Dishing the dirt

She looks around the bar
silent
surly
suspicious.

She sits
by the man
behind the whisky
and the worn out suit.

A large brown envelope
interests him …

They talk …

disagree –
argue –

and agree.

Smug and satisfied
she counts his money.

He smiles …
tomorrow’s headline
will be –
          SENSATIONAL!
