In the wink of an eye,
she blinked, for that
is how things are done.

At the drop of a hat,
her beret flew away,
and that’s how things
are done.

At a moment’s notice,
she arrived at Now,
it’s done that way.

In the nick of time,
her heart skipped a second,
along the way.

The spirit of the times,
she’s been whisked to a new life,
another day.
