A white horizontal poster with a colorful mosaic at the top features a poem titled Wilderness, by Lorine Niedecker.


You are the man
You are my other country
and I find it hard going

You are the prickly pear
You are the sudden violent storm

the torrent to raise the river
to float the wounded doe
