the drive took over an hour

navigating unfamiliar parts

of the motorway network

but when we arrived

there was more than one long stay car park.

it’s a blue Polo with roof bars

but by the streetlights they all look the same to me.

then we see him loitering

he waves unobtrusively from the roadside

indicating the spot.

two anonymous cars parked adjacent

in the damp twilight

the dumpy and silent girlfriend

stands watching as

a large box is transferred from one boot

to another.

negotiations are made

money swiftly changes hands

no handshake

just a nod of acknowledgement.

doors slam

lights and radio on

as we pull away.

she smiles.

that was such a bargain.
