Of ecocidal mean

Without theistic meaning
or even humane purpose

Toward tip pointed bleeding

exterminating,
forced breeding

Although understoried
and less Capitalized survivalist
Vermin are not so patriarchal
when young families thrive
matriarchally attached
to future’s healthy green Commons

Green revolutions
not inhumanely win/lose

Of blue sky peace

Speaking of Common Goods

What I wanted to say
the other day
when exalting healthy kindness
for potentially freeing us
from Straight White Men’s great meanness

Costing Earth’s Green Commons
and charging disinterest against
co-investing in healthy wealth
of all we cooperatively cherish
as good-wellness humored
for me
and win/win curious We

Surpassing them then
now here
and future well-humored there.

What I had hoped to say
and would have said
had I felt less concerned
I had already bled too much
and listened not enough
to you here YangNow voices
also listening for YintegralHere choices
of those long, yet immortally, dead

Classic classless classy prophets
of Goddess Earth’s climatic doom
sometimes fear-mongering,
too seldom cooperative kindness managing
Mystics of multiculturing
inter-religioning Creation’s kind absence
of permanent
monotheistic
LeftHemisphere capitalist gloom

Dark nights
predicting dawn’s healing brights
LeftBrain universal kindness thoughts
enlightening
RightMind unitarian nonviolent feelings
empowering

Two appositional
dipolar co-arising world views.

I would have more concisely spoken up and out
for Earth’s health and safety
optimizing our Polyculturing Communion,
positive Political Correcting
Common GoodHumored Good

Got the godly goods
with more catholic unitarian focus
on Pope Francis’s
Principle of the Common Good
(#156, Laudato Si’)

Might playfully confront
his internal intuitively wise Pope Franny
commonly and goodly,
healthy and wealthily speaking
of kind and kindred sacred ecology
inseparable from the notion motion,
and ecopolitical win/win revolutionary commotion
of Earth’s Green Common Good

RightWing seen and heard
through a dualistic Either sacred Or secular
evolutionary assumption
our best competitive nationalistic win/lose zero-sum right
to upper caste Patriarchal/Capitalist scarcity
promotes humorless defensiveness,
hoarding
un-encyclical anthrosupreme
nastiness.

And yet,
in a still small bicameral voice,
co-empathically sensed
as EarthMother’s ecowomanist choice
Polycultural Communion
invites a more positive win/win ecology
of politically correct kindness
free
and freeing.

This deductive Left and Right inductive
health wealth safety
synergetically speaks well-humored
scientific/aesthetic
Truth/Beauty CommonSense,
a central synergy
and interdependent integrity
Principle of EarthWealth Justice.

With a bit more timeless moment,
we could have,
and yet remain feeding
still eating from too gladly shared
Earth’s Common Health/Wealth Good

The exponential NonZero Sum revolution
of WinLeft/WinRight reconditioned evolutions

Invoked by pro-life ecopolitical co-investing groups
and our cooperative
UniversalLeft/UnitarianRight individual members
co-empathically co-enlightening,
thoroughly embedded nature/spirits
not so frightening,
empowering health green curious Common Good
access to our own
Polycultural Communion
positive humored fulfillment brightening

Not at mean expense
and exorbitant StraightWhiteMale
LeftBrain dominant disinterest
repressing hypocritical bad-humored faith
defiantly disenfranchising future EarthTribe regenerators,

Health positive prophets and mystics,
internally organic oceanic ecopolytheists,
with great health/wealth transitioning potential
through PolyculturalCommunion
shared kindness narratives
and not so much controlling PatriarchCompeting Win/Lose
me meanness Degeneration Stories
of coming Lose/Lose disinvested unhealthy futures

Death of PolyCulture
dual Left/Right dark
nihilistically sardonic
excathedral Papal Rapturous
eloquent uncatholic elegance

Unable to see ourselves drowning
in PatriarchalCapitalist
sacramentally scarce
unkind and meaningless
humorless
ego/eco-baptismal waters.

Compassion Stories

What
to my LeftBrain appears
but Santa CapitalistClaus
and his eight domesticated
and monetized octaves
of neuro-sensory reindeer

To my LeftBrain
appears to not be
much of a healthcare giving
Creation ReCreation Story,
neither astutely ecological
nor gracefully polyculturing

Feels to my sacred Earth Right MindBody
like not becoming a wealthy grace receiving
PolyPathic ComPassion Narrative,
panentheistically theological
and nonviolently multiculturing

These two, together
recreating co-investing Stories
of and for
compassionate health systemic
redevelopment and restoration narratives,
natural and spiritual,
secularly sacred,

Scientifically polypathic,
integral, holistic, sacredly erotic
exotic
sensual climaxing WinWin systemic climates

Restoring healthcare
rooted in negatively redefining research
isolating violent neural ego/eco-crashing sensory
crushing Lose/Lose inside/outside withdrawal
and concomitant LeftBrain anthrosupremacist denial
of Earth climate
public outdoor wealth
and inside health degeneration

Where once lived regenerating co-empowerment,
ecological theory
of polytheistic divine nurturing light

On integrity’s potential
climaxing health experience
of polypathic theoretical wealth.

Controlling Narratives

It all comes down to

Do you believe more
in enlightening original Earth creation stories
or
in empowering messianic passion narratives.

What comes down
inhaled
drawing in light
may reasonably appear like a monotheistic weapon
to avoid patriarchal-capitalist loneliness
loss

What goes out
exhaled
empowering polytheistic tools
to embrace polypathic-cooperative
co-passions.

What are we coming down and up
in and out toward?

Life,
love,
purpose,
destiny, I suppose,
whether secularly and democratically
universally enlightening multicultural stories
or sacredly and theistically
unitarian narratives
co-empathically empowered.

Yes, I see
your massive LeftBrain verbal story
Truth OR Fiction

AND then raise our RightBrain cooperating feelings
mythically narrating more.

NotChosen Stories

What are these days of mourning stories
I choose not to tell about myself,
my emotion-driven journeys
to windy hot imagined future
and remembered warm wet green
and impossibly resilient blue past
pre-historic paradise,
before people
and our mosquito
and cockroach
and locust
and indoor rats and mice
win/lose devolution issues.

Are these stories
whispering epic ego-passions
darkly overpowering all social evils?

Do these evil antagonists
include evils of avoiding sojourner pilgrims
triggered to mimic violent intolerance memories,
rightwing hypocrisy-feeling nightmares
rewinding leftwing conspiracy fears
and anciently divisive angers
about mortal time’s insufficiency
of how to provide ego-autonomous identity’s
most resilient health insurance
against landing on the Loser side
of left/brain either/or
Win/Lose evolutionary capitalistic
patriarchal-privileged Theory

That EcoFeminist Win/Win Wisdom Stories
are a leftwing climate pathology claim
to reclaim power
against their Win/Lose RightWing Enemy.

Are these untold ecofeminist stories
of dyspeptic depressions,
aggressive repressions,
domestically violent discommunications,
bipolarizing hypocrisy dissonance
of too much cognitive/affective distance?

Left and Right hemispheric division
triggering sensory/neural Lose/Lose
anxious absence of communicating
nutritional nurturing
positive energetic spirited
Earth-dynamic dimension natured
win-health/win-wealth resonance

Lingering back through indigenous
sacred good news
health creation and re-creation stories
I would prefer to hear
about myu own multiculturally cooperative self
recalling local cognitive/emotive community win/wins

As ego-patriarchal Yang
slow-grow empowering narratives
enlightened by eco-feminist Yintegrity’s potential
epic stories of re-creating
healthy imagined futures
empowering wealth-rememberd pasts

In warm wet eco-climate
wombs of pre-imagined healthiest past
non-tombed
doomed Earth
created for dealing rapturous lose/lose
eco-nonsystemic eternal burning death.

Green recreation stories
not chosen yet
to retell together
gathering win/win thanksgivings
remembering Here
reimagined Now
a host regenerating Gratitude
for sacred stories not yet remembered,
chosen,
and yet not privileged

In our common EarthTribe beginning
there was Light,

So, even before this Light Story
was our Dark Story of TaoTime
and then Sacred Yintegral Light
emerging nondualistic comparative darkness

EgoLight and EcoDark Stories,
Subjects with exterior unchosen dark objectives
ruminating in perpetually revolving night
in Gaia’s sacred non-violent womb
back toward tumescent Boom

Ejaculating Yang/Yin stories

I’m Fine

His life felt sick.
Filled with ick

And she was sighing,
inside dying.

Yet, when asked,
her response
entirely unresponsive,
“I’m fine.”
puts her compassionate listener
in a double-bind.

Do I ask her if she is intentionally lying
or irresponsibly
out of her self-isolating mind?

Neither one
feels more kind
and patient,
still, uncommunicating
and yet curious.

Could it be
she is embarrassed
about being merely mortal?

A caregiver
without sufficient tools
or even weapons
to assure EarthTribe’s
resonantly healthy non-confrontations
with degenerative trends
sometimes overwhelming
normal regenerative
narrative twists and bends,

A mother
who must only be
an omnipotent caregiver,
without sustained support
as one of us
co-arising care receivers?

What good is universal health care giving
without reciprocal
compassionate care receiving?

And, how could we,
why would we,
when should all Earth’s caregivers
deny our patriarchal climates
of pathology?

When our allies are sick
and filled with unanticipated ick.

Silent UnPrivileged Stories

When I was a Big Brother
for Jason,
an African-American 10 year old male,
we went into his apartment
so he could look around
for a long overdue library book.

As I accompanied him
from room to sparsely furnished room,
looking in nearly vacant closets,
cupboards,
drawers,
the only book we found
was a phone book,
looking silently neglected
much more than actively abused.

My first white male privileged
feelings about his Mom
had to do with blaming her
for probably not even feeling ashamed
for her irresponsible choices
while economically and politically administering
their bookless house
in this pre-WWW information age.

But, then I began asking questions.
What could Jason tell me
about his Mom’s life
when she was his age?

What were stories
familiar to her,
read
or retold
or experienced
and re-experienced,
therapeutic or traumatic?

Through this widening narrative moment
of multigenerational conjecture,
hypothesis,
questioning,
contemplating,

I also learned to question
what traumatic straight white male stories
are experienced by gay
and bisexual
and transsexual 10-year-olds,
regardless of racial identification,

And by 10-year-old girls,
perhaps regardless of racial identification,
or even further amplified
by being doubly,
and silently, outside
straight white patriarchal privilege.

I found myself
suddenly
tearfully
incapable of briefly imagining
much less deeply,
unflinchingly contemplating
the trauma
of growing up poor
and lesbian
and black or brown
or too red
or too yellow
without any books
or stories,
read
or retold
or experienced
about how her 10-year-old life will matter,
could be healthy, someday,
would ever be felt safe,
unless held shamefully silent,

Not appropriate material
for books
or retelling
or experiencing straight
white
male dominant stories,
economic
and political narratives
about retributive trauma
and not multicultural
restorative
democratically inclusive therapy.

Congressional Grace

I’m still reading Your Resonant Self,
by Dr. Sarah Peyton,
speaking of how contempt
destroys relationships
formerly cooperative
and, thereby, healthy.

Disgust about oneself
and contempt against Other
are interrelated,
like ego and eco,
like Yang and Yin,

“Humans seem to be capable of disconnecting from others
[and our disgusting selves]
on a large scale
or small scale.” (p. 209)

I’m reminded of listening to the Trump Impeachment Debate,
hearing contempt for democratic dialogue,
for loyalty to trust,
transparency,
vulnerability to unmediated light,
healthy curiosity,
courage to choose compassion,
for self and other,
for ego and eco,
rather than contempt.

Not that congressional debates
are suddenly plagued by partisan win/lose rhetorical strategies.

As a communication
and a psychology major,
I learned ancient techniques for persuasion,
for attitude change.
But, an underlying safe
non-partisan environment
of mutual trust,
of loyalty to a healthy Earth,
precludes giving way to the contagious temptations of contempt
against any OtherParty,
disgust about endemic economic and political corruption
of my own run-away win/lose internalized Party.

But, I have two points
seen more clearly through Dr. Peyton’s “Resonance”:

One,
we are capable of national disconnecting shared-identity contempt
against threatening Other
because we were born win/win capable,
from warm attachment healthy birth
of cooperative compassionate development
toward healthy adult/adult resilient relationships,
rooted in our shared destiny
as bicameral EarthDwellers,
EarthTribe,
Mother EarthWomb Integralists.

Second,
contempt grows nationalistic partisanship
because localized compassion can also go viral,
global,
universal
contagious wealth of health-empowerment values
making resonant living systems possible,
re-creative potentiating

As darkness
can be noticed as dark
only by those capable
of remembering light,
power womb enlightenment,
empowerment,
passion,
compassion,
advent,
Christmas Birth,
Lent,
Easter EgoDeath,
Republic elitism,
Democrat non-elitism,
rhetorical contempt,
non-violent narrative,
red rightwing rage,
green leftwing synergy

Wishing all ego-parties
and ecosystems
healthy wealth of EarthPassionate ChristMass
political body-minds
economically double-bound nature-spirits
secular-sacred cooperative co-investors
both out and in
within Earth CoPassion.

Stories Are Not Songs

But songs are a musical story.

I know a difference
between telling a story
and voicing these same lyrics
of anxiety and ease,
of bearing and healing injustices,
medicine for well-earned peace.

I feel a difference
between progressive story telling,
between historically accurate autobiography,
and singing cultural passion narratives,
felt experiences,
perennial sensory moments
of nutrition and starvation,
light and dark,
health and pathology,
resilience and fragility,
privilege and responsibility,
resonance and ongoing anxiety,
harmony and yet mystery,
acceptance and hidden avoidance,
integrity, yet irritating dissonant echoes
either empowering verbs
or neither un-nouned knowns
win/lose explicating with shy win/win implications

Why grateful Yes!
suggests, more hesitantly Not Not Yet?

Being, yet still becoming
Left with indigenously
endemically
regeneratively curious Right
earned ease.

I know a difference
does not mean I can make sense of it.
