Modeled after Jennifer L. Knox’s “The Opposite of Crunchberries”
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.
P.S. This was a poem for an assignment that changed drastically. It used to make more sense.
