I apologize for the late start today, but I’m on vacation. So I got up early and worked a little on a new chapbook before taking the boys (all four of them) out to the park.
Anyway, for this week’s prompt, write an opposites poem. The opposites could be polar opposites, opposing opinions, or the opposite of whatever is expected. Feel free to play opposite day for the next week.
Here’s my attempt:
There are times I feel like I’ve done
everything I can do. Checked
the oil level and air pressure
in the tires. Changed the wiper
blades. Washed the interior and
exterior. But then a noise
reminds me that I’ve forgotten
to change the transmission fluid–
making everything nothing.
