$5 DOLLAH, $5 DOLLAH by Serena Norr


Avon is a fast-talking hustler trying to sell bags in Chinatown to a faceless boss named G. Dale, a wannabe actress, now hostess from Texas, approaches his table with a penchant for bag-smelling. Avon invites Dale to the back alley to show her custom bag. She eventually follows and ends up at a packed nightclub where they take a moment to dance. Dale, however, is distracted and wants the bag that she was promised as Avon angrily takes her to the back. With a faceless boss watching, the stakes are high for Avon to do his job and sell the bag, or face the wrath of G.
