Donald Hall: “The Factory”


The Factory

amThat the belts move
among grease

onis the sun which stands
on a farmer.

ofThe air is a chaff
of tiny gaskets.

Donald Hall is the author of more than two dozen of books of poetry, most recently The Selected Poems of Donald Hall. This poem first appeared in the Winter 1960-1961 issue of Poetry Northwest.
