Textbook

How sad it is to have gotten to the point

Where your name seems more abstract to me

Than the terms I come across in textbooks.

I never thought I would have to pore over

The words you say as if I forgot to take notes,

That the combination of letters and sounds

Resembling all that you are could look

So foreign on the page in front of me.
