memory is agile
bending facts
into gaps
one to the other
without so much
as a wink
to acknowledge
the bears
their sharp claws
behind you
like fan dancers
with all the retellings
and revisions
shaped by time
and fashion
to my stuttering
the story
still plays true

(April 2012, line six, syllable six and seven)
