Feather Pillowed Fighting Stalk

My handsome brown-skinned husband
was once again velvet-voiced complaining
just this morning
while I was staring
glaring at my overstuffed sock drawer,

“You are so consistently ambivalent
and reliably inconsistent
I have no idea what’s coming next
from your lack of erection direction.

You ‘both-and’ everything
hopelessly,
yet tirelessly,
looking for the perfectly balanced win-win
in a win-lose
eat or be eaten world.
I have no idea
what you would do without me.”

Although I somewhat more hopefully resemble this remark
and I can see he is not not wrong,
or right,
totally dark or totally bright,
all his “either black or white”
left-brain dominance
does sound impatiently judgmental.

So, in an impulsive moment of ginger anger,
I respond

“You are so poor
you’ve never had two co-incidental thoughts
to rub together.”

“Is that like a mixed metaphor
or something sinister
unpulled together?
Anyway, that sounds shockingly ungenerous
from win-win you.”

“Sorry if I hurt your feelings.”

“What feelings?”

“I think my question is
Which feelings did I hurt?”

“My feelings about personal wealth
and left-embodied with right-mind cooperative
win-win political health
to handle your dipolar co-arising appositions.”

Maybe I’ll go with one old dark sock
and one white privileged.

Ballistic ForceSourced History

Like lack of preventive health care,
far more love is lost
through passive neglect
than active abuse.

And so it is
perhaps a negative corollary
we, most of us,
have failed to notice,
neglecting the industrial, then colonizing
history of unhealthy abusive gunpowder
moving toward western colonization
from Eastern playful,
and considerably more mindful and lovely,
origins of fireworks
spraying loud and joyful light
like stars falling
through blackened skies.

Eastern uncommodifying innocence,
decorating dark red skies with multiculturing light
rather than desecrating warm Western bodies
with loss of loving life
in search of royal golden treasure.

As YinSource moved into western European industrial revolutions,
She transformed into a hot Yang trade commodity
for exchanging power
overwhelming indigenous people
in Africa,
then the Americas,

Useful beauty tools
now deadly weapons fired and forced
for asserting Yang’s autonomous ownership
over darkly wild slaves
and their sacred magic habitats
of panentheistic humane-left/divine-right
organic health/wealth belief systems–

Where Yin waters dawn equally
and interdependently
within Yang-nurturing MotherLands
gilded by generous GrandMother Moon
and GreenBlue OceanSky Woman.

Most of us have also failed to notice,
without abusive monoculturing
colonizing intent,
a reverse-reversing time metaphor
of healthy-wealth YangForce power with YinSource,
receding into autistic lack of WinWin
embedded compassion care,
preventive holistic medicine
of multiculturing light
humane resourcedf
divine preforced

Further receding with indigenous wisdom loss,
from historical West
back to pre-historical East
wombed Source

Now engaging our globally embedded lead
in restoring Yin/Yang climate
thought-forced
and felt-sourced
co-present restoring justice,

A higher priority than Western Yang
ballistic abusiveness
without Yin’s health and beauty co-assertiveness,
non-violently communicating together
bicameral Win/Win grace
love
lived health
in NorthWest ego/SouthEast eco-appreciative red/green balance,

Long feared
by kleptocratic blue-blood Pharisees,
Win/Lose mafia governors,
and Lose/Lose nihilistic Sadducees,
kleptocratic aristocracies
themselves sadly enslaved
by swords and daggers
of abusive,
then neglectful, Roman colonies.

EarthTribe Shadows

Earth’s universal Shadow
shades whatever Earth is not.

Ego’s universal right-hemisphere Shadow
shades whatever EgoResources left is not.

What Earth’s potential positive win/win
sacred integrity is not
shades whatever negative Ego win/lose secularized morality is

Capital-invested in conserving privileged wealth
divorced from unprivileged decomposing health;

What Earth’s liberally positive win/win values
and potential health integrity
would more happily project
and transfer through mutual co-investment.

Egos stick in left-brain dominance
courageously fascinated
with negative unhealthy win/lose suboptimizing trends
derived from ZeroSum energy conservation games
to lose the least political face possible
over the largest period of fragmenting eco-systemic time
passes before lose/lose inevitable
egocentric economic mortality.

Just as Egos can more liberally balance left/right
multicultural prominence
curiously engaged in positive health
win/win integrity
not-not ZeroSum hypothetically hyphenated in-between
enlightening co-passioned games

To win the most faces,
hearts and minds,
spirits and natures,
nurtures and healthy nutrition
digestively possible

Over the shortest here/now
through timeless eternal
interdependent
bilaterally stretched out
without Shadow stressed in Time

As win/win inevitable ego/ecocentrism
balancing positive liberal shading negative not-not conservational
interdependent left/right
holistic-health/holy-wealth integrity
of co-passioning Promise,

Father/MotherLand inside/outside
Earth’s universal multiculturing Shadow,
in-between win/lose bipolar
political patience left
and win/win dipolar right
timeless ZeroSoul’s eco-celebration
cooperative affinity
compassioning integrity.

Resonant Judgments

I would not judge someone
and then some dreadful thing
or some nasty place
or some too distant time.

Let me, instead,
invite judgment from
that one relationship in real spacetime,

Until we each and all resiliently find
what we need
and want
for healthy wealth co-acclimation

Open,
free of negative judgments against,
free to
and for cooperatively changing transubstantiation
known and felt
into warm seasoned creolicizanation
for solidarity
of resilient vulcanintegrationalization,
intra-
and inter-nations.

I would instead be judged in wealthy favor
by some singing simpler one,
healthier flavored for some wavey-swinging hyphenated thing,
abundantly resonant for some pleasantly compliant place,
rooted in solid resilience
for 4D mind-maps left multiculturing race
and emotive time’s
right mind
rhythm seasoned grace
pace of timeless space

Let us inside trade instead,
invite outside gratitude from,
that one perennially cooperative nutritional relationship
in real bilaterally timed Earth space,
timeless intrapersonal place,
humane-divinely transpiring
turning
twisting
twirling
teasing
untruncating grace.

Flighty Entertainments

Why does flight feel more lightly entertaining,
yet less engaging,
than fighting?

Laissez-faire thoughts lighter
than ponderous confronting ruminations,
Why?

I would not expect a babbling infant
to understand why
WinWin cooperation deeply entertains
for learning health-enhancing cultures,
ego/eco-therapeutic religious experience,
bicamerally democratic government,
multicultural compassion-nurturing
Golden Rule co-governance.

This omnipresent co-relational laundry list of engagements
I would explicitly
cooperatively
compassionately
spiritually
and naturally hope for
from mature entertaining adults
immersed in nonjudgmental egoNows
and nonperforming ecosystemic Heres
curiously ego-echo familiar
as WinWin stunning synergies
of primal ZeroZone co-presence
breathing in engaged acceptance
to breathe out health-optimizing
non-egocentric interdependently co-acclimating performance.

Why does LeftBrain
hope to escape
from yang-competitive Win/Lose risks,
feel safer,
more defensive,
more protective
of egocentric BusinessAsUsual performance,
while chauvinistically leaving RightBrain
in Lose/Lose hopeless despair
or Win/Lose lack of integrally fulfilling performance,
or unnoticed and shunned
alone with WinWin impressions
of healthy economic entertaining opportunities
alternatively missed,

And Left/Right ecological
and theological
and governmental
and religious
and multiculturally compassionate wealth
of thoroughly engaging non-violent health-opportunities?

But, really, LeftBrain competitive ego-performances
are not so much RightBrain embodied integral brainstem
deep learning
cooperative WinWin health-care synchronic,
resiliently satisfying
like harmonic singing
and synchronized dancing
and writing ego’s Win/Lose comedic/tragic
peak and valley experiences,
enculturing nutrition-stories
of healthy and unhealthy input breaths
causing wealthier entertaining output humors,

Muses,
Performance notes to self:
Now is time for ZeroZone
to breathe in regeneratively again.

To beat bicamerally
therapeutically
compassionate co-engagements again,

To become WinWin ecstatically co-entertaining,
once again
fully cooperative awareness
perceptively enraptured,
witnessing Earth’s natural/spiritual entertainments.

CoOperative Mindfulness

Every newly innocent day
after complexly creolizing night dreams
I hear and smell and taste and see and feel
some thing
some co-related becoming
that more and less
kills me
with delight and terror,
that leaves and comes over me,
another weedy needle
in Earth’s haystack
celebrating integrity’s light.

This is what I am born and unborn for–
to taste and see
to ecologically speak and theologically listen,
to lose my fragmented ego
inside this just-right healthy spirited world–
to instruct our virally competing RightWing dominance
over and over
in co-acclimating joy
and Left-wealth of Right-health acclamation.

Nor am I thinking and feeling
about the ecstatic exceptional,
the terrifying LoseLose fearful,
the madly dreadful,
the lavishly extravagant
loves and hates–
but of the everyday.

The green commons,
the ordinary grey-scaled drab,
the daily ego-withering practiced presentations
competition principles
WinLose evolutionary policies
LoseLose devolutionary powers.

Good bilateral intelligence
of deductive thought
with inductive feelings,
EcoSoul reminds EgoSelf,
How can we help each Other
by healthing our Selves?

Egos grow wise
with such WinWin teachings
as both these and not not those–

The untrimmable in-between Left with Right bright
of Earth’s co-acclimating enlightenment,
Ocean’s fertile shine,
Prayers nutritionally offered
out of strong-rooting common grass…

Touching With Kindness

Some parents and cooperative school teachers
and classroom and bus aides and drivers
are discussing government regulations
restraining transportation providers
from providing therapeutic touch,
because of an over-compensation
for emotional dysfunction behaviors
leading to appallingly irreverent touch.

Toxic touch critical events
predict long-term non-lifegiving,
non-wellbeing consequences
in young
vulnerable,
transparently frustrated learners

Typically,
healthily born with WinWin internal/external co-relational cognitive assumptions,
confluent expectations,
positive neural receptivity is therapeutic
while negative interceptions are toxic,
pathological.

We discuss our unhappiness
about current administrative restraints
on giving healthy therapeutic touch,
but no such caring restrictions apply
to receiving healthy
appropriate
therapeutic touch
from our wounded,
Win/Lose fragile,
fragmented,
cognitive-affective dissonant disarranged
kids.

We seem to be heading in a direction
that would more positively hypothesize,
Despite past risks of exposure to toxic touch,
and apathetic untouch,
we do not want to restrain therapeutic touch
with our arms and hands,
our feet walking and dancing in cooperative solidarity,
stepping out rhythmically, together
with our voices of kindness,
mouths speaking and singing
with ringing patterns of kindness,

Integrity fully-embodied
to support resilient WinWin therapeutic touch relationships.

One of my daughter’s school transportation providers
learned therapeutic massage from a yogi,
Who began their first hands-on learning class
by reassuring those about to receive a student’s touch,
and those about to give their first intentionally focused massage,
that there is only one mistaken choice to avoid,

Massage, any form of verbal or non-verbal touch,
turns from therapeutic default
through toxic abandonment of communication, untouched apathetic restraint,
and also when too aggressive, much more so when actively violent,

Toxins,
nonverbally and/or verbally non-communicating counter-therapies
are Win/Lose neural neglect,
lack of therapeutic mindfulness,
to not touch by therapeutic intent at all,
whether with our WinWin intending hands
or solidarity voices
or any other of Earth’s neural receiving and giving
eco-therapeutic receptors.

So, I remind my daughter
of what the yogi message therapist said,
We only want to touch with kindness,
With our hands
and with our voices,
with our preferably dancing bodies
and our more therapeutically singing mouths
and signing hands
and signaling feet.

Her transport team listens,
laughs,
maybe a touch more relaxed
about possibilities for therapeutic WinWin touching
wounded Win/Lose dis-encultured students
on their often too-neglected journeys
in well-being life-skills
for enhancing healthy wealth resilience.

While us caregiving adults
continue to cooperatively talk without touching
among our comparatively privileged selves.
