River Voice

Here lies what this aged Indigenous River
thinks s/he needs
and wants, perhaps,
but most emphatically feels,
from us.

We continue to use Her
more like a shameful toilet
than her delivery system
of upstream pure
and nutritious drinking water
would suggest she had coming
from former deep green estuaries

Root flow systems
sacredly emerging functions
from deep EarthMother’s darkest
primal wu-wei
womb,
dipolar co-arising
health is wealth compunctions.

Ancient indigenous wisdom
suggests we would be healthier
if we didn’t on MamaEarth,
from whom we eat and drink,
should we hope to keep hunger
and thirst at bay
with and for future regenerations

Pursuing our healthiest dipolar nature-spirit
co-arising win/win wealth
of ecopolitically enlightened nutrition

And empowering fertile poop repurposing
for cultivating improved soil health trends

Ego- and Eco-systemic
permaculturing design,
planning,
nonviolent implementation priorities
for local community resilience.
