look up any word, like trill:
 
2.
To speak or write about something in a highly eloquent or verbose manner. Comes from "wax" meaning "grow" or "become" as in the waxing and waning of the moon, thus "to wax poetic" is equivalent to "to grow poetic." Thus "to wax poetically" doesn't really make sense, as it would mean "to grow poetically," which isn't the same as "to grow poetic."
All you can do is wax poetic on your new computer -- let me talk for a change!

To "wax poetic" means to become increasingly verbose and romantic in speech. To become more and more like a poem.

"Wax" = increase, "wane" = decrease.

It has nothing to do with vinyl records and bullshit hip-hop, "yo."
"Not to wax-poetic, but your eyes glimmer like the ocean on a summer evening..."

3.
To expound on something in prose like language. Wax as in the "waxing moon" means to increase, *not* originally a reference to vinyl.

To speak in a very eccletic and influential manner. The term probably comes from the usage of the term wax, which is another name for vinyl records meaning that it is recorded and musical, and poetic, which obviously refers to the stylized nature of the speech.
