Poem: “The Savage Summer”

This poem is a brief departure from my normal work, which puts an emphasis on humor and grand metaphors. Instead, this poem chronicles the strange adventures I had two summers ago in Germany. I was 16 years old and experiencing a new country. I wrote most of this either while in Germany or afterwards. Only recently did I write newer material and mesh it with older lines to create this patchwork poem. Leave your thoughts below. I hope you enjoy.
