"Dr. Ink" by Eric Wayne Flynn

Updated on April 9, 2014

"Dr. Ink"

Every day I visit Dr. Ink

I get to tell him exactly what I think

The cheapest form of therapy

Documenting our progress

No plush leather couch

Analyzing the man

Transformed into a beast

Years and years without a feast

Stuffing himself excessively

In between the lines

Reading them

Writing them

Tiny tight ropes for thought

Balance is an act

We all are crazy


Expressionism is dead

Seems to me there ain't one damn thought in anyone's head

Mindless zombies

Going through the motions

Drinking up the potion

Snake oil from Uncle Sam's pantry

Traveling down the road in his new sports car

Overcompensating for something?

Missile envy

Military complex

Spending to create some work

In the name of progress

We digress

But ay it's tough when you got to feed tha family

John, Kim, Jose, Maria, Gustav, Tamika and Tammy

All trying to share the pot

A smoking cauldron of madness


On fire

In the zone

On my own

All alone

With Dr. Ink

      I don't know where I would be about Dr Ink. I haven't made much of a dent in the pot however and will never accumulate enough for a sports car. Hope you have better luck. Hail abstract expressionism, may it rise again!

      I agree balance is an act and there is crazy in all of us.
