Spreading Dogbane

It may really be a wildflower,
It may really be a wildflower,
but I’d bet most compulsive eaters
would agree, it’s a description
of their life now, or before Recovery.
Spreading describes how problems
once small propagate endlessly.
Dog is what you feel like,
not a manicured purebred
but a cur, a stray, dirty and despicable.
The spreading dogbane plant
is beautiful despite the name.
The compulsive eater who identifies
with the name and not the beauty
can change the image, inside and out.
The solution is Overeaters Anonymous.
