Historical Winners

I’ve now read evolutionary
and feminist historians
and economists
and political scientists
agreeing, in a side by side custody
of the over-specialized eyes
and ears
non-dialogical way

Not competing against each other,
except maybe for journal space,
nor actively cooperating with each other,
beyond normal ethical Golden Rule academic standards,
occasionally co-opting hybrid terms
from each other,
word choices, if you happen to be a historical communication
paradigmatic systems analyst,
like Thomas Kuhn,
sniffing out multiculturing re-appropriations
moving toward renewing articulation
of non-colonization
non-violent revolutions,
co-passionate creolizations,
polypathic transformations
into grand new reincarnations

Agreeing that Earth’s historical evolution
involves both competitive survivalist economies
and cooperative thrival developments
growing ecological resilience objectives,

Meanwhile Game Theorists
recognize both survivalist win/lose power games
and thrivalist win/win positive communication
enlightened games.
mutually transparent
cooperatively vulnerable
culturally integral.

But, my own limited experience
challenges evolutionary assumptions
that win/lose competitions
are more cost-effective,
stronger strategic responses
to pandemic and climate public health crises

That runaway military-industrialized
monoculturing capitalism
is more likely to achieve successful economic health goals
than can win/win multi-party
inclusive healthy democratic cooperation

When local community
and corporate
and national commodified values
are in a frenzied state of feed and breed
before starved and bled
with competing rabidity
an ecologically prudent economist
might predict rabid exhaustion
and collapse of healthy co-invested economies
and wealthy ecological relationships
much more often than future’s more resiliently planned
cooperative co-invested Paradise.

And cross-pollination works both ways
when democratic multiculturing economic paradise
and global ecological
co-relational peace
feel most ecopolitically climatic
then co-passionate Left and Right Wings sing
of predative lions
and preyed out lambs
coalesce in ecosystemic cooperative fields
of co-invested manure together

Playful win/lose competitions
between cooperatively win/win trained
and empowered
and enlightened team-players
become our best socio-economic evolving structures
for learning cooperative holistic metasystems
with democratically competitive political
integral thriving economies
supporting locally owned producer/consumer cooperatives
and global win/lose competitions
in optimizing healthy empowering experiences

Hoping to be the first local economic delivery
of these last minute 20/20 revisionary gifts
for how we,
historically together,
become ultra-nonviolent
ecofeminist evolutionaries
retelling ancient narratives
concerning our thriving economic-ecological
political investments
in fairest fairness
to MotherEarth’s All

Cooperatively living
most health wealthiest
ever after.


Dear Nationalist RePublicans

I’m worried
you have over valued
your favorite deceptively entertaining commodity,

DisInformation’s strategic value
and disvalue
and misvalue
depreciation revaluated
against long-term resonant
and resilient democratic constitutional
win/win eco-political wealth
of USA patriotic empowerment

Not accurately
or acutely
or ecologically
or therapeutically co-related
with polycultural WholeEarth Wisdom

BiCameral Out-InFlowNation
poli-conservational healthy wealth
informed short- through long-term
global empowering ecopolitics
of transparent vulnerability;
integrity’s enlightening TransInFormation.

It seems
you can call out
in a crowded political field
and Big Bad Wolf!
on a darkened shifty night
before you too soon become
the fired
not so big
yet very bad
underwhelming wolf.

The distinction between treachery
and treason
against an inclusive well-being constitution
rooted in collaborative trust
and co-investment in truth
lies in the generous
or parsimonious eye
of the democratic beholder.

You have melted much
of thin immunizing ice
over the lavishly capitalized swamp
for disinforming humane reputations
you call ticklish
pricklish home.

Is six and seven figure skating
over such swampish disinforming ice
really worth the economic
and political risk
to healthy green conservation,

To cooperatively democratic
power sharing
in-forming home
on patriotic MatrioticEarth?


An Attractive Thought Experiment

In this thought experiment
Adults, at least,
have developed three types of attraction
and attractiveness,
positive and negative
and in-between energy:

Heart attraction,
romantically associated
with touch and feeling,

Mind attraction,
more cognitively associated
with sight and sound
and, perhaps, LeftBrain dissonance
and more competitive
predative instincts,

And root sexual attraction,
primordially associated with taste
and smell,
and letting go
neurologically informed
and exforming passions,
communion and disunion patterns,
non-violent/predative communication structures,
win/win resilient
and lose/lose dissonant,
LeftThought and RightFelt pleasure/unease/disease

Ecological and Theological,
natural and spiritual
secular and sacred
physical and metaphysical.


Healthy Democracy

Democratically effective governance
of people
and planets
cannot begin with degenerative violence
without ending as militant predation,

Which does not sound like healthy
and cooperative co-invested democracy
even to a child
familiar with playground bullies.

Rather than roots in “retributive justice”
religiously licit order,
healthy democracy stems from restorative win/win peace,
multicultural nature spirits
and bio-systemic sacred wisdom,

At least interdependent wisdom enough
to avoid militaristic patriarchal predation
and pollution
of all that Earth holds sacred.


Gadflies and HoneyBees

Where to begin
in the middle of cold and dark
winter’s solstice,
healthy green life’s time
of impeachment,

Where does this all rightfully
and left sacredly end?

These are expansive gadfly questions,
issues of complexly dipolar reason,
leftbrain dominant
either-or thinking
we are either thinking or feeling
rather than conscious of both,
and neither sufficient
without the necessary other.

and passion
win competitive evolutions
only to lose cooperative revolutionary
dipolar and co-arising,
bipolar and co-exhaling.

We dissociate cognitive reason
from rightbrain’s more original intuitive-sourced feelings.

like balanced Taoists,
advocate our 7th Principle
about interdependent
co-passioning webs
of non-violent life communing love,
cooperative empowerment,
bicameral egopatriarchal/ecofeminist
NonZero-Sum Win/Win contextual
counter-capitalism multicultural,
WinLeft’s liberal egolove
to WinRight’s healthiest conservational ecolife.

So, let’s not continue
beginning with a full-spectral blue
and red
and ultra-violet synergy,
but confine our response
to questions not yet leftbrain asked

And notice, instead, dark and light green,
in-between sunny courage yellow
and curious and long-hidden orange,

Merging and emerging
what comes after RightWing Red depressions
of Earth’s healthiest well-being values.

If Earth’s children are, sometimes
not particularly egocentric,
not especially competitive,
more artistic and wounded, perhaps,

And not necessarily human,
maybe a chick,
or a colt,
a cub,
a matriarchal egg, etc.

you are a Wise EcoFeminist Elder,
an organic gardener
looking out for your healthy flock,
your child with disabilities,
your own chronic climate anxiety of win/lose stress,
expecting Aspergerish cooperative co-arising warm compassion
in-between memories of win/lose competitions
and images of future win/win cooperative democratic empowerment
through co-invested polypathic communication,
polynomial relationship,
polyphonic compassion.

You probably would think/feel yourself merely reponsible
for protecting your co-empathic young
from white predative nationalist hate,
from self-unfulfilling prophets of egalitarian apartheid
without hope of interdependent healthy regenerativity,

You would probably want to be reassured that:

1. Your young adult understands what s/he will be hearing
is driven by leftbrain competitive
emotionally dissociated
deductive/reductive dominating
monocultural identity,
at best, no more elitist right
than non-elitist wrong.

2. The right to free and responsible speech
(U-U Principle Four)
has a reverse corollary,
usually unconsciously assumed

S/he has the freedom not to listen
to unfree
potentially toxic
one-sided presentations
and leftbrain lopsided verbal debates
with straw ecofeminist
cooperative social investors,
indigenous citizens of sacred MotherEarth
before denizens of any nation-identified State,
or supremacist Tribe.

3. I would not think/feel
I am “coddling” my adolescent dependents,
whether human in formation
or a yearling pony,
by inviting them to anticipate discussion
with win/win non-violent intent,

That we are good
and natural
and healthy
and democratic
to assume restorative green resilience
of all ecosystems
and all subclimates,
whether internal or external,
whether yin or yang,
whether unitarian or universal,
whether ecofeminist or egopatriarchal,
whether sacred Left interdependent ecosystemic
or secular Right egocentric capitalists,

Dialogue is always a healthier choice
for a wise green energy democracy
then violent
overly competitive debates,
with zero-sum win/lose relational/nutritional assumptions

As if win/lose capitalism makes democratic nurturing sense
despite win/win empowering green
original sacred-mind and secular-body
bilateral revolutionary intent,

Where rational regenerative history
greets intuitive resonant mystery
with deep green learning respect.

4. And we are not really ‘coddling’
to rationally expect non-violent discussion
begins with compassionate win/win listening
for points of cooperative agreement,

Usually more significant
than win/lose points of runaway disagreement,
regardless of cultural color appreciation
or species gratitude,
or the healthier humor of leftbrain egopatriarchal dominance
passionate about cooperative rightbrain ecofeminist prominence.

Reason-rooted StraightWhiteMale gadflies
sometimes have trouble hearing
and appreciating the interdependent power
of 7th interdependent identity principles
in balance with
1st co-relational
co-passionate dignity principles

Of egalitarian freedoms to speak
and interdependent responsibilities
to listen for win/lose issues
to discern win/win cooperative resolutions.

Gadflies may tolerate
dissonant monoculturing fascist risks,
rather than resonantly co-responding
with confluent
interdependent opportunities,
which are more of a honey bee
kind of humming green consciousness,
both wealthy mind-thought
and healthy body-felt.


Winged Economy

When I wash dishes
I look out at my bird feeder,
noticing which political species are best at cooperating,
easy democratic process,
remaining focused on collective nutritional energy gains,
“we’re all in this together” feathers of kin kind
And, which are more elitist,
not so good with sharing a modestly seeded pot;
blue jays predatively pecking,
crows taking over with raucous self-appointed authority,
ganging up against non-supremacists
seeking win/win democratic health.
But, this morning’s meditation
looks over at a nearby large bush,
now January cold barren brown
camouflage, more than shelter,
for local birds of all species
waiting their feeding turn,
frightened by my neighbor’s cat
or a hawk flying ominously overhead
or human noises leaking through my windows.
This small bird sanctuary,
Or is it an asylum?…
Perhaps both, depending on the bird,
harbors those waiting,
patiently, impatiently,
How would I know?
for their turn at their nutrition tower,
their seed Commons,
their energy media feeding station,
local source for economic and political exchange,
social busyness.
Each bird flies back and forth,
some dressed in drab everyday,
others more business-ready flashy,
but all conjoining waves of flowing energy
in-between asylum bush
and open season feeding sanctuary.
Sometimes listeners and watchers,
and then short-flight toward feeders,
receiving sacred wafers,
investments in cooperative multiculturing futures,
gifts of a generous green Earth.
they are gone.
The feeder Commons
My meditative hiding
and curiously waiting medicine bush
bereft of waving winged energy
breathing in and out,
feathered wings up and down.
Time to go back home
to more private nests
or, perhaps
to visit my neighbor’s cooperative feeder,
another caffeinated sanctuary
outside his own warm interior asylum.

New Year’s Recycling Journey

Stepping into a new year,
especially one calling for 20/20 revision
not retribution for anger’s past
but restoration of WinLeft/WinRight bicameral sanctuary,

Stepping into a new ZeroZone Asylum,
positive deviance from leftbrain competitions
predicting reductive,
business as usual.

Positive left/right harmonic deviance
invites cooperative resistance
against a shared predative,
hopelessly heterosexual privileged enemy
of all the non-elite people
emerging from leftbrain dominant climates
of EarthTribe colonization,
extraction of life,
enslaving monopolization of body-power,
disembodied neglect,

Shared asylum against negative lose/lose nihilism,
fake elitist monotheistic Rapture,

Against positive win/win passion,
compassionate communication,
ego/eco left/right yang/yin bicameral therapy.

Stepping into this NewYear ZeroZone
can be yet another
in an undistinguished
degenerative lose/lose series,

Lacking 20/20 sensory-neural
revolutionary revision,
restoring peace,
Earth Climate Justice,
inside as outside,
inspiration as exhalation
enlightening as empowering
not-not yin as positive intersectional yang
exponential 0 as multiculturing 1
incoming wealth herstory as outgoing polyculturing health

Ecofeminist 2020
predicting trimtab strategic
global health possibility
of a robust 2121
cooperative wealth-climaxing

May this win/win celebration game
begin not win/lose degenerating all over again,
but, instead, grab hold of regenerative becoming
NewGreen MultiCultural Asylum.


Not My Responsibility

I am responsible
and responsive
to every human built shelter
I have experienced as home,
mine to use,
to buy further improvements or sell,
to renovate or destroy.

I am responsible
and transparently responsive
to every lot of unimproved real estate,
every plot against healthy soil
and supporting water systems
and plants
and living creatures
who once called this place, home,
this space, habitat
to cooperatively use
to regenerate healthy wealth
and to degenerate diseased corruption.

I am accountable
when cooperative responsibilities
become transparent
from now
back toward Earth’s uncivilized
uncompromised civility,

contemplative silence,
celebrating cacophony,

chaotically complex
beautifully true,
magnificently not mine.
