Ecology of Revolution

I remember
a young child in Sunday School
wondering what Jesus meant
when he said,
I have come out

into Earth’s narrative
to turn Her upside down.

How could this be true,
when he also taught that those who receive more
will get more,
and vice versa;
less worthy grace
for less valued face.

This didn’t sound right,
yet it did seem exciting,
Like something to hope for
even though Jesus didn’t really get the job done,
or at least not here
where I was
and not now
when I am.

It has taken a lifetime
of wondering about that curious and courageous,
audacious and admonishing claim
to realize Earth’s nutritional narrative
isn’t about turning planets
or people
spatially upside down,

But is all about returning Earth temporally inside out,
back forth
reverse forward,
principles for reverting revolutions.

For example,
Indigenous wisdom understood
we are here as one people,
one sacred Tribe,
to serve the health needs
and wealth wants
of EarthMother.

Just as Western patriarchal capitalism misunderstands
Earth is here
as our anthropocentric commodity,
one secular planet
to excavate
exploit
extract
rape
enslave
colonize
market
discount
clearance sale
to sever Her health needs
from our capital-hoarding wealth wants
before She inevitably dies.

What Jesus calls upside down
and inside out,
Laotse’s listeners call
a Principle of Reversion
back to when Yin induced Yang
so Yang would compassionately deduce Yin’s love
for humane wealth Truth
serving Earth’s health-revolutionary Beauty,

With much more cooperative economic outcomes
than leftbrain dominant competitive political incomes.

Nothing Is Not Lost

Hear unsilenced hope here,
Nothing is not lost.

Hopelessness is the enemy
of justice.

Music resounds appositionally
against fear.

Anthems rise solidarity
within eco-righteous anger.

Praise conserves liberal motion.

Emotion co-arises dipolar cognitive/affective passions.

Climate pathology may not become
the responsibility of white privilege.
Yet, healthy climates may heal
both our oppression of Earth’s sacred integrity
and our white privileged victimizations.

Wealthy multicultural opportunities
re-present risks for and of further monoculturing fragmentation
apartheid
disassociations
conserving silos
of hopelessly unfree silence.

This is our liberal conserving health agenda,
Earth wealth
cooperatively inclusive,
interdependently webbed.

We know we are conservatively listening win/win leaders
when liberally correct agendas
are also Earth-centered conservational anthems
singing courageous praise
against the fake win/lose face
of either totalitarian power
or universal fear.

Active hope
is the ally
of Earth’s great restoring justice
for all,
they and we
eco and ego
yin and yang
universal health and unitarian wealth.

If all faith speaks with liberal political correctness,
so too
all hope erupts from silent win/win conserving power
noticing risks of disempowering silence
missing opportunities for re-empowering healthy natural wealth
between all souls
among all soils
all fearful angry lynching
all courageous songs unflinching.

Music heals through wind and water carried
keening
secular mundane hate
become sacred epic texts
re-formed ego-wind with eco-water
singing unsilenced sorrow.

Hear hope here.
Nothing is not lost
through complacent silence.

 

Note: The latter portion of this piece is in conversation with “Invocation” by Elizabeth Alexander.

Resonant Judgments

I would not judge someone
and then some dreadful thing
or some nasty place
or some too distant time.

Let me, instead,
invite judgment from
that one relationship in real spacetime,

Until we each and all resiliently find
what we need
and want
for healthy wealth co-acclimation

Open,
free of negative judgments against,
free to
and for cooperatively changing transubstantiation
known and felt
into warm seasoned creolicizanation
for solidarity
of resilient vulcanintegrationalization,
intra-
and inter-nations.

I would instead be judged in wealthy favor
by some singing simpler one,
healthier flavored for some wavey-swinging hyphenated thing,
abundantly resonant for some pleasantly compliant place,
rooted in solid resilience
for 4D mind-maps left multiculturing race
and emotive time’s
right mind
rhythm seasoned grace
pace of timeless space

Let us inside trade instead,
invite outside gratitude from,
that one perennially cooperative nutritional relationship
in real bilaterally timed Earth space,
timeless intrapersonal place,
humane-divinely transpiring
turning
twisting
twirling
teasing
untruncating grace.

Passion Time

Within the beginning
was compassionate Time.

And Time grew self-regenerating Space,
mindful Bodies,
revolving Earth,
evolving EarthTribe
emerged without image-able eternity,

Without freedom from ego mortality;
With freedom to re-image, re-link eco-reality
passion stories,
from Time
to Time.

Universal Alpha then, becoming Integral Omega now,
without, now within memory,
Earth down, co-arising Heaven up,
near, seduced from afar,
repeating breath, from resilient light,
Left, from WiseElder Right,
Deduction, remembering bilateral Health/Wealth Inducements,
Compassion, empathic Passion, recreative
without narcissistic DisPassion,
degenerative, growing regenerations of co-passionate Time.

Compassion’s Silent ReCreations

Who or what created interdependent you?
Earth revolutionary love relationships
of ego/eco-passion.

Who, what created copassionate Earth?
Wave revolution of co-gravitating nutritious Time.

Who, what created co-arising Time?
CoPassioning Space,
measured in sacred Earth revolutions
co-revolving tipping points,
Prime ZeroPassion interdependence,
ultra-non-violet pre-generativity,
enthymematic synergy,
potential for health integrity,
universal holistic compassion
flowing silent curiosity to ask

Who or what had matriarchal compassionate courage
to create and develop non-narcissistic You?
For and from all Earth’s copassionate timeless Time

Beginning’s Thankful End

He spoke in words and silent grace
of light between dark dissonant disgrace,
angry fearful place
flying through anti-space.

She writes dances
to this ending day
in enlightening worded rhythms
revolutions erupting from deep frightening evolutions
starkly silent–
anti-historic fiction friction

What will they responsibly say together
through each empowered daily doing?

What do we pray
between listening
to light of darkness, revolting
words between co-dependent conspiracy of silence?

Why does light speak health?
How could kind words invite love?
While dark ignorance breeds hate
and politically correct silent corrections
feed violent conspiring fear
of punishing injustice
headed Ego’s RightWing irresponsible way.

S/he writes enlightening words
and acts with loyal courage
despite darkly silent soul.

S/he flies bionic responsive light
and swims through ionic balancing words,
runs erotic dark rhythms of EarthSoul’s ecology
teaching exotic silence–
theologically resonant reiterating recycles
reweaving natural light with spiritual word–
binomial relational traces.

S/he speaks responsively
in words and silent co-inspiring grace
of grateful light
despite dark dissonant disgrace.

Opposite Day

It’s Opposite Game day
says JayJay
to on-screen enthusiastic friends.

I have no adult time or patience
to see or hear
right as not not opposition wrong

Right, like left,
only appositionally spaced
like I have timeless time
for western this nor eastern that.

If God or Goddess is inside everywhere
with us on our voyage stuckness outside nowhere,
both here and there
then yet not just there
nor merely here.

Just as the opposite of empty secular time
is no sacred time and, yes, eternal timelessness

I wonder why white black
appears greyscale to daytime me
while black white feels ultra-violet bright
at night.

Something could not be right
about left experience of love as life
inexperienced
as dusty death.

All Earth feels full with resonant music
and sky voided silent empty resilience
brittle as a frozen drum
without a ballistic stick
of thunder opposing lightning

It might be true
opposites of dance
are static non-moments
for sterile decay
stagnant non-being
remaining lifeless,
abandoned by courageous hope
to dance once more

And yet I wonder
why opposite of no yes
says “not yet”
while tension between yes no
waits for a double-binding second “no”
to also produce relentless ambiguity
of not not yet.

The opposite of yet
what and whom and why could past become
if we could just get
not not yet
as a sure bet
for outside climate health
and not inside bitter weathered pathology?

From left against right
day recovering night
not not wrong
silence predicting not not adventurous theme songs
oppositionally inappropriate
for Jay Jay’s dancing apposition daze.
