The Little Mermaid
(Or, How to Find Love Underwater)
J. M. Farkas
A blackout poetry version of the classic fairy tale "The Little Mermaid," offering a new, spare, and lovely tale of empowerment, body acceptance, and knowing where you belong
You know the story of the Little Mermaid—the girl who traded her tail for legs, her beloved sea for sand, to land the prince. Or do you? In this refreshingly subversive blackout poetry version of the classic fairy tale, a new and empowering message emerges from the depths: our girl pines for land and that prince, but this daughter of water discovers she loves the sea and her body—mermaid tail and all—more.
