Quandary Resolution 1840
cozen, peristalsis, sigmoid, teem
As soon as I shared one of my hand-picked mushrooms (just a humble champignon, I think) with the teeming goose population at Fool's Pond, I did suspect my eyes were cozening me, but it's true: the many birds took flight at once, assuming a great sigmoid formation and, I do not lie, sending waves of contraction through the line of their giant, ethereal S – a most perfect aerial rendition of peristalsis that was only marred for me as a spectator when the byproducts started to land.
