Three Poems by Felino A. Soriano

from Of these spiraled identities


an aggregative appearance (aspectual, observable)                   arches


          arching (of the fundamental system an angle resumes, unheard —in the time)

                     away                or
toward an away rendition of
sound and straightened articulation these

mirrors of my looking refines the blur into

this becoming a.m. aims at an onward defining                    song of swaying psalms
etched into a delivery of notions

igniting consonants                           advocating       probability amid an opening of

dialogical sirens’

appellative context


the crow whose calling my window’s favorite song

                                                         in the ballad of silent interpretations

            with flaming fingers
                        range and its spectral thicknesses
                                   atop the curfew of my peripheral alibis

the language of echoes curled
into names and their local                 experimentations: my window’s breathing, near-pant

the hanker to absolve
serial closings

contained within an hour’s identified



with remedies a hand involves
finding                     friction (of the warming necessities, plagiarized)

                      delegating worded braids into hopeful-building

as do the determined

inferring freedom as the holding heliocentric values
change, incurring inconsistencies amid an outward ordinariness

oval (as, sounds)

ontological (as, meaning)

objects (as, hand-being-involvement)

and the permanence of proving inherent deeds in the dialogue of

vocal connection                                         transparent
