The rigors, joys, and difficulties of work are examined through poetry, including the long work "Beauty" by B.H. Fairchild (shown) that was initially in his multi-award winning book The Art of the Lathe and is now in his 2014 book of new and selected works, The Blue Buick. Other poems include Susan Gubernat's "Working Class" from her book Flesh, Dorianne Laux’s “Fast Gas” from What We Carry, and "Brewery Job" by the editor of New Letters magazine Robert Stewart, who is also the author of Plumbers.
