Clumsy Cousins

I wonder if THC
and our Holy Cooperative Spirit
could be cousins
like Grandmother Moon
and Grandmother Tree.

Why do you want to wonder
about something as curious as that,
dear?

Oh, I don’t recall, really.
It just came up in conversation a few minutes ago.

Honey,
your breakfast is still a figment of your hopeful imagination,
so who on Earth were you conversing with a few minutes ago?

I was in the backyard
talking with the trees,
and the extended family question just came up.

Honey,
when you take your morning meds,
and then go out to your sit spot
and talk to the trees…

Yes?

Would you do me a favor?

What’s that?

Would you listen more,
and invoke curses against climate hate-mongerers
and malingerers
less?
You scare our more pedestrian neighbors.

But I was listening.
The trees were talking
in their windbown surfing voices
of autumn colored breeze
swaying like Green Fairy SkyWoman

Blessing each falling leaf
spinning tales
revolving moral compasses
drifting from win to lose
coming to rest where they first gave birth,

Blessed by Grandmother Moon’s ultra-violet rhythms
lights
and dual dark dilemmas,
mystery,
everyday awe
expecting sacred wonder.

Oh, well then,
I was wondering why you were so quiet out there…
So, what’s your plan for today?

I thought I might plant more trees.

Want some company?

If we both listen more,
and ask impatient questions less.

Planting already faithful saplings
or merely hopeful seeds
of co-relationship?

Depends on how long we care to be remembered
for our civil kindness,
green cooperative intent,
revolutionary winning trees and winning people values
norms
voices natural and spiritual
bilaterally spinning democratic energy,
healthy merits and unhealthy demerits,
regenerative plantings more than degenerate uprootings,
climate health supplanting wealth of disease,
unease,
dissonant disassociating trees.

Dearest,
I’m having trouble following some of your connections.
Do you think that’s the THC
or Holy Cooperative Spirit whispering?

Yes, love.

Green Brownies with Red Wine

Said THC to Alcohol,
A political difference I find between us,
I am more RightBrain cooperative exhibitionist
and you more LeftBrain inhibitor.

Which implies, Alcohol sneers,
you more holier holonic
than LeftBrain EgoThou?

Only to EitherOrthodox
or kill it
Thou,
smiles THC,
To me this feels more polyculturing fun
to play with words polyphonic
restoring health-wealth of integrity
regenerating polynomial
polypaths
toward and notnot away from
equal Left/Right WinWin multiculturals.

Yes, interrupts monoculturing Alcohol,
To which no EgoThou
would dare or care to WinWin listen.
Such understudied non-dramatic nomials,
binomially co-arising,
like gentle summer winds of grace
with healthy skin gratitude
rising attitudes
playing rhyming chimes
together.

I find sacred but next morning forgotten Alcohol freedom
in absence of sustainable LeftBrain co-invested interest
through cooperative EarthTribe Good WinWin News management,
ecology of Left EitherWin OrLose
Alcohol seduced and distractedly reduced

Without THC permacultural theology
of Sacred stoned Right…
What was I saying?
I was coming up onto a tipping point…

Well, responds THC,
while deep learning
while actively marching
through 4D Real WinWin Advocacy Time,
I can see notnot winning Ego
as also notnot losing Eco
Logic of all these over-heated hater spotlights
and Earth-tremoring
paranoid-schizophrenic
rabidly overpopulating bipolar microphones
with speakers mysteriously tipping
and dynamically spiraling toward revolutionary
RightwithLeft Wing ears
with feet
relentlessly dipolar walking
toward evermore capital co-arising investment
in LeftBody RightMind co-dominance
despite my currently enhanced WinWin
lack thereof.

Oh, my great Left-Alcohol Truth
with Right-Beauty THC
WinWin synergetic love,
we should integrity speak
and potentially listen
with each other
more therapeutically often.

Yes,
at least once a green brownie with red wine year,
whether we need more cooperation
or less competition,
or notnot.

Notnot who, dear Alcohol?

Notnot either you against me
or WinWin to gather
and plant
and harvest
and ecopolitically re-evaluate
red ego’s
best green resilient options.

Exactly the colors I was seeing.

It’s a gift
we share.

Oh chemistry!

And goodnews sacred bicameral timing.

What is bicameral timing?

When journalists
act like revolutionary cooperative activists
and polycultural green activists
think like evolutionary journalists.

That’s deep…
I think I would like to sleep…

Gaia’s Curious Meadows

Queen Gaia
hopes to more resiliently return
to marijuana grazing meadows,
rather than supporting
worn-out tobacco and oil
industrial fields.

That’s what LaoTsu breathed
industrious mountains in Yang,
valley nurtured rivers flowing out
WinWin baptismal YinYin.

Whatever could that mean?

Rumor is,
about those sonnets?
Written transformed
by SolarYang outside enlightenment,
and nondual endarkenment,
to his liberated left feels West,
And incensed by EarthSoul THC
breathed in conservatively right feels Eastern
innocent dawn
from nearby smoking pot.

Ummm…
I thought there was something queer about him.
Disturbingly paradoxical.
Always on chaotic fences
about what’s natural ecology
and what’s spiritual theology,
mixing them multiculturally
and metaphysically up
and down
and across rivers
of bilaterally flowing time.

All those YangLife PositivEnergy therapeutic restorations
with Yin WinWin
notnot ZeroZone Resonance,
harmonic spiraling octaves
of double-fractal regenerative
DNA with RNA flow,
indeed.

Indeed.
Sounds a bit more like LeftBrain dominant
Tipping Pointed Bucky Fuller
than RightBrain dominant
LaoTzu
and his NorthernLIght sonnets
wu-wei
in-between
poetic licenses.

So you think the whole THC thing
is a cosmic MotherGaia hoax?

But not so much a paranoid conspiracy theory
about what some prayed
was higher divine
RightBrain deep listening inspiration.

I think
and feel
health would be Earth’s highest
and best
ZeroZone Wealth
secular ecological–Left
sacred theological–Right
Restorative Ego/Anthro/Eco Therapeutic
WinWin Resilient PolyCultural Outcomes.

I think writing outside,
compared to inside,
feels narrative
with my skinpores open,
my NorthernLight ears able to hear
most everything worthy of listening to
right WiseElder healthy now.
My nose able to smell EarthSoul wealthy fragrances.
My eyes able to see
what more nutrition importantly
unveils PositivEnergy Democracy
behind
and beyond
this Left to Right handwritten notebook
static
stale Elitist page.

LongTerm ReAssessments

Dad,
how old were you when you first tried THC?

It was not until my freshperson year
at the University of Michigan
when you could not go from one end of any dorm
to the other
without inhaling that not really oregano oily fragrance.

Why were you such a late bloomer?

As I recall,
back in premillennial times
those who were high school pot heads
were recognized by all,
including themselves,
as destined for malodorous lifetime outcomes,
if not outright sociopaths
then at least hopeless malcontents
and scofflaws
without civil redeeming value.

Really?
So how did all that play out?

We were correct
in these pessimistic predictions
at least in large part.

You don’t sound surprised,
as I so hoped you might.

Only because
those of us who waited
until we had high school graduation credentials in hand
fared about the same unremarkable neither better or worse,
certainly not rewriters of history
as far as I ever heard.
And,
although I might well be mistaken,
those who self-promote
as never having inhaled
either sooner or even much too later,
have outcomes possibly least happy of all,
except for those who also
have not found enough real food to eat
or too much booze to drink in one remorseful night.

Interesting.
I hope that is a population of zero
in my postmillennial era.

Watch out for those who deny evolution as evil.
They are those least likely to learn
from our mistakes,
thereby proving the foolishness
of their own anti-evolving theories
about traditional unchanging consciousness
and humane nature
and EarthMother’s sacred spirits,
inhaling to exhale,
reweaving nature out with nurture in.

The THC Ordinance

I am fairly new to this Norwick community.
If I recall correctly
we have about forty thousand households here
where the Connecticut River
conjoins the Mohegan and Iroquois Rivers;
originally deep rich virgin eco-forest harmonic.

So when I interviewed the Mayor,
I asked him why he wrote
the Norwick THC Family-Friendly Ordinance?
This came from nowhere.
No one from the local Democratic Party Committee
had mentioned we should soon expect to look
in this ecopolitical direction.

“Well,
the more active committee members tend to put their wallets
where their mouths and noses are currently ingesting,
if you follow?”

OK, so you were all in this together
and it didn’t occur to any of you
this might induce a national spotlight?

“No,
we thought the Norwick Ban on Alcohol Sales
to Those Under the Age of SixtyFive
would probably do that.
The THC Family-Friendly Ordinance,
What’s so unusual
about family-friendly ecopolitics?”

Well I think a critical question
from massive media markets
is where is your well researched positive outcome evidence
that THC is more family friendly
than is depressive alcohol?

“Have you tried both?”

Have you?

“OK, we can do this the long way.
If you have done both, and have a family,
then that is your primary evidence.
If you have only done THC,
then you probably wouldn’t have asked that question
and you would be wondering,
as am I,
why this is not well-reported
and academically taught
and therapeutically resourced
and economically developed
in other eco-friendly centers,
like your THC Friendly ego-eco SelfIdentity
of BiCameral Consciousness.
But, if you have only tried alcohol,
then your evidence
may be in damage to your depressed family relationships.
Now imagine only grandpas and grandmas
controlling who gets the booze in family markets,
and who does not
because young fools will drink and drive
when they can’t even balance on a bicycle!
And, if you have tried neither,
then I guess your best evidence
is to come to a Democratic Town Committee Meeting,
over at the Senior Center,
for lunch
and we’ll give ’em both a try,
but consecutively, never simultaneously,
while watching redundant Washington afternoon debates
on immigration
and taxation
and climate health v pathology
and health care giving and receiving
to see and hear what you suspect
they were drinking and not smoking
during their patriotic red meat power lunches.”

No, thanks.
You had me with the first option.

“That so.
So why did you bother to ask?”

Because that’s what I wanted to know?

“You wanted to know why we passed a THC-Friendly ordinance
yet didn’t think this was even controversial
from a public health and safety perspective?”

Well yes,
but I’m also wondering why there wasn’t even any Republican opposition.

“You’re new here,
aren’t you?”

I’ll concede that question.
So how’s it going so far?

“Well,
the police and the courts and lawyers
and maybe even the Emergency Wing
at the hospital,
and the ambulance drivers and EMTs
are feelin’ kinda bored and left behind.
Playin’ a lot of cards
and not generating the fees and fines
and insurance reimbursements
and fake non-profit donations
to the Punishing Chambers of Political Commerce.”

That doesn’t sound encouraging.

“On the other hand
the Senior Centers are filled with smokey stories about,
well…
it’s often difficult to say,
but certainly happy about WinWin nutritional outcomes,
so we don’t worry a whole lot
about the synergetic details.”

Anyone else doing better?

“Mainly the poor and suffering,
single-parent low-income households,
homeless and hungry and at-risk
building cooperatively-owned residences
and salvage
and entertainment
and renewable energy industries,
producing song and dance and rhythm
and story telling
and creation parable swelling
street opera sectors
of and for ecopolitical cooperative outcomes.
These are all deeper and wider and probably higher
than healthcare giving and receiving
prior to unanimous Town Council passage.”

So what are your thoughts
about the remaining under-employed,
restorative justice now overwhelming retributive justice,
for our medical and legal pathologist depression problems?

“We were thinking of Anger Management
ego-eco therapeutic classes
through Left and Right
as Yang and Yin
co-arising glasses.”

I worry I may know what that means.

“The reforesting police are supervising and supporting
growth of neighborhood permacultural parks and gardens.
They are also hosting organic interior and exterior wu-wei design classes,
for optimizing both ego and ecotherapies,
yoga and chi gong classes too,
some held at the schools,
from preschool through Norwick High,
and our community college and the technical high school,
and some of the Sabbath and Sunday Schools.
We now have an herbalist division
over at the hospital
that seems to pick up the slack
for their Emergency staff.
And the ambulances transport more plants than people,
seeds,
small fruit trees
for our edible reforesting projects.
It’s called finding the economic cooperative WinWin solution
within the politically bicameral competing Either/Or problem.”

How do these outcomes look for replication elsewhere?

“That would be a better question to ask elsewhere.”

So that’s how you want to end this interview,
with criticizing my culminating question?

“Sorry.
That is an excellent question,
not that you asked for my opinion,
but one I cannot answer
as I am not elsewhere
at the moment.”

Anything else I should have asked?

“Do I really want to write about
why the Mayor wrote
this Norwick THC-Friendly Ordinance?”

Oh, I did ask that question.

“And what did you hear?”

Maybe yes, LeftYang patriarchal;
Maybe notnot doublebinding no
to Lose wealth now
and Lose health later
Right matriarchal Yin.

“Hmmm…
Just enough to restore more vulnerable Tipping Points
of re-acclimating faith
in MotherEarth’s original Green Estates
for reforesting THC-DNA-RNA extended family friendly fractal alliances.”

Couldn’t have written it better myself.

The Rastafarian Town Council Meeting

Some say it began with the Jehovah’s Witnesses
ingesting sacred substances with the Rastafarians.
Others say that could not possibly be true or false.

What emerged one sultry August Town Council evening
when half the town had found some sleep:

We believe that direct and indirect health outcomes
derived from use of marijuana
are more family and community-friendly
than use of alcohol producing more pathological outcomes;
and that our economic and political policies
and procedures in public affairs,
as in private,
should reflect this shared sacred ecological belief.

Further, because we find little outcome evidence that consumption of THC
is less healthy and more pathological than ingesting alcohol,
and because we find bucket lists of evidence that THC can have therapeutic and far less addictive pathological outcomes than alcoholic beverage consumption,
we find it ecopolitically curious
that regulatory and legal support evinces more tolerance of alcohol Business as Usual
than THC busyness as sometimes unusual.

Such disparity of regulations and legal posturing
appear to suffer from Constitutional Rights Defiance Disorder,
as we compassionately expect our public sector and structures
to positively support what evinces health,
happiness,
and cooperative prosperity for all,
rather than their suppression,
making depressants more accessible than known
ecologically organic regenerative substances,
to toast the less organic degeneratively pathological substance,
which, in excess, is a poison causing death,
as compared to a more biotherapeutic holistic medicine
that has much longer,
and more spiritually,
withstood and contemplated tests of flowing nutritional time.

I cannot say from where this proposal came
but I can report why the Council passed the pipe to think about
what they could say that might fit with their own experience.

Most people learn most and best from personal experience,
we figured,
especially if we have a chance to reflect together on those experiences,
which we might choose to do right now.

Most people’s attitudes and feelings and beliefs
about health v pathology are influenced most by their own experience,
including the intake of substances,
like foods we eat,
and like or don’t prefer,
like beverages we drink and like or don’t,
and prefer nutritionally and tastefully,
like sensory outcomes of drinking alcohol and inhaling THC.

Most Business As Usual fundamentalists,
especially of the Christian and Islamic varieties,
believe alcohol is more or less not health viable
for beneficial ecopolitical outcomes,
as perhaps more favorably compared to THC.
However, most Christian and Islamic fundamentalists
do not have personal experience of either,
nor do they tend to share within families and communities
likely to learn from others’ experiential wisdoms
extending out to broader families and friends of friends.

Sadly, up to this PostMillennial time,
where there have been exceptions to such dually undiagnostic abstinence,
these have been on the side of not-quite-so evangelical cocktails.

Had we sooner leaned the other way,
inhaling THC
then talking about cooperative ecopolitically healthy outcomes
while exhaling,
well, then,
we might begin warming toward each other
and those still outside our monocultural religious walls
of self-protectionism.

As it is,
our spiritual and divine aspirations suffer
from lack of connection with our Eros-loving bodies
and lack of ecologically cooperative empowering WinWin thinking,
and ecotherapeutic climate building,
as in the newer testament gospels for community development,
transubstantiations,
transliterations,
and like those polypathic potheads over at the UU and Zen Center,
and don’t even get us started
on how much fun we had with the Rastafarian Warrior Witnesses.
