Healthiest Wealth of Loyalty

We each and all have, I suspect,
a universal rightbrain multicultural awareness
that patriotism
risks degenerating into leftbrain fascism,

Isolating nationalism
self-righteously defending militaristic supremacy
and patriarchal privilege of an apartheid State
moving toward fear-mongered isolationism
supporting competitively debating
predative politicization
of capitalism

Rather than recognizing ourselves
as nations resting and wrestling
and co-investing
on interdependent continents
articulating green/blue loyalty to Earth
and no less nation
or solitary incontinence.


Back the Black and Blue

What do you do
when you’re a black cop
at a Back The Blue protest
with a Black Lives Matter
in front of you,
to left and right,
and possibly pursuing your rear
and career?

Which direction
does your identity choose,
if not to feel troubled
by a false choice
either way?

Is there some platform,
strange principle,
peculiar position
among Mattering Political Black Lives
that you cannot have
a healthy vocation
while carrying a ballistic weapon
and continue being a Black Life
in good and valued standing?

Or, to Back my Blue,
must I succumb
to StraightWhitePatriarchal Privilege?

Are there any color boxes
still widely open
and deeply inviting?

Can I not aspire to become
a non-binary bound,
ecofeminist for EarthRights
to health and safety
and peace
and restoring green justice?

and appreciating
only Earth as Master,
Sacred Eden.

Discarding old school memories
of enslaved custody of imprisoned eyes
and ears for hearing,
suppressing custody of healthy taste
and fragrantly smelled beauty,
of cooperative touch
and globally compassionate feeling,

Regarding green lives matter schools
and reschooled deep learning
full 20/20 ownership
of Black and Blue
and Green proud lives
for multicultural mediation.


Healthy Democracy

Democratically effective governance
of people
and planets
cannot begin with degenerative violence
without ending as militant predation,

Which does not sound like healthy
and cooperative co-invested democracy
even to a child
familiar with playground bullies.

Rather than roots in “retributive justice”
religiously licit order,
healthy democracy stems from restorative win/win peace,
multicultural nature spirits
and bio-systemic sacred wisdom,

At least interdependent wisdom enough
to avoid militaristic patriarchal predation
and pollution
of all that Earth holds sacred.


AzaRiah’s Earth Requiem

He was too old
to speak of active hope
for ancient creamy dreams
not yet boldly told

Inviting curious homeless nomads
to imagine what we could become
if we were not yet brazenly born
into this time of tragic burning,
predicting hunger,
and coastal drowning nakedness.

Into this epic brown despair
AzaRiah was innocently born
within fading red shadows
of a crumbling
white cathedral.

She never knew an old Golden Era
of endless capital expansion
and monopolistic worship
defying GoldenRules
applied to those like her,
the least and blackest last
of Earth’s Golden SpaceTime Ratio.

AzaRiah’s stormy education
had no LeftBrain Ego v NotEco luxury
to ponder why 2D full moons
are also 4D revolving half-lit norms,

Why spatial nomials
predict temporal bilateral binomials,

Why positive polypaths
predict not not negative
polyphonic ultra-nonviolence,

Why binary Zero
fulfilling One bipolar Zone
predicts double-binary 0/1
wave-linear dipolar co-arising
win/win DNA resplendent Tone,

Why fractal-structured regenerativity
nativity predicts octave spiraling scales
of resonant
resilient non-degenerativity.

She was much too busy
singing with hurricane winds,
listening for flaming conflagrations
of reactionary hate,
inviting still small ecofeminist circles
to dance again with GrandMother Moon
in compassion’s silent storms,
self and other recreating
perpetual healthcare perception

Belonging in grateful silence
where her grandfathers
spoke with terrified tears
of Earth’s great loud longing.


Taliban Tales

How wrong could I be
were I to assume
most Taliban leaders
in Afghanistan
have aging parents?

Especially mothers,
as it is not specifically healthy
to be a male in such a violent
nutritionally-barren place

And Taliban parents
might also have kids hungry and thirsty
and afraid to give us grandkids,
for economic and political starvation reasons.

It might occur to healthy energy democratic leaders
thinkers and feelers
that feeding
and restoring healthy therapeutic ecosystems
could grow better polycultural Afghanistan wealth outcomes
promised by Allah
and YHWH alike.

Restorative, rather than more extractive, retributive justice
could work more WinWin effectively,
than continuing bad karma retributive violent goals
of assured mutual environmental destruction
and inhumane death and dying and terrorizing
paranoid children,
and other forms of almost incalculable dismay
through strategies rooted in punishment
and threat
and counter-terrorism terror,
visiting the sins of fathers
upon Yang soldiers
and Yin sacred daughters and aging mothers alike.


Organic Developers

Permacultural Designers
are taught to multiply the number
and networking depth
of relationships
between species
and organisms
and systems
and cooperative economic networks,
rather than the simpler adding functions
of traditional agriculture;
if you plant eight crops,
you get eight maybe interdependent functional relationships,
and maybe not so much,
especially as we learn to add the evolutionary trajectory
for number of functional relationships
between interdependently planned species,
organisms, etc.,
across multigenerational time.

A’s are given out for diversely sustained polycultural outcomes,
and F’s mean LoseLose failed
to sustain a quasi-healthy unbalancing,
running too multigenerationally fast
out of control,
monocultural outcome.

There is something different
about a third generation poor single Mom,
as compared to first generation.
The failing number of functional relationships
of primary health focus,
of nutritionally diverse balance,
of color, harmony, seasonal symmetry,
mutually cooperative atonement,
as compared to a first generation poor single parent
whose parents were actually better off
in ecopolitically nutritious relationships
than the dwindling aspirations
landscapes and climates
of their own monoculturing children,
and their drowning in toxins of despair

We have this same multigenerational disparity,
at least here in the U.S.,
between Third Generation plutocratic supremacists,
rich in wealth
yet poor in mental health,
in their dwindling number and depth of functional diverse relationships
with other species and organisms and cultures and religions,
elite partnerships and competing unto death incorporations
and public sector democratically oppressive
lack of inclusive health and climate care assurance,

As compared to their First Generation
of nouveau riche,
Horatio Alger stories
proving the Original EcoPolitical Principle
of interdependent needs and wants
make systems grow longer,
sustain diverse functional relationships,
mutually nurture health
which is,
after all,
a system’s only true WinWin polycultural longterm outcome.

In this light,
I find it fascinating
to explore the similarities and differences
between a late middle-age denialist Donald Trump,
third generation wealthy,
and Elder socialist Fidel Castro,
from at least three generations of not wealth,
just regular folks
doing the best they cooperatively could
given humble circumstances,
and yet great communitarian
multiple-functional relationship expectations
across subtle nuances of race
and religion
and culture
and multi-sensory color and fragrance and taste
and philosophy.

I wonder if this has anything to do with
why you find cooperatively supported small farm and garden
straight to locally driven or bicycled market
nutritional economies,
and national health care,
as a right to cooperative life
multigenerational expectation
in Cuba,
outlasting Castro’s own adolescent and young adult
violent dictatorial issues,
not trusting his own inherited experience
as a magnate for permacultural peace
of multifunctional-multigenerationally deep
and rich
healthy relationships.

Perhaps if Donald
had not been born Third Generation Entitled
and if he had another decade or two
to grow into more mature healthy adulthood,
he could see White House potential
as therapeutic for all Earth’s interdependently cooperative health functions,
rather than his current myopic preoccupation
with what a toxic swampy dump it is,
with how to sound like his cock
looks as big as his militaristic fascist walk.

After all,
a younger Fidel had similar Trumpian oppositionally disordered issues,
counting his number of guns
rather than remembering to stay focused
on growing the number of multiplying functional nutrients
interdependently cooperative relationships
across this network
we Commonly hold
called Earth.


In Season And Out

In and around Auschwitz
Barbed wire still weeps
through too long denied rain.

In and around Annihilation
Denied climates fast creep
toward pathology’s pain.

Through surrounding Anger
Charged hate denies sleep
for those who must explain.

In tyrannic Acid
Barbed boundaries sweep
out lies of monstrous strain.
