Lego Feminists in the Morning

Lego women proud on the shelf:

surfer, astronaut, hero, queen,

tiny mugs raised in their own honor.


Outnumbered by the men,

each one eyes the brick ceiling.

When my back is turned


and I'm giving up more ground,

these chicks pull their pieces together,

rise up and run, leave kitchens undone.
