Xenia Epigram
To rachis I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like linchpin
When I'm writing and drawing blanks,
     I almost settle using lynchpin

I am in search of more,
     trying to sing your praise!
It's you I very much adore,
     lacking in so many ways.

I wonder turbidity and similarly staircase, but broadly ought I
- throw meanings so - allusions drafted from equations spry?
