The blue towel.

I wrap, after shower, the wet blue towel over my face and head, a cocoon, and dream of monsoon, and dream until the towel dries and smells of the first rain.

I dreamt of a dream where I wrap my blue towel, wet after a shower, over my face and head, and in the dream dream of monsoon, and only when the towel dries would I come out of the dream within the dream, when it would smell of the first rain — the towel and my dreams.
