Earth First

America First
is a RightWing monocultural intention
currently championed by Trumpians
and Republican Aristocracy of Evangelism
Tea Partiers,
by xenophobic paranoids
and sociopathic fascists,
by the economically blind
deaf
and angry
bigoted
terrified shouters;
just the opposite of dumb,
yet not cooperatively mindful either
of our global polycultural DNA roots
with universal democratic intent
toward international Golden Rules.

First,
“America” does not equal USA.
And America is even more than just North America,
including Central America,
now framed by a RightWing mental-spiritual Wall
against Mexico,
and, as for South America,
as any good Republican Catholic
(which may be a political-religious oxymoron)
or Protestant Evangelical
(which may also be a BadNews/GoodNews oxymoron)
will quickly remind us,
is the Wildly Wrong Hemisphere,
suspiciously socialist,
spiritually ambivalent,
even for a God
who was reputed to love
the entire Earth, equitably,
and is HimHerSelf more of a cooperativist,
in HisHer radically magnanimous love,
than an isolationist,

God does not keep all the best toys
for those awaiting
our long promised,
yet perpetually delayed,
Rapture.

This anciently felt Win-Win Rapture itself
has become more of a monocultural Win-Lose harvest
of pro-life WhiteHat born-agains
who define pro-life quite narrowly
to advocating for yet unborn human life
at risk of abortion,
without mentioning other
politically
and socially
and ecologically
and economically climatic abortions
on their peculiarly NonRapturous Way.

Also at risk of AmericaFirst monoculturalism,
which confines promised Rapture of Earth’s economy
to the competitive supremacy
of U.S. Trumpian BusinessAsUsual Elites,
the big and fat OnePercent
of our global colonizing US wealthy persons,
investing heavily in AmericaFirst policies,
which,
if more honest,
would be called
Top 1% of U.S. First and Last
PatrioticWinners v MatrioticLosers.

AmericaFirst
is a sugar-sweet way of saying
“The rest of y’all don’t matter.”

This is not the long promised Christian Rapture
of strong and healthy polyculturing democracy
as might possibly have been hoped for
by Constitution signing ForeFathers
born of more ecologically sound ForeMothers,
perennial gardeners and organic farmers
who were not, themselves,
particularly enamored of the top aristocratic OnePercent
in their 99% American nation-building immigrant time.

AmericaFirst
like all monocultural elitist intentions
and political investments,
forgets that economic and political walls,
once built,
work both ways,
and work against polycultural health
of economies
and political democracy of energy,
and positive nutrition ourselves,
ecology of global health care giving
and good Rapturous ecstatic climate receiving,
even for the Elite 1% of U.S. aristocracy,
and their potential 7th Generation grandchildren.

AmericaFirst
is aggressively rooted
in an inhumane replacement
of sacred restorative healing,
democracy’s inclusive vocation
of One Nation UNDER a Loving God,
within a LivingGod,
of and for a Positive Healthy PolyCulturing-Outcome God,

Setting aside secularized retributive justice models,
rooted more in God’s divinely-inspired Anger
as also Wrath against those who are too tolerant
of death
for Earth’s NonElite future generations
than actively pro-life of Earth
as iconic of all HerHis sacred forms
and flowing healthywealthy functions
toward regenerating Sacred EarthFirst.

We have no Christian-Republican Rapture on its way
if and when AmericaFirst finally arrives,
aborted from Earth’s diverse sacred natures
and cultures
and spirits
and dead on distinctly non-rapturous
anti-conservative of life arrival.

This is not just about climate change;
this AmericaFirst fake-rapture threat
predicts a future of ongoing
degenerative
climate pathology.

AmericaFirst is a punishing pathology
against all;
including the Elite U.S. OnePercent.

According to the Institute for Policy Studies,
already the twenty wealthiest U.S. citizens
have slightly more wealth to share among themselves
than do the lower 50% of U.S. residents,
who,
by the political way,
live disproportionately in RedStates
currently under advancing assault
by hurricanes and floods,
fires and tornadoes,
drought and shrinking aquifers,
chemically saturated rivers
and increasingly barren soil
and uprising polluted oceans.

But, hey,
what the self-inflicted hell;
AmericaFirst, right?
Never mind about Old School
restorative justice and peace,
nutritional polyculturing outcomes,
pro-sacred life
rather than limited to suboptimizing
anti-secularized death,
while supposedly worshipping a God
of EarthCreation and Love.

These are outmoded democratic ideals
for a healthy multicultural environment,
EarthFirst economy
and political subclimates.
And who retains any good faith
in such liberating,
but sadly fading,
Win-Win pipe dreams?

Medicine and Sickness

Medicine and sickness satisfy each other.
MotherEarth is medicine.
Where do you find yourself?
Zen Master Yunmen
China, 800s

Therapy and trauma require each other.
Ecological Earth is nature-spirit therapy.
Where and how
and when
and what
and why
and whom do you traumatize
with small-ego identifying Self?

You cannot resolve dissonance
with traumatic thinking and feeling
and competitive Win-Lose policy making
and economic exchanges
causing natural-spiritual anti-cooperative problems.

You can solve problems
with therapeutically inclusive planning
and ownership
and mutually grateful consciousness,
cognitive/affective therapies
for Win-Win overpowering Win-Lose past trauma.

At what point does therapeutic integrity
become headed toward traumatic disintegration,
more cognitive-affective dissonance
than coherence,
transparency,
safe vulnerability,
rather than depressing
this unlabeled suppression
of integrity our bicameral selves,

Medicine for all Earth’s Tribes,
for restoring virgin forests
and pure oceans,
seas,
lakes,
societies,
cultures,
rivers,
streams,
root ego/ecosystems?

Before he was embraced
by his Democratic Party,
Senator Obama
not yet nominated for U.S. CEO
wrote about political compromise
as contrasted with spiritual integrity.
He quotes Benjamin Franklin,

“I would rather have it said,
He lived usefully,
than,
He died rich.”

The difference between living spiritual integrity
and Business As Usual
rich but dying Trumpism,
as Franklin and Obama see
healthy usefulness,
is something too valuable
to be bought and sold-out for;
While Trumpism
has no eyes to discern
this difference between health and wealth,
between loyal integrity of mutual Win-Win cooperation
and hoarding excessive riches
and influence
against future Win-Lose competitions.

Antagonistic plutocrats,
including zealous evangelical supremacists
filled with religiosity of doctrines and words
and empty of spirituality
informed by personal experience and consciousness,
measure integrity
by buying and selling their compromised competition values,
while a truly integrated democratic disciple of integrity
of healthy usefulness,
uses cooperatively healthy v. pathologically competitive
to measure different Tipping Points
between positive and negative values,
like hoarding,
and other monoculturing supremacist
negative tendencies.

If I were an Obama Foundation,
I would gather private and public foundations
and community organizer Allies,
to support indigenously owned openings
of cooperative MotherEarth Cafes,
where homeless and malnourished and criminalized
and victimized
and ostracized
would gather in PeaceCircles
to read our poetry,
to dance our cooperative rhythms and cycles,
to single our gospel anthems
to feed on and breathe and absorb organic nurture
of and for Audacious Hope,
to learn to play smarter ecopolitical Win-Win games
of healthy integrity.

MotherEarth Cafes across these Uniting States
hosting local Democratic Parties
for their open microphone meetings,
setting Town Meeting Agendas,
PermaCulturing Designs for ReStoring Peace and Justice,
in cooperation with Republican Committees
and Libertarian Committees
and Green Committees
and Rainbow Committees
and Feminist Committees
and OrganicGardening Committees
and any integrative cooperative ecopolitical party
who bothers to show up
sharing this belief
in healthy usefulness
for measuring authentically wealthy values
and pathologically disintegrative disvalues.

To contain anything
is to exclude something,
Whether we speak of our interdependent Universes
or our therapeutic medicines,
ZeroSum
Not-ZeroSum
and Not (Not ZeroSum).

Therapy and trauma invite and engage each other.
Ecological Earth is nature-spirit therapy.
Where and how do you continue traumatic
degeneration stories?
And why?

WinWin Invested Wombs

Before dimensional
discontinuous investment returns
of MotherLand
there was a water womb
of continuous gifts
growing through primal matriarchal relationship
of deep gifting vulnerability.

Intimate wonder comes prior to thoughts
of becoming more deeply connected,
invested,
in both natural and spiritual ways.

Warm water womb
births landscapes
for exploring nature-spirits,
whether emerging from a distended womb
or a fertile egg
or a vulnerable seed
filled with wondrous unfolding potential integrities
of previously well-Landed interrelationships.

Restorative justice and peace
originates here,
in water’s intimate embryo
fueled by a gift economy of WinWin Wonder
predicting politically powerful cooperative relationships
should we Land
and continue regeneratiing
restoring Zero-Sum balance
love
harmony
grace
synergy
between Yang passions of well-wombed egos
and yin’s restorative wombs
sufficient
perfect
nutritional nurturing integrity
of purpose
with healthy intent,
vocations reweaving wealthy Landed cultures
born of EarthMother’s vulnerable
intimate politically double-bound warm waters.

For there to be retributive Land beneath our exhausted feet
there was first restorative water
to welcome our potential gifts.

For us to become filled with Earth’s spatial wonders
there was first a timeless bilateral gift economy,
sufficiency as grace
through vulnerable sacred nurturing,
secular nutritioning,
WinWin dipolar exchanges,
wealth of healthing Wonder.

Before the dualism of landscapes
there was water immersion.
Before restorative water,
waves of redistributive winds.
Before winds of time and change and revolutions,
sacred WinWin Wonder.

Economic Tricks with Political Treats

Economic Tricks as Political Treats
from the Peace Council of MotherTrees

Herein lie my tricks with treats,
said she.

I imagine with my family,
and my on-line cooperative Allies,
and then my most wildly cooperative neighbors,
how we can best eco-trick
and poli-treat
together.

We imagine
what this community,
and then this nation,
would look and feel and sound and smell like
to walk outside
and about each day through night,
year after year,
and not once wonder
if I am safe
or if some random act of armed terrorism
might attack myself,
my family,
my community,
my nation,
my planet’s nations everywhere,
through remaining ecopolitical times
for tricks of cooperating treats.

Once peace becomes actively imagined,
then expected and anticipated
for multi-generations and all polycultures,
herein lies our WinWin cooperative magic,
tricks and treats,
not WinLose tricks or treats,
plans for necessary self-defense.

Once globally imagined
in mind with eyes,
in heart with listening ears,
in body by following one’s WinWin nose
and positive psychology tastes,
both sacred and secular,
then who would settle for Win/Lose
ThreatenWar and hope others Lose
more than you,
faster than you,
for in the end,
RightBrain WinWin
both hears and sees,
we all return with what we arrived,
minus Mother Earth’s
warm EarthMother WinWin womb.

My WinWin magic,
said soaring sorceress,
works best when polypathically democratic,
just as we are
at our EarthTribe WinWin best
and brightest ecopolitics.

And in this fundamentally trusting democratic way,
is our WinWin magic
to not continue with both our balls
or both our tits
all knotted up about each other’s supremely divine
and yet WinLose self-victimizing egos,
when we already,
with both Left and Right
as YangOut and YinIntrovertically double-binding know,
WinWin’s magic equates
two tricky balls as Originating Seeds
for and with two retreating tits as Originating Root BiLateral Sacred System,
with waves of love unfolding in-between
from EarthMother regenerating
back toward MotherEarth degenerated
with WinWin dominating in-between
wu-wei
magic tricks with treats,
said ecosystemic sorceress
and her son and daughter
and her EarthMother’s iconic WinWin tits
and tats,
yins and yangs,
intuitive Rights with deductive Lefts for
WinWin solidarity.

My magic wisdom
was shared by the Matriarchal Council of MotherTrees,
who know this land is cooperatively owned by all the forest
sticking WinWin together,
just as this planet grows cooperatively regenerate
by all WinWin sacred ecologists
tricking our treating cooperatives.

Problems with our dark magic voodoo ecopolitics
LoseLose pathological,
ensue when Left no longer reverences Elder Sacred Right,
when Yang turns patriarchally against Yin,
when egocentric dark magic
masquerades as healthy wholeness
All PureWhite religion
and prejudicial enculturation
against full-rainbow polypathic magic
of Matriarchal MotherTree Muses
written WinWin ring by ring regenerative,
and amazingly ego/eco-logical,
MotherEarth,
Gaian Goddess of MotherTree Councils
for practicing Earth-optimizing
winning tricks to win timeless treats
of EcoTherapeutic Magic.

My magic sorceress of Original Source
remembers to reweave
unfolding (0)Sum reminders:
Our best regenerative strategies
have been optimizing non-competitive defense
through more cooperatively-owned
and mutual bilateral offensives.

You did not see or hear this from me
unless, of magically Original (0)Sum Core Course,
as Matriarchal EarthTribe We
noticing and planning,
plotting and deliberating
this eternal timeless day and dualdark night
economically tricky
cooperatively growing eco-ownership values
of ego-political poly-optimizing treats,
in both secular and sacred full-octave tones
and hues
including ReGenerative Council of All EarthTribe.

So Let Me Tell You

So let me tell you,
if I’m looking between lives
with multicolors
and gentle genders
and green cards
in one graceful hand,

And Trump-heavy President fixation
away from restoring
Earth’s ecojustice for All
on the other RightWing denomination,

Then let me tell you
seeking Trumpish twitters
of self-congratulating trumphalism
as more patriotic
then loyal honored deep Yintegrity

On Gaian liberated knee
as if too matriotically humbled
to stand for Yangish
and self-righteous thee,
then let me tell you
I am so very quite sure
your poppa raised White elitist you
to spell anti-matriotism
with a positive patriotism Peee
only while standing up
as royal Thee.

And let me vice versa tell you,
if you find loyalty
and honor,
civility and mercy
and compassion taking on a matriotic knee,

Then your Momma,
well let me tell you,
she spelled patriotism ecologically right
with left,
bicameralishly.

Which, if you spell justice
with domestic peace of clear blue mind
you suspect dipolar
co-arising
matriots
of bipolar disarray
too wild left,
and let me tell you,
no way we’ll move love with Mother Earth diminished
down to a way out somewhat sleazy loose-lived girl
only good for lunch.

It just might become our hunch
hanging out with a more permaculturing bunch.

 

Note: For me this piece works best as jazz riffs rooted in the melody for

When I Fall In Love…

Golden Year Wishes

Darling,
I should like to do something more helpful
about this continuing feminization,
marginalization,
disparagement of full integrative value
for cooperatively-owned and managed
ecopolitical corporations,
incorporations
bio- and eco-systems.

Good idea, love.
How do you think,
or feel,
or whatever you intuitively do,
this competitive infestation
of patriarchal dominance
began?

I always assumed
this was a virginal matriarchal womb
creation story
of cooperative Paradise Lost for lack of
reforesting health and climate care receiving and giving,
governance,
a rich creolic permacultural collusion
between matriarchal GrandMother Moon nature
and patriarchal SunGod OnFire spirit.

Maybe it’s just LeftBrain dominant me,
but that way of seeing cultural evolutions and revolutions
seems more of a hot mess
than a rational explanation
of nature-spirit nondualisms,
co-arising.

Hey,
that’s what I’m talking about!
RightBrain matriarchal cooperators
have been nurturing polycultural bio-
and eco-systems
while LeftBrain Patriarchs
compete to get their swords and tongues,
and any other appendages and/or digits they have,
in edgewise
for self-aggrandizing WinLose evolutions,
which matriarchs see as missed opportunities
for fueling cooperative revolutions
of co-arising ownership,
nondual self with other management,
domestic and global WinWin administrations
principles for polyculturing
polypathic healthy wealth outcomes.

Wow.
So now the ecofeminist matriarchal WinWin cooperatives
are taking back Mother Earth?

No. Not at all.
We never sold Her to you WinLose patriarchs
to dominantly start with,
part with
from earliest not-so-virginal,
yet creolic acclimating cooperative, wombs
of Gaian emergent matriarchal Principles
and procedures
and policies
for Golden Rules of ReGenerativity
and mythic Golden Ratios
of well-seasoned,
ripe polypathic proportion,
highest and best interdependent re-investments.

Well,
if us Patriarchs wanted to make a belated competitive offer,
how much would you Matriarchs think She might be worth?
Keeping in mind waste-stream depreciation trends
accelerating as we continue reiterating
in not quite empathetic circles
and marching against square and static root systems.

If you have to ask,
you don’t have enough spiral-crystal bling,
not even for Yang’s optimally cooperative fair share.
