Ascension To Alchemist: II

If you like this, you should tweet about it:

When the time is right
I will take the world
by grace & storm.
Nobody will ever know
I've done this.
Nothing external will change.
    It is only that
I will no longer question destiny.
The three wyrd sisters will speak to me
laying aside their spinning & snipping
& stilling the shuttle in the loom
should I stop by.
   All roads go where they are going
but I will choose when & where I walk.
Whether it be deer-path, highway or open field
I will not be bound by the shoulders & gullys
that mark accepted trails.
   It is not that Mystery will cease.
She will lay down beside me.
    We will wed within.
The world in which I walk
  will walk within me.
All six senses will sing
        wild & simple tunes of pleasure
Doors will open to my gaze
             like windows.

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.
