No, really, there’s no option here. No choice. I need this.
It’s a rhinoceros ring. HOW DO I NOT OWN IT ALREADY.* The world is a confusing place.
*It’s not yet available for purchase, that’s why.
I already have something by J. Topolski, a gorgeous whale skeleton necklace etched in copper that I wear all the time. It isn’t like I’d buy you and keep you in a dark jewelry box, rhino. I’d wear you. I’d show you to the world.
(Sometimes my whale is diving and sometimes it is surfacing. I like to make up stories about it when I notice it. Is there a squid down there, waiting to be eaten? Did you get an A on your exam and are you about to breach in celebration?)
BACK TO RHINOS.
I want it. I also want these papier-mâché rhinos, which are hand-made of recycled materials in Port-au-Prince by Caribbean Craft, which creates jobs in Haiti.
All the rhinos. Give them to me.
