Seen But Not Heard

I remain stuck
and struck
by children to be seen behaving
but preferably not heard
regardless of behavior,

But especially not heard criticizing their WiseElders
or, probably worse, mimicking them;
although some parents,
especially grandparents,
do see mimicry as graceful flattery
and occasionally a disgraceful lesson–
our children hope to see and hear us
behaving healthy, in return.

This feels very like future employees
to be seen functioning properly
according to corporate wealth-enculturing rules
and not to be heard
criticizing their WiseSuperiors.
Which may have nothing to do
with seniority or merit or wisdom,
much less all three,
or with WinWin supervisory therapeutic skills.

Seen obeying
and not heard criticizing
also feels like an evangelical fundamentalist
of God is Win
and the Devil makes us Lose–
a fascist punisher of bad behavior
and intrusive colonizing speech

Waiting his patriarchal turn
to play God
getting retributive even
bullying those disgraceful not listened to
rather than loving all (green) seen
as graceful learning DNA/RNA eco-mimicry.

Work That Reconnects
Future Searches
for God as cooperative Gaian Hypothesis,
syncretic PositivEnergy Democratic co-facilitators,
disciples of healthy grateful co-listening,
taking graceful health-directing turns

ReConnecting parents with children who watch
and act
and grow
with pride of co-creation
listening to EarthTribe voices
with polycultural
mnultigenerational compassion

These FutureSeekers
and developers
do not monoculturally confine
restorative voices of OrthodoxGod
to retributive NotSoWise PunishingElders.

WinWin CoDesigners
appreciate each voice of sacred dignity
including Wise NewBorn Integrity,
yang still with yin delight
Ego co-arising Sacred ElderEco.

Patriarchal doers
and global movers
and planet shakers,
but not plant terrorists and punishers,
are also FirstNation Matriarchal
holy global spirit-listeners,
from whom we originally Gaia re-incarnated,

Heard DNA with RNA more solidarity empowered
PositivEnergy Democracy
restoratively therapeutic
and seen less
as non-violent cooperative weakness.

And yet,
even with all that said
and probably not a prayer of being heard,
I remain stuck
and struck
by children to be seen
and preferably not heard
by God
and Allah
and parents
and future WinLose punishing employers,
monoculturing owners and colonizers
more than polyculturing co-operators
and DNA-RNA WiseElder creolizers.

Snail Trails and Rat Tails

My transportive
awesome Muse
speaks of a hiking trail
for an aging snail.

My communicative
wondrous music
is dancing choreography
for an ageless bee
coming.

 

I asked if I might speak
with the Editor in Chief
of my town’s daily GoodNews Bulletin…

No.
I do not have an appointment…

Yes.
It is regarding GoodNews
for his local variety show
he hopes to continue WinWin Gaming
hereabout
and OtherWise.
Golden Rules
and governing Ratios of trust
over active distrust,
investing in PositivEnergy
over
Negative BadNews…

Once inside this CEO’s office,
I thank him for his patriarchal time
and then spin a matriarchal web
yarn.

I ask him if he is interested
in partnering with our EcoSchool Academy
to harvest youth-led Green investigative
journal telling stories
about health v RedHot pathology,
Public Health.

He asks me,
Why and how do you see
Public, or even Private, Health
sufficiently and necessarily Green?
It seems to me,
he circuitously continues,
our circulatory nutrition systems
are red going in
and mysteriously blue respiration
breathing bilaterally out
Left and Right synergetic
Elder Right with Younger Left dynamic
old spiritual and new natural EarthTribes
of RNA then DNA extended family enscriptions
for Earth CoRevolutionary Survivors
rock rolling
MotherEarth Matriarchal SpaceTime,
4D RealTime
WinWin GoodNews Bulletins.

This sounds EgoSelf-serving,
now that I rewind and wind and wind,
and perhaps too eco-centrically webbed
for LeftBrain dominants
to fractally follow
patriarchally along,
but that might explain
the Editor in Chief’s
GoodNews circulatory problems,
pathological trends
too Red for resilient Right with Left Wings,
and actively cooperating feet.

Predictably,
Chief Editor
asks about who is paying for all this
and how will these stories
grow ad revenue.

So I use an example
of a real world,
not fake news,
journalistic activism scenario–
a Thought Experiment
for cooperative dialectal two.

Students, in secure pairs,
could survey Cliff St. neighbors
to find out how many renters
and homeowners
have had rodent issues this winter.

Why is that a reasonable question to ask?

My oldest son lives there
with hungry river rats
eating his refrigerator
and his stove
wiring.

He has noticed
extermination winter service trucks
and growing trends
frequently about accumulating private health investment,
and steel over concrete
double-barriers non-absorbing,
more appropriate to resist
our four-legged too friendly pests.

I see Public Health
but I still don’t see Green Activism.

The rats
and their terrorized roommates
probably see this as a Green cooperative ownership concern,
health-supporters avoiding way too much BadNews bloodshed issues,
competing and losing investments and assets,
nests and tails and pet paws
with their side-by-side neighbors,
hoping to spend less of little competitively-gained green goodnews
they have left for food,
now rodent-devoured,
and new wind-poured refrigerators
and new solar-fueled stoves
autonomously,
because of an unspoken
and, to date,
not noticed Public Pathology expense
of anti-cooperatively owned
WinWin Green
seen as too Red RightWing economic
and political
LeftBrain dominant
WinLose issues.

Which sells BedNews and GoodNews papers
and larger circulations
increase values for local ad co-investors,
Especially from exterminator for-profits
and neighborhood revitalization non-profits,
and public and private health services.

And possibly Green STEM EcoSchools
and PositivEnergy Cooperative Corporations
and CoHousing Developers,
and Rodent Rights Advocates,
and Tenant Organizers,
and Attorneys
and Domestic Cleaning Services
and appliance recyclers
and Environmental Protection Agencies…

You had me with BadNews exterminators.
So what’s in this for you?

My oldest son and I
co-own his home.
While he has no frig
or stove
he comes to my place to eat and eat.

That young man
and his girl
can EAT!

And, I’m paying for half
of our exterminator contract
with my Social Security income.
Why do you ask?

Because if you have no skin in this WinWin Game,
then I don’t know if I can trust
your lack of ego-investment.

For me,
to be a Green 2020 Health Revolutionary
is awesomely resonant wealth
of Earth’s Bilateral Resilience,
sung through my-our DNA’s past co-investments
regenerating Earth’s EcoSchool History.

 

My reincarnating
awesome DNA-RNA Muse
unfolds hiking snails
merging ancient four-seasoned trails.

My inside music
wondrous bilateral communication
dances bee language
of ageless choreography
becoming co-operators.

Potlatch Cafe for Gardeners

Dear Covenant to Empower Children, Inc.

I was in a Potlatch CoHousing Cafe
just the other repair-invested day
for both ego and eco therapy.

Our host introduced
this Potlatch SkillShare event
speaking to himself:

The less I share skills and resources
on cooperative terms
of common educational PositivEnergy endeavor,

The more plutocratically powerful
anti-social logic
of private learning affluence
elitism
entitlement
sexism
racism
tumors growing within healthier democracy,

Cooperative
paid-forward ownership
for restoring justice,
justice
as cooperatively-owned peace.

So it was
I thought of you,
covenanted to caregiving
and not corporate profit,
your mission to restore therapeutic health
to under-nourished children
and their not-full-healthing families.

Broken souls
with broken belongings,
longings for everything therapeutic cafes
and lending libraries
for computers and karaoke machines,
musical instruments and microphones,
speakers and costumes,
clothing and furniture,
bicycles and toys,
stories and songs
therapeutically
non-violently shared.

Repaired
ecotherapeutic co-housing and garden fixers
to extend family neighborhood co-responsibilities.

Cooperatively organized
by non-violent therapeutic innovators,
local restorative justice administrators,
nonprofit co-housing and community gardening
and nutritious interior-exterior landscaping,
inside-outside nurturing design,
cooperatively-invested and self-managing families
growing neighborhood organizations.

Covenants to prosper
tool and toy and school libraries,
co-housing recreation skill-sharing centers,
ego-ecotherapeutic non-violent churches and synagogues
and temples and courthouses
and cooperatively-owned city halls
co-investing in ego/ecotherapeutic businesses
and vocations.

Ego/eco-therapist interns
including skilled do-it-ourselfers,
professional hurt child cooperative parents
with childcare giving repair businesses,
apprentices interested in synergetic
therapy-related careers
in neighborhood planning and co-design,
outdoor installations and ego/eco-evaluations
of health care giving as love receiving.

This Potlatch Cafe and Garden
was multiculturally filled
to multigenerational capacity
with innovative self and other fixers
cooperatively learning
about facilitating ego/eco-repairs.

Which brings in new employee-owners
to local repair incubation businesses
and empowerment cafe members
undertaking and overtaking cooperatives
for ecopolitical health-wealth restorations.

Healthy keys to continually growing
Potlatch CoHousing Cafes
are those held by community WinWin
outdoor-indoor entertainment innovators,
street clowns and village green sages,
parental fools and innocent teacher healers
in love with therapeutic life.

Covenants to CareGive Children
and their cooperative co-housed families
coordinated and ecotherapeutically operated
by established hospitality foundations
like local cooperative-restorative climate-care governments
and nonprofit empowerment missioned organizations
committed to potlatch provide
investments and therapeutic non-violent staff
and volunteer intern cooperative familycare members
to coordinate co-housing residents
and neighborhood transporters
and young cafe and garden after-school volunteers.

Covenants for Healing
could grow cooperatively owned therapeutic cafes
and gardens
and multicultural multigenerational homes
accessible co-housing options
for nurturing community residents

So repairing,
rather than discarding,
people,
plants,
and things,

Incubating interdependent potlatch stewards
becoming post-millennial,
WinWin nutritional
for covenant-holders
and covenant-constituents
with secular-sacred dipolar co-arising faith
in PositivEnergy Democracy
for growing neighborhood
Potlatch Cafes
in CoRedemptive Gardens.

With warm hope
you are enjoying this child empowering day

Trading Trees Into Timber

I see someone wants to trade
eight hundred year old trees
for timber.

Clearly,
not someone who knows how to listen
to WiseElders.

When these trees were mere seedlings,
they were already exploring how deep and rich
is Earth’s flowering flow
of nurturing rivers.

Most people in that ancient time
were monotonously sure
Earth is simply,
fundamentally,
even evangelistically,
flat.

And
eight hundred years later
still clueless
how deep and rich
is Earth’s flowering flow
of multiculturing sacred time.

If you have ever read

from reading them together

Family Health Assessment

I have watched my youngest son
while nurses give him baths
using diverse models of health optimization
ranging from PositivEnergy Promotion,
restorative ego-eco
I-Thou therapies,
to lower not too much NegativEnergy concerns
for hygienic technology professional management,
anger and fear commercialized insurance
consumer protection assurance,
in which their client,
my youngest son,
tends to disappear
from competitively BusinessAsUsual
extractive
distractive
reductively disengaged
solipsistic view.

I could say the same of parents
and older siblings
reading a story elite professionally,
but not nonelite co-passionately,

And of teachers
not actively listening to our own best and curiously paradoxical lessons
on living within more cooperative aspirations
for health abundant
fertile wealth.

 

I have an eldest son
addicted to his outside search
for inside self-esteem.

He would be a Loyal Taoist Soldier
if he had not grown up and out
among secularized angry yin-suppressors
of Beauty’s rich creolizing values.

He would African-American be
a somewhat hyperactive
yet WiseElder Mystic
if he had been raised by Taoist Sisters
rather than a yin-fearful,

to not go an entire day,
much less a week,
and a month would be eternity in empty hell,
without his Muse-THC.
stoned into rhythmic musicality.

Just as he was not to go through his best day,
and week,
and month of early school development
without feeling stoned
by his invisibility
as a person who mattered,
has noble and righteous and sacred potential,
gifts of mystic yin-rooted cooperative value
for singing and dancing
drumming and beating

Creolizing rhythms
Blues

Beat with syncopated

Mystic Warrior Values.

I have three sons,
one demented daughter,
born midst YangLeft Industrializing overshoot,
Tipping Pointed
to expose premillennial prejudice
of Yang as value rich
and Yin as matriotic under-valued,
hearing later millennial Revolutions
against Yang overconsumption
of Sacred Mystical Earth
and concomitant bloated human over-population

As measured by my nonelite sons
and one demented sacred daughter
who know this threatening pathological climate
already depresses their basic special humane yin-value
as icons of MotherEarth’s beautiful
sense of polyculturing humor.

Someday my eldest son
may read pre-millennial prophets
forecasting ZeroZen WinWin Fusing Dipolar Economists
re-centering his true and beautiful
Yin-Mystic sacred value
African-American creolized
in Western restoring therapeutic
Yang/Yin Resilient Justice.

He may yet read
of postmillennial healers

He will see himself
as an ego-ecosystemic cooperative producer
of healthier nature-spirit food,

I have an eldest son
who will remember
what he must have always pre-THC known,
YangCultures are nutritionally healthy
only as they are also not YinClimate pathological,
demonizing WiseElder Mystics and Matriarchs,
haters of Yang-Yin polypaths
polyphonic rhythms and patterns,
bigots against WinWin music and full-octaved color

I have three sons
and one demented daughter
