These poems are my attempt to acquire a poetics apt in shape and diction to a particular industrial environment. I wanted to respond to certain factory conditions: sensory saturation, procedural monotony, proprietal language, the deceptive temporalities created by the movement loops of manual production and the alternately overlapped and repelling identity orientations created by working collectively as part of a physical function. The poems also record my pleasure and frustration both in this setting and in the people I shared it with.
