Selvedge: Master, am I acrimonious?

A border, you were!
A diameter, you have been!
A margin, you are!
An incline, you will continually be!

Xenia Epigram
To selvedge I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like valance
When writing poetry and drawing blanks,
     I often settle using flounce

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

Like terminations,
they're supernumerary.
Neither dense nor slack.
Prefix to names of people,
name of an ancient weapon.

Can I cast a pulse, published so crowds might see
Newly pleasant notations, crudely educating, and oh how revealed free?
Border or fringe look all too absolute. But is salvage?
Outskirts, verge? - or boundary, trimming? Oops! I excluded selvage!
I reckon riverside and certainly kerbstone, but plainly ought I
- state meanings so - sentences written with equations spry?

Limerick
There was a young guy from Minks Drink,
And he needed a word for brink.
      Like wink wink nudge nudge?
      But then thought edge!
That literate dude from Minks Drink.
