The poem inside reads:

for you women

sweet sweet women, with herbs
and baby lettuces in your gardens,
an offering of cucumber plants
and basil stalks, while outside
sirens blare. if the lettuces can hear,
they don’t seem to mind. the
cucumbers stay crisp and sweet.
come lay by the grasses, by the tree root
on your small patch of earth, come hear
the hum and buzz of life moving around us.
