Mitraigliatrice was published in Hemingway's collection, Three Stories and Ten Poems (1923), retrieved from Wikisource.
The mills of the gods grind slowly;
But this mill
Chatters in mechanical staccato.
Ugly short infantry of the mind,
Advancing over difficult terrain,
Make this Corona
Their mitrailleuse.
