Pete is it possible you meant Mushrooms by SYLVIA PLATH:

Overnight, very
Whitely, discreetly,
Very quietly

Our toes, our noses
Take hold on the loam,
Acquire the air.

Nobody sees us,
Stops us, betrays us;
The small grains make room.

Soft fists insist on
Heaving the needles,
The leafy bedding,

Even the paving.
Our hammers, our rams,
Earless and eyeless,

Perfectly voiceless,
Widen the crannies,
Shoulder through holes. We

Diet on water,
On crumbs of shadow,
Bland-mannered, asking

Little or nothing.
So many of us!
So many of us!

We are shelves, we are
Tables, we are meek,
We are edible,

Nudgers and shovers
In spite of ourselves.
Our kind multiplies:

We shall by morning
Inherit the earth.
Our foot's in the door.

If this is the poem you read, simply type in the name of the poem, author, and CRITICISM and you should get a few sources.

NO, it is by Margaret Atwood( I know Sylvia Plath had the same name for one of her poems) but thanks for answering

Stephen, I believe Atwood wrote a "short story" with that title, but I find no evidence of a poem. I would be interested to know if she also has a poem with the same title.
