Paddle Ball With Mum

Why the paddle ball cover art?
“Our relationship became a game of paddle ball—I was the flat paddle, holding still, hoping to connect; she was the red bouncing ball avoiding contact with every sporadic movement, yet attached by an elastic string known as motherhood.”
The type (Zipper) is the same used on the album cover for David Bowie's Hunky Dory, appropriately.
