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?
