Scumbled beige paint loosely covers the surface of the composition, allowing dark areas of masonite to break through in patchy swaths. A curved dark line swoops over the left half of the composition, taking an organic uppercase L-shape. A small horizontal dash exists just above the lower portion of the L-shape, while two short and vertical green marks of different lengths are located towards the top of the shape. To the right, a large S-shaped line, rendered with black and transparent red, snakes downwards from the top of the composition, curling over itself in a ribbon like fashion at the end of the S-shape. To the right of the S-shape is a short vertical line which resembles a lowercase I-shape when paired with the short horizontal line which exists above it.
