Goblin Fruit

Via Elva Undine's wonderful blog - Goblin Fruit - an amazing webzine that features "poetry of the fantastical."

Here's the beginning of "Selkie" by Maureen McQuerry...

Among the hermit crabs and necklaces of bladderack,
a woman's shape, sleek as sea washed stone, reclines,
her skin shed like water, a dark pool cupped
between sharp teeth of rock, hair thick and matted as kelp.
The selkie has risen out of the sea searching

...and here is a review from The SF Site by Neil Walsh.

Just go!
