Cooperative Journeys

It interests me,
this journey into the garden
each spring
to notice how diverse vegies
and flowers,
edibles
and ornamentals,
pollinators
and soil enrichers,
work cooperatively together
when they can

My own planning part
notices potential competitions,
for light
water
deeper top soil,
but these pursue
optimizing cooperation
to jointly thrive,
not competition
to barely survive
trauma,
stress,
pain,
loss,
duress.

While sitting in the shade
looking over a host of community gardens
enlivened
and enriched
by cooperative community gardeners,

I recall business
and even public sector classrooms
worshiping at the win/lose altar
of capital investment

Sure,
without responsible question,
that at the end of our lifetime journey
we will be celebrated by our successful oppressions,
suppressions of the vanquishable
repressions of the feminist weak
within ourselves
our gardens
our families
and compassionate friends.

This has not been my experience,
that I am celebrated by,
and for,
those I have divested of
like obstacles to overpower,
mere consumer subjects
to satiate into silence,
to financially abuse,
to emotionally neglect.

Whether contemplating
another spring season
of cooperative community gardens
or harvesting reasons
at the end of a long midsummer dream

In which we are religiously celebrated
for our multicultural passions
and polycultural communion,
participating in EarthTribe’s
cooperatively redemptive journey
back toward green
pristine Eden.

Masked Medical Missionaries

Not sure why
USA red
relentlessly white
and not so much blue WholeEarth patriots
have consistently
selflessly supported
medical missionaries
vaccinating against every unmasked
health threatening disease
erupting in tribal life
of darkest social systemic Africa

Yet fail to co-empathically embrace
basic
fundamental
win/win evangelically redemptive
bipartisan public health care
here in domestic
Straight White
USA Christian
flag-waving homes

Where live and breathe
our own at-risk children

And climate threatened grandchildren

And pandemonic RightWing denihilistic
degenerating public and private health prospects
for great grandchildren

Who might hope to survive
for more than another wealthy
humane-divine century

Sacredly meaningful

transparent
and multiculturally vulnerable
co-empathic

ForeGiving CelEmbracions

We all have had worst days and best days,
good and bad days and nights
works and plays.

My own largest part of learning to forgive myself
for bad days
of WholeEarth neglect
and win/lose interpersonal compromises,
for bad historic days
of letting go too easily,
too conveniently
forgiving my unforgiving
and unforgiven apartisanship,
for sins of Othering heritage,
for anthro-
and ego-centric supremacy

Is to celebrate our connecting
and reconnecting
wealthiest viral health
safe return
to humanity’s multicultural Home

Silently celebrating my ego’s
largest ecosystemic spaciousness,
deepest wisdom,
widest win/win compassion.

As we learn to con-celebrate
EarthTribe
re-exploring our nondualistic
indigenous
natural/spiritual heritage,

We embrace integral
holistic
holy
transparent
and vulnerably compassionate communications

Restoring green peace
through EarthJustice,

Remerging
regenerative
redemptive co-passion
celebrating my
and our
green eco/theo-logically peaceful
GoldenRule humane/divine identities

WellBeing constellations,
healthy bicameral democratic structures,
harmonic choruses,
fire-circle heated dancers,
multiculturing communion celebrants
cooperatively fore-giving our worst days
becoming our con-celebrated best days
and nights,
works and plays.

What We Mean ReConnected

Imagination
and timeless Muse memory
wears Her integral capacity
to naturally craft a re-ligious spirit
out of any transcendent
transparent
transregenerational relationship,

Within any AnthropoCentric
NonViolent Communioning Network.

And, a positively correlating observation,
proposition,
perhaps both decent and indecent,
sacred and secular,
sensory and sexual,

We can,
and have,
and will continue to
design gods and goddesses
out of any significant
deep and widely polycultural communing
EarthTribe Ancestor,
both enlightening
from above
and without,
and empowering
from below
and within;

Monotheistically transcendent,
and/or panentheistically communing,
imminent co-empathic trans-immanence.

Integrity’s Great ReTurning potential
transubstantiating potency,

Omnipotence individualized
in pride
courage
curiosity
commitment
to be freely and fruitfully known
as an Earth Worshipper
of Her omniscient natural Truths
and omnipresent spiritual Beauty.

But, I would be ticked in Hell
if anyone ever thought of,
and felt from, me
an individualistic Nation Patriot,
Patrician,
same ol’ patristic sad song
and delusional dance

A WELLNESS CAPITALIZED EmpireBuilding Worshipper
of colonizing
competitive
Win/Lose ZeroSum monotheistic
monoculturalism,

Greatly divisive
degeneratively intending
to not creolize within sacred Earth communion,
but to take over secularized resources
for ecopolitical consumption
unto transcendently supreme
StraightWhitePatriarchal AnthrObesity.

An ecologically resilient
and theologically resonant
Patriotic SpiritNature,
like EcoFeminist ReLigioning Integrity,
is potentially healthiest
wealthiest
and wisest

When direct prayers for health,
and wealth petitions to MotherEarth
are for nothing less
than our most regenerative
polyculturing
enlightening and empowering
Truth and Beauty
Heaven and Earth
Spirit and Nature
CoPassionate BiCameral Communion.

Casting Earth’s Redemption

I need you to sing
the straight white male lead
in Phantom of Our Opera
as a Catch-22 steed.

I don’t sing with wit
and I won’t dance without it.

But, if that’s a no,
but hard for you to show,
you clearly have our great voice
for such a ghostly part,
you already know the music
you’ve been singing us by heart
throughout rehearsals,
now in your golden years,
so why not take this opportunity
for power’s famous staged reversal?

You offer unstraight
unwhite
unmale risks
of stirring up
and down
and all around
win/lose competition’s envy,
emotional divestment,
baritone emoting enemies
lacking full choral investment.
These outweigh
my Win/Win nondualistic soul’s
song to harmonically say

Earth shows resilient regenerates
when new solo star perforates
penetrates headlines and reviews
footlights ghosting headbrights
reflecting fame’s good news
degenerates longterm capital streaming
patrilinear beaming
neuro-defiant win/lose
must win today streaming
to not lose/lose
post-survival thrival screaming
unstill phantom climax dreaming

Of fractal group
organic Opera Theory
optimally beaming
not dissonantly singing poop
for Earth’s whole straight and not crooked
white and not famously bright
male and ecofeminist ringing
win if I win
and I lose if you lose
singing free of Catch-22’s
phantom divisive sin.

Get somebody else
for your Phantom cast
and multi-degenerative ZeroSummary
historic win/lose evolution recast
to beat into suppress
and shoot to impress
and ghost down repress,
to get even oppress
with RightWing dominant frowns
to shame,
punishing unwealthy judgment
for blame.

How would Earth’s Opera go on
if all those on our cast
felt your win to lose Sums
too risky to famously
win/win blast

Conserving ego-defensive ways
to individually shine
through singing solo days
of wearing ghost-defensive masks
for good health objective tasks

Like performing cooperative win wins
for NonZero Earth’s operatic vaccinations,
box office regenerations,
healthy audiences of resilient nations
cooperatively wealthing
full-octave resonant climate chorus
praising phantom co-pathetic
healthy wealth imaginations.

Then I would be a fool
ghostly worried
about survival risks of being
win/lose buried
beyond all win/win prospects
for multicultural communion

Opportunities for CoOperational respect
synergetically staged
ecopolitics correctly co-engaged
nonzero sung operatic survival
in full-octave win/win
biblical bodhisattva co-thrival.

GreenBacked Scenes

Oh the stories I’ve seen!
of Capital Capitol Green

Of ecocidal mean
homicidal means
mediums
medians
measures

Without theistic meaning
or even humane purpose

Toward tip pointed bleeding
killing
shooting
bombing
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
expanding regenerative Earth’s wealth

Green revolutions
not inhumanely win/lose
zero-sum invested
in our divinely inspired Capital Competition Scene
anti-ecologically unGreen
backed out mean
degenerative crushing devolutions

Chasing RightWing impressions
LeftBrain dominant verbalizations
growing green money machines
instead of honeyed organic
Integrity Love Scenes

Of blue sky peace
green salad justice
restoring win/win symbiotic grease
to Anthro MonoTheistic JustUs
mattering
splattering carbon frying
green dying

Earth’s last commodifying chance
for polycultural life communion,

Con-celebrating blue/green sacred song
sung integrity’s nonviolent dance,
polypathic
polymathic
nonzero soul
story EarthGreened,
healthy Truth staged,
wealthy Beauty screened.

Kindness Is Free

Teachers
and parents
throughout the world
remind us kindness costs nothing.

Compassion is both free
and freeing.

But, those same teachers
and parents
and preachers
may not as directly mention
that meanness risks losing everything
you would care to feel positively healthy,
and not quite so negatively overstuffed wealthy,

Like anger and fear about loss,
Like competitions in escalating bipolar hate
and immigrant Othering,
Like loss of cooperative control,
Like loneliness,
Like criminalization,
judged degenerate,
defective.

We might borrow a chapter
from the natural ecologist’s textbook
about walking the second cooperative win/win mile
before anticipating win/lose meanness
in climatic return.

Meanness,
intent to harm,
rather than kindly heal,
costs society,
including privileged Straight White Fathers,
and communities
and families
and individuals,
everything good
healthy
prosperous
promoting well-being,

Like greed
envy
hate
anger
fear,

A bundle of endless need
to escape and shun
and starve and dry up
and heal
to restore ecosystemic justice

Where punishing egosupremacy
continues to fail
to motivate the hearts
of thriving healthy kindness

More redemptively co-invested
in health and safety governing systems
than competitively infested
meanness,
which costs everything,
including loss of Left and Right
cooperative enlightenment
and sacred empowerment
producing win/win co-invested kindness.

Feeling Old and Lost

I noticed just yesterday
while glowering about something else
now already
once again
forgotten…

I seem to have lost my good-sensed humor
along my stumbling
isolating internal say

Toward this red STOP! sign
searching for a different way

To find a new Earth center
for healing active hope,

To sing new scales of joyful
sad sharp focus

Performed more locally
and possibly reformed less reflectively
mesmerized by fame’s monopolistic grope.

This new reselective time
Less silently reserved
Less anxiously depressed
Less repressively suppressed.

Each morning’s dawn warning
to worship at new altars

Renewing robust octaves of communion
encompassing organic green nutrition

To redesign all creatures here below
more positive above
good-humored love
with timeless passions
hilariously sensed together
yet tragically shoved
apart.

If I were not so sweet sixteen
prepared to restart home’s immigration scene
again for my first time,
what would I rechoose to do
becoming compassion’s singing rally
with rainbow hearted allies?

If I were thirty-three,
my age of messianic crossfire
for all to red angry
horrifying see,
what would I choose to resurrect again?

And why would this revoiced
rechoiced healthier community
support potentiating integrity
with more robust good humor
this well-timed passed over
and back around
on sacred wellbeing ground?

If I were twice
my god’s reflective age
revived,
what would we joyously choose
to re-member
as half-life good golden sense
for revolving salvation’s humor?

For this tragic comedy
of tumorous migration
anxiously anticipating
integrity’s full ZeroScores
restoring just right species

All together one predation
praying for exterior relations
more integral summations
than humorless,
silent rumorless
quiet aging absence
of eternal sad-paced mercy,

At least sufficient for noticing,
just yesteryear
while glowering about something else
now already strange sadly queer,
once again forgotten.

Liberating Addiction

I need to talk about addictions,
about my addiction issues,
and maybe yours.

Addiction gets a deserved bad rap
but that doesn’t mean we have no more
than mean-spirited possibilities.

Our first addiction,
and, for the lucky ones,
the functional extended multigenerational
multicultural families
and liberating tribes,
also the last,
is love.

Love,
hidden or wide unwalled open
for another human,
another species,
another culture,
another part of Earth,
and other, costly
medicinal substitutes,

Drugs and alcohol,
guns and loud danger,
cars and sex,
coffee
and comfort
and convenience,
beauty
and enlightenment
and luxury,
notoriety
and money
and security,
all poor substitutes
for the nurturing feel
and natural touch,
nutritional smell and taste,
native sight and sounds
of love.

I have two issues
with addiction.
One is my obsessive-compulsive need
for my next, even better, fix
what’s broken.

I find it humbling
to be cravenly overpowered
by physical and mental,
natural and spiritual, want,

By my longing to climax
resiliently
resonantly
universally embraced by Earth’s most incarnate
and eternal
esteem,
communion,
co-passion.

But, physical addiction
can be softened,
eased,
healed more readily
and stadily
if not for my shame
and hide in the closet
self-judgment,

If not for my weak
and sinful shadow nature,
My need to hide
my darkest fruit truths
about not being in control
of my own autonomous will power.

And, so it is,
I hide my greatest weakness,
my greatest internalized enemy,
and thereby feed and water feelings
of guilt,
self-blame shame,

A failure to grow vulnerable love for others
I cannot see in naked love
and truth
and transparent beauty
because I fear to meet judging eyes
and minds,
voices
conserving dismissive choices.

Secret addictions
have all my darkest powers
of steadfast
and cyclical disempowerment.

Acknowledged addictions
I can call out courageously,
then curiously explore
with my housemates,
neighbors,
teachers and parents,
children and listeners,
supportive groups of similar addicts,
medicating absence of love’s
spiritual wealth
without natural walls.

Fears and angers spoken
and named
thereby weaken
as love swells
for positive addiction,

Which, as long as not risked
stays absent,
even from our healing selves
grasping mercy
for becoming merely mortal
and expecting my birthright
of a health wealthy society
good faith community
family
with multicultural addiction values
and unlovely disvalues

Summarized in GoldenRule behaviors
and positively addicted open
vulnerable
transparent
courageous
actively curious gratitude
attitudes of cooperative disclosure.

This power of my unhealthy addictions
lies more heavily in hiding my self
secret depressions
repressions
suppressions
dark impressions
that true and beautiful,
resonant and resilient love
is too far above
my emotional pay scale,
worthy of our co-redemption,

Too big a reach
to try to open up again,
to share my weak addictions
and strong compulsions
to feel and touch
taste and see
where love was lost
while pursuing lesser
hidden things.
