As a child I was scared of cover-girls.
I thought they'd leave the magazines
To stab me while I slept.
To minimise the chance of being stabbed
I turned them over.
If there was one on the back as well,
I was truly doomed.
My mother was a cover-girl.
I didn't know it at the time.
I am still a bit scared
Of their sharp arched eyebrows.
