Today is an episode dedicated to the lives of Daunte Wright, George Floyd, Jamar Clark, Philando Castile, Breonna Taylor, Sandra Bland, Ahmaud Arbery, and countless others whose lives and breath were taken away unjustly.
I feel lots of feels. What to do but dive into the practice of poetry, of holding the intersecting tensions of it all with the breath of new creation. I share a poem about feelings around checking in with the trial briefly and then share my thoughts about how to continue to dissect the intersecting sicknesses of white supremacy and disconnection from Mother Earth.
I talk about watching Downton Abbey and using it as a way to understand more deeply where these twisted energies of supremacy, racial and other kinds of hierarchy have come from and how they are connected to how we show up in our bodies in present times. Tend. Forgive. Have compassion. Accept. Be accountable. Step up again and again to figure out your role in the transformation. You got this love.

Total Eclipse of the Heart – Stories of the In Between
We are arguing whether or not a human has the right to take away
The breath of another human
Even the fact that we have the opportunity to ‘justify’ this
Is proof that this system
Is based on a millenia of harm
This system that has been in place
Is not for life
This system is a system of death
Death to our souls
Death to our intuition
Death to our humanity
I wish I could say it would be death to our ego
That is strong strong strong
Money paid to lawyers
Defending millenia-old twisted knots
In the psyche of man
In the energy of man
In the mascu / femme psyche
In the white mascu / femme psyche
It is truth that we must create a new way
An ancient way of balance and feminine holding
A peaceful resurrection of seeds of goddess
Take the case to the priestess temple instead
She will know how to tend the soul
The body is of no matter
It is of full matter
This matter is all
This soul in matter is the only way
Black lives matter
Indigenous lives matter
Asian lives matter
Your evolution and dreams of peaceful ways matter
To defend centuries of energetic knots
Makes me sick to my stomach
This is too much
So difficult to check in
When all I see is sickness defending sickness
Greed of power over
Hate of self and the futility of arguing details
The wherewithal to even try to defend such heinousness
Humanity’s soul knows of the guilt
The viral video erupting true solidarity and un-restfulness in us
Because how can we be beholden to the depths
Where the monstrous system defends itself
In lieu of real deep healing
The way through is not defense of the old
It is creation of the new
The tensions are pulling my heart
The jury is rigged
Who has the power to throw out jurors?
And essentially make sure that the twisted falsity of whiteness prevails
It dies with me
Can it die with me?
How can I let it die more?
Why so sticky?
Why do you hold on for dear life?
When you so easily take it?
Psyche of whiteness
Fairy of psyche death
Come to me and my children dream’s and hold them
My dear sunshine
Help him feel the feelings
And tend the dying dreams
And the ones of life
