Hush-Hush

I succeed in talking to people. I'm chatty, conversational. People reveal themselves to me. They tell me their secrets. I have a trusting face. That's what one elderly woman told me recently. I feel like I can tell you things, she said. I'm in love with my husband's best friend and I seriously thought about poisoning my husband so we could be together, she said, as the subway doors closed between us. She waved bye to me and mouthed the words, Thanks!
