DeCapitating Capitalism

We are nearly all macro-economic capitalists
while hoping our neighbors
prefer micro-economic cooperativists

S/he said
while burning up
and out.

Yet,
a Patriarchal Capitalist
has also fully monopolized
his LeftBrain lessons
and monotheistic idolizing faith
in micro-economic,
familial
monocultural tribalist,
nation-state exceptionalist,
straight white male privileged
zero-sum competitive commodified
consumer relationships

S/he continued
while drowning
in flows of negative isms
and mono-myopic jisms.

Patriarchal capitalist
mistake what I share,
how I gift
as a weakening sign
of old girl sacred grace;
worth no more than a debit
in my personal checking account

S/he observed
while giving out neuro-systemic love
co-investments
and dispassionately viral hate
divestments.

Patriarchal capitalists
may narcissistically fail to notice
Love costs nothing
and also heals lonely
lack of self-forgiveness wounds
inflicted by past complicated relationships
and lack of valued elationships;
AND
Hate costs everything,
leading to despair
about oneself,
about one’s species,
about one’s sacred home,
and planet

S/he said
while re-creating macro-economic
cooperative health systems
AND
A dark promise of unease
and climatic disease
for at least our next seven impoverished
unenlightened
disempowered degenerations.

Patriarchal capitalists
are anthrosupremacists,
believing only human matter
and matters
matter

S/he said
while re-connecting
Open Whole Organic Systems,
EarthTribe living networks
interdependently serving resilient
neurosensory healthy lives
of intrinsic
integral reweaving value.

And,
for a Patriarchal Capitalist,
any Thing without co-relational value
as at least a potential resource
for privileged Anthro survival
and symbols of thrival
or is a disvalue
in a ZeroSum liability or asset game,
either divinely Good
or inhumanely Bad,
hoarding inspired by Original Sin

S/he complained
while advocating
for primal compassionate
giveaway Attachment.

Patriarchal-Capitalism
and PolyCultural-Communion
are negative
and positive
two binomially often unknown
and unspoken worldviews
of LoseLose
and WinWin fractal frame
in every dialectical
bilateral
appositional relationship

S/he heard then said
smelled then tasted
touched then felt
perceived then saw
health then also resilient wealth.

Patriarchal capitalists
remain too comfortable
settling for hostile and predative,
angry and traumatized
polarized economic and political survivalist
outcomes

S/he thought
and engaged her preferential vocation
for healthy and safe
enriched and enlightened
cooperative thrival experience

On the other hand,
PolyCultural CoOperativists
share deeper local
and wider global values
for environmental health and safety
through macro-
and micro-economic mutual wins
through co-relationally co-passionate
multicultural values
setting Marx and Engel’s critical analysis
of capitalism aside,
Not so much because health advocates
benignly misjudge
win/lose competitive worldviews
of natural evolution
as our road toward
something better than growing
greed and hopeless perdition,
but because of Marx/Engel’s silence
on anthrosupremacist perils
of patriarchalism

S/he encouraged
micro-ego
and macro-economial
PolyCultural-CoOperativists
to think more strategically win/win
for health and safety opportunity,
to set aside Patriarchal-Capitalism’s
risky lose/lose traumatic outcomes
unacceptable to MotherEartha’s
brilliantly co-passionate
co-invested
global resilience.

Spirited Therapeutic Systems

It might become too ironically
and iconically embareassing
to admit
I am taking a (s)hit
while exploring
my latest
and perhaps final
nutritional surmise
compressing peak climax
surprise

A well-capitalized
Systematic Theology
of EcoLogical Systems
is not such
an inviting much
of a moving title

Yet herein
we might energetically
not also massively invite “should”
raise up Yang’s enlightening strengths
without also evacuating Yin’s paradoxical
outgoing flow
of nutritional exchange
from what was brown
and healthy egocentric ownership
going down
into integral potential
for ecosystemic stewardship
as dull
as giving a crap
might not resound

Yang
could become LeftHemisphere’s name
too often verbally expressed
overly impressed with ecologically
abstractly decontextualized
secularized lack of curiosity
about patriarchally
well-capitalized
anal Trumpistic retention

AND
Yintegrity’s dipolar co-gravitating
unconditional regard
for self-therapeutic indigenous wisdom
often nonverbally nonviolently felt
too often ecowomanist suppressed
Yang obstructive repressed
economically and politically oppressed
polytheistic sacred sacramental
excremental integrity
of health care giving

nutritionally nurturing
fertile regenerative
co-assets.

Yang dominant
conditional curiosity
about what is safe
and also healthy
to cooperatively
and transparently
black
v brown
v suspiciously blond disregard
too often seeks inside enlightenment
from outside above

While Yin’s anally repressed integrity
wants to soil
and soul empower
by releasing egocentric resources from within
not perpetuating anthrosupremacist
agonizing constipation
pushing down against
royal ceramic throne imbalance

In a frightening gut-wrenching worldview
wherein positive does not quite logically
or ecologically
or analogically
or psychologically
or gastro-intestinally
or polyvagally neuro-systemically
equal not negative

Like 1 outgoing nutritional pole
and 0 outflowing nurturing hole
feel like Yang
unconditionally positive regarding
not not paradoxical Yintegral potential
self-health care
reproducing Earth soil’s
repurposing wealth-share potential
nonzero soul.

Yang integrity
hears
and bears down
with deep-seated dualdark brown
systemic enlightenment
biologically whole
holy open for fertile
Yintegrity.

I painfully need now
and want here
to communally co-hear
coherent co-empowerment
through eco-theological
Yang secular bodies don’t stink
where sacred Yintegral minds don’t blink

MAGA Power

When was the last time you heard
or saw
or felt MAGA group-think
capable of globally deep transformative systems
thinking
and feeling
and touching
and seeing
and hearing
and smelling
and tasting
health grows safe wealth?

Actively searching for benign
multicultural indigenous wisdom

Even if such an inclusive EarthTribal worldview
might replace our monopoly of monocultural
monotheism
fueling
feeding
breeding
our rabidly polarizing
and degenerating Anthropocene

Despite our pre-millennial pentacostal
panentheistic Hole Open Spirit
renaturing polyculturally polyphonic
peace Lilies of Earth’s Valley

Singing and dancing,
briding and grooming
polypathic win/win intent
of green work parties
democratically equitable
and energetically rebalancing
cooperative inter-religious
multicultural values

Left/Right
Liberating/Conservational
bicamerally bipartisan balanced
depolarizing
for a more sacredly regenerative
Anthropocene

Than any MAGA group-unconscious
unwoke
anti-democratic mob of LeftBrain dominant
StraightWhiteMale privileged
Patriarchal-Capitalist autocrats
and kleptocrats
I have seen
and heard
and felt

Still capable of bipartisan political intent
to achieve globally deep transformative systems
through healthiest-wealth economic
win/win co-invested thinking

And not stealing
from future health wealthing regenerations

Seventh Generation ReOrientation

What have we learned?

What is our big 2020 revision takeaway
from this win/lose
zero-sum failure

To transparently cooperate
for our most inclusive win/win health
and long-term safety,
economic
and political
and social
and physical
and mental health
resilience?

From my own observation,
probably colored
multihued and complexly patterned
by Integral Permaculture Design,

And Community Mediation
for restorative peace resolutions
in perennial win/lose retributive conflict situations,
clashes between conservative LeftBrain dominant
and liberal RightBrain interdependent cultures.

  1. To optimize resilience
    for at least the next seven generations,
    the next 140 years,
    bringing us to the year 2160

Here, on our cooperatively co-invested home planet,
we could choose to return to indigenous wisdom,
to include health and safety of our trees,
our neighbors,
rivers,
our soil
our water supply,
our green renewable energy resources,
our fresh and clean river valleyed breezes,
our plants,
our domestic animals,
our wild animal cousins
our sacred EarthMothers.

We do better when our healthy safe priorities
remain broadly contextualized,
less LeftBrain boundaried,
broadening our ecosystemic spatial identities
and deepening our speciated individuation
back through monotheistic history
of this now troubling
post-millennial
StraightWhiteMale privileged
LeftBrain corporately dominant
Anthropocene

Predicting unprecedented ecocide,
genocide,
rabid polarization,
economic divestment
and overwhelming political mistrust

During which no healthy democracy
could resiliently endure
as long as our infrastructure,
concrete
steel beamed
bricks and mortar,
budgets and financial planning,

Omit choosing cooperative win/win games
and ecofeminist green co-investment strategies
for health and safety
of our now excluded trees,
plants,
planet

EarthTribe
everyday multiculturing
sacredly resonant
creolization liturgies
of LeftBrain co-intelligence
loving RightBrain co-empowerment.

Dearly Departing Christians

Many of you live
humbly and heartily
patriotically and industriously
nutritiously and faithfully
in Western and Southern States,

United in this time of shrinking reservoirs,
dying rivers,
hurricaned coastal residents

Displaced by floods,
invasive mold,
voracious rot and rats,

Barren top soil,
failing electrical networks,
drought,
inhumane heat,
decimated forests

Bereft of soil-restoring permaculture,
robust polycultural nutrition systems,
victory community re-engagement gardens.

U.S. long-term resilient infrastructure
to support your children
and grandchildren,
is so threatened by North American climate degeneration
that your own great-grand regeneration,
should they actually be born
and thrive long enough to be successfully educated
about U.S. pre-millennial history,
about rabid post-millennial partisan monotheistic
monoculturalism,
about your own Christian evangelical anthrosupremacism

These great grandchildren
will be shocked and appalled
stressed and depressed
that you substituted “pro-life”
for anti-abortion rabidity,

Mystified that you thought this non-issue
about whom more effectively supports healthy life,
blue liberals or red conservatives?
(when the answer is,
and always was,
both, responding to trauma
humanely
and divinely together)

Why have you set the long-term
EarthTribe stage for shock
and degenerative awe
against our next seven survivor generations?

Why have you spent all your Christian fundamental investments
on aborting universal health care
and not one red cent
on supporting future humane life

On a restored permacultural USA
health and resilience plan
for future survivors
of your ego-atheistic accomplishments,

Ecocide
and massively inhumane genocide,
have already become an ecological
and theological problem
for your dark
and entirely nonRapturous
legacy.

You are currently betting on unredeemed idolatry,
for Hell on Earth
instead of Heaven on rebirthing Earth

Investing divisive vitriol
carried, marketed, transported
by StraightWhiteWesternMale privileged
massive communication systems

Become so loudly
and brightly beamed
into the hearts of Earth’s green co-messiahs
and inter-religious ecofeminist bodhisattvas,

Western and Eastern teachers
and prophets
and mystics,
scientists
and artists
and philosophers
and creation theologians,
green indigenous matriarchs
co-investing in cooperative
nutritional
resilient healthcare economies
and bipartisan
bicameral political empowerment

Not mentioned by your vituperations,
solemn sermons
against sadly exigent
induced abortions,
a mote in liberal eyes
ridiculously and myopically beamed
through dogmatically theoretical
predative voices
red blood chillingly comfortable
with denying current abortion
of sacred EarthTribe.

Where in the Gospels do you find Jesus?
On the side of the Roman industrial militarized complex,
ecocidally against God the EarthCare Creator’s polycultural love
for all sacred lives,

Empowering fertile
cooperative
inter-religious
deep listening
and learning
and holy nature-spirited compassioning lives

Including your own great grandchildren
who may survive
after reluctantly relinquishing
degenerating hope for health sustaining life
in these disuniting States

No longer suitable for peaceful
humane
healthy
resilient life
because, in significant part,
you have taken your pro-life position
against individual mothers’ rights
while mute
or actively disdainful
about protests against patriarchal
Capitalist corporate
white privileged abortion
of a living
organic
sacred MotherEarth

When will your survivors
learn about your polyculturally cooperative reform,
your inter-religious green revival,
your sacred holy nature/spirit
indigenously wise
integrity?

Of and for all
that becomes divinely humane
co-messianic
co-invested
enlivened permacultural Truth
greets polycultural Beauty

As LeftBrain bicameral enlightenment
meets RightBrain multicultural empowerment

As Yang strong conservation
repeats Yintegral liberal love

In lavishly global
EarthTribe compassion
for future sacred survivors
of Western and Southern State
climate desecrating
degeneration.

Love Begets Resilience

Back in our preverbal day
of healthy regenerating time,
indigenous wisdom
pursued peak experiences
of cooperative pleasure,
deep co-empathic embrace.

Sometimes,
especially when this pleasure was sustained,
euphoric,
ejaculatory
and reverberating in cycles
of deep wombed ecstasy,
procreation happened,
preferably in the spring
when new life is more likely to thrive
with bountiful rain
and lusty bullfrog refrains.

Not until later did monotheistic minds
decontextualize procreative purposes
from pro-ecstatic deep dark intimate meanings

Co-gravitations
dipolar co-arisings
coupling erotic organisms
regenerating co-passionate feelings
evolving love’s healthy ecological intent
to regenerate outward together
before degenerating inward apart.

Love is a pleasant feeling,
and a healthy wealth principle
of recreative compassion,
enlivenment.

A principle of ecological integrity
describes,
without dismembered dogmatic prescriptions,
these regenerative healthy ways
truths
trusts
in which living communions
thrive on this sacred planet

Interdependent networks
of cells
organisms
bioregions
ecosystems
EarthTribal species,
multigenerational families

Find our co-identities
while also compelling MeWe
individual/cultural
health/wealthy relationships
win/win egocentric within
AND with ecohabitat Others

Loving integrity reigns
within humanity’s historical context
of compassionate win/win integral
multicultural
polycultural systems surrounding Earth,
spring raining down upon Earth birth,
breezing across and warmly through,
sunlighting our days
and star studding shared nights.

Finding balance between one’s ego,
our individual cooperative win/win narratives,
and those of compassionate Others
represents EarthTribe’s win/lose wounded heart
of passion
love
unconditioned warm
and wet mesmerized regard
for mutual pleasure
pressure
passion
pulling and pushing
precognitive integrity.

In my curious stories
of win/win love,
when my deepest darkly hidden desire
includes my Other partner
enjoying our neuro-sensory
greatest
healthiest
robust
playful happiness,
some resonant relationship
more contextually co-empathic
profoundly unitarian
and multiculturally universal
than a personal procreative intention
happily emerges.

Right to Left bicameral climaxes
are not so much for a creative future purpose
as swimming in multisensory recreative meaning
here
for passion now,
embodied
for compassioning minds,
neurosystemic wholesome space
for EarthTribal regenerating
eternally connected
timeless time

In storming
maelstrom moments,
new expanding love stories
become

Fundamental flowing nature/spirit
body/mind narratives
re-membering how we have become
healthy alive,
enlivened,
undeadened.

This multisensory neuro-system
of regenerating contagious achievement
in cooperative win/win
ego-health/eco-wealth global networks
is where re-ligioning
re-connecting
re-membering
re-weaving
re-lusting
re-creating freedom
of compassionate verbal
and nonverbal communicating egos
hope to become co-invested curiosity

Resiliently harmonizing
biosystemically resonating
within Earth’s whole open
win/lose risk-avoidant
cooperative beauty/pleasure seeking
eco/theo-logical
embodied left
and sacred right
bilaterally resilient mind.

Note: This piece is in appreciative dialogue with Andreas Weber’s Matter & Desire: An Erotic Ecology, especially the first paragraph on p. 9.

What is THAT about?

Truthfully,
and kinda depressing,
I can’t “manage” anger
any better than fear
and contagious distrust
and nearly constant anxiety
and chronic depression.

In nonviolent communication practice circles,
peace networks,
organic therapeutic systems,
“curiosity” slowly grows ascendent
as “patience” to resist negative feelings
and “impatience” with shameless Others
and not so blameless Selves
fades off into a less used lexicon.

Impatience about expressing anger,
verbally and nonverbally,
evokes LeftBrain dominant
patriarchal
capitalist
corporate management models
for hierarchically oppressive
suppressive
repressive
not really impressive
humorless control.

Curiosity about deep therapeutic win/win potential
for evolving healthcare competencies
comes from a political economy
of co-operative compassion

NOT: intimidating
and frightening scarcity
of control
sufficient to guarantee
a never-ending expansion
of ego-engorgement
through solitary
deductive
reductive
dualistic non-enlightenment
segregating the StraightWhiteMale
corporate well-capitalized WINners
from us unstraight
unwhite
unmale frightening
and yet uppity LOSErs

Apparently LeftBrain incapable
of managing our anger issues,
sometimes frightened by vulnerability
and emotional transparency
yet quietly curious about compassion
and neuro-sensory peak
RightBrain prominent
interdependent
co-empathic
co-invested peak spiritual experiences
biological
ecological
theologically transcendent

Exploding boundaries of autonomous ego-defensiveness
and, possibly, even Either/Or,
LeftBrain dominant Cause
OR RightBrain felt Effect,
StraightWhite monotheistic
Capital-theistic compunctions,
monoculturally supremacist,
macroeconomic win/lose predative,
pathologically angry and frightening
terrorized global apartisan politics.

Remarkably unfazed
by climax-trending ecocide
and degenerative patriarchal
capitalist
LeftBrain narcissistic
snarky
Us v Them genocide

Unconscious about our lack of control
to manage our viral global anger
while spiritually and naturally,
theologically and ecologically,
dying
from lack of win/win curious
green cooperative thrival.

Truthfully,
and kinda depressing,
we can’t “manage” anger
any better than climate fear
and contagious EarthTribal distrust
and nearly constant neuro-systemic anxiety
and chronic LeftBrain dominant
divisive depression.

Distancing Communication

Distancing communication
seems like an oxymoron,
like dissonant communion.

My ego center speaks communication
while my organic systemic body listens
for communion

Discerning what feels confluent,
resonant with ecological
health is wealth
EarthTribal indigenous experience

AND what feels like aggressive,
possibly predative,
lose/lose DIScommunication
distressed communication
dissonant noise
dissociative distancing,
sometimes ominously silent
dormant
terminal absence
of verbal communication

AND what feels like dualistic
win/lose MIScommunication,
missed cooperative win/win opportunity
too Either my way
Or hit the highway
competitively risky,
too egocentric
too anthrosupremacist
too StraightWhiteMale privileged
too LeftBrain verbally dominant
too lacking co-passion,
too unwoke,
but feeling more like ignorance
than lose/lose malignant
despairing
pathological intent
to DIScommunicate.

My ecosystemic body feels
Trust in win/win active hope,
DIStrust for surviving lose/lose despair,
economic and ecological degeneration,
MIStrust of win/lose monoculturing monopolies
monotheistic
monochromatically anthrosupremacist

Preachers
and teachers
of pure white
bright paternalistic capitalism
as Earth’s only way
truth
life toward healthy salvation.

Trust breeds neuro-systemic integrity.
DIStrust feeds overwhelming feelings
of violently weaponed despair.
MIStrust of win/lose
either/or
LeftBrain dominant thinking
not compliant with ecologically healthy experience
is, on my best feeling days
and peace dreaming nights,
a therapeutic opportunity tool
for responding to health risk trauma.

Was War Worth It?

Asked an NPR journalist
of U.S. soldiers
damaged in Afghanistan
direct fire
for one hundred everydays,

“Was it worth it?”

“I can’t answer that question.”

She asks more hesitantly again
of another veteran,

“Was it worth it to you?”

A good soldier,
“I can answer that question
only as an individual.
It was what our Nation
asked of us.”

Neither the question,
nor the answer,
starts at the beginning.

What were this Nation’s goals?
What were these objectives worth
to our Nation’s interests?
Did we pay more
or less
than that?

Who would dare answer such questions?

With a Yes, of course
the price was right

With a No, of course
life,
like health,
is fathomlessly priceless
miraculous
exquisite
elegant
sacred.

How was your time in deadly conflict
worthwhile to you?
How was it not worthwhile
to you,
your family and friends,
future generations?

What would you have done instead
if your Nation
had not asked this soldiering on
from you?
This calculated exposure to high stress,
anxiety,
environmental toxins,
destroyed property,
collective terror
fear
anger
loss
wounds
death of friends,
allies
other organic species,
death of people you aimed toward
with lethal accuracy.

Why are we civilians
so quick to celebrate
our soldiers’ shared response
to what our governments ask
of our young adults?

Why is “I can’t answer that”
a sufficient answer
to “Was violence worth the price to you?”

But,
when we consider tragedies (despairing comedies?)
for all EarthTribes
from global climate degeneration,

When will curious journalists ask,
Was our violence against terror
worth our peaceful returns?

When will global soldiers ask
and answer
It was what Earth asked of Me
and asks of We,
planting trees and grasses,
healing rivers
lakes
wetlands
organic topsoil,
protecting parched forests
and thirsty endangered species.

What does Earth ask of us?
What are Her public health care goals?
What are these objectives worth
to our resilient EarthTribe interests?

Are we,
as a species,
and as individuals,
paying too much?
Not enough?
Just right with left
bicameral
bipartisan
even-handed bilateral intelligence
for future EarthTribe
wealth optimizing regenerations?
