The Office: season 3, episode 16, time 16:38

By Isabella Melians:

(zoom in on bat)

his breaths echo through the mask

"magic time,"

he says

a war-cry,

he charges loudly,

bag held brashly in his hand

anxious fluttering,

a chittering beast,

searching for escape

she screams

as the bag engulfs her head,

writhing beast within

"my hair!'

she cries

he grunts in response:

"hold still, woman"

another scream

and she is free

a look of disgust paints her face

it sits in plastic,

trapped, confined

wings long for open air

he glances back,

stern look in eye

"You're welcome."
