I used to interrupt

try and correct, because I was sure the story they were telling was false


because I was young

because I thought the truth was what mattered


Now,  when I hear someone telling us what happened 

I just listen and nod


It was so many years ago, 

in a place that does not exist anymore 


Now I know their memory is what is important

the accuracy of it,  hardly relevant 


Are we going to argue about the number of trees in a watercolor?
