Anima X

If you like this, you should tweet about it:

I wanted more than this.
I thought you & I together could smash
the fictions & frictions plaguing others.
It took me nine months to realize
we don't want the same things.
Minor satori.  A sharp kick to my eyes.
A cutting out & dusting off of my heart.
Damn.  That was the illusion.
I saw both of us clear enough
but I read the future miserably.
Two days from now, one person leaves
& a whole town becomes,
effectively, empty.

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.
