OCD Poetry

O see the O Seeds Thee by Omer Wissman

Five is doom three a cure-all

Binging to obesity Charmed

Hate-watching Party of Five

And loving The Wire’s S1E5

Where in the dealers’ pager code

Five equaled zero and zero five

Coalesced into endless protecting

By numbers my 3 beloved nieces

As in always taking three pills

Of overdosage OCD medication
