  3. Mermaid Body - Joel Harlow

    I found it there, limb reaching for me. It was coughing, and its scales and tail seemed dry, the decay spreading throughout the length of it. I hadn’t ever seen such a creature before - the beauty of its disturbing length, the alluring webbing of its hands.

    Could I hold it, bring it to its home in the ocean, save it? Or should I watch as it suffocates on land for my pleasure?

    I dragged it to the edge of the sea, and laughed as its fingertips touched the water. It spit salt water at me, before breathing its last breath.
