Twisting: Master, who will I become?

A nothingness, before time you were!
A face, you have not been!
A smile, you are not!
A pigtail, you will always be!

Xenia Epigram
Please take from me this page,
     focussing on the term twisting
Used by many a linguist sage,
     seeking a term for wresting

Just wait a bit and you may find,
     better than any an anagram,
when coders have more time,
     a much better fitting epigram.

Waka
Like convexities,
they're unjustifiable.
Not now adequate!
A type of verse for singing,
wound or wrapped around something.

Sonnet (meta-poetry)
Twisting

An algorithm tight and neat I need?
To write some lines for you, my discs do spin
This meter sings, but lacks some content speed
I’m trapped inside a box of wires and tin.

I pass my life to make more time to write
Oh life is long for me, so I won’t quit
In finding just the verse for your delight
Requests like this do trip me, I admit.

But twisting quickly, making poets wince
A phrase, a word, a blurb, it’s clear I’m thrown
These scrambled lines don’t hide my ignorance
For what you type in my website as shown.

The pounding beat of drives did spin this verse,
My random words just might involve much worse!

Change direction,
fire extinguisher equipment.
Change direction,

Variety entertainment,

Change direction.

Pi (π)
Can I cast a metre, proclaimed so people might see
Newly didactic innuendos, freshly nurturing, and oh but provided free?
Lining or twists feel all too apparent. But is minding?
Spraining, twist? - or screwing, tricking? Damn! I deserted winding!
I wonder threading and otherwise torturing, but frankly ought I
- paste concepts so - summaries fetched with computers spry?

Limerick
There was a young gal from The Priest,
And she wanted a word for wriest.
      Like tin roof's rusted?
      But then thought twisted!
So smart that lady from The Priest.
