What is the theme and some literary devices in this poem “Seeding Time” by Marilyn Cay?

 “Seeding Time” by Marilyn Cay

I dream our combine   see it coming

big and self-propelled    across a field

swallowing a forgotten swath from last fall

fast   coming so fast it begins to buck

the pick-up reaching into the sky   then

catching dirt on its way down    nearing

the hedge  it doesn’t slow or stop or veer

                                 it punches

                                 a hole

                        through five rows of trees

lurches through the yard my husband slumped at the wheel

the combine finally stops far out in another field

the one he’s hell-bent to finish seeding if it kills him
