    I concur with the others Deborah, it's a most deserved write indeed. So many youngsters have made industry in China close to untouchable with costs. India is and will challenge them as the years progress. It's a tough stranglehold to break. Mega congrats to you. Have a wonderful Sunday >> James

    Congratulations Deborah, on your well deserved placement in the June 2009 Poetry Soup contest. I am excited for you. Your winning poem is so strong and brings to focus an American social dilemma. Our money (land, food, corporations and even people...) is going away... to foreign powers. VERY well said. I am so glad that you won with this poem. Lovingly, Dane

    I love the jaggedness and angular imagery in this. It feels like a bomb went off in your second verse and destroyed something very precious, only to be replaced by the the cookie cutter mold fitting society you and I grew up in, with a Mickey D's on every corner. This feels like you wrote it while walking the streets of Beijing, soaking it all in, the lights and herds of tourists spending their dollars on stupid trinkets. Or maybe I just read into it too much again...I do that:) Congradts again

    honestly I still think this is way more complex than my 'winner' poem. I'm not even sure what it's doing there in the number 2 spot, surrounded by all these complex masterpieces, my simple little Rondeau which Kristin actually helped me write...well there you have it, this time you get to be on Cloud 7 wise one. Sincerest congratulations on your win Deb. I hope it brought you as much joy as it did me to see us both in the top 10:)
