I don't learn alone

We practice in entangled states
Each move you master
Forces me to counter, ensuring
We progress at
Somewhat equal rates

Your prodding feet push me along
Your triumphs
Buoy me up your
Setbacks add to my

As I forge ahead you
Keep me grounded in
Puncturing pretense,
With ruthless informality

When you level up my
Jealousy is tempered by my
("See, that move? She worked on that so long!")
Knowing that I I helped in
My own minor way

In this commensal state
We take turns to study & to teach
Proving what is possible
Demonstrating what's within our reach

We're all of us interdependent
Remember that, when your star is ascendant
