I Do When You Do
There is one word that can be the guide for your life--
it is the word
There are several synonymous words
personal and social integrity
political and economic synergy
neurological and psychological
ecological and theological
That can guide life v death,
health v pathology
cooperative wealth v competitive disinvestment
regeneration v degeneration
love v despair
impression v depression.
These include words of passion--
impassioned v dispassioned v mispassioned.
E. O. Wilson speaks of biological Consilience
where linguists and political historians
recall co-gravitating Creolization,
rather than patriarchal greedy excesses
of one-power sided colonization.
more positive pro-health
than negative anti-pathologists,
Ecologists and theologians
prefer sustainably regenerative ego-centers
commune left with right hemisphere
harmonic wants with feelings
for compassionate therapeutic communication.
speak out and listen up
for Enthymematic communication,
curiously and courageously opaque
and dual dark
reflective absence of cognitive-affective
and Teachers invoke secular/sacred
and win/win political theology
preparing us to receive mysterious Transubstantiation
More like co-investing with Buck
than passing the buck.
