Anima I

If you like this, you should tweet about it:

When our cheeks touched
as we hugged goodbye
some of your scent rubbed off
& onto my skin.
Later, waiting for the bus
I could smell you
if I kept my right cheek to the wind.
It was sweet
& kept me from pacing.

John T. Unger poet

I'm best known as an artist and designer. Relaxing makes me tense, so I tend to put in a lot of hours on diverse projects.

Before becoming a visual artist, I spent 15 years as a poet. I studied poetry at Interlochen Arts Academy, Naropa, Stone Circle and on the streets. I performed my work for years at Stone Circle, solo shows, poetry readings, and at Lollapalooza in 1996.

I still write poems, but only if I can make them fit the constraints ofTwitter.
