Metamorphosis

Innocence of new birth
Such a sacred thing.
I could not recall its distant unreborn pleasures.

Too worn away
A mundane day after relentless
smoothed-over passive day.
I can only take my fading remainder measures.

Between innocence and torn elder
A midway ride tripping through sacred sighs
and secular screams.
I would seize such natural spirited treasures.

Complexity of integrity
Such a mundane past birth
yet sacred future rebirth.
I have not yet reached for daring resonant fissures.

Innocence of reborn birth
this grey stormed winter reassures.

Losing My Competing Minds

A mind,
I think,
should be a brain
still in a living organic body
in homeostatic normative relationship.

A human mind
could become mid-sized, just right,
and left,
not too hot, not too cold,
not too light, not too dark and heavy,
yet sometimes too complexly dense with chaos theories
rather than synergetic creolizing hypotheses
favoring thermodynamically ego/eco-balancing biosystems,
relying on double-binding feedback loops
of endosymbiotic cooperativity
within ectosymbiotic acclimations
without,
maintaining polypathic health
of multiculturing inter-relationship,
dipolar interdependence
slowly creolizing wealth of further enculturations
into even more polypathic bicameral balance.

A mid-sized just-right humane ecosystem
is a horrible potential to waste
to too-closed off entropic loss
of regenerative energy,
dissipating off into cognitive-affective dissonance,
both verbal and non-verbal dismay,
near death before open-systemic maturing time.

Aging is post-revolutionary degenerative maturation,
quieting grace.
Suicide and depression,
repression and ecopolitical suppressions
are pre-revolutionary,
before their regenerate maturing fullness
of fertile time.

A mind
is a brain
within a fertile
well-timed
pre- and post-revolutionary
sacred acclimating body.

Soul Food Recipes

Rob Brezsny reports
In 2004, San Rafael hosted a World Conference of Soul-Making
resulting in three schools for best practices,
to which I will add one more.

“The Ruminators
theorized that humans are born without souls
and can create them only through arduous,
disciplined rebellion against all belief systems.

The Resonators
agreed that soul isn’t innate,
but insisted that soul-making is by no means difficult
…gathering good stories is effective
and not at all hard.

The Revelators
said every person is born with a soul
in seed form,
and need only discover the ‘blueprint’ of that seed
in order to attract the experiences
necessary to draw out its potential.”

The Regenerators
agree with all of the above,
born with a potential integrating seed,
we struggle with dissonance of painful ruminations
and celebrate their great climatic Creation Story culminations
to uncover resonantly notnot
reiteratively positive soul-revelations.

Once again, adding a culminating four-fractal fold
to three interdependent spatial dimensions
closes a four-season structured development story
openly inviting our regeneratively expectant revisit
for yet more soul food
made of premillennial manna.

Decadent Zeroisms

When we are eighty
wisdom of eight
conjoins balance of zero waste.

When we are seventy
full weight of seven
cohabitates balance with zero-timeless patience.

When we are sixty
co-arising comprehension of six
connects to close harmonize full octave
zero through eight syntax,
a rhythm standard RNA design
for optimal natural polynomial performance.

When we are fifty
we face mid-century crisis
to reconnect five’s eco-centric superlogic
to dominantly reductive maturing ego,
or continue disconnecting
egocentric economic imbalance
competing with ecologically inclusive co-redemption
of all polycultural nature
shrilly screaming regenerate cells
demanding we return to slower
sustained optimal zero-centric pace
of co-arising life.

When we are forty
fatness of four
closes an unwelcome zero-platform door
on halfway to eighty.
