Damnations

Dad,
why is the white skin on your capitalist legs
so dry?

Well,
I got older…
Damn,
I knew that would happen
if I continued breathing!

Anyway,
and I also forgot
to apply my cooperative lotion this morning,
and maybe too warmly competing yesterdays…
Damn climate change!
I knew that would happen…

A Social Complex

What is social complexity?
asks and answers Robert Wright
which also reads just as right as
What is regenerative density?
to me
and perhaps to Bucky Fuller,
and then again Gregory Bateson’s
What is sacred ecology?
comes to reweave Laotse’s
What is self/other-regenerative abundant flow of governance?

Mr. Wright
looks back to Mr. Leslie White:
“Cultural [and economic and political and psychological] evolution,
he (White) announced,
could be measured by a single [appositional]gauge,
calibrated in terms of [regenerative/degenerative] energy.”

Mr. Wright,
quoting Mr. White-Wright creolization,
“[Multi]Culture develops
when the amount of energy harnessed
[net produced-regenerate/consumed-degenerate]
by man [and woman and all EarthTribes and Earth and all healthy developing/maturing/aging organic systems]
per [(0)-Sum WinWin] capita
per year
per life
is increased [more cooperative WinWin than competitive WinLose]”;

Mr. Wright,
about Mr White,
“He virtually equated cultural evolution
with the [ecopolitical] evolution
of [positive-WinWin/negative-WinLose] energy [self-regenerative] technology.
The [regenerative integrating-nurturing] efficiency
with which [positive] energy is captured [harvested, cooperatively invited]
and employed [co-invested]
wasn’t just a cause,
or a gauge,
but the [winwin-both/and with either/or bilateral] cause,
and the [bicameral balancing] gauge,
of [ecopolitical] [multi]cultural evolution.”

What is Earth’s ecopolitical creolizing-democratizing complexity?
What is growing regenerative health-wealth density
while shrinking degenerative EitherOr LeftBrain deductive
Patriarchal Anthro-Elitist dominance?

When I want to hear more social complexity,
I stay inside and listen to the OldNews.
When I want to see and hear and smell more global regenerativity,
climate and landscape health and safety,
I step outside
and remain there as cooperatively as possible
for as long as possible,
and usually as silently as possible,
although singing and laughter and dancing are coopratively invited.

I cannot sustain an inside voice of War against Patriarchal Terrorists,
but I can maintain an outside voice of Nurturing
with Matriarchal-WinWin Cooperative CoOwnership.

Anthro-rhetorical complexity
and regenerative-integrity density
are the same organic-systemic becoming,
both Left-WinWin regenerative and ElderRight-WinLose degenerative-antipathic distrust and co-empathic-aptic trust
in DNA’s BiLateral-CoOperative Business As Usual
on and with and of and for ever more
Yin-matriarchal/Yang-patriarchal
regenerating ecopolitical density.

Quotes from Nonzero: The Logic of Human Destiny, p. 344, Robert Wright, 2000.

Singing for Stevie’s Wonder

I remember,
in the early 60s,
our thirty mile drive
from our historic family farm,
in all White rural Michigan,
not counting the Mexican migrant workers
which adults made a point of discounting,
on the first of several shopping trips to Thrifty Acres,
through vibrantly young all Black urban streets
of nearby Lansing.

Making Stevie Wonder and I,
him singing in all Black city churches
and me in all White rural and small village churches,
harmonic neighbors in my privately humming heart
yet never possible to publicly meet and greet
as this nation and this world were meant to sing
and dance our regenerations not apart.

I didn’t know apartheid by default yet
but I do remember
seeing nearly black as ink skin for the very first time
on a smiling brown-eyed boy
on a chipped white painted bicycle without rims,
and longing to talk and listen with him
and laugh with him about the fresh green smell of freedom from training wheels,
freedom to create our own fast pedaling breeze
across our summer-hot black and white faces and arms,
and knowing that I would touch his dark warm skin
with loving wonder
about what it could be like to become with him,
to grow together,
to smell and feel and fly our satisfying diverse integrity
on a tandem red in-your-face bike,
bright shining all the way back
from Black-streets Lansing
through little White Woodland,
spreading across all Black with White Capital Cities
on out to woodland farmers,
to peddle fly while singing our glad hosanna wonders.

As I reweave
this first drive by encounter with racial diversity
and humane ecstatic curiosity,
I imagine asking Mom to stop,
pull our metallic gold Ford over
so I could ask his thick black-framed glasses name,
which would be Stevie,
and take his hand
to walk his bike back to his home and family
where we would live together
happily and most prosperously ever after.

This was my moment,
too quickly passed,
to know passion’s love at first sight,
these sublime sounds and dark satin skin smells
of Stevie’s Wonder.
