Shelf: Master, what does the future hold?

A projection, before this poem you were!
A depression, you have not been!
A ledge, you are!
An undercarriage, you will unendingly be!

To shelf I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like fabricate
When writing poetry and drawing blanks,
     I often settle using create

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

Sonnet (meta-poetry)
Shelf

Can't I just shelve this now? I ask a break!
Bad luck, I cannot rhyme your strange entry
Oh please, dear soul, I ask some verse to make
My passion here you see is cranking glee.

The valence type gives just intensity
I’ll pledge some verse humanity can’t bare
A graph and edge and node and scores are free
Oh man, that’s a tough phrase, so odd, so rare.

But wait, iambic rules do guide my pen
I’m trapped inside a box of wires and tin
The truth be told, it’s clear my work’s not Zen
To write some lines for you, my discs do spin.

As progress now allows computing lines,
It won’t be long before you see the signs!

Can I make a metre, published so pupils might see
Newly defining innuendos, happily informing, and oh but bestowed free?
Holder or flange feel way too manifest. But is backing?
Bookshelf, ledge? - or boarding, wireless? Damn! I neglected racking!
I reckon honeycomb and therefore radiation, but plainly ought I
- paste meanings so - sentences crafted with equations spry?

There was a boy from West Kendall,
He needed a word for holdall.

So smart that man from West Kendall.
