I will know them by the print of their lips
not the propaganda they speak
a language informed as landscape
stone drinking sun
tranquil belly to the ground
listening to aquifers confess
we were countries in waiting
visited by austere tracks
edified by the stalwart rover
& the history they embraced

It is printed on cream-coloured paper, covered in a matt laminate for protection and assembled by hand with red string and a wooden peg. It comes in a glass test tube, 20mm x 150mm with a black stopper.
