Thief of Memories
Fantasies create false memories,
Dreams make the mind a thief.
Exhibit A, this photo of mine,
Under the flag of the Maple Leaf.
It’s true I was in Victoria,
Touching the Rolls Royce at the time…
Truth was, I’m not Canadian;
The car and country were not mine.
Still, I love this photograph,
Albeit the phony self-esteem…
How empty would a lifetime be
If we were denied the right to dream?
