Straight Shooting

He stood, dumbstruck
by her question
Her question
that shouldn’t need asking

You tell, stupid
Before the question gets asked,
You. Tell.

Pieces fell,
around his feet
as he pondered
and found nothing

words and thoughts
impotent
in the face
of a truth
he never shared

I’m sorry
he says
too late to matter
