not the kits, they didn’t have those

when we were kids. Just bricks,

two by four, two by two, one by two, one;

red, blue, green, yellow, white, black.

With bricks you can build anything.


Grey plates for floor or foundation

discs for wheels. Longer pieces,

two by eight, two by sixteen.

Thin plates for roofs, in various colors.

We learned to build Lego worlds.


We played the ones were people, having

adventures in the landscapes we built.

I always wanted to be the black one.

My brother let me have my choice

and we learned to build everything—

including ourselves—from Lego.
