Reliable Memory?

Are my memories
but dreams of what
I wanted but did not receive?
or didn’t want but received anyway?

My memory is unreliable
comes and goes
incorporates new stories
into old tales
shifting history
to match my desire.

Poor memory—not a function
of old age but rather
of unfulfilled wants.
