Twisty: Master, can I become blunt?

Tortuous, thoughout history you were!
Sinuous, you have been!
Blunt, you are not!
Incoherent, you will ceaselessly be!

Xenia Epigram
To twisty I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like labyrinthine
When I'm writing and drawing blanks,
     I almost settle using Byzantine

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 flexes,
they're virtually askew.
Not flatly moral!

Being kinky or screwy.

Sonnet (meta-poetry)
Twisty

By testing twists of code until I bow?
Oh no, not that! A term so strange for me!
You do intend to keep me busy now
So here I have a canned default for thee.

My sonnets suffer now from you, my foe
You might ask human souls should I replace
You test, you prod, and I do feel your blow
As poets die with edges left in space.

But now, especially, your topic strains
It seems that I can use a gig or two
To be a master writer tries the brains
A query finds and I do write for you.

This twist of verse is hard to write with grace,
I look to Bill for rules or I’ll lose face!

Pi (π)
Can I give a verse, disclosed so beings might see
Fully teaching innuendos, freshly informing, and oh but conveyed free?
Curved or zigzag look way too apparent. But is elastic?
Intricate, snaky? - or tortuous, flexible? Darn! I excluded plastic!
I reason curvature and similarly wandering, but rightly ought I
- throw meanings so - summaries fetched with computers spry?

There was a young boy from Phylden,
