DescriptionOne sheet of white cotton paper, 22 x 28 cm. Title of poem is italicized, printed title case, burgundy. Poem is printed in black. The poem's three stanzas are staggered, horizontally, on the page, and each is flanked by a design, inscribed in a square, of a cowboy in a hat looking at a cigarette he is hand-rolling (from the font 'Arts & Crafts Dingbats'). The first instance of this design, flush with the left margin, is blocked in brown/gold; the second and third, flush with the right and left margins, respectively, are blocked in violet. Below poem is: ‘Richard Outram', in burgundy. On the reverse is an excerpt from Frank Kermode's The Sense of an Ending, Oxford 1967. Above the quotation is an elaborate fleuron from the font 'Printer's Ornaments Two', in red. The first two words of the excerpt are capitalized and rubricated; the remainder of the text is in black. The text begins to taper, line by line, nine lines from the end; the final line consists of a single, centred word ('mind'). Below and to either side of this final word another, smaller fleuron appears (also from 'Printer's Ornaments Two'), also in red.
