Anti-This, Anti-That— Pro-Nothing

Have your preferences, but state your likes—

Not your dislikes

This is something I really struggle with.

I try to rephrase and polish but

I just can’t— I am using the colors

In my crayon set and they are all

Black, brown and red.

Some older person I’m friends with was like

“You young people

Only bond by complaining”

She isn’t wrong.

Our movements are led by

Ideas on what we shouldn’t be

Anti- this, anti-that

Pro-nothing

Pro-burn it all down

Pro-shame

Pro-hate

Pro-the difference between you and me

Pro-contempt and

Pro-trolling

Pro-fat shaming

Even the pro-choice movement is dying.

At what point do we become

The generation of negativity

The generation of

“Meh—at least it’s not me”
