also there just be the color black used in the story? i not find any other colors.He just describe everything dark.

And in this para

There have been no trees or drifting leaves, no stands covered in produce,
no salmon tins, but time has run away with him. His wife, he realizes, will have returned from bridge, his children gathered for supper. He also knows that, at first, they have explained his absence on a neighbour’s hospitality and gin. However, by the time he can return, annoyance will have blossomed into alarm. His safe return will, he knows from childhood and years of being locked in domestic grief, degenerate to recriminations and apology

    Recrimination means blame. She blames him and wants him to feel guilty about the things she thinks are wrong with him.

    I'm not sure about this -- but I think the man with the suitcase means he is leaving to escape this neighborhood.

    Black is the color of sadness and bad things.

    It sounds like he's depressed and feels that he can't do anything right.
