Gender Play

Ken cavorts shamelessly with GI Joe,
resplendent in pumps and glittered gown.

Barbie and Midge strut in khaki and leather,
flowing locks butch cut into submission.

The boys dash about the room in a pink jeep;
the girls march off to a Lincoln Log camp.

The Erector Set fort flies a rainbow flag.
Mom peers through the Lego fence, disoriented.
