Quandary Resolution 2019
schmeer, yardbird, chrestomathy, enspirit
Bill owned The Collected Works of William Shakespeare (the whole schmeer, including the poetry, in forty small leatherbound volumes - no anthologies, abridgements, analects, or chrestomathies for him! - which took up both the shelves in his prison cell) and he was now reading Titus Andronicus for the third time, breaking off occasionally to glance down through the barred window at the yardbirds lifting weights in the exercise pen, feeling quite enspirited and cheered up by the comparison between his chances of parole and theirs.
