Poster has a background of different shades of blue. A white oval to the left has brown text that reads "only a myth...only a Bantu female, born on expited pass of an unwed mother, abandoned at the railway station naked, in a shoebox to die. only an unwanted mouth, premature in pain, screams weakening without foodm penniless to survive. only a nameless kafit classified Xhosa assigned a mythic homeland, by Piet Botha. made, with official paper a numbered subspecies. only an olf domestic, blind in one eye dressed in blankets and rags, from sunrise to twilight the white madams' Ivy is a good girl. only a dreamer off-duty, weilding a knife to carve out hate, drain the fastening whites fill, the ancestors cup with hope for blood love." A hand reaching from the top right of the poster reaches into the oval holding a knife, which separates the text. Below the knife is the artist's dedication.
