The Art of Memory

In Postcard Poem on February 16, 2012 at 6:04 pm

every time we remember

something     neuroscientists say

we remember the remember

until we are so far

from the actual experience

we create

an alterered reality

falling foward in time

backward in rewriting

the ending the way

we imagined it
