The bear prepares his nest
           for slumber.
People split & stack their wood,
          split & stack their wood,
& pull from summer stashes
      The hand-me-down, heirloom,
dowry, down quilts & colorful
    handwoven woolens.
The hunt & the harvest are
            serious now
as we prepare the larder for
            the harder months ahead.
& lovers draw the blankets up
                  & smile.

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.
