- n. Plural form of glory-hole.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Glorious (scored by Richard Ayres) finds everyone's favourite anachronist wallowing in a sweaty steampunk-influenced fantasia of gangsters and glory-holes.
The strongest action is to resist the clamor of the crowd for the booth, its cheap allure, its glory-holes for ejaculating onto the world.
"The reason the edges have that blunted look is partly because they can't be struck as sharp as they can be ground, and then being heated in the glory-holes, and again in the leers softens them down a little.
And may I go rummaging round in the garrets and glory-holes to furnish it as I like? "
