Free Love For Sale

Do you remember stories about the incensed 60s?

The smoke-filled Beatles,
and acrid flowering Hippies,
and Aquarian Age of Free Love.

It fizzled out.
It wasn’t such a Great Transition
as we had hoped.
Exhausted by Foreign and Civil Rights v Wrongs losses
by the later 70s,
further exterminated by AIDS
as God’s holy holocaust
retribution against FreeLove
during the 80s,
and on toward this Climate Restoration Challenge
to learn rules and disciplines of consciousness,
laws of order
for cooperative peace
polyculturing Original Constitutional Intent.

Free Love remained for sale
or rent
usually to the highest bidder.

I was disappointed about this fizzle,
although more of a journalist,
witness of history,
than an active Occupier of compelling CoOperative HerStory
in my Golden Era youth.

My youth researching and writing
and dreaming
about cooperative faith community development,
assuming that’s what we all
most WinWin hoped for.

I was, and remain, rooting for more graceful
and sacred gratitude outcomes,
global love,
even if not totally bottom-line self-other health optimizing,
WinWin good karma for All EarthTribes.

I still hope what we learn
from this more recent Free Love history,
Love is liberating
from hate
and fear
and anger-mongering
and violence-marketing,
selling Earth’s Soul as defended best
by investing in retributive just wars
and aggressions,
ever bigger and mightier Buttons.

Love grows vastly liberating of hate,
but is never free.

Love costs co-investors every cooperatively-owned thing,
every habituated and co-managed nature-spirit place,

Love costs every mature wise-loving thought
and image
and investment
of every person.

Love costs every WinWin deep learning-loving child.

Love co-arises every multicultural liberating advocate
of and for Revolutionary WinWin Youth,

Love invests in every mature democratic cooperative
owned by richly creolizing producers and consumers
with Original Constitutional Intent
of DNA WinWin Continuous Quality Improvement
wealth of health.

Love co-arises every WiseElder welfare of greening forests.

Love costs ecosystemic WinWin purple Valleys
in-between EgoYang ultra-violet Mountains
reflected in turgid turquoise Oceans
of polynomial identities,
dynamically breathing Organic Networks,

Love invests through polypathic EarthSoul Seeds,
reweaving polyphonic DeepLearning DNA-RNA Cooperatives.

Love resonates radiant RainbowTribes
singing in FullOctaves
of double-bound spacetime co-enlightenment;
double-fractal ultra-violet
EarthSoul Integrity.

Liberating rainbows of love
are not free;
Not free of WinWin disciplines expecting integrity,
but free for gratefully growing timeless integrity,
synergy of scales and values and nurturing octaves.

Love costs everything co-investing
co-arising everyplace
for all four ZeroSum Sacred Development Seasons,

Winters of impatient LoseLose Advent,
Springs of WinWin infancy,
Summers of WinWin millennially mountainous maturations,
Fall harvests
of Left-Right Winging
swinging co-integrity,
polypathic promise,
fully-rainbow invested.

Love is never free of healthy love.
Love without requited love
is not love;
it is longing for love’s return.

Love only co-arises
co-investing in all WinWin Others.


Final ZeroSum Frontier

Even if we were to win
these hunting
and killing
and fishing
and devouring
and gathering
and hoarding
and victimizing
and offending
and criminalizing
and punishing
holy wars
and sacred causes,

We would lose
our vocation
to mentor and facilitate restoration,
ego and ecotherapy reforestation,
measured in polycultural health outcomes
by all democratically respected
and trusted to remain interdependent

Extended even to the vipers
and poisonous spiders and ivy
and choking evangelical fake-Christians
and jihad self-terrorizing fake-Moslems,
and fear and hate-mongerers of all bad faiths,
even those Pharisees and Sadducees
already too aristocratic,
rich and powerful capital hoarding
for their own healthy extended family care-giving
and receiving love
and cooperatively owned and managed grace
and positive synergy and karma.

Deniers of NatureMystic Messiahs
and Bodhisattva PeaceCircle Witnesses
are rabid wolves.

Those who choose
to Lose
at shallow capitalism
to Lose
at deep ego-ecological wisdom
are fake-redeemer sheep,
with retributive justice discipleship ways,
Hellfire issues,
and over-invested in Win-Lose means
to successfully deny
their intrinsic bad faith in the reverse of evolution.

Those who defer to WinWin evolution
mutual good faith polycultural expectations,

Those who defer to Win-Lose
anger and fear management
through self-perpetuating postponement
of Win-Win commitment.

Those yet to eventually succumb
to denying Lose egocentric body,
then Lose anthro-centric mind,
then Lose ecological multigenerational
DNA-enscribed cooperatively organized Soul,
organic meaning,
synergetic purpose,
sacred vocation,
restoring sacred ecological climates,

Lose reforesting evolutionary Win-Win history,
reweaving spiraling 4D RealPrime

Stuck back in pre-history,
before traumatizing others
became a Golden Rule offense
against all WindNature-WaveSpirits.

If we were to win
all our anthro-centric capital-hoarding games,
we would lose our ego-centric
Win-Win revolutionary
NonZero-Sum Infinite
PolyPathic Soul.




What Might Be Seen

greets sacred promise
for restoring peaceful justice.

Omnipresent predication
greets polypathic promise
for restoring love as grace-filling justice.

Omnipotently disintegrative powers
of HellFire prediction
too quickly settle for monoculturing retribution,
due to FallenNature’s past spiritual sins
in absence of paid-forward
gift economies
for notnot co-arising
Sacred Win-Win Grace.

This monoculturing
monotheistic Win-Lose path
is littered with remains,
fossils for patriarchal still-burning altars
and nuclear domestic ballistic economies
of traumatic retribution
rather than therapeutic salvation.

Even before nature-spirit polytheists emerged,
First RNA Nation Trees
within continental forests
held seasonal Earth renewal ceremonies,
water baptism healing circles,
cooperative nutrition networks.

Original forest societies
creolized healthy soil and air and water
rather than colonizing frontiers
with monoculturing missionary zeal
of empire-building vines and weeds
staging a violent strangling coupe
producing degenerative global outcomes.

Trees do not need,
or benefit from,
Fake-Messianic entitlements
to own appropriated property for a good public cause,
to enslave for a just war,
to exploit for a better financial return,
to colonize for greater nation-state empowerment,
to piratize the poor on behalf of the Pharisees,
to vanquish and destroy
Earth’s indigenous sacred wisdom.

A Nationalistic Manifest Destiny
not informed by natural-spiritual forest wisdom,
cannot be truthfully called
a Sacred Manifest Destiny
for all living residents.

Our continental
and trans-continental histories
of LeftBrain conquest
are also herstories
of RightBrain creolization,
of cooperative interrelationship understories,
of EarthCentric giving back integrity of ownership
to cooperatively invest
less in competitive EmpireBuilding,
Yang Triumphant Wealth
of YinForest sacred virgin oppression.

Nationalistic flags do not wave
for deep matriotic relationships
within and among forests.
Patriotic flags
are for naming and claiming,
for blaming and shaming Other’s flagging lack
of uniform patriotic competing relationships.

What Patriarchs
have claimed for HolyEmpire’s Manifest Destiny,
MatrioticForests resonate
with HolyPromised Land
already here
before RedCoats
lost to Blue and Grey UnCivil Commodification Coats
on our way toward military-industrialized camouflage
uniformly dissonant chaos
covering up fake-patriotic absence of integrity.

Purist WhiteHats and SupremacistCoats
waving flags of ownership
while killing native health
of older and wiser forests.

We renamed our sacred forest spirits
after mortal colonizers
with violently protected self-manifest destinies
giving themselves legal rights,
so remarkably generous!
to blow up natural-spiritual interdependence
in just a few degenerative decades,
denuding any sacred signs
of our humane-divine
extending family sacred interrelationships.

Green pastures and healthy waters
of supremacist patriotic destiny
are threatened by natural-spiritual deep relationship
now learning our humane-divine
left-right sacred balancing place.

Sensing LeftBrain entitlement
is no reasonable substitute
for RightBrain sacred authority,
to not degenerate Earth’s forests
and polluted oceans.

Democratic rights
and publicly agreed Constitutional wrongs
are on behalf of
cooperative sacred Welfare
of all enlightened resident Tribes and Species,
prohibiting rights to kill
as ballistic wrongs,
violently self-sadistic,

Far from actively seeking restorative EarthPeace
and True-Messiah CoRedemptive Justice.


Beasts of Burden

like hidden facts,
are latent
rather than complementary
when suppressed and repressed by society,
that ecopolitical beast of enculturation’s burden.

Glass ceilings,
like lowest denominator floors,
are hidden
rather than mutually transcendent
when oppression
is justified by sacrosanct tradition.

like byzantine networks,
rather than lead to resolutions
when pressed upon
those at home on other paths.

like humor,
remains opaque
when impressed with its own hubris.
hoary beast of history’s exegetical burden.


Cultures Healthy and Pathological

It seems easier to do good
and live healthy
if you live in a democratically robust
and multiculturally resonant society.

For the same reasons
it’s much easier to bring oneself harm
and slowly disintegrate into isolating despair
when you live in a capitalistic patriarchal
competing rights make monoculturing might
anthro-centric supremacist society.

EarthRights denied,
also denies internal climate health
as multicultural sacramental wealth.


Sacred Calculations

I wouldn’t want you to walk away
with any miscalculations about me.

I am about as wild and crazy as society will allow
without confinement for my own protection.

Whenever I read a self-marketing sign

Please Help…
Vacancies of home and stomach,
Needing to be filled.

I feed the bearers of these signs
of society’s emargination
into raw and naked
erase and start again.

When I notice long-haired grunge,
low-budget gypsys with backpacks and shopping carts,
heading toward me asking to become excused
for asking for things they need,
I head in their direction
to find our best redirection

My husband begrudges every dime
and points out I’m too wild
for pouring mostly alcohol
or worse down throats
without a home.
He claims they’re addicted suicides
waiting for death’s embrace.

But, I say this is too often true
and who am I to judge
those who explore doing their best
of worst available options
given all their dark stuff come before
through self-medication
mixed with sheltered soups
and public kitchens?

Were I or he on that street
rejected by our own history of defeat
I would hope to find those wise enough to stay
with me long enough
to help medicate my way,
to suffer with my emptiness
and ask me please to stay,
tell them all my blues,
sing and dance this suffering away.

I’m retired.
Have more cash than I could ever need,
and don’t want to go out that way,
hoarding funds for those who already have too much
while somewhere out there stands
a homeless sign whose bearer
prefers to drink her lunch.

If our legacy composes
both what we do for love
and what we do not do from fear,
If both our action and omissions,
our positives and negatives,
remain behind to feed and haunt our kids,
then why would I not choose
to offer medicines of caring
when neglect is so clearly that of which
this homelessness was made.


Maturing Up Together

When you hear justice
do you also listen for responsive mercy?
Or are you more likely to feel merciless revenge
against uncivilized behavior
swelling vibrant adrenaline
baptizing your self-righteous bloodstream?

If revenge is your best defense
against chaotic complexities of anti-social behavior,
If punitive humiliation is this justice you would mentor,
live by,
then you will be an often disappointed,
and disappointingly ineffective,
and would best stay far away
from anything in law enforcement
and civil defense,
and gun permits.

Advocates and defenders of justice for all
are deep lovers of intentions and behaviors
positive humored
seeking their notnot negative unbalancing
of empty cleansing rituals including Society’s ecopolitical liturgies,
obsessive-compulsive demoralizing ruminations,
ramblings and echoes of great and small climatic transitions
quaking Earth’s moral imagination
steeped in Anthro cultures and histories,
kind and not-unkind.

Justice without mercy
is like reactivating love without peace,
like trying to actually mentor love
without internal and interdependent contentment
that we are in this life together,
all both guilty and innocent of most everything one might imagine,
until we fall apart
to reweave yet another new day,
with notnot strictured Elder shadows,
mercifully thrown together
as not-not fully grown regenerates.
