Review of Before by Lynn Hardaker

Review of Before by Lynn Hardaker appeared in the March 2013 issue of Niteblade.  Ms. Hardaker uses this poem to make the reader feel a yearning for what is lost when one willfully transforms into something he or she is not, in this case, a mermaid who has given up her sea form in favor of a human one.  The mermaid imagery is gorgeous--I felt like I was swimming with one.
