What is this place? Is that a belt buckle? I hope that it is.
I really hope that it is.
A fine buckle, large. Workable.
With buckles like this around, fine buckles, gleaming, it doesn’t seem such a bad place.
It’s a nice buckle, that’s all I’m saying. A good buckle.
That’s all I’m saying.
You still with me?
Do you even begin to understand what’s happening here? The significance of it? Not just globally, but historically? (Nov. 1922 — ring any belts?) I just wish I was a part of it. The re-balancing. I think I’d have something to add. A new hole, maybe. But I’m just here with my buckle.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s a nice buckle. But I kind of miss the Ottomans.
