All the teeth in my head are exploding
wet firecrackers finally going off
hunks of old lead and decay and
untouched summer girls in the park
down the hatch with a river of bourbon
thank god for bourbon
the true ones
drink 4 gallons of bourbon
a day in their minds
to become Davy Crockett
King of the Wild Frontier
who fought Mexico
16 corpses surrounding his corpse
his knife in all of them.

My summer has been like this.
