Otherhood

Otherhood

Otherhood

Sometimes a wrecking ball
isn’t the best way to bring
down an ailing structure.
 
A decrepit edifice,
an old paradigm.
 
Whether a literal
thing, place
or person
For it creates a
kind and quantity
of rubble that takes
time and treasure—
perhaps sweat, 
tears and blood,
to clean up.
 
Rather, it seems
wise to allow forces
of higher purpose to 
dismantle what needs 
dismantling, enabling a
natural series of events 
to play out their roles 
whether as agents of 
disintegration, or 
of compost.
 
Sometimes it takes
a kind of neutron ball
to raze what no longer
supports habitation
and its many 
life forms.
 
Energy summoned
to hold highest good
to manifest amidst
energies being 
summoned for
other means.
And ends.
 
There is a kind of fever
attendant in the waiting, 
the wanting of the 
essential, the 
inexorable 
clearing 
to occur.
 
I’m reminded of a scene
in a film* wherein a bunch
of unruly children were only
becalmed, silenced, by 
a video of a house 
being demolished. 
 
Yes. There is that.
 
But there is also a choice 
enfolded in the time it takes
to allow a thing that is ripe,
overripe, to fall from a tree. 
 
To be made into
something nourishing,
like lunch, cider,
a pot of jam.
 
That perennial choice 
between allowing
and controlling.
 
Sometimes it is a
fuzzy distinction,
even a difficult
choice. 
 
Other times, 
it couldn’t be
more clear.
 
Our great mother
teaches us the 
benevolence 
of cycles on
this land. 
 
Should we resist 
their rounding ways, 
ever in flux/flow, we will 
continue to trap ourselves 
in circles, chasing our 
tails and blaming 
them for their 
goading.
 
It is, of course,
unnecessary,
for all is well
in hand.
 
If we trust 
that it is so.
 
Letting our revolutions
be a peaceable ride
round our magnificent 
sun, all of us, or spun
round something
which shoots 
and isn’t 
a star. 
 
We are joined in
this moment to want
something more, better,
brighter, than has been
before. It is the glue 
that binds us to 
each other.
 
To all that is
and can be.
 
It is the realization
that life is urging 
us to make real:
 
brotherhood, 
sisterhood,
otherhood.
 
We are family.
Earthkind. Let us
remember that it is
our opportunity, in this
life, to turn what we’ve
long experienced as 
dysfunction into 
a functioning
state of 
union.
 
Right
where
we live.
