Winces: Master, am I shaky?

Quakes, you have been!
Palpitations, you are!
Undulations, you will continually be!

Xenia Epigram
Please accept from me this page,
     didicated to the word winces
Used by many an important sage,
     needing a term for bounces

But wait, I promise an Epigram
     more fitting for this word.
When I receive a better program,
     for now it's just absurd!

Sonnet (meta-poetry)
Winces

So written quickly, making poets wince?
Oh no, not that! A term so strange for me!
These scrambled lines don’t hide my ignorance
So here I have a canned default for thee.

The valence type gives just intensity
Perhaps one day my verse will smell of rose
A graph and edge and node and scores are free
This early version here my scripts expose.

But pounding beats of drives do spin this verse
Until my program sees ol’ Bill, I stall
My random words just might involve much worse
The basic fact is easily clear for all.

My sonnets suffer now from you, my foe,
You test, you prod, and I do feel your blow!

May I make a verse, delivered so beings might see
Fully cheerful innuendos, plainly educating, and oh how evermore free?
Starts or quails seem way too absolute. But is dithers?
Contracts, jumps? - or flinches, retreats? Oops! I deserted withers!
I reckon squinches and sometimes startings, but happily ought I
- crank meanings so - allusions fetched with computers spry?

There was a young guy from Bacchus,
He wanted a word for bronchus.

      But then thought flinches!
That literate dude from Bacchus.
