Lego Sword

Alexandra Davis

there’s an engine running and I

can’t stop it always twitching

fiddling my mum says and so

I keep building building anything

really like this lego sword you

don’t think of lego being life-

size and long or actually useful

but I can hold this and wield this

and I’ve put blue glass studs on

the hilt to make it beautiful like

a real sword because inside I am

a real knight but outside I am just

fake but I’m sort of pleased with

this lego sword blocks of grey on

grey see how sharp corners can

become smooth even special like

an emblem of honour or horror

of duty or death which I think

about not just in history lessons

anyway my mum says I make

everything into a weapon even

a barbie doll once but now I’ve

made this lego sword I want to

hold it always even in bed but

I must lay it down before I fall

asleep so I don’t crush it by

rolling on it in the night and

destroying it because it is

so fragile and in pieces

it has painful edges

and would be

torture to

lie on

top
