Ageism Poem Example

Just Show Up

Basic Attendance,
listening deeply to the sounds
and functions
flows and forms of nature's voices,
evolves from enthymematic roots
toward mutually empathic,
darkly transparent
nondual dark energy

Equivalently empowering/disempowering identity
of not-yet-full synergetically integrating
diastatic Time,
equivocating spatially incarnating
multisystemic harmonic balance
between Yangstimulus(t) and Yinresponse.

From this epicenter of Basic EcoPresence,
we begin noticing our over-commodified
sexist and racist 
and monochromatic disablest
anti-cultural economy,
habitually uses financial currency
as the measure of life-giving wealth,
while using nutritional currency
as our measure of health.

Hmmm. That happens. And?

When we must choose between cooperative health survival
or competitive accumulation of wealth-thrival objectives,
we are likely to return to healthy survival of Earth
and all species
as ultimate measure of a culture's wealth;
and we are each a DNA-informed culture.

At least,
that appears to be our routine positive ecological behavior
after the tsunami
the tornado
the hurricane
the financial earthquake
the critical interruption of cooperative Business As Usual
vacates our competing economic chatter
and anemic ego identities.

So what?

and sexism
and class-ism, segregation-ism,
and anthropocentric elitism
and ageism
and capitalism,
evolutionary dead end tributaries of self-perpetuating revolution
that become issues
emerging from an ego-centric Left-brain dominant species.

We invest in supremacist (and too often ballistic) elitism
when we assume human nature somehow evolves more entitled
and privileged
and value-capital invested
outside our anawim, our untouchables, our aliens, our enemies,
our emphatically distrusted non-elites,
including lesser endowed natural-spiritual species
without concomitant responsibility
and risk
and opportunity
to remember and remain within eco-centric cooperating ballast.

Western red skies
predict Trinitarian Yang/spatial In-Formation,
co-arising Eastern dawn of Basic CoElational nondual culture;
positively bilateral YangYin 
as WinWin temporal-timeless regenerate co-function.

Basic EcoDance meets Time's Prime ReCreational Dysfunction:
Our economic lifestyle and choices
either lean toward cooperating with Time's unfolding wisdom,
sometimes called karmic flow of sacred grace,
or we can continue to over-invest in competing
to possess larger and larger responsibilities
for monopolizing quantities of Earth's healthy time.

Plan A is Win-Win eco-logic.
Plan B is Lose-Lose ego-dislodging competitive 
collective insanity masking rich opportunities within
Basic EcoPresence 
sharing Time's 
beloved-ing NatureNurture.
