About this poem, Joseph has written: "'Visions of Labor' draws on a number of sources. . . . During my forty years as a lawyer and law professor, I've practiced, taught, written, and lectured on labor and employment law, especially workers compensation. My poetry, essays, and prose works have from the start included issues of labor and capital, class and race. In its broadest sense, 'Visions of Labor' presents a language of labor that purposely reflects a moral vision. Among its formal-structural-rhetorical influences are Ezra Pound's 'Canto XVI'; Louis Zukofsky's 'A'-8; Allen Ginsberg's 'Wichita Vortex Sutra'; Adrienne Rich's An Atlas of the Difficult World; and Robert Hayden's '[American Journal].'"
