against memory II

Updated: Sep 6, 2020

one evening the ceiling fell into the bar,

perhaps the pool table above was too heavy

plaster fell on to the bar, the customers, their beer

the round tables with battered copper tops

the fonts of the real ale

we told ourselves we were there

we have saved this image

in a collective mind, for some of us

were definitely not there

but so convinced we could have

some have gone, some left, some return

... memory is more than the actual

imagination is more than the memory

collectively we share what could have happened, what happened

and what we think we remember
