Felino A. Soriano- Three Poems

from Forms, migrating


night’s midday
           of sun’s elaborate
longarm                         walk toward a misshapen arrogance
                   caught within
angles of an hour’s curving

summary              (discover               delusion              , )

halved                   hours         relocating
distributed functions of necessary
reactionary fulcrums

           deliberate                                         hands, their warming friction


rise    ALL

toward syllables’ renditions of persuasive sounds and their
ability to articulate absence of what causes _____________,


Which chronicles selected
           more so than the

spectrum of attention’s familiar
connectivity?  Of

certain spirals                          containing dialectical diagrams
                                       paradigm progress                  (eventuality of the plural                                                                                                          positional
acknowledges hand
or hand of dual

understanding                                            from strength this tone and sitting


above what these

tenses proclaim as contextual correctness

a wave undulates within understanding’s evocation

orbit-sustenance                      tributary rhythm-hold horn-bell copper

smoothening                                                these textures tell well

alliance of mobile articulation


                   an after —death’s denial of what lived within
intuition’s role as modular performer,

—an expectation highlights vocal italics
readying sound as paternal designation, mobile            mature

posturing in the risen riches of admitted holy rounding

pivotal in each hands these
ricochets align with bounce
-bounce hankering of sound’s reaching toward
spectral understanding
