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.

ReCycling Days and Nights

Harvey Feinstein,
in I WAS BETTER LAST NIGHT
reflects:

“Artists
return to paint the same landscape
over and again,
but
they do so looking forward.”

“The goal isn’t to copy
what they’ve already done,
but to try to capture it all anew.”

“The question isn’t ‘What did I see?’
–it’s ‘What DO I see?’

And what might we hope to feel
recommemorating
organically reconnecting
inter-religioning
multiculturally regenerating again?

And so it is also true,
I hope:

Artists
and ecofeminists
and compassionate bodhisattvas,
green messianic panentheists
and wounded
suffering GLBTQ+ woke servants

Return each morning contemplating
how and why
to paint this same nurturing EarthTribal landscape over
and again,
but to do so looking compassionately
win/win
cooperatively co-invested
ecopolitically health wealth optimizing
forward

Not to competitively win/lose copy
our leftbrain dominant
straight white male privileged past
but to win/win try to capture
blue starlight ecstasy
and full green GrandMother Moon integrity
indigenously anew.

Another Love Letter

So, this is a love letter
from me
to you
for us.

Quiet Cream
and well moisturized Tan
were my first warm
and appreciative glimpse of you

Engaged listener.
Looks gay men in wounded eyes
while listening,
then speaking,
searching for
and finding acceptance,
at least for here
and now.

While both our neuro-systems ask,
with each breath inhaled,
Am I safe?
Each breath exhaled,
Is this healthy?

Or maybe,
ummm…
“I’ll have to think about that.”

Not so much
as a glance my witnessing way,
Wondering,
Is he why I am here?
I hope

Would I be appropriate
to here become
for just one Other?

You were not distracted
easily
from eyes
and voices
surrounding your place
in this 44th chapter
in not patriarchal,
but truly not green ecofeminist either,
Gayla BTQ versatile,
exclusive top,
promiscuously inclusive bottom,
anonymous,
romantic-erotic,
occasionally sacredly orgasmic,
political sex health history.

I wondered
then
as now
where we could fit

In gaps of loneliness
of not being fully known,
exposed,
spiritually and naturally naked
transparent
vulnerable,
fully co-invested,
transculturally cooperative,
co-empathic
co-passionate,
quietly completing each other’s unsaid senses,
thoughts,
integrity,
warmth,
refulgent quenching wetness.

Then, that first smile
just for me.

I am lost to your white teeth,
left-sided dimple,
eyelashes heavy lidding brown-eyed welcome
despite it all

Trust in integrity’s healing potential
after considering all losses,
stressors,
past troubling relationships
in gay white male privilege.

There we were
and here we are
ongoing

Me
writing this love letter,

You
curiously waiting to hear
and see
and feel,
to touch
and be touched by,
something possibly on your way,
a lovely surprise

Because
No one writes love letters
evermore

Painlessly including
those in quiet ecstasy
for quiet Cream
and well-moisturized Tan.

Human History Class

Tempting to offer an anthropological history class
and call it Earth History,
beginning with our current
messy
riled up
LeftBrain emergently dominating
our fracturing Anthropocene.

While trust seems true
and wise
when our public educational system
holds up humanism
and capitalism
as, together, supportive
of our underlying survival
of the fittest evolutionary orthodoxy,

Over in the Religious Studies Department,
we enjoy a wider variety,
from monotheistic
through panentheistic,
of dynamic political
and economic EarthHealth History.

Cultural climate history
also feels true
and trusted
from a more inclusive lens,
remembering back
and back
and back

When Earth’s most robust
and resilient capitalism,
competitive organisms,
required an underlying universal
multicultural value
for win/win egalitarian life-norms
supporting robustly transactional
regenerative
positive
healthy
ecosystemic creolizing outcomes.

Where normative expectations
of cooperative rules
for human
and Other life-systems integrity
are absent,

Including healthy democracy
educational systems,

EarthTribes do not experience
a satisfying competitive atmosphere
of resiliently developed
win/lose zero-sum capitalism;

Instead,
throughout recorded
LeftBrain dominant
Anthropocene history,
humans decry lack of sacred integrity
as theft,
greed,
piracy,
toxic corruption,
viral eruption,
bad business deception,
egregious predation
technological militarization

Of these shunning
shaming
blaming things,
EarthWars evolve;

Not Trust

and Integrity

healthy wealth

Of cooperative green economies
dustily uncovered
in Taoist co-governing Balance,
polypathic Zeroism co-binary ballast,

win/win transactional

Of SunLight/EarthPower energy systems,

Co-arising polyculturally healthy

Dissing Economic-Ecological GreenResonance

Why does this resonance of love,
lovely resonance,
feel so complexly complicated
to achieve?

Complicating,
complicit in felt imperfection

While red hot hate
burns resiliently,
remains pure
and uncomplicated,
unnuanced,

Vengeance is Mine!
bright as red anger
smoldering in cold

of perfect disregard,

unequivocal unilteral conviction

I was right
to never truly love

And feels impossible

all the LeftBrain dominant facts
of Earth’s eventual mortality.
