Legos by Emilie Chau

I could build you a mansion
marble tiles, crystal chandeliers, sliding walls, and a pool
So you can drink Martinis while dipping your feet
in lukewarm water that glistens in the pale light of a crescent moon

I could construct a big enough blanket
to keep you safe from the frigid nature of the world
to protect your exposed skin
from the severe winds of our chaotic surroundings
Though you may need to sacrifice comfort
due to the hard surfaces and jagged edges

I could recreate a story
where you play the protagonist and
I am your trusty sidekick
We would go on the craziest adventures and
you would never wonder, what if
Fiction is reality when you’re dealing with bricks or

I could hold you close to me and
make you a cup of coffee at dawn to
keep you warm in our unheated home and
we could forget the fantasies
Because together is enough
