Swift-like the way you broke my heart,
or like the way the kids grew up
the way you could down a pint, and I-a half,
or drain to the dregs a stained teacup.
Swift-like our lives which float on by
contrails in ever-changing sky.

Tonight Sarah is hosting, and has asked us to use the word ‘swift’ in our 44-word poem. I’ve had a very busy day celebrating International Women’s Day, but I couldn’t resist a trip to the bar before bed! Happy #IWD2021 everyone!
