When I was a child I looked in the mirror and saw a man, I didn’t recognise,
He was a sailor, and he was blonde,
I am neither of those things,
I was a child with a curly brown head.
Once, at uni, I had to get out of the bath because I’d imagined laying on the back of a shark too vividly and I felt it’s silver skin and saw it’s vile mass thrashing on the bathroom floor.
