From Dreams to Visions

If you like this, you should tweet about it:

You wake me
from dreams to visions
with your tongue
your solar eyes
and slender hands.
You wake the god
that slumbered deep
in the body
rousing power to play
upon the spine
like lightning.

My whole life becomes a muscle
under your hands
an engine for getting things done
in this world
or any other.

This love explains
why the heart is
the strongest muscle of the body
moving the fluid
that moves this life,
moving spirit, moving blood.
Yes, this power, this strength
this creation
moves me.

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.
