Literature
Red Tape and Iron Wills
My spine is reinforced steel
And my will is iron.
I must sharpen my wits
On the grit of the world’s ignorance,
And parry it’s dull insults with
A tongue with an edge like a razor.
 
I traded my safety, my security and my relationship
For a new set of pronouns.
But when the follicles frolic
The “Sir’s” swarm like bees,
They buzz and sting, leaving me
Feeling swollen and
No quantity of Epinephrine will help me to breath.
 
And I am carded when I use the ladies room,
By Gestapo pigs with Roaming hangs,
Waving Ferris bands as they
Demand that I show them my papers.
 
I am told I have the freedom to do
As someone else would prefer I live my life,
To live in the cage of their ever shrinking minds.
 
I am strangled by red tape at every turn,
Empty Spools litter the shaky ground
Where I walk, they hold me in place,
Where I too am unmoved.
Letters and court orders, doctors and notaries,
Waitlists and days on end at the DPS, DMV, Social Security,

Literature
Seasons
His Hands slow as glaciers, a shiver up her spine, their eyes met in understanding, a moment frozen in time.
Her arms around his neck, his hands under her hips, they could smell the summer air, as they tasted the other’s lips.
His eyes the color of autumn, hers a chilled winter blue, they shared a look of mischief, and in that moment they knew.
As her voice cracked so did his resolve, they made love until winter when the world would dissolve; two hearts in the snow, pulsing hot and heavy wearing out the leaf springs in the bed of his cherry-red Chevy

Interests
Just got a fat shipment of fresh business cards, while trying to remedy a color issue (the first batch of 250 was  too dark with foil printed on the front and text in black) so I lightened the color of the image and changed the text to red, but without the foil to to contrast the text again bled into the background, so I have 1000 business cards that don't look so good on the front but the back turned out perfectly I guess I could always sponge the existing front with black ink and then the image on the back would become the front, since it has all the prevalent information on it, the front just has my devil logo and says 'Tohper Baker, Artist at Large". On the bright side Vistaprint says they'll refund me the cost of that portion of my order with a site credit so I think I'll try again this time using green to compliment the red of the print so that my text will stand out. If you design your own business cards using their site keep in mind that using their editing program you'll see a 40% difference in contrast reduced to like 5% when the actual print comes in, so in my case lighter red on top of dark red makes it look washed out.
