Worshiping Violence

God,
like Heaven and Earth,
could only be universally transcendent
creative energy

If also unitarian immanent
recreative integrity.

This may appear to be a glitch
to those who believe
we have a manifest divine destiny
to grow
grow
grow and multiply
without concurrent responsibility
to harmony within one shared web of life,
integrity strength with resilient flow.

Contrary to popular capitalistic opinion,
violence,
and threat thereof,
is not a win/lose zero-sum option,

Like slavery
and racism
and colonization,
power-overing is a much more toxic
lose/lose
vicious-encircling
lack of win/win 
compassion-optioned choice-making.

Risky,
like choosing clothing-optional strategies
for vulnerable transparency

But,
without the sunburn
and danger of staring,
scaring small children.
