Refined White Values

While trickling thick amber honey in my black decoffied coffee I wonder why I never noticed until just ever now How refined white sugar has monopolized my wider full-hued view of more nurturing nutritional brown sugars natural bio-resonant sweets healthier sugar-phosphate cooperative relationships as if the least of these white privileged rich and resilient wealth potentials were iconic of healthier multiculturing also-rans Like holistically engrained rich brown bread compared most nutritiously to light white lordly loaves Like resilient and brilliant carotene natural carrot juice and spiritually resonant mellow melon melodic cucumber white privilege unencumbered polyphonic sweet salad. So too, as I pour in thickening oatmilk, I wonder about primal values commodifying capital-invested currency as a pathetic shadowy dietary substitution replacing other healthier wealthier humane value systems favoring polycultural revolutions Like energy currents of win/win compassion, climaxing integrity and overflowing resonant harmonic ionic complex co-investment Like receiving co-infested green cooperative humane communion while Earth worshiping integrity of universally valued regenerative resilient roots stemming back to an alpine fragrant MotherTree inviting this renewing campground dawn. So too, while inhaling warm comfort, I wonder about Straight White Patriarchal Papi's divisive ChosenPeople monotheism monopolizing my imaginative emotional investment market Overwhelming values for other biological diversely ecological synergetic geological anthropological multicultural Theisms Like panentheistic felt unity, without uniformly rigid LeftBrain dominant disempowering requirements of hierarchical capital-headed exclusive comprehension And also like holistic healing polytheisms, without monoculturing ecopolitical desecrating traumas of rabidly viral StraightWhiteMale values win-or-lose devolving debating dissociative Patriarchal-Capitalist uniformly deductive divinely predestined competitions, Yet again, Atheism, rooted in agnostic humility without inhumane LeftBrain dominating hubris of elitist reductive humanism camouflaging AnthroTheistic Supremacy Like making Straight WhiteSugar Daddy God in my own retributive judging negatively refining dualistically dark shameful degenerative repressing unhealthy unwise depressing Images Wanting to return to nutritious nurturing integral co-passionate resonant health, resilient wealth multi-engraining richly resonant values While trickling thick amber honey in my golden oatmilk health restorative deep and richly valued polyculturally addictive coffee.
