Premium Member He Expected the Worst in Everyone
He had a perpetual angry sneer
A lip that curled and an attitude that said
Back off

Expressed dissatisfaction with you 
before you reached his eye level
you could feel his disgust

He expected the worst in everyone
Substandard treatment, racism, sexism,
and all the other isms

He...Read More

Premium Member Invitations Are Out
The invitations are already out
for our local community dialogue
without need to shout or pout
about another straight white male monologue.

In fact,
as fiction,
we have taken a nearly unprecedented step
of inviting straight white males
over the maturing age of thirty
to show up in droves

Premium Member Things that Bug Me
Out of control children, out of patience parents,
People who feel entitled to not work, 
Bullying behaviors, racism, and ageism

Misogynist dictators, fervent followers who do not know why they follow,
People who are not held accountable for their bad manners,
Cigarette smoke in...Read More

Premium Member Is It Not A Shame
Red squirrels, fluffy tails, clamoring up a tree.
Chattering with their cousins, in a group of sixty-three.
Gray squirrels, brown glittering eyes, to almost black.
Staying to themselves, in four hollow tree stumps in the back.
Making fun, laughing at, poking fun at each...Read More

Premium Member HealthCare Passions
MultiCultural Teaching and Listening

All major educational challenges,
for both consumers and producers of communication,
call for best outside/inside compassion practices
rooted in cooperative awareness of nutritional flow patterns,
contrasted against toxic stagnation entropy, apathy,
and flowering as WinEgo/WinEco-health values.

For example,
racism and sexism and ageism and...Read More

Premium Member Hatred Hurts Your Soul Plan
Hatred hurts your soul plan.
Flexibility allows your brain to visit angels in your dreams.
Empathy and truth opens your soul's eyes to planned possibilities.
Heartfelt thinking readily recognizes your essence and life's bliss.
Your angels love helping expert game plans, already in your...Read More

Premium Member How Will We Label It
A baby was born with carotene skin and left 
on a Senator’s doorstep in Washington.
This neonate’s pigment was reddish orange,
bright too, unusually garish.
How will we label it? The lawmakers fretted
when the Senator took it to the Capitol Building
to try and...Read More

Premium Member All Women Over Forty Are Dried Up
Absurd situations amuse me; they get written into poems.
Foolish generalizations about groups of people infuriate me; 
they also get written into poems.
All Irish, all whites, all English, all red-heads, there is no all.  
It makes not a whit of...Read More

Angel?
Demon?
Faerie?
Witch?
Random labels
None apply.
We are all changelings
Pure and simple
Or complicated and unpure
Depending upon the mood, the moment, and our momentous events.
Divorce, death, cancer, car wrecks, they all take a toll on us.
Changing us completely in one second.
Giving us a perspective we...Read More

Dear Covenant to Empower Children, Inc.

I was in a Potlatch CoHousing Cafe
just the other repair-invested day
for both ego and eco therapy.

Our host introduced
this Potlatch SkillShare event
speaking to himself:

The less I share skills and resources
on cooperative terms
of common educational PositivEnergy endeavor,

Premium Member Creolizing Grace
We often lament long-term effects of slavery
on those enslaved across multiple generations.

Enslavement leads to addiction and codependent denial,
then is taught and mentored to enslaved children,
also separated from family and sold,
until third generations and beyond
were dressed in commodified adoptions
and creolizing adaptions
and...Read More

Premium Member Sublime Terror
Let's say I am an anthropocentric terrorist.

What would we be saying? 
And isn't that redundant somehow?
If terrorists are ethnocentric,
does that not also require you to indulge in anthro-centrism?

I suppose
if you are not an Anthro,
then it's OK not to care the...Read More

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
positive
protonic
polymorphic
polypathic
polyphonic
polycultural
multisystemic harmonic balance
between Yangstimulus(t) and Yinresponse.

From this epicenter of Basic EcoPresence,
we begin noticing...Read More

AGEISM
a pervasive bareness

its intrigues
