Some Opposites

What is the opposite of riot?
It’s lots of people keeping quiet.

The opposite of doughnut? Wait
A minute while I meditate.
This isn’t easy. Ah, I’ve found it!
A cookie with a hole around it.

What is the opposite of two?
A lonely me, a lonely you.

The opposite of a cloud could be
A white reflection on the sea,
Or a huge blueness in the air,
Caused by a cloud's not being there.

The opposite of opposite?
That’s much too difficult. I quit.
