If you like this, you should tweet about it:

Bees as thick as honey
on the blossoms of the apple,
three & four deep to each flower.

It must taste sweet.

Mumbling a harmony
they have built their nest
near blossoms now sonorous
with the hymn of their wings.

Even with the windows closed
the sound of their industry
shakes my shack,
through the walls.

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.
