expand your vocabulary

my mind is as broad
as the vocabulary I command
and the distinctions I employ
and indeed
from time to time I encounter words
whose frequency of sense, say, defies my conceptual grasp
even if I understand its meaning(s), I still don’t quite get it
for I am unfamiliar with its niche of application
and it takes a while to appropriate it fully
the most recent word for me is ‘leverage’
