Outside
Outside of the tribe there is darkness,
The village provides your fire,
The elders tell you the path,
Do not raise their ire,
Do not provoke their wrath.
 
Outside of the tribe there is loneliness,
There is safety in the group,
The truth is what we say,
Do not fly the coup,
Do not question the tribe's way.
 
Outside of the tribe there is coldness,
The community will keep you warm,
Acceptance will be your safe place,
Do not challenge the changing norm,
Do not dare call the changes base.
 
Outside of the tribe there are torches,
I bring the fire out with me,
I will find the path with my own eyes,
Fear of ire and wrath can't make me unfree,
For the rulers are telling lies.
 
Outside of the tribe there are kindred spirits,
A group can be built between even just two,
When torchbearers frankly can speak,
They can maybe find out what's true,
Without fear of it being too bleak.
 
Outside of the tribe there are settlements,

This time evil wore white skin,
This time it was the hatred called revenge,
This time they didn't wait for facts to begin,
This time the actual victims they did want to avenge,
Good to see they have courage.
 
Last time it was a religious zeal,
Last time caution was the watchword,
Last time they acted as if it was unreal,
Last time it was the victims unheard,
Why didn't they have courage?
 
If it's wrong to attack people because of the beliefs they hold,
If it's wrong to distract from those injured and dead,
Is it wrong to attack because of your beliefs that make you bold,
Is it wrong to talk about discrimination instead,
Which takes courage?
 
Be consistent.

Obsession
It began at early age,
The obsession of my mind,
Every letter perfectly formed,
The imagination stretches further than the screen,
I drank in every picture and word on turning page,
There was no book unread in childhood left behind,
So before I was schooled I was in reading informed,
Even the dictionary for me could build a scene.
 
Ardor and school to me were the same,
In listening it seemed I noticed repetition among my peers alone,
So to sate my thirst I'd turn ahead,
And be called on to answer without looking up,
Soon reading in stealth became my game,
And to my teachers I was a nuisance known,
They'd rather that I was like the other children instead,
But I am not water to fill a preferred cup.
 
I used to hate the task of writing for class,
Teachers offered prompts to us that held no interest,
Pencils wore the groove in my middle finger,
And the expression of what was in my mind was rough,
Back then it felt like they were behind unbreakable glass,
Invisible to all but th

Hot Day
A forgotten wallet eats up four hours,
The heat saps away even thinking's will,
Can't take a nap after hitting the showers,
Put on a smile and of fun have your fill.

Chance
Mrs. K. ran her fingers through her auburn hair in puzzlement as her charge looked up at her with pleading violet eyes.  She looked at Maxwell's earnest, unsure frown, his index fingers tapping against each other in front of the delicate flower he had picked, roots and all, and the nervous flexing of his toes beneath the leather straps of his sandals.  She knelt down on one knee, and brushed a clump of dirt off of his "Little Angel" shirt before she started to talk to him, "You don't usually like to go there in the summer, Maxie, so I'm a little surprised.  Can you tell me why?"  Though her regal face wore a soft, warm smile, Mrs. K.'s nephew made son cast his eyes to his toes and hid his eyes beneath a shock of shaggy black hair.  A thin and delicate hand pressed Maxwell's shoulder gently, and he reacted by stepping in closer.  Slowly, gently, as if she were a willow bending in the breeze, Mrs. K. drew him into a soft embrace, and when Maxwell was wrapped

Baseball
Shots ring out on baseball field,
Political violence escalates even more,
It's from the same side with a media shield,
We'll see this again to be sure,
For terror is an old weapon they like to wield.
 
Quickly the parrots must squawk about Trump,
They blame him for a climate of hate,
His supporters in with the failed assassin they'll lump,
All before the facts come in they throw about their weigh,
The juicy fruit of terror is for them simply too plump.
 
When the truth comes out the quickly shut their traps,
Turns out this would be murderer was a Bernie Bro,
They start talking about guns and try to put motives under wraps,
A climate of hate is down a rhetorical path they'll no longer go,
They think they can depend on an American intelligence lapse.
 
The problem you see is the evil saloons serving beer,
It can't be that there is corruption in our cities,
It can't be that the wives chose men they can't keep here,
So we'll campaign for probation and fund comities,
Then we'

Celiac
I miss beer,
I miss the feel of bubbles dancing,
I miss the bouquet of hops,
I miss the tastes varied and entrancing,
I miss the one more before nights end,
I miss beer.
 
I miss pasta,
I miss noodle macaroni and everything in between,
I miss the al dente feel as it gently yields,
I miss white alfredo red marinara and pesto green,
I miss the base of meals from Italian fields,
I miss pasta.
 
I miss bread,
I miss the crackling of a thick crust,
I miss the tang of a yeasty loaf to be torn by teeth,
I miss kneading on a counter covered in flour dust,
I miss the satisfaction that baguette would bequeath,
I miss bread.
 
I am tempted sorely by bread, pasta, and beer,
I know survivors of stroke so perhaps I oughtn't fear!

I thought I knew what I was getting into when we met,
I thought I had it all sown pat,
I thought I'd been around the block enough times,
Would that every surprise was greeted with chimes,
Life would have been full of such music at that,
Even as a boy I never knew how much I could fret.
 
Brothers are different from sisters I soon learned,
They're more durable in the physical sense,
They don't complain as much when you push them off the roof,
Little brothers laugh more easily at it as a goof,
And in wrestling I could get intense,
But how to treat a sister was knowledge yet earned.
 
Little boys lack tenderness until it's taught,
Little sister's tears can't be laughed away,
Little sister's cries sound different to my heart,
You brought a change in me from the very start,
How you felt did on us more heavily weigh,
Truth be told it took me a while to act how I ought.
 
Now little sister is no longer a little girl,
Now you're a woman ready to strike out in the world,

The Red Pill
A narrative old as time,
An instinct as human as any,
Blown up past its prime,
Even when it fails is believed by the many.
 
Women are oppressed by men,
The men do this for their own gain,
Just walk outside and you'll hear it again,
From the nursery it's been drilled into your brain.
 
But to find who rules find questions you cannot ask,
Think on the questions that bring anger,
Those enraged will be the establishment unmasked,
The truth shall be told in protestors clangor.
 
There's a little film that's asking some questions,
There's a little director getting some hate,
Besides listening she makes no suggestions,
But the powerful think they've already decided her fate.
 
What is the question?

Literature
Noir
A smoky room,
A hard face,
Silent as a tomb,
Lacking all grace.
 
A soft perfume,
A tender cry,
An impending doom,
A woman's lie.
 
When the screen is white and black,
And this man and woman meet,
Tragedy we shall not lack,
Whether it's death or ruin will one of them greet.
 
 
Read The Maltese Falcon.  Just do it.

Blowback
Blowback,
They say we earned our crimson stains,
They say it's retribution for the pains,
Caused by colonies and empire,
The West must deserve this fire,
Blowback.
 
Blowback,
What evils did the Copts commit,
What wrongs by Philippines do bloodshed befit,
What revenge can be held against these,
Except not for the same god bending their knees,
Blowback?

Diabolical
I came about a strange pair of spectacles
Which with even my poor eyes could pierce,
Into the realm of diabolicals,
And their war with angels and men fierce.
 
I spied on a friends shoulder a blue little fiend,
Working evils against the man's very soul,
He couldn't be damned with conscience daily cleaned,
So little devil endeavored to make his heart misery full.
 
Little lies like poison flowed like poison into his ear,
Distorted half-truths make them easy to believe,
The evil thing showed his eyes things to fear,
And labored that no hope he'd receive.
 
Quite magnificent a warrior is this friend,
He staves them off with his pen,
Drawing funny stories from beginning to end,
He draws lines to put the demon in its pen.
 
Theses spectacles show not from whence the laughter comes,
But it lifts not just my friend's spirits high,
His strips raise laughter beating lake war drums,
And all around him cage their fiends so wry.

Literature
Art
Sometimes an image is what we need,
Sometimes words fail those who'd speak,
Sometimes color line and form say it best,
Sometimes we must speak in deed,
Sometimes we use fiction to at truth peek,
Sometimes art to what we need to say can lead.
 
The truth is we look back at childhood through rosy lens,
The truth is that's not an honest look,
The truth is more than warm emotion,
The truth is shown by an artist's pens,
The truth is we had fears that our souls shook,
The truth is childhood has the depth of an ocean.
 
The truth is that hubris has a cost,
The truth is sometimes you have to fall to climb,
The truth is even the fallen can teach,
The truth is the way forward is never lost,
The truth is shown in pixels in good time,
The truth is the mighty must also upward reach.
 
The truth is mental illness isn't fun,
The truth is it's not a badge of honor,
The truth is perpetual struggle inside,
The truth is it's often never won,
The truth is shown in precise line and color,

ChrisXLaci
She lives in the public eye,
She fell for a guy,
But her former fans say fie,
And break them up they'll try,
They'll harass and loudly cry,
He's politically opposed and not an ally,
So for putting toe out of line they tell her die,
They rope her family in and say she'll fry,
There's more to life than politics they'll deny,
Because listening is something they refuse to try.

Gosh, I always feel quite the fool talking about myself...
Hello Interwebs! I'm an amature novilist and poet with an aptitude for character creation. I love to read, write, hike, backpack, fish, and converse, along with many other things as well. If I could live in the woods sustained by the prowess of my pen alone, I would in half a heartbeat. I tend to lean toward introverted, but the anonymity of the Internet makes me unusually outgoing (for me anyhow,) so please excuse me if I annoy you. Also I'm from California.

Individuals choosing to help one another,

I shall be bound to others only by choice,

And those who sharpen me I call brother,

And none would say to quiet my voice.

Outside

Belonging to a group can be a powerful thing, both for good or ill.  To my thinking, if that membership comes at the cost of your individuality, then it is defiantly for ill.  To sacrifice yourself on the altar of the group is to lose your honesty, your integrity, your agency, your very soul.  This is unacceptable.  It is literally impossible for you to be a good person without these things.  The path of virtue is a difficult one, that I myself am not very far along in my estimation, but I can say for certain that every virtue requires courage, so far as I have experienced.  Leaving the cult is frightening.  I know.

The attack in Finsbury Park was an act of unconscionable evil.  The is no excuse for the use of violence to push your political agenda.  Not for the commie bastards.  Not for the national socialist idiots.  Not for libertarians.  Not for classical liberals.  Not for progressives.  Not for Christians.  Not for Sikhs.  Not for Taoists.  Not for Buddhists.  Not for Atheists.  Not for Muslims.  Not for anybody.  Period.  No exceptions.  End of discussion.  Don't be a moron.  That being said, I want equal treatment for all terrorist murderous scum.  They are the scum of the Earth, no matter what ideology they decided to push with violence, and are obviously not a reflection of the whole.  I for one am certainly glad that there are warning against Anglophobia in the wake of this disgusting murder.

Hey refield, what's with those links every day?

Well there, beloved but unbelievably lazy watcher, if you took the fraction of a second to actually click one, you'd know!  But since you're lazy, and I love you, I'll tell you what's up.  I want to go pro, and since you poor interweb hobos have no muns to BUY MY STUFF, I'm trying a different tactic.  (Seriously though, I bought myself a mug and it's pretty sweet, not gonna lie.)  That tactic is to open a WordPress blog!  Exciting times, I know.  What a time to be alive.  Why this and why now?  Well, because like I said, I'm not getting revenue from RedBubble, and I want to do this full time and stop looking for a real job.  You might be sitting there on your beanbag chair sipping on cool water thinking, "That's all fantastarificerful refield, but I don't see how that's relevant to me."  See that's where your're wrong bucko!  You see, you, yes you, can help me avoid the job market!  How?  Fantastic question, beloved watcher who is probably good looking.  I have the best looking watchers, the best.  Just tremendously pretty.  The dudes too.  The answer is, CLICK THE GOSH DARNED LINKS!!!!!!!!  You see, if I can get the same traffic on my new blog as I do here, I can monetize it!  Woot!  But that's just the beginning.  See, I'll need your very attractive fingers to support me in a way you haven't before, but they can do it because they're not just pretty.  They know what they're doing too.  What would really help me out is if you would, if you enjoy my poetry or stories, feel free to share them on other social media platforms.

So that's what's up with the links, I really hope you fantastic, pretty, smart, and stronk watchers will help me.  Just know that I love you all even if you don't help and are too lazy to click a couple of links.

Commissiouns.

Some things up front:
- I won't write about doing the sex. That's it, if you're looking for somebody to bring your erotica to life, look elsewhere.
- Horror and gore aren't exactly my forte, so I might give it a try, or I might not.
- If I write about children, it's going to stay innocent. Kiss on the cheek, holding hands, that sort of thing.
- Human bodies have certain functions, everybody knows what they're like, don't expect a great amount of detail
You don't have a right to my labor, but I have the right to refuse. For any reason at any time, that's how freedom works.

If you'd like to...

One of the exciting things about writing (for me anyhow,) is the possibility that one of my stories may inspire somebody. Bearing that in mind, if you want to draw one of my characters, go for it! I'd say the same for any scene from the stories, or location, or, well anything really. All I require is that you credit me as the creator, and label your work as an interpenetration, which I don't think to be much of an imposition at all. After all I am just setting rules for the use of my property. Philosophy aside, I'd love to see what anybody makes of my imaginings.

BEFORE YOU COMMENT

Hello there, before you thank me for the llama, I'd like to encourage you to be a little creative. I just might play along.
