Initiation

three pensee

Break room
boss’s nephew  -
You’re using  my favorite mug.
I’m sorry, it wasn’t labeled.
(I lie, his cup, my eye.)

Garage
boss’s nephew -
Your car’s in my uncle’s spot. 
How was I to know which was his?
(I cough,  the prig,  buzz  off.)

Taken
I’ve just been had.
Boss’s nephew takes care of
my welcome to the factory.
(I smile!  Just wait awhile.)
