A lot of stuff, I sense, can be sticky (9)
I believe the answer is:
Here is my best explanation:
'be sticky' is the definition.
('glutinous' can be a synonym of 'sticky')
'a lot of stuff i sense' is the subsidiary indication.
'a lot of stuff' becomes 'glut'.
'sense' becomes 'nous' (nous is a kind of sense).
'can' is the link.
(Other definitions for glutinous that I've seen before include "not easy to shake off?" and "Sticky".)
