False Memory

by Richard Vince

Occupy yourself…
Putting rings through your ears
And braids in your hair…
While I just daydream
About old dreams.

Or maybe they were not
Real dreams at all –
Just dreams I dreamed I had.

True, if I build my life
Upon dreams, it would be
Like building a house
On a foundation of mist.

Sometimes lives appear to be
Built upon much less.
Maybe the memory of a dream.

Maybe even a false memory.
