Quote #4

on the Reforma did Carmen say to me,
"the air's so crisp here, it's always October,"
or was she speaking to another I've forgotten,
or did I invent it and no one said it? (253-256)

The speaker is finally remembering some girls' names, but he reflects on how tricky memory is, and how sometimes it's hard to tell whether a memory we hold dear ever even happened. Either that or he's a pathological liar.
