Anima IX

If you like this, you should tweet about it:

We have parted before,
always with a sense
of unspoken emotion.
Able to break certain barriers,
we were always left uncertain
of where the new borders lay.
But I know better than to think this final.
This region of waters has a way of calling
all her sons & daughters home.
Such knowledge is ineffective
as a balm to sooth this burn.

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.
