Mixing Politics and Religion

My grandfather
seemed wise with years
walking his rural spiritual path
in a relentlessly white
Christian dualistic church
dividing sinful nature
from sacred spirit.

He counseled:
Do not mix
religion and politics.

I wonder
how he would feel
about this mix
of sacred and profane
if he were to meet
my out lesbian activist
senior UU minister.

Clearly
we have mixed up
our religious community
within our local political culture

When we called
this clergy person
we did not ask her
to leave her politics
at any sacred
and ordained door.

On the contrary
we recognize
and celebrate
that she
and we
are politically empowered
and disempowered identities
with naturally spiritual experiences,
family traditions
and theological agendas.

I wonder
if my grandfather would realize:
If calling an out
feminist lesbian
as our minister
mixes religion
and politics,
against his well-meant advice

So too:
Calling a straight
white male
as his first
and second
and third
and fourth
and fifth
and sixth…
pastor
was also mixing politics
and religion
and sexuality

Also against his own patriarchal
not feminist,
monotheistic
not polytheistic,
monoculturing
not polyculturally resilient
healthy advice

Especially for a family farmer
valuing crop
and income diversity
who started out
as an adolescent
relying on organic horsepower,
spirited stallions
and mares
capable of peak experiences
and making ponies
and fertilizing fields
with sacred regenerative practices
for exercising political agency

Giving birth
to future
naturally religious
politically empowered
and disempowered
gender role identified bodies

Yang strong
and Yintegral flowing
wu-wei admixtures of secular politics
and sacred enculturing religious
integrity

Monotheistic
and polytheistic
and panentheistic
and atheistic experiences
cooperatively inclusive

Resiliently polycultural
political and sexual
dynamic communicators
within enlightened tribes
and across empowering species.

Wounded World

I’ve seen Earth’s epitaph:
S/He did more than Her share
to heal a broken world

Which sometimes seems to invoke anger
because I can touch what’s broken
and other times provoke merely sad
because I can only feel inside
who is also wounded

Earth’s living magic,
watered fertile soil,
red-blooded organic
green clean soul
is not broken
like a worn-out clock
or formerly animated toy
or obsolescent urban block
now gone inevitably bad.

EarthTribe is not so much broken
as win/lose perpetually wounded
Paradise Lost
for our lapse
of good-humored Golden Rules
win/win re-found
happy healthy bodhisattva
rebound.

What is already broken
requires outside messianic agency,
too objectively disabled
to stimulate subjective healing salvation,
personally feeling better

Emergent internally vital
growing positively viral,
stealing from toxic claustrophobic disarray,
tomorrow’s voices redeemed
by choices erupting therapeutic promise
today.

Organic wounds,
unlike mechanical brokenness,
give internal notice
warnings of disenabling trauma
also enable therapeutic opportunity
to pull and push risk,
to massage and stretch ambiguous feelings
touching each Other’s sinews
and straps,
moral lapse,
dancing mental songs
and embodied raps

Filling in our anti-social lapse
our monoculturing elapse
of warm
and wet
and wild compassion,
integrity’s redemptive fashion.

Brokenness shrouds despair
alone
where wounds invite
our active healthy care
together happiness vocationed
for EarthTribe’s ecstatic day
by faithful contenting way
inclusively inviting
inspirational repair
with those who dare
to share Earth’s communal difference
to heal this wounded world.

Seasoned Health Reasons

We could widely perceive reasons
for healthy win/win spiritual relationships
and deeply feel seasons
developing wealthy cooperative natural sacraments
growing nutritional food
and natural fuel
and nurturing fertility

Becoming therapeutic fruit
of nonviolent communion
when ego traumatized nature
let’s co-passionately go

Of ancient AnthroSupremacist
monotheistic Capitalist
win/lose degenerative
zero-sum games

Condemning all sacred life networks
to ecocidal lose/lose death

Of Golden Ruling Gaia,
blue/green revolutionary
birthing deep round wombed empowerment
fertilized by richly robust
solar-seasoned
polyculturally polypathic
panentheistic health wealth experience

Deep inside peaking
and wide outside valleyed
ego/ecofeminist depolarizing
spiritual-reasoned/natural-seasoned
health-wealthy economic enlightenment,
ecologically nutritional
empowering
co-invested

So MeWe can widely perceive reasons
for healthy win/win relationships
and deeply feel seasons
of wealthy cooperative sacraments
growing polycultural food
and polypathic fuel
and polyvagal fertility
and polyphonic fantasy.

ReBuilding Paradise Lost

Paradise
like Rome
is not built
and not rebuilt
and rebuilt
and redeveloped
and healed
and redeemed
in one 24-hour
cycle
and recycle
and revolving
round day v night,

And/or
appreciatively regarding both day
and dualdark
rich and fertile
souled and soiled
night.

So too
my personal
and political
and economic
and ecological
and theologically reformed
unconditional win/win regard,
like God’s
and not EarthMother’s
and not Buddha’s
and maybe not Allah’s
and not Atman’s
and not Gaia’s
and not Diana’s
and not Blue Heron’s
and not Dragonfly’s,
has become Christian Reformed Evangelistic
LeftBrain dominantly complicated
to resiliently hang onto cooperatively coinvested peace
for more than a day,
or even an hour

Instead
we are distracted
dismayed
by chronic win/lose stress,
By early childhood trauma experiences
of community original win/lose sin

Capitalized by zero-sum competitive
closed cause/effect linear
either/or bipolarizing fundamentalism,
either unconditionally regarded
as saved,

Or discontinuously disregarded
as damned:
too sacredly holistic,
too round paradoxical circling,
too wide open-systemic
intuitive ecofeminist
panentheistic goddess worship
womanly unmanly mysticism
wicked womb witchery
emasculation
slutty butchery.

Original sin
remains monotheistically addicted
to fear and anger
about panentheistically sensuous
Eve
and big black seductive Serpents
offering MotherEartha’s Apple Pie.

Various Mosaic Law reformers
of Patriarchal-Capitalism
LeftBrain dominant commercial imbalance,
including Jesus of Nazareth,
have suffered and died
to powerfully
panentheistically
indigenously
return to wisely rooted
win/win bipartisan co-passion
and active co-investment

Deep rooted in dualdark soul
and soil of love’s co-present
peakish causes
and valleyed effective
affective
and reflective experience

Reforming my win/lose original zero-sum
competitive
predative
judgmental
self-righteous
greedy assumptions
about humanity’s essential step
away from win/win Paradise,
our mortal Achilles’ heel
of ego-self v. eco-other,
rather than ego+eco sacred EarthMother,
primal potential
for lose/lose disintegration
and for win/win regeneration,
and all not-quite-so-original
win/lose in-betweens,

Round Win/Win
Win/Lose
Lose/Lose octaves
of whole
open sensory
globally universal
organic paradising neuro-systems
nested and networked
working cooperatively co-invested
co-passionately
co-relationally
co-intelligently
co-therapeutically together
better than monotheistically divided
judged,
poles apart.

A win/win Holy
Open Whole EarthSystem,
non-zero sum cooperatively co-invested
Original Paradise Theory
of polycultural communion
feels like it could multiculturally attract
inter-religious
and meta-paradigmatic health and safety advocates
scientists
artists
musicians
muses
comedians

Integrating our capital,
our gut,
and our sacred grown round root,
and full core intelligent curiosity
pregnant with polypathic paradigms,
both secular and sacred narratives,
myths about integral Paradise potential,
transcendent Heavens
of original win/win systemic
sensory
sensual
sexual Paradise potential
for regenerative
unconditional healthy regard,
resilience
through robust wealth
of cooperative resonance.

Yet,
somehow,
despite all our narratives
that healthy Paradise of Love
overpowers unhealthy demons of hate,
God’s monotheistic
anthrosupremacist
not at all unconditional
win/lose judgmental disregard,
like my own,
remains patriarchally
and capitalistically addicted
to long term degenerative trends

Like suicidal ideation,
Traumatic Stress DisOrder,
corporate and corporal greed,
loneliness,
repression,
ecofeminist suppression,
nationalistic straight white exceptionalism,
monoculturally self-righteous genocide
and, now, sacred EarthMatricide

Blind
and deaf
to natural
spiritual feelings
longing for Earth Matrimonial Paradise

Needing resilient health and safety
panentheistic global systems of care,
unconditional regard
wanting universal salvific health
through unitarian yintegral wealth
of cooperatively co-invested
PolyCultural-Communion

NonViolently communicating
win/win panentheistic
Here/Now
Space/Time
Body/Mind
Nature/Spirit Paradise
fomenting virulent indigenous wisdom
restoring unconditionally resilient regard

Which,
like Rome
and like Peace,
is not built
and rebuilt
in one 24-hour day.

Riding Sixties Shotgun

I was in the shotgun seat
in 1960 Lansing Michigan
headed straight as a harddrive
through ghettoizing “Negra Section”
hunting down our commercial whitebread
heavenly ThriftMart,

Wanna be a WalMart
but not Southern enough,
somehow,
to withstand straight-male competition
in fluent White Privileged culture
favoring evangelical
monotheistic
monoculturing AnthroSupremacists

Kinda like
patriarchal-capitalist
anal-retentive pathological trauma
homophobic nature v panentheistic erotic spirit
kinda unenlightened Left unhealthy
and disempowered Right unsafe colonizing wealth
win/lose hoarding
apartheid community trauma dissociative
chronic supremacist anxiety disorders
degenerating unhealthy inside whites only classrooms
contrasting this all black and brown summer outside classroom
feeling shared healthier and safer hearts.

School would soon reopen.
We were on our way to buy
back to school
shirts and jeans,
and whitey tighties
and Elvis Presley-worthy
and 3rd grade new classmate
Arturo Hernandez
disturbing white T-shirts.

A warm August mid-western
urban day
for us white family farmers
traveling East
when a dark-skinned gorgeous boy
my same eight years of age
riding his bike
right out along a cracked
and broken
tree-lined sidewalk
with other kids around
playing hot hopscotch
near a sun-baked naked curb.

He looked over.

With my window down
I felt
and smelled
his shared fragrance
for a moment brown eye to blue
so improbably in love with
you
are who I was made for.

Maybe we could become
boyfriends
and then old-school married
naked together, sometime
someday
somewhere
by accident
discovering we both explore pleasure
favored with him brown-eyed beautiful above
and me under
blue-eyed wide ginger
passionate red-curly-headed
MeWe luscious
wrapped around his waist,
both wanting to give
and to conceive

As I can mostly missionary
dimly historically remember
sounds,
dim sight,
and fertile smell
when her egg
was open-whole systemically
fertilized by spraying Yangstrong
sperm informing
incoming
integral potentiating
seed
and feed
and breed
and bleed
and need
and divine peaking deed

He drove racing athletically
just to tie
our metallic bronze-skinned Ford
sedate, seats six, sedan
on his battered red bicycle
3-speed

His only helmet a handsome head
full fuzzy, yet glossy,
glistening in noon-day summer’s seismic sun,
crow-black
tight-curled
gracious gotta-touch it
play with
feel him

His warm wet scalp massaged,
his salty lips tasted,
his breath and nether sacred
dualdark parts
breathed in
absorbed
until my breath nearly stopped

Then he fell behind,
and was gone
until I met you

And there he was
this eight year old glamorous
brown-skinned boy
now grown
into his handsome thirties

Wanting me
to love him,
and only him,
to worship if I want,
as will he
in sacred
1/0 double-Taurus
1960’s HolySpirit co-passion
for playing only win/win peak hotness
co-governing robustly resonant
co-relations

Reparations
if you will
then so will I
GoldenRule give with you
what all StraightWhiteMale
patriarchal monotheists
would most fear
slatternly given away
in lust for men of color
in that unimageable
thighs spread needy open
way

LeftBrain dominantly win/lose
either/or zero-sum competitors
Left v Right polynomials
reweaving Left-with-Right bicamerals
polyculturing communion, not monoculturing competition,
creolizing, not colonizing,
cooperating, not hunting down
for a profitable military-industrial
LeftBrain dominant
ecopolitical kill

Not yet nightmarish anxious climate imagined
when I was eight years old
in our Ford’s shotgun seat
back in 1960 Lansing Michigan
headed unstraight white
male as a harddrive
through ghettoizing “Negra Section”
distracted by our up and outing
cold cash is sacred manna
ThriftMart.

AnthroScenic Genes

My matriarchal genetic line
of narrative
not quite sublime
resonantly erupts
regeneratively abrupt

Loves repeating
robustly carnal wisdom’s long
drawn out song

Continuously unabated
with unconditional
transgenerational regard
is something emerging more
than simply not not hated

Unlike our discontinuous patriarchal lines
drawn win/lose competitively
dominating lies
across sandy soils, now quaking
under shaking stubborn feet
awaking.

Where Mom will wake
each morn to greet
this life feels glad
to peacefully repeat

While Dad will scowl,
invoke defeat
his love was lost
in-dus-trials
of empty sad
repeat

Monotonously monotheistic
monopolizing maniacal statistics
monoculturally atheistic
monochromatically dominating
anthro-supremely
down with EarthRights

Left Getting Right Off

“The left hemisphere’s assault on our embodied nature
is not just an assault on OUR bodies,
but on the embodied nature of the
[sacred EarthMother]
world around us.”
Iain McGilchrist, The Master and his Emissary, p. 440

The WhiteMale monotheistic privileged hemisphere’s attack
on regenerative co-passion
was already our unwell

by time’s orgasmic peak ReGeneration.

Spirited Therapeutic Systems

It might become too ironically
and iconically embareassing
to admit
I am taking a (s)hit
while exploring
my latest
and perhaps final
nutritional surmise
compressing peak climax
surprise

A well-capitalized
Systematic Theology
of EcoLogical Systems
is not such
an inviting much
of a moving title

Yet herein
we might energetically
not also massively invite “should”
raise up Yang’s enlightening strengths
without also evacuating Yin’s paradoxical
outgoing flow
of nutritional exchange
from what was brown
and healthy egocentric ownership
going down
into integral potential
for ecosystemic stewardship
as dull
as giving a crap
might not resound

Yang
could become LeftHemisphere’s name
too often verbally expressed
overly impressed with ecologically
abstractly decontextualized
secularized lack of curiosity
about patriarchally
well-capitalized
anal Trumpistic retention

AND
Yintegrity’s dipolar co-gravitating
unconditional regard
for self-therapeutic indigenous wisdom
often nonverbally nonviolently felt
too often ecowomanist suppressed
Yang obstructive repressed
economically and politically oppressed
polytheistic sacred sacramental
excremental integrity
of health care giving
wealth share receiving
nutritionally nurturing
fertile regenerative
co-assets.

Yang dominant
conditional curiosity
about what is safe
and also healthy
to cooperatively
and transparently
black
v brown
v suspiciously blond disregard
too often seeks inside enlightenment
from outside above

While Yin’s anally repressed integrity
wants to soil
and soul empower
by releasing egocentric resources from within
not perpetuating anthrosupremacist
agonizing constipation
pushing down against
royal ceramic throne imbalance

In a frightening gut-wrenching worldview
wherein positive does not quite logically
or ecologically
or analogically
or psychologically
or gastro-intestinally
or polyvagally neuro-systemically
equal not negative

Like 1 outgoing nutritional pole
and 0 outflowing nurturing hole
feel like Yang
unconditionally positive regarding
not not paradoxical Yintegral potential
self-health care
reproducing Earth soil’s
repurposing wealth-share potential
nonzero soul.

Yang integrity
hears
and bears down
with deep-seated dualdark brown
systemic enlightenment
biologically whole
holy open for fertile
Yintegrity.

I painfully need now
and want here
to communally co-hear
coherent co-empowerment
through eco-theological
Yang secular bodies don’t stink
where sacred Yintegral minds don’t blink

Against o-empathic
co-invested
co-binary
polypathic
co-passionate
