Felino A. Soriano- Two Poems

morning’s rendition of perceptual appositions

body, the bridge here fulcrum, fixation, alarm-emblem
soothes (subsequent to the juvenile jolt of dispositional hankering)
into enamel of percussion’s smooth patina

                                                           fluency of smoke’s
twirl dialect, the conversational
clarity of inward shifting of shapes           counters
altered hours and their angles of hovering, braided light
into the potential of poetry’s multilingual hands

when walking, an open is an aspectual imperative

the sharing of secrets

regardless of contextual content, systems
engage upon burgeons of ongoing
marrying themes are themes of
consequential clarities (in the hope of that moment’s arrival, untainted)
unknown though within
the sudden shade of fake
syllables, their breaking
from foundations of brittle
skeletal affirmations evaporate
clear in the meaning of nonsensical
