Anima II

If you like this, you should tweet about it:

You stir in the dark
pressing just a little closer.
The deep breath of your sleep
slides softly across my skin
in rhythm.
My mind quiets
as I tune to you.
Sharing this subtle intimacy
summer heat retreats &,
basking in the cool breeze of your rest
I relax, slowly slip away
into my own rhythm
& my dreams.

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.
