Plot: The mermaid is known for her siren song, luring bedroom-eyed sailors to their demise. However, beneath these misguided myths are tales of escapism and healing, which Lovelace weaves throughout this empowering collection of poetry, taking you on a journey from the sea to the stars. They tried to silence her once and for all, but the mermaid’s voice returns in this one.
This is the third and final installment in Amanda Lovelace’s “Women are Some Kind of Magic” collection.
- Amanda tackles a tough topic in this one – an abusive relationship
- I don’t really understand the format
- It could feel disjointed at times
- It’s kind of just more of the same as the other two
My Thoughts: This style of poetry is so not my thing. I get taking artistic license, but having two short lines on one page just doesn’t make sense to me. I’m guessing that if it was spoken out loud as slam, it might be better. But this one was just kind of lost on me.
