What is the best way to implement polynomials with fractional exponents with SageMath?

I want to perform manipulations in a polynomial ring where the terms can have fractional exponents. However just trying to use the fractions returns a value error. Obviously I could just set the indeterminate to be some power of itself to eliminate the fractional exponents, but this would involve altering all the formulas, is there a better way?
