Absinth: Master, am I cordial?

A captain, you will constantly be!

Xenia Epigram
To absinth I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like wormwood
When writing poetry and drawing blanks,
     I often settle using southernwood

I have been seaching ever more,
     hoping again to sing your praise.
For words, I very much adore,
     lacking me in several ways.

Can I make a pulse, proclaimed so beings might see
Fully pleasant overviews, briefly nurturing, and oh how conveyed free?
Quicks or stales feel way too manifest. But is flashes?
Jaundiced, acids? - or mordants, gratings? Darn! I deserted slashes!
I reckon spankings and therefore grindings, but rightly ought I
- state concepts so - notations written from equations spry?
