Modeled after Jennifer L. Knox’s “The Opposite of Crunchberries”

by Laekin

From Fuck to Fuck

 

The opposite of fuck is love.

The opposite of love is, likely, racism.

The opposite of racism

is watching your white son marry someone not white

 

and crying tears of joy.

The opposite of tears is tears

in your favorite sweater

that you try to fix in desperate desperation.

 

The opposite of desperate

desperation is thinking optimistically.

The optimism opposite

is a mental illness that was cool before it was cool.

 

The opposite of hipsters is

hippies with bell bottom jeans and a tie dye shirt.

The opposite of adults

is a single child with no fucks to give.

–Laekin

P.S. This was a poem for an assignment that changed drastically. It used to make more sense.
