left-hemisphere dominant
humane/divine
ego/eco-logical
individualistic/communicantistic universe

Of nonverbal right-hemisphere unitarian
eco/theologically integral
therapeutically impassioned EarthJustice
speaking cooperatively out and in
secular/sacred vocations

Slow Grown Grace

Poetry
like unpartnered,
unteamed,
slow dancing

However rhythmically precise,
concisely devised

Does not dance well
in a highly competitive
youth-oriented
commercial entertainment market

But,
does better
in cooperative venue voices,
disproportionately enthused by ancient women
investing in large-print choices,

Preferring off-line accessibility,
and not too expensive!

More deeply embedded
in soulful
left and right co-empathic
slow grown engagement.

Start Making Love

I wonder if salvation

[and ecologies of cooperative win/win forgiveness,
and political powers of health-trusting democracy,
and investment economies of mercy
beyond a capital self-investment monoculture]

Cooperatively swimming
in too privileged
exclusive
chosen-people redemptive economies
can be therapeutically transformed
by multicultural non-violent trust-experience
of being reliably heard and steadfastly respected
for whom we most left-hemisphere transparently
and right-hemisphere vulnerably
are listening to just now

Not only on our most leisurely sabbath days
but also throughout our most anxiously dark survival nights

Greeted with win/win non-violent anticipation
rather than win/lose Business As Usual anxiety.

I feel awed by our social capital enrichment,
our democratically cooperative win/win potential
of re-cognizing to more deeply anticipate
every individual ZeroZone
as ego-1/eco-0-balancing potential
investing in our best day sameness,
rather than over-infesting
ruminating within our worst nightmare memories
of shame
self-blame
guilt hidden and tightly gripped

Inside feelings/outside verbalized
win/lose anxious
win/win anticipation thoughts,
re-memberings
co-empathic mirrors re-echoing
re-investing
re-ligioning
re-generating
re-experiencing
re-sonant
re-silient
non-silent yet non-violent
multicultural anticipation of profound similarities
anticipating good faith,
healthy freedom to co-empathically love,
in our wealthy bias for actively compassionate hope

More powerfully enlightened
than re-mainstreaming
de-capitalizing
dis-enfranchising
dis-empowering
un-illuminating
dis-eased
di-visive
des-pairing
dis-invested
anxiously un-conscious
Lose-ego/Lose-eco-systemic potential

Outside non-violently co-passionate anticipations,
health optimizing
social
and economic
and political
and personal
and community
and global multiculturing wealth.

So, I also wonder
if empowering good faith ecopoli-culturing communities,
if civilly enlightened public service economies,
are those best co-invested
in multicultural strong communion
through win/win non-violently flowing communications

Deep learning
multigenerational ecologies
of cooperative co-investment

Graceful Barbara

To Barbara

When Peace Warriors fail to breathe further into Earth’s sacred time,

they do thereby commend multicultural We

The People who are faithfully left behind

to continue cooperatively breathing out

our Bodhisattva Anthemed Paradise.

Grace…

Well, love then…

Most certainly compassion

Passions know we so richly deserve
what is Earth’s most passionate need,

Resonant voices belong
in Earth’s impassioned longing,

Resilient humane health passions
cannot cost Earth’s desecrated illness,

Knowing we so robustly reserve yintegrity
of Earth’s most luminous yanged out synergy,

Grace breathes in multiculturing laughter
and spews her wealth
of Earth’s polycultural health,
in and out
no longer inhaled
so no stronger exhaled
as any less
than our continued breath
in Earth’s most graceful solidarity

Of EcoParadise
breathed sacredly in pace together
and out for EarthGrace,
Passion’s timeless EgoPleasure

Breathing in Me
timeless revolutions
still breathing out healing faith
in EarthTribe wealthy We
non-violently

Recommending graceful meanings universal
Black EcoFeminist Lives expiring out
EarthMother’s wealthiest pray

Recommencing secular uniting purpose
enough for this continuous,
yet right now feeling discontinuous,
internal healthy day

Of inside unspoken grace…

Well, then bold
as well-sung love…

And, most healthy danced
EarthWealthiest compassion.
