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.

Sympathy Isn’t Quite Empathy

To affirm and promote acceptance
of one another
and all together one
is to also affirm and promote
growing capacity for active empathy,
not settling for passive,
sometimes also ToughLove aggressive,

The best possible outcome
being mere liberating tolerance–
which is still a big evolutionary step up
from conservative survivalist
intolerance,

This Is EarthJust Us

This is Us,
my waist too big,
his check too small,
she’s not the fairest
of Them all,

We must confess,
This is Ugly,
we are a mess,
the Earth’s ungrounded
greatest pest,

But, This is Us,
our only home
to share it well
before its gone,
extracted
refracted
denuded
and fracted,
deluded
and impacted,
polluted
and red Raped… …

Sacred
health neglected
and wealth abused,
THIS IS US!
We’re all we have
and are,

All we remember
and imagine,
reimagine
our compassion
for Earth’s great final passion;
This is Us

Filled with puss,
make it
or bust,
some say
“dust from dust,”
our parts
too often rust,
we smell
of patriarchal must,
need everything
right now or bust,
This is Us… …

Not unlovely Them;
what will we do
when established trump
doesn’t rule
our wild and free imaginations
of how I can be,
live true to
my own flawed beauty,
re-connecting
re-ligioning
re-membering
through all our neglected wild cards,
This EarthTribe is Us

We’ve each made god
in our best imagination
of how united nations
remember recreations
of great and wealthy destinations
from home regeneration
for health to safely hold
future generations
singing this our great examination
of how we are
in this Great Green Transitionalization,
This is Us

When we
most brilliantly choose
to see
This Us is Earth
regiving birth
forgiving death,
our wide democratic
and deepest
existential mess,
This is Us.

Start Making Love

I wonder if salvation

[and ecologies of cooperative win/win forgiveness,
and political powers of health-trusting democracy,
and investment economies of mercy
beyond a capital self-investment monoculture]

Cooperatively swimming
in too privileged
exclusive
chosen-people redemptive economies
can be therapeutically transformed
by multicultural non-violent trust-experience
of being reliably heard and steadfastly respected
for whom we most left-hemisphere transparently
and right-hemisphere vulnerably
are listening to just now

Not only on our most leisurely sabbath days
but also throughout our most anxiously dark survival nights

Greeted with win/win non-violent anticipation
rather than win/lose Business As Usual anxiety.

I feel awed by our social capital enrichment,
our democratically cooperative win/win potential
of re-cognizing to more deeply anticipate
every individual ZeroZone
as ego-1/eco-0-balancing potential
investing in our best day sameness,
rather than over-infesting
ruminating within our worst nightmare memories
of shame
self-blame
guilt hidden and tightly gripped

Inside feelings/outside verbalized
win/lose anxious
win/win anticipation thoughts,
re-memberings
co-empathic mirrors re-echoing
re-investing
re-ligioning
re-generating
re-experiencing
re-sonant
re-silient
non-silent yet non-violent
multicultural anticipation of profound similarities
anticipating good faith,
healthy freedom to co-empathically love,
in our wealthy bias for actively compassionate hope

More powerfully enlightened
than re-mainstreaming
de-capitalizing
dis-enfranchising
dis-empowering
un-illuminating
dis-eased
di-visive
des-pairing
dis-invested
anxiously un-conscious
Lose-ego/Lose-eco-systemic potential

Outside non-violently co-passionate anticipations,
health optimizing
social
and economic
and political
and personal
and community
and global multiculturing wealth.

So, I also wonder
if empowering good faith ecopoli-culturing communities,
if civilly enlightened public service economies,
are those best co-invested
in multicultural strong communion
through win/win non-violently flowing communications

Deep learning
multigenerational ecologies
of cooperative co-investment
