Showy: Master, who will I become?

Discreet, without exception, you never were!
Polite, you have not been!
Ostentatious, you are!
Unambiguous, you will constantly be!

Xenia Epigram
To showy I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like ostentatious
When I'm writing and drawing blanks,
     I almost settle using pretentious

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

Just like the gaudies,
they're flamboyantly garish.
Neither pure nor mild!
A flash, flashing or sparkle.
Being bumptious or snooty.

Sonnet (meta-poetry)
Showy

What’s that you type in my website as shown?
To churn such verse a billion times a day
A phrase, a word, a blurb, it’s shown I’m thrown
I keep all waiting long, I hope you stay.

The valence type gives just intensity
It’s hard inventing it, for I will miss
A graph and edge and node and scores are free
I’m lost! So ask me now for verse on this.

But pounding beats of drives do spin this verse
An algorithm tight and neat I need
My random words just might involve much worse
This meter sings, but lacks some content speed.

So I will bore you now, just wait and find,
As random thoughts my words can grate, can grind!

Can I show a poesy, disclosed so people might see
Newly exalting summaries, broadly informing, and oh how conveyed free?
Garish or flashy feel all too manifest. But is blaring?
Brilliant, gaudy? - or gorgeous, splendid? Damn! I deserted flaring!
I reason grandiose and therefore screaming, but rightly ought I
- speak concepts so - allusions written with equations spry?

There was a dude from Mount Snowy,
He needed a word for showy.

So smart that man from Mount Snowy.
