I'm putting together some collages for a show in January which are loosely based around a Theodore Roethke poem, Forcing House, from a collection of poems from 1948- THE LOST SON AND OTHER POEMS.

FORCING HOUSE

Vines tougher than wrists
And rubbery shoots,
Scums, mildews, smuts along stems,
Great cannas or delicate cyclamen tips,-
All pulse with the knocking pipes
That drip and sweat,
Sweat and drip,
Swelling the roots with steam and stench,
Shooting up lime and dung and ground bones,-
Fifty summers in motion at once,
As the live heat billows from pipes and pots.

Theodore Roethke.
