Dull-eyed girl
Never listening
Always looking at space
You made me speak your name a hundred times
Each class
Nana Nana Nana Nana

I was surprised
When you came to me afte
And asked how to get your English
As good as my Japanese
Even more thrilled
When you jotted down everything I said
About making it part of your life
Doing something you love in English

I saw you
As if for the first time
Eyes alive
Mind a void hungry to be filled
To go out and change the world

In that instant
You were heart-achingly beautiful
And I knew I loved
My job
