    The careful explosion of activity in the opening stanza is masterfully contrasted with the Lady's mesmerizing slow movements. Setting it in a Harrods Sale is a perfect choice to predispose the reader to the madness you portray - customers lined up the night before, tempers frayed, competition over goods.
    The head of a pin: nice way to gather the emotions of a lifetime into an incalculably dense instant.
    The train in the chest threw me at first, but after reading the rest of the stanza it came clear as a driving force (in this case of grief) which tore her from the reverie.
    Even without the explanation this poem is poignant and clear in its meaning.
    Well deserved win, Michael.
