I love building with LEGOs and have several sets.
LEGO girls smile from the table—
surfer, astronaut, superhero, queen.
They've raised yellow mugs in their own honor.
Though outnumbered by men with drills
and shovels, each girl trusts
no brick ceiling can contain her.
When I'm not looking,
when I'm sleeping, or out of the house
giving up more ground,
these girls pull their pieces together,
rise up and run, leave the kitchens undone.
