What to do do about those under the table
What to do about those under the table?
When those paying them are unable,
And have gone back to their scrabble.

Should we be worried they might become unstable,
When a constable is to us unreachable.

If an amnesty was the solution most suitable,
Would they...Read More

Premium Member Marriage Quarantine
I wonder
if marriage could be less of a quarantine
from significant other relationships
and more of a prime relationship
in love's easy and difficult lessons,
growing more resilient as opening out
to deeper and wider resonant caregiving
and receiving,
extending familial relationships
which, in turn,
do not predominately compete...Read More

The story goes that the Buddha sat down under a tree

Some say he was idle and simply tired and just fell asleep

Called it meditation and could not decide where to go

The trigger was jammed and he prayed to the gods of war

For another bullet before he would say Farewell to Arms

Now he sits at Times Square begging for a few measly coins

Carries his memories and belongings on his scarred back

The tip of the fur tree sticks out like a sore candle

Barely visible an angel drowns in a pileup of presents 

Fortunately wrappers and cards are bio-degradable

There is a balance in nature, sustainable and created to allow life large and small. Where does a woman fit into it all? Man is programmed to hunt and spread his genes. How can this possibly match the woman’s nesting...Read More

Premium Member Praising EcoFeminist Climates
Economically comfortable civilians,
without militarized propaganda indoctrination,
without physical neglect or abuse experience,
without religious blame and shame intimidation,
may sustainably recognize themselves as safe,
while stressed about why they do not matter,
do not feel needed
or even uniquely loved and wanted.

We are not born this...Read More

Premium Member Designing Healthier Democracy
Green democratic design,
like PermaCulture Design,
intends polyculturally resilient nutritional outcomes
for global, as for local, interdependently co-attracted ecosystems
composed, in designing part, 
of social-ego communication networks.

Nutritionally attractive outcomes,
and not so much toxically extractive capital incomes,
are naturally and spiritually favored by democratic energy co-investors,

Whirling thoughts of consciousness we forever wave,
Whistling through  tribulations, in search of better days.
To often refected,a wasted fruit. Through our wind forever rave our sustainable root.
No eyes shall see our form. Invisible yet transcending we become form. This your...Read More

If only men could give birth to a child,
do you think and feel
early-term abortions
for healthy sustainable financial reasons
would continue to catalyze RightWing resistance?

to own guns for hunting

primarily from men,

If you are a Zen Buddhist
a Taoist,
where past wealthy resonance
interdependently governs global developing history
with resilient future health projections,

If you are a Zeroist,
or an in-between Zoroastrian,
not asha (1) and not all druj (0) either,

You may know,
and perhaps even over/under-stand,

Impuissance Seed

Was a more selfish weapon so created
those maleficent hands hold themselves acquitted
and in the brutality of its design
deem luxury to be their self sustainable narcotic

But upon such a fake evolutionary pedestal
would belligerence gain its foothold
yet still the spiritual communal
would decline

Sustainable Love
Out of the blue love engulfs you
As Dante's Infernal it can be eternal
Those youthful puppy smells

Combustible heat love at its peak
Sustainable love not for the weak

Billions of years old this unique blue planet of ours

Great transitional resolutions,
effective resilient communications,
like all communal, valid systems,
like all communions, vital paradigms,
grow robust as fueled by compassion

And grow frail
blown up
as fueled by competitive aggression,
the narcotic nastiness of self-criminalizing narcissism,
internal externalizing anti-democratic terrorism.

Negative nutrition
is non-positive communication,
not non-violent transubstantiation,
not not absence...Read More
