For a Kelpie

by Ariel Johnson

I said to Margaret,
In my jealousy,
May your husband leave you
For a kelpie.

 And sure enough,
That very spring,
Margaret's husband David
Left her for a beautiful
Black haired,
Green skinned
Horse woman
Who lived by the river,
And carried him down to be
Her prince for a while,
Before she ate him.
