Domestic Voices

Virile green voices grow longer
louder
lasciviously livid,

Commanding her domesticating mind
to cut them off,
trim them down to size,
to prune and shape
manipulate

Show them and her who’s in charge
cooperating together
at just right
and fresh trimmed length
of light.

Inside Sunday sanctuary voices
hum over and around organic prelude pipes
Hoping she will ring our sacred sounds,
domesticating diverse delightful choices

Inviting her restless mind
to cut them in,
grow them up to fit size
to enchant ecstatic re-creations.

Dr. Ford and Judge Hide

Why do we feel increasingly difficult conflicts
against creating positive strong-rooted energy?

And depressingly BusinessAsUsual
penetrated by negative runaway toxic chaos?

Yesterday,
on my way to a deep rooted tree and shrub nursery
half-way across Connecticut’s Route 1 pilgrim shoreline
my youngest NativeAmerican RightBrain son,
on the other side of our front seat view,
born without anything like a LeftBrain
uncivil spoken capacity for WinLose dominant review,
or even double-binding mutually recessive disassociation,

And I,
LeftBrain prattling on and on,
Ego focused,

Were listening to the Dr. Ford/Judge Kavanaugh,
wounded Dr. Jeckyll
and Judge Hide the Drunken Hormones,
Great Inquisition.

Guaranteed to produce LoseLose results
primarily for them
but also for their families
and what remains of a creative democratically-energized dream.

I was reminded of a quote from Sharon Blackie’s
“The Enchanted Life:”

You can learn to belong anywhere…
if you choose.
It’s an act of creation,
and like all acts of creation,
it’s also an act of love,
and an enormous leap of faith.

Dr. Ford’s choices were lauded
as not so much creative,
but civic minded,
courageous,
even heroic.
But all these belong under a good faith-rooted umbrella,
for those who choose to find them.

But, as I listened to Judge Kavanaugh
and twittering Mr. Trump
choosing not to belong
but to rule over
anywhere they choose,
this bad faith lack of free choice
felt more like an act of excruciatingly violent penetration,
psychological colonization.

And, like all acts of aggression,
choices to self-hate again later,
deny yesterday’s failures and woundedness,
fracturing today’s acts of fear and anger
cowardice
and uncivil
unsettling absence
of systemically rooted mindfulness.

And a huge leap for them
and their extended historic families
and, to a more dispersed absorption rate
of disempowering arhythmic rheumatic hate,
into further vapidly empty
shocking
terrorizing pain
penetrating bad faith
in this episodic failure of cooperative democracy
to restore peace
more than choose self-punishing injustice
and bad-faith fed and watered
by a culture gamely growing away from WinWin health
and toward toxic penetrating LoseLose
anti-ecological
genocidal un-egological
pathologies.

Why is it so difficult,
for civil-minded Dr. Fords,
to create and thrive positive balancing energy?

And how depressively Business As WinLose UnUsually UnCivil
for Judge Hide,
however Kavanaugh or Trump
or any YangSupremacist
uncivilly misjudging
one and LeftBrain Dominant All,
to pierce with chaotic
runaway
toxic
LoseLose annihilating
raping misconduct
of patriarchal uber-chaotic energy.

My youngest son,
riding next to me
on this gorgeous partly-cloudy
NewEngland early autumn day,
had no creatively rooted way
to say
how he was feeling
RightBrain belonging
to and with each spoken song of choice,
some courageously civil
and vulnerable
and transparent
and some penetratingly harsh
intolerant of their own chaotic weaknesses,
afraid of losing entitled Yang LeftBrain powers
to dominate RightBrain’s cooperative restorations
of today’s shallow-rooted rocky landscapes.

Intelligence v Wisdom

While academics often find
what we are looking for,
a positive correlation between intelligence
and wisdom,
Special occasional confusion
about revolutionary absence of Left with Right correlation
frightens me

Even, and unevenly,
while I am manifesting my best for love
and trust
in humanity’s destiny–
Disciplined trials
experiments
proactive investigations
or chaotically dissonant OtherUnwise.

While deductive rational intelligence
develops interdependent quantities
and qualities
And apparently independent bits
of detached paradigmatic information,

Wisdom adds a co-arising ladder
of internal health knowledge
seeking external wealth intelligence
promoting conscious vocational formation
and reformation
and transformation
and unformation
and preformation,

Healthy ego analogy as wealthy ecohabitat political power,
economic energy ecology,
dynamic grace theology,
blending (creolizing, transubstantiating)
Nature with polyphonic singing ringing vibrant internal Spirit,
Humane with Divine golden rules and ratios and elixirs,
Secular with harmonic Sacred,
Health with Wealth of polypathic wisdom

Bilaterally co-gravitating information
internally absorbing
co-arising external exflowing co-present consciousness
Bicamerally valuing past loves and hates
predicating future healthy wisdom passions
more than pathological
nihilistic
foolish LeftBrain over-expansions
of Yang with Yin co-manifest multicultural destiny.

Can’t Make You Stalk Me

Turn up the lights
Fold up the bed
Turn up those voices
outside my head
Lay out for me
Feed me with lies
Just hold me up, your patron saint
Do matronize me

‘Cause I can’t make you stalk me
if you won’t
You can’t make your mind think something
it don’t
Here in my light,
in these early hours
I will pick up my heart
and not feel your power
But I can’t, no I won’t
‘Cause I can’t make you stalk me,
when you don’t.

I’ll freeze my eyes,
then you won’t see
The heart you don’t feel
when you’re not holding me
Evening will come
and you’ll do what’s wrong
Just give me till then
to give up this song
And you could give up our wrong

‘Cause I can’t make you love us
if you won’t
You can’t make your mind feel something
it don’t
Here in our light,
in these late hours
I will pick up my heart
and I’ll feel our power
But I can’t, no I can’t
‘Cause I can’t make you stalk peace,
when you don’t.

 

With apologies to Allen Shamblin and Michael Reid who cooperatively wrote one of my favorite songs.

Listeners With Power

Messengers
are seldom the most powerful voices
in Earth’s wombed room.

Listeners,
whether intrapersonal individuals
or interpersonal incorporated persons
and both,
listening to the most diverse voices
usually become cooperatively empowered
advocates for Earth’s open rooms
birthing eco/theo-logical Grace
from within God’s re-creating history
as above Gaia’s Paradise
cooperatively heard muses,
colors of vibrant heart music.

Ego sung and Eco-danced
with messengers
solar
and lunar
and in-between
co-arising transubstantiations
gathering revolutionary therapeutic powers
for health of multiculturing happiness

Buzzing messengers,
joy-filled sin-clear angels,
silent but lively superpowers
becoming cooperatively re-invested
in polypathic listening,
then polyphonic speaking,
then polycultural re-listening again
then polynomially re-iterating yet again
then multiculturally listening
to eco-messengers
actively healing ego-listeners
cooperating yet again.

EarthMother Green Revolution

Feeling entitled to self-pardoning Grace
Elitist tendencies
within democracy
competitively arise
as cooperative trusting gratitude
fades away
from anti-colonizing
revolutionary post-traumatic space.

Patriarchal problems
seek matriarchal resolutions.

Republic governance structures,
raising up legislative and executive representatives
to judiciously restore healing
where social and economic and environmental wounds
become public cooperative power
to redeem pathologies
by inviting transparently trusted remediations.

Republics must justify control
of too liberally inclusive love,
and have anthro-supremacist issues
deteriorating into bipolar anger
and polycultural fear
of rabidly overpopulated xenophobia
slowly hatching boundary enhancement schemes,
nationalistic entitlement competitions
replacing humane polypathic hope and faith
in international ecological cooperations
for multicultural health-wealth
2020 revolutions
furthering downstream PositivEnergy Democracy.

We are not wrong
to democratically hope
European Union trust
is a more resilient political ecology
and resonant social theology
than pre-millennial wars
and internecine creedal crusades
and building moats
around castle embattled walls
for hoarding up nutritional treasures
against predative invaders
and polyculturing ideas.

Social and
personal and
economic and
ecological and
theological political integrity
invite democratic gratitude
for republic non-violent bilateral communicating leaders,
green legislators speaking and listening,
and deep learning judicious ecotherapeutic executives
facilitating balance between
LeftBrain deductive unity
and RightBrain sacred inductive diversity,

Secular with Sacred Integrity,
in-between universal ego-health resilience
and unitarian eco-wealthy resonance,

Yang breathing in
Yin bleeding gratitude
ego/eco-redemptively out.
