sensitive information is buried deep

Taking a handful of skirt, pulling this way.
Slipping a screw into the lock to prevent the bolt from sliding into position.
Returning this way, following the missing pattern on the carpet.
Echoing the sounds of birds whispering in the beams.
The volume in the room switching off.
Swishing skirt folds amplified.
A bare foot on the carpet.
A beak, opening, closing, hissing.
And then the key, sliding into the lock.
Eyes glancing at the door.
