That is a flatbed truck filled with red bricks

Bricks are things
you can build other things with,
like houses and shops and bridges.
You can’t build animals with bricks.
You can’t build food with bricks.
You can’t build clouds with bricks.
But you can try.
Those bricks are kind of like the blue
and green and yellow plastic bricks that live
in the soft fabric boxes under your bed.
Your bed is flat but it isn’t a truck.
But it can be.
