Do you mind explaining what exactly it's about?

Of course. It's about someone with OCD who is compulsively washing their hands.

Want me to go into more detail...?

Do you suffer from this compulsion?

To a lesser degree, yes. I usually wash my hands between one and four times, depending on my perception of how 'dirty' they are.

My right hand usually starts to dry out at this time of year due to the lower humidity. The poem references and exaggerates that aspect of my hand washing.
