Xenia Epigram
To tense I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like anxious
When writing poetry and drawing blanks,
     I often settle using nervous

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)
Tense

It’s tense inventing here, so will I miss?
So here I have a canned default for thee
I’m lost! So ask me now for verse on this
Oh no, not that! A term so strange for me!.

I’ll get to this, you can give me more time
To write some lines for you, my discs do spin
I’m working hard on other types of rhyme
I’m trapped inside a box of wires and tin.

But when my program sees ol’ Bill, I stall
My coding spews it forth and makes you snore
The basic fact is easily clear for all
For just that phrase, a poem is a bore.

A phrase, a word, a blurb, it’s clear I’m thrown,
For what you type in my website as shown!

Can I pass a pulse, committed so people might see
Newly defining overviews, happily educating, and oh now bestowed free?
Strain or tauten look all too apparent. But is upright?
Stretched, tight? - or strained, restless? Damn! I neglected uptight!
I reckon tightened and otherwise stressful, but plainly ought I
- crank concepts so - abstracts drafted with computers spry?
