This is a broadside with the poem "Ego Tripping" signed by the author. Shaped as a long narrow rectangle, the broadside has the title in large letters along the left margin. At the base of the title is an image of the author. Wearing dark clothing, and shown in profile, she crouches with her elbows on her knees and turns her head towards the viewer. Across the top margin are four small images of four different women. Running down the length of the broadside is the poem's text. At the bottom of the text is the author's signature, done by hand in pen.
