Spangled Star Banners

Oh say, did you notice
a national predative anthem?
Moving immediately
urgently,
without reflection of starlight
sent or received,

From waving flags predicting weapons
fueled by complexly masculine
emasculating
militarized corporate industries
of mutual defensive risks
against international cooperative opportunities
to coinvest

In smoke-filled dawns of manifest destiny
toward freedom for all
self-righteous straight white males
especially with a divine right
as Earth’s owners of enslaved
exploited property,
and home to the brave mercenaries
of death
and dying
and divestment technologies.

This anthem
is based on a patriarchal
powerful
psychological
and spiritual
and natural
and ecological
theological error.

Nowhere in our personal experience
nor our economic or political history
do we fight for freedom.

We do fight against oppression
but we flee,
apart or together, toward freedom.

Emigration is about exodus
toward hope and freedom.

Declaring wars,
expressing
and investing
our collective fears and angers,
These are about lands taken from reserved,
and feminized
and marginalized
and enslaved laborers,
forced immigrants into non-elite oppressions
of nationalism
patriarchalism
elite v non-elite dualism,
divides,
absence of win/win communication,
xenophobia
monoculturing suppressions
repressions

Where polypathic left with right win/win prominence
longs for polycultural confluence
rather than cognitive/affective dissonance,
flag waving
nationalistic predative anthems
sung empty-heartedly
with elitist left-brain opulence.

Love, Love, Love

Love, love, love.
Every needy thing’s about more
and better
love,

Unless you’re at a political rally.
Then we’re all about patriotic, patriotic, patriotic,
Or Freedom, Freedom, Freedom,
Although if we are not free
to feel patriotic or not so much,
then I suppose what is needed
is more Love, Love, Love.

More active compassion,
more listening mindfulness,
more global, if not universal, consciousness,
more robust and resilient relationships
with co-migrant populations,
plants,
planet.

More, more, more
Love, love, love…

Why do we multiculturally long for secular love
and sacred grace
and win/win karma,
yet speak
and endlessly sing
for such long-winded
and short-winged cooperative relationships?

While investing so little time listening
to him
and her
and competitive/cooperative him/her,
as Left makes Right loves Left
full-circle again.

Creator God speaking theological
and creation goddess listening ecological
EarthTribes in love with loving experience

Of and for healthy ego-
wealthy eco-relationships,
wise as also well-being compassions

Listening to, “Love, love, love”
co-investing every communing harmony
playing and working life
through deeper and wider
active listening for timeless love.

To Our NRAss-ociation

To the No Relationship Association,

I suppose we will never find
a healthy way to prove
Lovelock’s Gaian Hypothesis
we have nothing left to lose
by cooperating more Win/Win
and competing less Lose/Lose.

No more or less than we could prove
our sun will reappear
to rise this next tomorrow
any more or less synergetically
than fundamental fragmentationally
apart.

Still, if not true
that love cooperatively empowers
more than hate competitively disempowers,
then how would we understand life becomes
more powerful than non-life’s static being?

If non-life artifacts of becoming
rocks in streams
of living water
shaped of star dust
and gaseous non-relationships
instead of nothing,

How could no thing
emerge from no ballistic space?

And why would no space for belonging
submerge this flow
of universal ergodic time
yang-health forward
restoring yin-wealth
of listening in non-violent
co-passionate DNA communion,
historic past?

Still,
I see your pointed rifle.
I suppose we will never find
a healthy way to wealthy prove
and disprove
unprove
reprove
pre-approve
Lovelock’s Gaian Synergetic Hypothesis
we have no right integrity
left to lose.

RealTalk Parties

What if political parties
all over Earth
were invited together to sign a covenant
at a We The BiCameral People Party;

A covenant to never nominate or endorse or vote for a candidate for public office
without economic
and political
and environmental
and psychological
and socio-cooperative logical training
in non-violent communication skills,
verbal and non-verbal.

This experience,
publicly documented,
multicultural design certified,
quantified,
qualifies facilitators of RealTalk
inclusive and contagious public health
to con-celebrate virtuous GoldenRule circles
and green ecosystemic
climate wealthy public/private lives

RealWalk more robust than Win/Lose necessarily tolerant voices
unheard herded, not invited,
into what RealTalk could become
a more resilient deeper learning
as a Win/Win trusting health democracy.

What if Christian Law and Moral Order Schools
required first year retributive justice Win/Lose classes
as legal baseline Business As Win/Lose Usual,
And second year restorative peace and justice
outdoor green ecogame robust nutrition classes
in moral virtuous circles
Transactional Business As Healthy Win/Win Usual,

And third year liberal-green/conservational-red
left/right
ego/eco-justice
private/public health care resilient
mediation life skill tipping-pointers
toward Win/Win co-inviters,
as favorably contrasted
against Lose/Lose long-term UnDead
UnReal ClimateWalk of death skill commodifiers?

What if health-stretching tolerance
became, again, a re-creative tension
between growing Win/Win eco-resilience
and not so much toxic Win/Lose ego-dissonance?

Instead,
compassionate left/right resonance
liberal/conservational
+1/(-,-)0 polynomial
greenblue, aqua,ultra-violet,
sometimes plainly gorgeous/monocultural imperialist red,
left-wing/right-boot
ego-march/eco-systemic fancy flight
bilaterally conservative
of ego-marching/eco-dancing balance,

Functional RealWalk Yang strength/
Flowing RealUnTalk Yintegrity,
atomic/wave-linear,
precessive/recessive (Bucky Fuller)
patriarchal/matriarchal
fragmented complexity
with an impossible fractal-holonic-rainbow understory
densely learned polypathic.

What if restorative justice,
for GoldenRule WinWin covenant violators,
were RealWalk invitations
to a reverse-potlatch,
unkleptocratic green sanctuary event
for paying Lose/Lose offender taxes
to co-invest in less Win/Lose ZeroSum violence
against Win/Win emergent organic re-membering
resilient GoldenRule cooperatives
established in our original democratic

composed entirely of sacred covenanted co-relationships

To never ever choose Win/Lose candidates
hoping they won’t become another Lose/Lose nominee
for RealTalk RealWalk cooperative public office
or even private healthy-wealthy
intrapersonal left/right
Win/Win
un-sociopathic health practice.

Green Body of Christ

When I was a child
my evangelical family
went to People’s CoOperative Bible Church,
to rapturously pray and praise our privileged preachy partialness,
political and economic and social and environmental,
spiritual against physical apartheid
of superior, divinely-inspired, theology,

Yet, somehow rooted in mission-driven competitions
against the fullness of non-sectarian time
sufficient to bring inclusive nutrients,
liquid and capital-hoarded assets for future rainy
blizzard blustering
dominant days,
at least six per week
severed from Sabbath’s cooperatively wondrous Kingdom
at open-systemic nurturing hand,

Celebrated by declaring our victorious Communion
on God’s glorious not capital-driven work on Sunday
seated in humble chairs of classroom youth,
eventually wooden pews of adult authority
in our small
segregated
AllWhite People’s Sectarian Bible Church.

I recall not even one Sunday School lesson
about what the Holy Historical Body of Christ
might have to do with our potential
Green MultiCulturing Spirit of Healing Christianity,

Nothing about tensions between communion
and monocultural supremacist apartheid,

Nothing about walls between WinWin healthy sacred interdependence
and WinLose stringent secular autonomy of capitalism,

Nothing about Great NonTransitional Divides
between cooperative passions and competitive dispassions,
between Heavenly to-gatherness
and too much Earthly apartness,
between celebration of health
and holocaust of anthro-centric pathology.

Maybe I missed that non-violence teaching Sunday,
But I did not miss experiential theology lessons
of tensions between heterosexual patriarchal monocultural evangelism
and Heaven’s vast radically inclusive promise
of a polycultural
non-apartheid
eternal communioned outcome for Earth-dwellers,
especially for child-like peacemakers,
Holy Spirit inheritors,
regenerators,
co-messiahs within this one secular/sacred Body of Christ.

Active hope for such enchanting holistic bodies
and spirits of vulnerable and transparently loving Messianic Missions,
in the West,
and Bodhisattva PeaceWarriors,
in the East,
felt, even then, as a child,
like emotionally interdependent
enchanting intelligence.

Perhaps,
if we could all arrive in everyday Sabbath Heaven,
in absence of six-day capital over-invested apartheid,
we might discern warmer inviting Lights
are also Truths
and communioned Ways
to sing God’s/Gaia’s EarthBound greening praise

As when we first began
in Planet’s CoOperative Bible Church.

Why Ask Why?

Mommy,
why do we need Presidential Alerts
right now
before I’ve finished my ice-cream dessert?

Because he’s a scary guy
my son.

Why is he so scary?

Because he’s a bully against health
and patriotic loyalty to Earth’s future
multicultural life,
my well-nurtured daughter.

Why is he against health care?

He’s for his own wealth development.

Why is he for his own wealth care?

Because his mother never taught him
health care begins at home
and must have interdependent room
to spread out from there.

Why does health have to spread?

Because otherwise true wealth dies.

Why does wealth die?

Because Earth’s climate quickly turns
toward global degeneration.

Why is Earth going to hell?

Because we made some bad choices.

Who is We?
and why did We make bad choices?

Because We have bad habits
of settling for empty sovereignty
of a failing adult supremacy system.

Why is our system failing?

Because mature adults fail to ask enough questions
of ourselves,
and then with co-arising healthy others.

Celebrating Heroes

I want to respond
to the retired Marine
who watched Democratic Congressional Leaders
during the State of our crippled Union event,
disappointed at how their patriotism,
their loyalty to sacred sacrifices of soldiers
appears too tepid,
jaded,
ungrateful
as compared to more thunderous enthusiastic applause
and standing ovations of Republican Leaders.

I have noticed this too
both during various national bipartisan rhetorical events,
and also within my conscientious objector self,
And I wonder about my own hesitation
to celebrate military heroism,
as if this were an oxymoron,
like military peace intelligence.

For me,
such internal heart-warming applause
is chilled by my own half-empty embarrassment
that I have gone through my recent months and years
perhaps too full of willing tolerance
for moral assumptions too big to fail,
that we are OK to predatively place
other men and women,
regardless of culture or religion or nationality,
and their necessarily neglected children,
in harms toxically unnecessary way.

An heroic investment
far too expensive for developing healthy persons,
plants,
or planet.

This is not how we wisely invest
in sacred Earth’s climates
and healthing cultures.

My celebration of military heroes
remains perennially muted
by my unease about planting future threats
by paying springtime federal taxes
because I conscientiously object,
for spiritual experience
and religious belief reasons,
how large the mountainous percentage
invested in threat of death and dying
and paying ever-mounting interest
on past military industrialized deficit
overheating budgets.

Stolen from potential health
and well-being
of Earth’s future generations
spread throughout all Earth’s sacred residents
now terrified of upcoming ballistic climates.

I should have tried harder,
more conscientiously,
to invest in restoring ballasts of co-operative climates.

So, I intend no disrespect
for courage
and honor
and heroes
for those who have survived
violence and
fear and
anger and
greed and
political pretensions of Elitists
too old to fight themselves,
but just rightwinged enough
to invest in further armaments,
and thereby profit nicely.

I feel no disrespect
for those who have not survived
and will not survive,
much less thrive in pathological death-culture.

But nationalistic applause
and praying for God’s blessings on U.S. First and Last,
Right or Wrong,
feel consciousness unsettling
when I experience God’s applause
for love and peace
and not our hate and
fear and
anger and
violence against each other,
regardless of religion or
culture or
national origin
or gender
or color
or age,
born,
long gone,
or yet unborn.

I know God too omnipotent and omnipresent
to respect inhumane national apartheid boundaries.

Heroes
are those who have gone well past their patriotic duty
far beyond what anyone could honestly
and reasonably ask,
beyond what most of us might expect of ourselves,

Especially while those left behind
remain in free-markets
to profit off the tanks
and submarines
and rifles soldiers bravely carry,
bullets and bombs they aim,
often at the even more profitable investments
of these same 1% Elite,
regardless of International Conglomerate Status.

For those who are persuaded
what was asked
was itself a positive democracy protecting moral act,
standing ovations of buoyant applause
feel resoundly called for
from warmly celebrating hearts.

But, for those of us
who empathize with heroes both alive and dead
regardless of religion or culture or national origin,
who feel such violence reflects our own democracy protecting failures
to conscientiously love all sacred life sufficiently,
Such unmitigated happiness feels heart-wrenchingly wrong.

In face of such selfless investment
in violence and risk to healthy futures
for threatening death
and objectives of destruction,
we more likely bow our disinvested heads,
take a humbled knee,
silent in awe of such uncompelling bad-breathed ambiguity,

Yet not wanting to offend
against such sacred gifts
offered at an unacceptable cost
We never had the conscientious right to ask
another soul to pay.

I do not believe disrespect
is democratically intended
for lack of con-celebrating our violent history’s heroes;
but respectful listening grows more conscientiously compelling
for humility
of political and economic enablers,
co-investors like myself,
with guilt and shame about what others have paid
because we did not act sufficiently
for waging and investing peace,
Incarnating God’s love
for all Earth’s SacredTribes.
