His suit that morning said, “I don’t appreciate
this constant coming and going of you.”
“Let us just make it to the breakfast table
and then we can argue about what comes next,”
the man answered the suit.
During breakfast the suit ate
more than usual and made the man
feel uncomfortable in the slacks.
“Let me guess. Now we get in the car
and drive to work and park and
feel sad again, sad always,” the man said.
“I’m never sad,” said the suit, happy and full.
“My job is simple, I am the gray suit
that goes on a man that goes to work.”
Then, quite unexpectedly,
the man began to take the suit off,
(at a most inopportune moment!)
The suit thought about calling the police
but instead, it began to cry like the child it was.
Everyone could hear it crying, but they thought
it was the sound of a machine.
