here's what came to my mind.
i thought it was about a hard worker. maybe a writer/journalist type. working everyday even in nights. he's been working there since he was a young man. "how many cents for the sleepy eyes and fingers"
"in the dark, in the silence, day by day"
"and you are old before you are young"

I really like this poem, but i'm not sure what it's about. what are mill doors? it makes me think of soldiers, going off to war, each day dying a little.
