Ana = up, on, above, throughout. Cata = down, back, under, lower. Lysis = the breakdown of a cell by mechanisms that compromise its integrity. Opposite of analysis is catalysis, by this.
"In reality (theory)" the opposite is synthesis. Syn/sym = together, with, along. Lysistrata. -lyst and list. Syn and Sin, Sym and Sim.
Opposite of analogy “in reality” is syllogy syllogism (Greek syn + logismos -> syllogismos). But a possible opposite could be catalogy. Slippage between prefixes ana- and a(n)- [not, without].
We called our disorder ‘ana’ in the livejournal groups and chatrooms. An-orexis: without-desire. Ana-orexis, though: above, on, or throughout desire. Ana-tomy: up-incision. Cut up. Cata-tomy: down-incision. Cut down. Catatonic. Anatonic.
dawn knuckle petal spit ghost
clutching her damp airplane pillow
your mom begins conducting the waves
as if it was her duty, next to her is some lady
your mother’s hair so short cause she cuts it every day
peeing in the water she loves her birth control
they are listening to eminem your mother is loving it
finally hearing the ocean in her headphones
across the hall walls sync together like a cootie catcher
lovers pulling away their hands
"in shrink wrap breath and ghost-shaped arrows"
you stick your hand inside your sandwich
something was left out the corner of the eye
and not a smile’s wrinkle
the more it feels lost
