LEGO Feminists

I love building with LEGOs and have several sets.

LEGO Feminists


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.
