Three Poems by Felina A. Soriano

from Quintet Dialogues
Of bass
tributary relocation
localized embodiment each section of bodied movement
adjusts to/of/at
approximations to an altered occasional slur, whispered
in the mentioning of this
upright embodiment of sound:
________, an exact performance valuated trusting metaphoric
conflagrations engage in the humanized
                        burn-burn the temporal
malfunction of misused vernacular
                                                               the unsaid mistake in tandem
on(in)to within
flesh in the varied
accumulation               regarding regardless
temptation to
excel beyond
surface-deep language of the a la mode
summer in the exhale rendition
            weakened in the September of swollen rain|s
                         such language
induces subsequent relief
as then or when-at Winter’s untraceable feet
dissipate into twirl of the hovering ballerinas
