Make America:

Does
Make America Great Again

Also mean
Make America Straight Again?

How about
Make America White Again?

Maybe
Make America
AntiFeminist Again?

Another possibility,
Make America
Christian Evangelical Supremacist
Again?

And,
more elaborately,
Make America
Business As Usual
Patriarchal/Capitalist
Autonomously Empowered
and Exclusively Enlightened
Again?

GREATness
is soooooooo much more
morally ambiguous
than public HEALTH
and global climate SAFEty.

I would feel so relieved
if my RedRight friends
and family
would patriotically fly
and pleasantly post
Make America Healthy Again
banners,
hats,
bumper stickers,
condoms,
masks,

And MAHA foreign
and domestic
green policy statements.

When CoEmpathic

When I feel compassion
with my positive needs
for love
health
trust
safety,

When I feel compassion
for my negative fears
wounds
negative fortress wants
to overpower perceived threats
against my egocentric compromises
with ruthless capitalism,
soulless patriarchalism,
strategic genocide,
extractive ecocide,
smug and heartless anthrosupremacy,
aggressively diseased LeftBrain dominance
inside my ruminating self
as schizophrenically viral
outside Those Evil People
voices
without kind choices,

When I feel compassion
with my healthy integral potential
and for my pathological capacity
to do more harm
to further wound EarthTribal consciousness
to militarize my fearmongering
and angry repressive words,

When I feel compassion
as the guy who loves listening
to friends and family
excited about our multigenerational attachments
to multicolored
and fabulously gay designed
and exotically sexy fragrant flowers

Is also the coempathizing guy
who shares DNA
and bicameral neurosystemic flow structures
with Vladimir Putin
and those who voted for him,
with Adolph Hitler
and those who voted for him,
Donald Trump
and those who voted for him,
Mitch McConnell
and those who voted for his Party,
and possibly even Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene,
and those Georgians who voted for her
bad blond self-image

Which is decidedly not Green
in any feminist compassionate
organically cooperative
and co-empathically engaged way,
and means to truth
and healthy resilient life

Maybe,
as I have sometimes whispered,
not-green Greene is a toxic infestment
machine
planted by an alien aryan planet

When I feel compassion
what do I need?
want?
crave?

CoEmpathic cooperation
and healthy co-investment,
experiences of win/win strategic game playing,
celebrating our resonant
positive
social neurological systems
for restorative health
for cooperative
long-term
EarthTribe safety.

When I feel compassion
for my engaged side
AND my dark and ominous potential
to fail in my own indigenous
humane
natural/spiritual development potential,

Then I can at least laugh
with my own creative conspiracy theories
and against my own tragic Earth-destructive
Mutually Assured Destruction,
MADness that might take out humanity

Or,
even worse,
eradicate Earth’s wild
and domesticated flowers.

Healthy Compassion Parties

I am deeply concerned,
worried,
anxious
that We The Humane Healthy People
need to calmly
and firmly say:

The Republican NATIONAL Party
no longer supports:
Public Health,
Mental/Spiritual Health,
Planetary Climate Health,
Cognitive/Emotive Integrity
Resilient Economic Wealth
Healthy Democracy.

A therapeutic
redemptive revival
of a trusted
true
and patriotic
Grand Old MultiCultural Party
requires pruning back through historic
toxicity
to the Eisenhower administration
channeling the Lincolnesque longing
for a more civil discourse
between those who are enslaved,
those who feel economically
and politically oppressed,
between loyal adversaries
sure of a United State of commitment
to public wellbeing,
green environmental and economic prosperity,
empowering profoundly co-empathic public health
and conservational safety.

My own Michigan
white privileged
homophobic
evangelical ChosenPeople
monotheistic father
never would have voted for a Hillary Clinton,

And he never would have voted for a Donald Trump
because of Anti-Christian vainglorious pride
in having no experience,
including veteran experience,
defending humane health
and sacred social safety.

The RNC owes We
The MultiCultural Democratic People
an apology
and reparations,

A therapeutic
bipartisan peace plan
for national resilience,
for global green health,
and for ecological-economic safety,
sanity,
EarthResonant security.

The DT Blues

Not so dear DT:

Many voices have avoided asking you
obviously challenging questions,

Like, “Why?”

I have a different
but related choice question:

Ten years from 2020 revision,
would you rather be dead
or a silently cancelled mystery
rightly left behind
by a more resilient
blood red
healthier EarthClimate
history?

This is my rightful
red-blooded
Earth patriotic question
for not only unjust you.

The entirely apartisan U.S. Senate
comes immediately to what’s left
of my right mind,

Especially those egregiously unclean
unrepentantly ungreen,
which seems to clearly exclude
no one
from blue penitence
seeking more red hot hope
for ecological salvation.

Better off already dead?
Or still breathing
but more left living behind,
out of over-invested
nemesis light?

Why, AntiUncle Samson,
Why?

What in degenerative
dogmatic Hell
was our bad trip all about?

The journey toward forgiveness
is a long one,
short on patience,
bankrupt
for culpable slack,
publicly mediated lack
of green clean curiosity.

Redemption begins with:
Hi. I am DeToxifying Donald.
I am part political fascist
and part economic fool.

I’m sorry.

Let me make reparations
by donating what little is left,
not yet self-righteously destroyed,
to Earth’s Feminist Future Gardeners
already permaculturing peace.

Then, cancelling
my monoculturing
“DT right is only red”
brand,
I choose to disappear
into a transgender nunnery
to clean ungilded toilets

To clean the pots
we marginally pee in
for myself
by myself
swiftly cancelled
by unplanned climate change
like everyone else.

Trumpian Weeds

If my Trumpian weed patch could talk
I’m sure he would say
it’s past time to capitalize our stay

“We’re taking over,
spreading out,
patriotically proud of blatant
rather than tribally latent
monocultural colonizing intent
to deculture
corrupt
win/lose zero-sum compete
from straight white patriarchal strength
to punish ecofeminists,
to violently revenge
exploit
disempower sacred
unenlightened polypathic grace;

Not just our practice,
but our unpeaceful
LeftBrain dominant
reductive
divisive
straight white Trumpian
patriarch-privileged policy
against global wealth
of democratic health.”

Imagine our healthiest ecosystemic experience
could respond
with LeftBrain empowering
enlightened words
and memes
and re-connecting memories:

“We cherish you
as and where you breathe
and root
and flower right now
in this robust polycultural intent
of our own organic lifetime
blue/green cooperative
outside/inside
above/below
sacred/secular
light/power
Heaven/Earth healthcare system.

As for your TrumpWeed internal fear
and external anger voices
for aggressive win/lose practiced choices,
try to channel
and co-invest in Gandhi
and MLK, Jr
and nonviolent EarthMother more,
if you would expand our creolizing,
not colonizing, mission
to do your economic ecological
and political win/win share
to Make Earth Healthy
Wealth Again.”

If my Trumpian weed patch could respond
I’m sure we would say
it’s past time to re-invest
in our healthiest resilient
cooperatively governed stay
to win/win play
all eudaemonia purposive day
and hedonia seeding night.

BlackTaoism v WhiteFascism

Taoism
is about LeftBrain Win/Lose Yang
when divorced from Win/Win Yintegrity

And also about
Yang/Yintegrity
Ego/EcoSystemic
bicameral
multiculturally Green
democratic Win/Win
BiPartisan Communion

Taoism
is about Yang personal experience
of feeling self-satisfied,
healthy EgoCentering

And also about further Yintegrity needs,
ecosystemic challenges
for resiliently optimizing wealthy EarthComPassion,
global climate polycultural
health/wealth resonance.

Taoism
is about Yang’s non-violent communication
remembering past win/win health/wealth values
resonantly felt Truth
and democratic TribalTrust;
multicultural memories
of matriarchal ego-personal experience

And also
about Yintegrally holistic needs
to nurture compassionate
co-empathic multicultural communion,
singing gospel folk dances,
green indigenous eco-communication
re-imaging future win/win wealth resilient
LeftBrain win/lose dominant challenges

Against,
disassociated competitions in-between
cognitive Left/Right affective dissonance
wounding
degenerating Earth’s monoculturing
nationalistic
bipolarizing ecopolitical red climates
of StraightWhite Western
military violent
capitalistic RightWing narcissism.

Taoism
is about why all Earth life-systemic
organic cultures
ask Great Green EcoTransitional Questions

About Yang’s past Change experience
divorced from Yin;
unfettered self-satisfied narcissism
natural/spiritual pathology,
Anti-Yintegral’s Green Communion feelings,
persistent addictions to fear and anger
about LeftBrain monocultural supremacy’s emergent history
predicting BusinessAsUsual
EarthExtractive

New MLK Day Revolutions

I have heard almost nothing about New Year Resolutions
this pandemic year;

Although personal sound waves are filled
replete with incomplete invitations
to take better health care
of personal
and social
and economic
and democratic
and public
and green climate nonviolent communication
wealth optimization

As we move post-millennially
and relentlessly,
perhaps as inevitably
as any self-fulfilling NewYear resolute expectation,
standing win/win apart
from ambiguous anticipation thoughts
with anxious feelings,
foreboding fore-tidings,
Right/Left
affective/cognitive dissonance;
fading resonance.

I have,
in this last pre-MLK week,
noticed an upsurge in human striving voices
invoking dark,
globally embarrassing, humor
and gratitude
for President BullHorn
for straight white male persuading
large majorities of Earth’s citizens,
red and green and yellow and orange,
black and mostly white patriarchally privileged
LeftBrain violently red dominant
RightWing wounded and terrifying,

To NewYear discontinue an elitist direction
we don’t want to continue pursuing,
extracting without explicitly agreeing
to democratically forego our constitutional commitment
to a healthy resilient multicultural republic
both polyculturally healthy and safe
for now,
and for all foreseeable future regenerations.

Many 2020s new year roaring revolution voices
seem to assume liberal v conservative choices
are limited to:
If one is good
then the other is bad,
opposites;

Appositionally,
demonstrably,
comparatively,
even consensually,
recognized as not true to personal
politically co-invested democratic experience
when we are discussing liberally loving
healthy
cooperative communication
and conservatively co-investing
in globally resilient public health
and climate WholeEarth safety.

Liberal left wings
and conservation right winged,
and all of us who faithfully remain
middling muddling in-between,
resolve closer to consensually green healing
than viral and climatic punishing pandemics,
ego-inside and eco-outside
our bilaterally integral sensory bodies,

We are
and often are not
re-transitionally resolved
for personal health
and/or public ecopolitical safety
sacredly cooperative Vocations.

When I feel healthiest and safest,
in this another new year,
in this early decade of Roaring BullHorn 20s,
is when I step outside
to listen for voices
of disenfranchised trees,
scolding squirrels,
babbling brooks,
rippling rivers,
surfing seas,
light conversations
between blue sky and cirrus clouds,
rain on rocks and rolling thunder
anthems

Sung in response to my questions
about what is healthy liberal YangLight
and conservative YintegrityPower?

And what is more Trumpian
nationalist
elitist Republican
pathological would-be autocratic fascism,
worship of richly narcissistic wounded
persons of exorbitant interest,
punishing power,
uninformed dissonant delusions,

Where StraightWhiteMale privileged
capitalist corporate minds
have falsely advertised resilient
and resonant bicameral fortunes
toward nationalistic
militaristic extractive wealth,
not so much durably thriving health
and safety through defensive win/lose strategies
strong pro-active
non-connective
violent colonizing aggressions
for mutual lose/lose
predator/prey assured destruction.

Sometimes Earth’s January voices
seem to predict
and celebrate
full climaxing
resiliently thriving healthy wealth.

Sometimes they warn of wounded and broken
personal and public,
social and political
and economic monocultural
non-MLK celebratory pathology.

But,
most of this NewYear resolving time,
especially when I’m working on MLK-Era
Revolutionary Green Resolutions
for restoring Ego/Earth-balancing Justice,
and WholeEarth Multiculturing Peace,
these nature/spirit,
inside/outside,
ego/eco-voices ignore my quests for wise discernment
because egocentric questions,
provided by past memories and future imagination,
are unworthy of macro-ecosystemic attention.

If the only choice I offer is:
“Should I live in a toxic,
fossil-fuel burning condo
or in a toxic,
fuel-burning trailer park?”

Why would such ancient god and goddess voices
and smells,
sounds and senses,
respond to these unintended wounds
and win/lose competitive broken messes?

Asking for less than wisdom
to always resolve win/win
revolutionary green new era decades
inviting questions and resolutions
exploring
remembering future images
of liberally conserving celebrations.

Grand Old Trump Party

President Trump,
shortly after his singularly smelly election,
declared emphatic comparisons with Elder Republican
Abraham Lincoln.

Early on,
he described Lincoln as his kindred political soul,
admired mentor,
and the former President he was destined to most resemble
in spirit and success;

Presumably not including assassination
causing an abrupt end to his second term in office,
won by a landslide–
even if mainly because the ancestors of many Trump loyalists
were not in a northern political position to vote that year.

More recently,
President Trump,
not one to drop names of people who don’t actually exist
outside his own narcissistic imagination,
relayed the uninvited twitter message,
People tell him,
apparently hoping for the privacy of anonymity,
that he is already the greatest Republican President
in US history,
including Abraham Lincoln,

Who would be so supportive of Trumpian caging of children,
supportive of DT’s mockery
of women,
of people with disabilities,
of those homeless,
of people poor,
criminalized
traumatized by violence…
The list goes on in a remarkably non-Lincolnesque
non-spiritual
unChristian
snarky kind of way.

I imagine the President has heard Lincoln’s observation about trust
so necessary for even a quasi-healthy democracy,

“You can fool all the people
some of the time,
and some of the people
all the time,
but you can’t fool all the people
all the time.”

President Trump isn’t known for being a reader
outside consuming twitter posts
and Fox non-news banners,
but it seems he might have heard,
possibly read,
this Lincoln proverb as a challenge,
or just went with optimizing the promise that he could fool some people
all the time–
good enough for government work.

President Trump made it clear,
even before his Inauguration Day,
that only those people who could appreciate the splendorous beauty
of his naked narcissistic garments and greed would:

  1. get to heaven,
  2. become TrumpMedia empowered
    to hate multiculturally resilient democratic constitutions
    and healthy co-governance systems.

Speaking of aphorisms,
this night of January 6th,
my ecosystemic soul bows to the post-full moonlight
remembering,
“It is always darkest just before dawn.”

I grab onto this hope,
but then realize
Whoever knows this to be true from experience
could only speak this with reassurance
after the first hint of emergent light to the East,
source of sacred light
and EarthlyPower.

Is this as dark as fragile democracy
and patriotic civility must fail
this self-governing experiment?

I can’t quite yet see an Eastern sky of fading stars
although I would love to be vision corrected,
perfected to see light and power
in this climatic polarized time
of win/lose ecopolitical rabidity,
eating our children’s future,
wasting their water
and formerly fertile soil,
and decimating shading fruitful trees.

I can imagine a darker hour.

I can imagine my children
speaking with their grandchildren
about now vanquished land and water mammals,
the improbable kangaroo
and porcupine
and skunk

About former forests of mature trees,
huge plants
strong rooted
and reaching up
and out
much taller than the tallest remaining human;
now aging memories of neighbors lost forever.

Earth’s elder democratic,
healthy,
polycultural,
living biosystems might well survive
our species,

The only one that appears motivated to elect leaders
invested in fooling all the people
all the time,
of ignoring the rights and pleasures,
truths and beauty
of all “lesser” species
and “weaker” people,
now reduced to natural commodities
throughout Earth’s darkest hours.

Violence Separates Us

My senior minister just now
pointed out and in toward Washington
aware of this extraordinary Time.

Violence separates us
from the ordinary
every time,
she speaks from her own experience.

I quickly agree.

Then, notice ways I do not agree
if violence denotes
feelings of violation.

Violence does not separate military time
from ordinary civilian time;
we call that chronic stress disorder,
mental problems,
spiritual issues,
weaponized opposition.

Violence does not separate
poor people
marginalized people
ignored, neglected, and abused species,
animals,
trees,
rivers,
oceans,
soil,
air,
Earth,
from ordinary
Business As Usual Time.

This statement reminds me
of two opposing experiences
in my own life,
white privilege,
where violence is what happens to other people,
and gay male child,
all growed up in a homo-hate environment,
where ordinary violence was about what I deserved
if I were caught
being me.

We want violence to be the exception
to cooperative economics,
nonviolent communication,
restorative EarthJustice politics,
empowerment,
enlightenment experiences
of multicultural healthy wealth,
for all EarthCreatures
and living ecosystems.

Still,
on this dark night
it feels hard to painfully remember
that violence is more exceptional
to ordinary experience
for some Haves
as compared to HaveNots.

Earth’s Needed Victory

Yes, President Trump,
“Our Country needs a victory!”

On this,
we are all multi-party agreed.

Some of us recognize
the only direct route to this national success,
economic and political and social and cultural,
is united in our stated urgency,
“Our Earth needs a health victory!”

Others don’t.
And you would distract us
with your confused world view,
in which the boundary between your own ego
and our shared national
and planetary ecosystems
are too pathologically fuzzy
to meet even the minimal standards
of Reality TV.

Wiser leaders
have learned to be silent
and go on quiet retreat
when such serious personality disorders
rear their unfortunate
undemocratic capitalistic
straight white patriarchal
supremacist heads.
