The Secret Life of Plants (A Cento) by Linda Russo

Russo - Cento - Secretlifeofplants

appeared in Horse Less Review (10, winter/spring 2012)

Poet Linda Russo from Washington State, whom I had the pleasure of meeting at both the Convergence on Poetics in Bothell, WA and the conference on ecopoetics at Berkeley this year, shared this great poem with the PIP.

It shouts back to The Secret Life of Plants, and forward, in its reference to “redistributed chaos” to algorithmic botany and The Algorithmic Beauty of Plants, both books that would be in the Plant Intelligence Project’s canon, if such a canon existed.

It’s from her current ms-in-progress. Thanks Linda!
