Building the Pyramid

A frigid weekend day outside,
so we stay inside
for games and crafts.

Melanie collects
all the toilet paper rolls,
puts them on the
living room floor,
announces she’s
going to stack a pyramid.

We watch her
and the growing structure
with amazement,
how this ordinary thing
can become
something grander.

We bought more
toilet paper rolls
to use, so the pyramid
wouldn’t suffer
the indignity
losing any of
its building blocks.
