Toxic 2018

I've noticed a new favorite word
in 2018
was "toxic."

And, in on-line discussions,
a newly invested discernment
of what it might fascist imply
to lead each white privileged day
with patriarchal narcissism.

Hillary,
unlike St. Hilary,
could stand iconic for matriarchal narcissism.
It exists, like a recessive gene
in our integrity pool of compassion's unlikely opportunities,
yet is as yin to patriarchal yang, divided,
narcissism soft-core,
not yet hard advanced past capital-drenched dreams 
of satiated blond and blue-eyed middle-ages

Too often patriarchal narcissism devolves
into runaway Kochian economic fascism,
anti-ecological hoarding wealth,
racist nationalistic pathology,
putrid absence of Primal EarthPatriotism.

What I hope,
and mutually need,
to hear more nutritiously compassionate
is about cosmic creative tension
between patriarchal narcissism as a weapon
and matriarchal compassion as a tool,
co-passioning within monocultural political powers for evil
and good ecotherapeutic 
polypathic multicultures.

Resilient health-invested cultures
still have active faith
that a compassionate Gaia
is more effluently powerful,
demonstrates more everyday resilient waves
restoring outside peace,
than that of God's DisRapturous Fear
His narcissistic followers will not inside recall
I AM THAT I AM 
CoPassion.

For inscrutable reasons,
I thought of toxic narcissism v. healthy compassion
when I heard DJ Trump
amuse his wild-eyed followers,

Explaining his new-found epiphany
that, to best defend his personal political future opulence,
he should oppositionally ask his enemies
for what he does not truly want.

A more experienced compassionate politician would disagree with:
The best way to earn democratic long-term trust
is to tell the opposition I do not have the political will
to build walls,
when I do,

To pretend to protect the good white consumers inside
and to keep out alien threats to future omnipotence
of internalized toxic narcissism.

Narcissism's imaginary inside voices
do not consider what we the people
and plants
and planet healthy want
and need
to nourish compassion's resilient interdependence.

The Wall
between political compassion and personal narcissism,
for Kochians and Trumpians,
is all about what white patriarchal I
narcissistically want
to beat down compassionate matriarchal self-empowerment,
co-operative economic/ecological health care,
radically accessible to all EarthTribe values
and extended family norms.

Fracturing narcissism hopelessly reacts against remaining compassionate
healthy hearts,
cooperative imaginations of liberally impassioned democracy 
trusting multicultural people
plants
and living co-passioned planet.
