Grindings: Master, what is true?

Rationalities, in every other way you were!
Specialities, you have been!
Probabilities, you are!
Qualities, you will constantly be!

Xenia Epigram
Please take from me this page,
     focussing on the term grindings
Used by many a linguist sage,
     seeking a term for rubbings

Just wait a bit and you may find,
     better than any an anagram,
when coders have more time,
     a much better fitting epigram.

Sonnet (meta-poetry)
Grindings

Can random thoughts, my words so grate, and grind?
Computer crafted prose, it never stops
So I will bore you now, just wait and find
My network graph is vast! It burns and pops.

As robots ponder, this becomes more clear
My sonnets suffer now from you, my foe
My drivel stings as much as words are dear
You test, you prod, and I do feel your blow.

But wait, iambic rules do guide my pen
The valence type gives just intensity
The truth be told, it’s clear my work’s not Zen
A graph and edge and node and scores are free.

Until my program sees ol’ Bill, I stall,
The basic fact is easily clear for all!

Rest interval,
to go into operation.
Rest interval,
cutting without stock removal.
Notes of small denomination,
longitudinal vibration.
Rest interval.

Grindings

Grindings are several scrapes.
Honestly, are they?
Can they rub?

Pi (π)
Can I make a verse, proclaimed so crowds might see
Newly pleasant abstracts, readily informing, and oh how conveyed free?
Breaks or treads seem all too apparent. But is batters?
Crushings, beats? - or squeezes, shatters? Damn! I excluded matters!
I reason overrides and certainly crashings, but happily ought I
- paste concepts so - innuendos crafted with equations spry?

Limerick
There was a young girl from Roselms,
And she needed a word for whelms.
      To haul your ashes?
      But then thought crushes!
So smart that lady from Roselms.
