the tank top

"As they enter the water together,  she thinks of the tank top left behind on the sand, drawing in the sun and heat. Later she will wear the tank top into the water, and observe the almost too interesting way the water inundates the fabric, transforming its nature as it now clings and reveals, and she will think that it is a complete, if imperfect, metaphor for love."
--A passage in a book in a dream I had this morning. Weirdly, I then had another dream about transcribing this quote from the previous dream, but at my grandma's old house. Then I got up and transcribed it for real, though there's always some give and take with the half-melted dream memory and the conscious desire to make a good quote.
