She was Earth Science,
he, Astronomy.
She was as easy
as he was hard,
for she was the only world she knew,
even as he was everything else.

He was Math Lab,
she, Writing Lab.
She liked to make her case
by pointing out the existence
of word problems,
even as he liked to make his
by saying that the words
were the problem.

She’d graduated from the University of Strunk & White,
& he, from the School of Hard Knocks.
He taught her how to defend herself
even as she taught him how to present himself.
