Septimus Warren Smith Takes a Walk in the Park
by Cameron Neilson
Dogs turn into people,
People turn into dogs.
Once you stumble,
Septimus wrote on the back of the place card,
Is upon you.
It is a ravenous,
And the horror of
Can’t be stopped
And what do
Dogs turned into people whisper?
They speak of things
Only in hell.
I know this
All too well.
