Defending Home in What If I’m a Merfolk?

One of the themes that runs through a number of the pieces in What If I’m a Merfolk? is the idea of merfolk defending their home. While the ocean is vast and has plenty of hiding places for creatures like merfolk, it’s still important to them to defend their territory from things like incursions of humans who might want to exploit or harm the merfolk there.

Poems in What If I’m a Merfolk? like “How the Sea Floor Becomes an Ossuary” explore this theme directly, and it flits through other poems as well, as the merfolk live out their lives beneath the waves.
