  1. She deftly slipped into the silent room, much to her enemy’s guarding dismay.
    The silent flick of her glimmering blade slicked down the man’s throat, and she exited as deftly as she had entered.

  2. Leaping was all she could do to properly escape. And she had, deft paws that drew her to and from the ground, grabbing and launching her in the right places, everything about were was worth moving, made for it. There would never be a way for anything to catch her.

  3. Never underestimate
    how deft my eyes can be
    and see
    that you are not the perfect one
    the one for me
    or anyone
    is it hard
    to tell a flower from
    a rock
    with no real power
    but its cold and weighty
    it belongs to

  5. The cat really was deft. Her paws allowed her to step in exactly the places that they wanted to be able to step in. It is almost like the word Delft, which isn’t a particularly ‘deft’ city, I must admit. Much more quaint.
    Deft implies a sort of delicateness, and the animal that mostly comes to mind is actually a cat. It’s a quaint prancing around. A precise, and limberly athletic pose.

  6. Another word I don’t exactly know the meaning of. So let me check it.
    Deft – flink. Always reminds me of little squirrel or rabbits hushing aorund in the garden and trees. Too deft to follow, but grat to look at.

  8. you must think you’re clever
    hiding all your evil
    in everyday speech

    ‘creamy’ vs ‘muddy’
    ‘delicate’ vs ‘rugged’
    ‘good’ vs ‘evil’

    how can i trust a language
    that has demonized my skin
    from the very beginning?

  10. His handling of the questions was deft, like a magician handling cards. His face was just so, a slight smile that, any wider, would have been smug; any smaller and it would have looked prim.

  14. Deft is hard to write about. It’s a word we don’t often use. Deftly we do. Usually in relation to fingers, it seems. His fingers deftly worked at untying the knot. I don’t know. This was hard.

  19. She had a deft hand at many things. He’d watched her for months at work. Her fingers sweeping across the keyboard, the way she twirled her stationary in her hands when she was thinking. A deft touch with her dress and her makeup. No he watched for the first time as her deft fingers undid the buttons on his shirt.

  20. Deft digits danced across the keys, clicking and clacking with a quickness that forwent quiet. He never understood why they called it hacking, a word that implied brutality rather than creeping finesse.
