I Have A Son

I have a son
who worries

His economic vocation
requires a political vacation
from the rest of us
and perhaps even light of sun

Which hardly feels sustainable
or resonant
and certainly not win/win resilient.

I have a son
so brilliant
he could choose to hunt
and gather shopping carts
at Walmart

And find a way
to help shoppers feel
he is vacationing
with
and for all of us.

I have a son
whose most visible mistake
is believing his anger and fear
stem from missing invitations
to enter his one true
politically correct
and socially esteemed
vocation

As if any employment
he could embrace
would not become more sacred
by his warm communication,
cooperative invitation,
profound sublimation,
ecosystemic renunciation
of fear
to make wrong
ego-uncentering annunciation
articulation
of what he means
by joining in
with this multiculturing humane race

Of confusing
competitive and cooperative
eco-political pace.

Healing BodyMinds

After Yang’s struggle
suffering
seismic seizures

Dawn’s Yin’s peace
restoration
expansion
without grasping
even life v death

Before Yang’s next struggle
suffering
seizure
battling ego’s timeless absence

Like Left hemisphere’s
embodied dominance,
shadow subject
of objective dreams

Then Right hemisphere’s energy prominence,
bilateral compassion;

Yang’s ego-natural body
reincarnating Yin’s primordial
eco-spirited mind

Where polynomial 1
seizes 0
to make polypathic 1,
and not not reproducing polyphonic 0,
and every revolving
spiraling
hypersuasive tipping point
in-between

HolyWinded Spirit’s Earthly journeys–
Wealthiest introspection
for healthiest extraspection;
atomic images
becoming shivered waves.

Auspicious Superstition

What are differences
and similarities
between suspicion
and superstition?

One seems rooted in natural
and sinister
causes.

The other in spiritual
and ambiguous
pauses
and becauses.

Although suspicion
could be about grace,
causes of anonymous compassion,
yet of a physical
and natural
source–

Probably not metaphysically
spiritually
resourced.

Whether suspicions
and superstitions
are of negative
or positive
or ambiguously curious intent,
may have more to do with what we can hold
and invite
with an open hand
and mind

Than what we feel we must grasp
and autonomously own;
extract from living Earth
for mere ego-serving purposes.

What differences
and similarities
co-arise
between anxiety
and anticipation?

What are differences
and similarities
between being a spoke
and becoming an organic part
of a revolutionary wheel
revisioning 20/20 climate climax

An ambiguous
tipping pointed health legend
for global regenerations
of wealthy superstitions.

Growing Up Divided

Growing up in twentieth century USA,
without a recent immigrant history,
nor a Native American indigenous heritage,
just another in-between victim
of Straight WesternWhite Male privilege,

I recall a smirky fuss
about Eastern mind/body connection,
pseudo-science,
nondual
nonviolent
inscrutable
paradoxical
unrealistic philosophy,
meditation as if medication.

It did not occur to me,
in my enthusiastically extractive
and exhausting youth,
that in the East,
Buddhist and Taoist teachers
might have indulged
in a smirky fuss

About Western mind v body disconnection,
secular science severed from sacred arts,
dualistic divine spirit v corrupt nature theology,
just war theories
rooted in retributive justice theory
instead of restorative peace experience;
body medication
without mind meditation.

In my more enthusiastically inclusive
and creative-tensioned age,
it occurs to bicameral mindbody me,
that Eastern ecosystemic connection
is also Western ego-recentering compassion,
experienced by Left-dominant hemispheres
as felt by Right-prominent
mind/body biospheres,

Searching for why binomial structures
religiously emerge from organic co-relational nomials,
dynamic spirit/natured variables,
inside/outside co-determinate sociables,
analogy,
theological ecology.

Polynomials,
western polypathic autonomous variables
and eastern polyphonic relationships,
Earth double-binding polyvagal dancing bodies
wrapped around,
and developing through,
revolving polymorphic minds
equally not not polynomially independent,
free,
liberated,
communal saints
and divided sinners.

Waking Up Lumpy

Wake up grumpy
tired
much older than yesterday.

Day fifty-seven,
an irrationally
not nice
non-round number,
since defiantly challenging daughter,
with the contextual right-brain unhealthy intelligence
of a sociopathic alligator,
last came home from school
or anywhere without me.

Remembering her school’s response
when I suggested her six-hours-per-day aide
five days per week
not be switched out every week
or two.
She doesn’t do well with transitions
including interpersonal change,
lack of power to control
a significant Other’s time
to stay
and go.

While aware this is an issue,
their larger concern was burn-out.
Aides couldn’t tolerate the intensity
of her hostility
and constant need
need
need for attention,
for food,
for distraction,
for action,
for…

Wondering how the best of her school supporters
would feel after 228 consecutive
six-hour shifts

Without any supervisor
capable of reassuring me
or him
or her
or them
or us
of how many more to go
without adequate social distancing
within our lumpy quarantine space.

No possible reassurance
or warning
we’re just getting started,
about to end,
over the hump,
or not so much,
actually.

Perfect.

Definite only about feeling humped out
and jumped in
lack of ease,
sucked out potential for unguarded rest.

Feeling sorry for myself,
yes,
but also for her,
and for all of us
who have taken risks
to give long-term care
where receiving care in response
is not a reasonable
or compassionate
expectation of hope-filled ways,
faithful truths,
loving lives

Quietly waking up grumpy
in unsolidarity
unsolitary confinement.

Taoist Skills

 

Yin listens for baseline safety,
absence of aggression,

While Yang speaks up
and out
for social
political
economic significance
without tainted infamy;
saintly synergetic
means not sinnerly energetic.

Yet ego safety
rests more likely yin flowing
in our autonomous insignificance
through resonant democratic choice-making
co-passionate Yang political health
economic wealth
worshiping sacred transcendence
of felt and needed EarthMother
and Her neighborly starlight
regenerating baseline health as safety.

Viral Social Nursing

Nursing is to restoring peace,
restorative win/win justice,
as judging is to punishing injustice,
retributive win/lose justice.

Nursing ecosystems
and nurturing egocenters
can often be used synonymously,
as nursing is to nurturing.

To nurse a baby
ecosystem
is first to nurture a cherished developing infant
non-zero zone egocenter.

We, nurses and nurturers,
share a nutritional history
of healthcare giving safety
and receiving, in return, wellbeing significance

Delivered best
and most durably,
resiliently,
when care works in coincidental resonant ways

Nurturing all win/win
multilateral directions
ecosystemic
metaphoric,

All polypathic nursing selections
seductions
egocentering healthiest wealth,
analogic

Ecological nursing
felt empowerment
and needed co-investment
in ego/theo-logical nurture.
