Shoes on!

Every school morning he leaves the house in the same way.
Last minute.
Black trainers squashed under his heels
Laces still done up.
Why undo them each evening only to do them up again in the morning?

Every school morning she leaves the house in the same way.
Black pumps carefully pulled on.
Plenty of time, but rushes out the door.
Laces trailing behind her.
