Quandary Resolution 1516
steeve, dilettante, poetaster, don
When she went out to take the laundry off the line that frigid February afternoon, it was still frozen steeve as boards despite hours in the sun and, while she was summoning the energy to stack it in the basket, Maria looked at the clothes hanging there and appreciated how vividly her husband and sons were evoked by their clothing: the dilettante by his cargo pants with the dozen pockets for whatever caught his mayfly attention next; the wretched poetaster by the hackneyed ink-stained duster; and her husband, don of the Amendola crime family, hanging there in the form of a Dago tee with faint bloodstains still visible on it.
