And Still His Tail Wags

she asked another question
with her casual laughter
as if what he answered
could ever truly matter
yet still he rose to her
silent snap and whistle
as any trained dog would
eager for her approval
then with one comment
she made confidential
she dismissed him
as inconsequential
he turned away
broken and ignored
completely oblivious
to what he truly heard
