 3 Poems by Felino Soriano

from Of these voices


indicative of injury or
range of the motional dilemmas

cultivated into holes of angled
radical partitions
opaque in the clarity of need
wandering as do woven models
sustained of the wholeness such
tongues desire, hushed


clusters seen by the radial
                        contained by interwoven hands
these hands such

                                    disparate philosophies of time then time’s
motivated structure:

underneath rendition of cold (yes, unseen)
darkened by soil’s midnight

                                                                        thrown or used as decorative

                                                resting in the forever meaning of forgotten


figurative examinations: mirror though
mundane in its geomorphologic                      landscape

eyed and softened script belief of
television trickery

use to determine followers’ misinterpretation:

a photo’s blurred
crystallizing into
                                                            fade and dusk of momentum’s unused
