DisEmpowering The Virus

I am struggling
to avoid that “I told you so”
mean
and self-congratulatory voice.

I do feel under-appreciated
but I don’t feel any happiness
about the Virus
as vindicator of my beliefs
about the political and economic power
of public health and safety platforms,
which are also personal wealth
and fundamental security
authentic democratic health agendas.

Yesterday I went to Aldis.
I expected no hand sanitizer
but I did not have a clue
why the half-row of steel display racks
was as vacant of toilet paper
as health clinics were full
to over-stuffed with people
not suffering from diarrhea.

I expected the atmosphere
and congestion
to remind me of grocery shopping
the afternoon before a snow storm prediction.

Our mostly polite congestion was familiar
but our mutually quarantined
atmosphere of anxiety
about touching
about breathing
about coughing
and don’t even think about sneezing!
was alarming.

I found myself singing old hymns
mostly under my breath,.
Day By Day
and with each passing moment
strength I find
to live for Earth each day…

Moment by Moment
I’m touched by Earth’s care…

Somehow,
I Will Survive
didn’t come to my tight throat
or lungs.

I expected NPR
to be non-stop Virus stories
but I did not expect the powerful
multifaceted analysis
of WhiteHouse sacrificing democratic public health
to the false idols of capital marketed denial and greed
and partisan economic competitions
overwhelming public health cooperative discernment
about who we are at our best
and what multicultural resilience
we could most resonantly achieve together
tomorrow.

Our themes for dialogue
are suddenly about how to avoid panic
terror
despair.

I have known threats of panic
terror
and despair
since I realized that “climate change”
is an economic and politically chosen euphemism
for a global climate of disease,
for public health degeneration,
for macro-economic divestment
destruction
dissonance
disaster
win/lose competitions
trumping healthy win/win democratic cooperative ownership
and administration
and facilitation
and restorative justice mediation.

I notice that Wall Street,
which has persistently ignored WhiteHouse ignorance
about climate pathology
as a public economic and political
biological and neurological health disaster,
has been remarkably responsive
to WhiteHouse ignorance
about this viral public health disaster.

I notice more partisan bickering
about who will pay the highest disempowering price
for The Virus,
But I still don’t hear national partisan pundits
learning any lessons this primal ecological
theological relationship
between healthy democracy
and our basic human longing
for cooperatively wealthy health trends
might hope to teach
through compassionate communication,
community,
bicameral communion.

To paraphrase Rev. Dr. M. L. King, Jr.
Where there is climate injustice anywhere
there is pathologically viral injustice threatening everywhere.

Again, if I were running for office
as a Green Democrat
I would not be running against Trump
by vilifying his narcissistic absence of compassion
for public health,

I would run cooperatively engage all people of good faith
to embrace democratic passion for health wealthy Truth
through ego- and eco-therapeutic Reconciliation,
Restorative Justice,
Climate Health,
internal as external

Which can be at least as virally WinWin contagious
as WinLose competitions at grocery
and drug stores
and frighteningly unhealthy health clinics.

Democracy On Fire

In “On Fire”
Naomi Klein reminds us
win/lose capitalism invites a collective action vacuum
and abhors restrictions on money-accumulating freedom,

But Earth,
a healthy global climate,
healthy ecosystems
invite regenerative win/win climax
of cooperatively nurturing health systems
and abhor inhumane definitions of “wealth”
as privately-held and autonomously sequestered currency
energy
natural resources
human resources
labor
equity
capital.

Climate health informs public sector values,
norms,
ecology of nutritional needs
and investment in cooperatively-held wants.

Capitalism’s monopolistic version of “wealth”
informs private sector values,
greedy and predative norms,
theology of transcendent jealousy
and divestment from sacred communion.

When Donald Trump successfully ran for President,
he explicitly ran against all things Obama,
against audacious hope in public sector cooperativism.

Like Nixon’s “Southern strategy”
this was a way
to effectively say
“I am for Straight-White-Evangelical-Male-privileged capitalism,
so I am your safest Business As Usual investment.”

This turns competitive debate
rather than cooperative dialogue,
and private sector CEO decision-making
rather than democratic grass-roots discernment,
and no public health-investment experience
into a “drain the socialist swamp” asset.

He did not mention
his nationalistic capitalism
is abhorrent to global climate health,
public health,
family health,
ecosystemic health,
ego-resilient health,
all of which are rooted in EarthJustice wealth,
regenerative action and win/win response
inviting cooperative social climax
within and between species
and all forms of natural/spiritual living energy systems.

When national Democratic Party leaders
declare objective NumberOne
for 2020 success
is to defeat Trump,
I 20/20 disagree.

This continues and further escalates a win/lose strategy
to out-capitalize the Trumpian icon of Capitalism.
Rather than a democratic positive empowerment strategy.
This is a sub-optimal choice
because it pretends public sector win/win healthy outcomes
can be achieved with more
and more
and more private sector win/lose incomes–
while Earth
community
home burns and melts and floods.

Green Democrats
look to a more resilient
resonant
robust cooperative investment in health.

Health of all kinds:
democratic co-investment health,
environmental health,
economic cooperative-ownership and -management health,
restorative justice health,
peaceful health,
green new deal health,
cooperative health,
compassion health,
love health,
sacred health,
secular health,
ecological health,
theological health,
multicultural health,
polycultural health,
polyphonic health,
polypathic health,
polynomial interdependent intersectional health,

Resonant health,
resilient health
for robust
climaxing
EarthPeace wealth.

Reason To Celebrate

I overheard you say
you are planning a big celebration
for later this year,
when Trump is defeated
for re-election.

I am ready to be invited,
if you would be so kind
to reverse your motives
to celebrating positive alternatives.

I have an uncomfortable memory
that celebrating the former regime’s end
feels alarmingly Trumpian,
rather than introducing a new 2020 green deal
healthier wealth for everyone.

It is this negative anger
growing to more negative fear
that most defeats our capacity to touch each other
with mutual trust,
democratic health,
civil trust in a wealthier future together
than climatically apart.

Earth yields some clues
warmly regarding necessary and sufficient ingredients
for a healthy swamp,
a positive capital co-investment,
an economically resilient,
politically resonant,
multiculturally effective democracy.

Stuckness
She does not choose to celebrate.
MotherEarth
and EarthMothers of all regenerations
vacuum up and sweep out
intolerance.

A competitive model of capital extraction
rooted in devouring our own habitat,
our own win or lose militarized young,
our Earth’s pathological neglect,
is incompatible
antithetical
to a resiliently healthy eco-democracy
recomposing our own healthy born
win/win expectant
left with right,
not left v right, children.

Healthy robust systems
are cooperatively owned
and multiculturally managed
and polyculturally celebrated
by organic nurturers of ego/eco-resonance,
left and right deep bicameral learning nutrients,
informed by Earth’s democratic history
of multiculturing nutrition,
life,
warm truths and trusts,
integral ways
and ego/eco-democratic robust means

Bicameral
Bilateral intelligence
Binomial double-bound
not not pro-green transitional
great reweaving manifestations,
inaugurations,
cooperatively-owned celebrations
leaving no one behind,

Not even straight white male narcissists,
emotionally wounded children
of all ages and parties,
naked emperors
seeking sycophantic celebrants.

Theoretically Justified War

I don’t imagine
we could ever have an environmentally healthy just war.

We need only look at torn and poisoned outcomes
from past ballistic international encounters
to see “healthy war”
as yet another oxymoron
capital city leaders fail to notice.

If no environmentally secure
and well-defended organic life justice results,
then no ecologically resilience-growing war.

If no ecologically positive war,
then no economically just war
as any short-term empowerment wins
are abundantly offset
by long-term losses
of trust
and well-being
and robust trade
transactions,
relationships,
communications.

If no economic just war,
justified violence,
justifiable aggression,
then no democratically healthy just war.

If no politically cooperative win/win just war
of co-empowerment,
then no socially just war,
justified violence,
justifiable aggression.

If no social
or political
or economic
or ecological just war,
then no theologically supported just war.

If no theological just war
then war is just inhumane madness,
lose/lose destruction,
absence of all that could be win/win sacred,
cooperatively owned
CoPresence.

Justice may “Just say No” to drugs,
but restorative
healing justice
definitely says No
to retributive injustice,
aggression
violence
retaliation
bullying
hatred
war.

2020 Roaring Constitutional ReConstructions

Alan Simpson,
a Wyoming Republican,
not known for his socialist ways
nor his sacred communion means of public discourse,
cried out in our Great Dark Night
of white bold
and climate cold
fragility,

“Money’s dominance over politics
isn’t merely one problem of many
our country faces.
It is the problem!”

Perhaps neither Wyoming
Republicans
or Alan Simpson
would mind this contextual paraphrase,

Capitalism’s competitive
LeftBrain cultural and educational systemic dominance
against healthy multicultural empowering politics
isn’t merely one complex problem
of many win/lose communication complications
our 2020 Species faces,

Yet does not RightBrain see
as absence of WinLeft/WinRight cultural
and climate
intersectional wisdom.

We have become LeftBrain predative
partisan capitalists;
THE win/lose,
degenerating toward lose/lose economic-political
climate problems
of either/or partisanship,
religious fundamental bipolar creeds of elitist bad faith,
tolerant of secularized apartheid

Devoid of sacred active win/win hope
for organic ecological theology
or theologically health-metaphoric
muse-metaphonic
music-polyphonic
harmonic metapathic
resonant polypathic
resiliently co-empathic
co-passionate ego/ecology.

All of which
strangely reduces Alan Simpson’s original version
to a summary democratic constitution
condensed milk of RightBrain both/and flexible resonance
urgently, yet more warmly,
seeking health/wealth rememory
regrowing out and in climate cultures
toward expanding win/win global family.

Shit Stinks

I find a great deal to learn
from Republican
Supremacist
Nationalistic
Nihilistic Evangelical Rapture
about how to lose eco-political sanity
and lose ecological health.

It feels important to remember
and respect
basic nutritional facts
of public health through reinvestment
and global climate pathology through extraction
apartheid
blame and shame:

Sh*t stinks.

We civilized Western straight white people
worry about this so much
we dump our waste into our water,
intentionally polluting and sacrificing generic purity,
rather than planting it in our soil,
where healthy scat can grow robust
resilient public and private nutritional green wealth.

Of course poop stinks
or it smells of developing resonant possibilities
for healing polluted
stagnant
depressed
economies;
Fragrance of probabilities
for redeeming corrupted political dissociations,

Sentient scents for a truly multicultural
salvific
robust
resonant
resilient sacred theology
advocating up and down spaces
in and out time
for natural ecology.

Of course your body waste stinks
of outside wealth-nurturing memories.

But, does it smell healthy,
or too red meat-eater
predative RightWing
toilet twittering
rapaciously OtherUnWise eco-politics?
