Abandoned Block Factory, Arkansas

Elizabeth Lindsey Rogers

About This Poem


"In 2016, when I first moved to Arkansas, I became fascinated with the abandoned concrete block factory in my neighborhood. I recently brought some of my students there, and we all wrote poems in response to the site. This poem is also an homage to Linda Gregg's 'Elegance,' with my first few lines echoing hers."
—Elizabeth Lindsey Rogers
