Dystopic Opiates

Paraphrasing Dickens
speaking of Great Expectations
through Pip’s distraining voice,
Our worst religious weaknesses
and political meannesses
and self and other deprivations
are usually committed
for the sake of avoiding elitist people
whom we most actively distrust.

On the other hand,
trust invites vulnerability
as distraining poverty embraces wealth,
expanding democracy
and cooperative co-investment.

Oppressive religious and cultural repressions and suppressions
are opiates of multiculturing people
When monoculturing elitists
offer religious opiate addictions to domesticating ritual
thereby over-ruling democratic spiritual experience
of daily natural and cooperative liturgies.

Polycultural non-elites,
like young organic gardeners of polyphonics
and ecofeminist transgendering designers,
thrive best within an alliance
of the gentle and broken,
vulnerable and open
to new cooperative intimacies,
gentrifying neighborhoods and families
and hearts
designed by rural-memory values
for nutrition that also nurtures,
health that also wealths,
climates embracing edible and richly colored landscapes,
of and for regenerating
future generations
of and for polycultural cooperative EliteNetworks,
neither opiated
nor nervously nirvanaed nellies
nor disappointed
that WinLose investment
didn’t turn out
as WinWin actively hoped for
through EcoPolitical Constitutions
reborn in and through each matriarchal ego/eco-doublebound
organic governing womb,
probably not so Dystopically Opiated,
at least in our moments of original cooperative conception.

Or, we could end less simply Dickens,
with Great Expectations for avoiding:
Our worst religious weaknesses
and political meannesses
and self and other deprivations,
usually committed
for the sake of avoiding elitist people
(and other divine personages,
distraining gods and goddesses)
whom we most actively,
LeftBrain dominantly,


Quality Climate Changes

Quantities of time feel nothing.
Calculating, summing and subtracting,
days and weeks,
months and years and decades
roll past our eyes and ears
our growing and shrinking stomachs
to leave their strong and weak-grooved rings,
yet I only feel and remember qualities of time as co-present,
or dissonant immune reactions
of fear about time’s future qualities
anger about time’s past conflicts
burning hot bright volcano hatreds
adrenaline flowing flashes
accessible as bliss
only completely invested, immersed,
within this timeless moment,
too seldom aware of Earth’s intelligent co-present fertility
as grace dancing through our quantities of mortal metric times.

Qualities of time’s regenerate evolutions
long to feel everything belonging once again together,
as if beyond a foggy lapse of mirrored identity
this was our golden era memory
feeding on matriarchal placentas
when all felt now-ly timeless
and right
and true as good
and warm-full beauty filled.

Perhaps here lies our measure of time’s healthiest quality,
economic and political as ecologically environmental growth therapy,
surfing through this timeless now of polypathic potential consciousness
of feelings positive through negative
emerging from and for and through and in and on and over each now
submerging into past speciating
branching memories,
trees of old strong-rooted felt memory
weighed against and for our original embryonic nurturing standards
for stronger ecopolitical health
as less climatic pathology
through this eternally regenerating now.

Quality of Tao feels everyone potentially to-gathering.
