Mr. & Mrs. White


The man called Mr. White
get's in his steel grey lexus
and drives away
every morning
at 7:15
sharp
at
7:20 am
Mrs. White
departs the house
in her starched and ironed pant suit
The Whites are seperate all day long
Typing, meeting, drinking coffee
doing those important things
that make the world
go round about
but at 9pm
they
both arrive
Mr. White and Mrs. White
Throw themselves on their bed
without removing their shoes! Imagine that
They jump on their bed with their
dirty, shiny, important shoes
until they collapse
and then
they
give eachother a kiss goodnight...................................................................

  1. Ah very good tale of their day. I thought it wouldn't be very comfortable with their shoes too :-)

  2. After working those hours, what else is there but sleep?

  3. I love that they kept their shoes on because the kiss is more important than clean sheets.

  5. Oh, those Important Shoes, it reminds me of seeing a movie being filmed with Julianne Moore in it, wearing impossibly high heels that she would take off at the end of every shot and wrap her feet into big puffy booties.

  14. A kiss is far better without shoes - you need to curl your toes!
