When We Are Healthy

If we are not,
is this always the opposite of
when we are?

If we are negative,
is this sometimes appositionally
in creative tension with
when we are becoming more positive?

If we are a noticed absence
is this sometimes appositional
to we are not yet perceived?

And is this more oppositional
when we are an unnoticed absence
defying hostile misperceptions
we need never become known
appreciated
positively regarded?

A newly observed absence
merely appositional integrity
waiting curiously aware
we are not yet seen
known
regarded
appreciated
cherished

And yet,
or not
still surviving
where and when
we once together thrived

Or still reviving
why
now and then
Earth once healthy thrived
wealth of positively co-relating
co-empathic
co-regarding not retributively just me
as also
more positively
restoring restorying eco-we

If I am not
merely the opposite
of who we are becoming
together
more than appositionally apart

Reconnecting egos
oppositionally
defiantly unhealthy
unwealthy
indigenously unwise
anthro-supremacist upstarts.

Pestering parents
and teachers,
nurses
and preachers:
If we are not feeling
physically sick,
is this merely the EarthTribal opposite
of when Others are thinking
spiritually ill?

Plotting, may not be planning
designing, may not be re-creating
maligning, feels disaligning
threatening, couldn’t be encouraging
aggressing, feels spectacularly unkind
regressing, not impressive
dissociating, cause for not reassociating
divesting, feels like lack of co-investment
excommunicating, simply not communicating
colonizing, sounds like a malignant tumor rumor
punishing, seldom is rewarded with compassion
traumatizing, encourages self-stigmatizing
marginalizing, chronic traumatizing
terrorizing, critical traumatizing events

Wandering
wondering if we are anthro-healthy,
is this always the opposite of
when we are feeling EarthTribe uneased?

Another Storm

Another storm threatens to come in,
feeling my responsibility
for uncaring
and unresponsive history

Fearing you
more than loving us

Setting out your pails
and plastic tubs
to catch cold
and dreary drips

Impaled remembering
past wet enemies
becoming darker spots
as moisture threatens,
building mold untold
as yet
by angry lips

Dripping windowed frames
and ceiling fixtures
of your felt losses
not equally carried
by more comforted me
opaque with tender crosses

Buried
in how lonely
love can feel
hidden in Earth’s evolving top,
improbable to see

Our together threatening
leaky roof may drown,
which you would have fixed
some months ago,
if you could do so
on your own.

This storm pauses
and brighter rays suggest
a sun still shining
behind dark uncivil distress

Clouds could uncover
our disassociation,
poor and hovering
coveting a sun-drenched nation

Calculating our cost in cash,
but not in minds and bodies
to stop stormy smothers
of inside raining
draining issues,
deep core tissues
thundering crash

Warning we must get this done
before another wild wet storm
fearing you
more than loving us,
undone

Darker clouds build to leak again
while I explain why
you still can’t trust me
to invest in unstormed peace

A contenting roof
unconditionally done

So all EarthTribe
can safely put away our pails
and nails,
defensive weapons,
buckets,
overflowing pans
and spans of climate panic

Now rumbling receding thunder
of fearing you
more than loving us

Turns toward replacing damaged health,
repriming stains repainting wealth
of more warmly wild respect
while together musing
about who is bare surviving
and is not thriving
with what prestorming care,

Remembering who is dry
and fair
and prosperous
and why
we fear this tragic storm
more than loving weathered warm.

Cantos of Communion

All relationships
steadfast monotheistic
become stagnant hate

And change becomes
rightly and left weighed
swayed animation
accelerated
and delayed
panentheistic.

Yet we are not entirely changed
from our first health wealthy estate,
transubstantiating positive
by our changed circumference
our becoming does dilate
and integrate,
regenerate

And, returning to our selves
at co-related length
and width
and depth again
each day through night

Do awake
to working play
our cooperative perfection
as if by compassion’s fate

Inward,
outward
undulate.

Note: Inspired by, and respoken with gratitude becoming, Spenser’s “Cantos of Mutabilitie”

Progressive Health Intentions

The opposite of pain
is not ease.

An apposition of ease
is ecstasy.

The difference between pain
and pathology
reflects transparent
appositions between gaining ease,
green global peace,
and health caring ego-individuations
aiming past win/lose easy privilege

Straight white patriarchal
leftbrain ego’s verbal encultured supremacy
capitalistically communicating tolerated ease
with win/lose
cognitiveLeft/affectiveRight
eco-politically painful dissonance

And yet in-between
win/win tipping points
dipolar co-arising narrow Ways,
Yang left secular health power
embracing sacred wealth light
right/reverse-left interdependent web
of green cooperative
ecofeminist life Yintegrity

Of win/lose impatient tolerance’s complexity,
a nonzero zone
heuristic both/and anticipation
of win/win green cooperative health benefits
for wealthy ego/eco-systemic balance
rebalance
prebalance
anti-balance
disbalance
misbalance
violent lose/lose
through compassionate win/win
bicamerally cross-communicating

The opposite of ego-recentering pain
is not ecosystemic win/lose
chronically competitive unease
about further predative,
patriarchal,
dissociative apartheid,
monoculturing degenerative weedpatch experiences,

Slipping toward vague discomfort
with pain and distant
yet inevitable
autonomous ego mortality.

An appositive win/win reverse
of egocentered anthro-supremacist
leftbrain dominant disease
of chronically assuming
presuming to WinEgo
ZeroSum logically requires
Losing EcoHabitat health optimization
for all Earth’s Others

Is not yet Win/Win Yang/Yin
green cooperatively eco-political
global climate of healthy democracy care
sharing ecosystemic ecstasy
with individual ego identity
refined within systemic integrity’s
EarthEcstasy Green EcoPolitics

Also becoming personal
cooperatively preferred EgoClimate
of Earth’s sacred green/blue paradise

Resilient for future regenerations
compassionately re-communicating
local through global
green peace potential.
