School Days

The last days of summer sigh,
breathe out slowly.
Summer colors fade.

Mercurochrome leaves-
burnt orange and lemon yellow-
mimic the colors in my new wool sweater.

Liquid saffron autumn light
filtered through the trees,
remind me of other days
filled with envy.

Me in plain brown oxfords,
skirt not quite in style,
hand-me-down dresses,
coat from Woolworth.

Brown bag lunch.
Meat loaf sandwich.
Embarrassing milk in a pint jar,
lid screwed onto waxed paper.

Academic IQ..Honor Roll,
Social IQ: Dumb as a post.
I'm so shy, I'm speechless,
and just a little overweight.

While princesses in white buck Spauldings,
dyed-to-match sweater sets,
swish crinolines under grey poodle skirts,
flip their perfect page boy haircuts.

They meet in the cafeteria,
to dine on Jello and cottage cheese,
a dollop of mayonaise on top; 
to discuss the latest fashion and
who is "going steady" with whom.

Trees of our Forest

Trees in a mindbody forest
work together in hidden ways
and through this cooperation
increase their shared resistance to disease,
mutually held immunities from shared pathologies.

In this way,
densely muticultural forest systems
with mature cooperative resistance
co-evolve even more robust
and mutually creolizing resonant;
not exactly might makes right
but more like right relationships emerge eco-flowing might.

This fertile resonance 
is a cooperative face
of mutually competing resistance,
and vice versa.

A glass half empty of mistrust
also half full of trusting climates
and landscapes of emerging proactive health.

We used to have a bicameral legislature
that worked together in hidden and public sector ways
but now has voted more for less through competition
thereby Either/Or reducing our shared WinWin resistance
to mutually terrorizing pathologies,
and avoiding any taint
of mutually creolizing informed and fertile resonance.

We have all heard of 
and feared becoming
dumb as a post,
but our larger ecopolitical forest
appears to behave less co-intelligently than a tree.
