Three Poems by Felino A. Soriano

from antiphonies & spectrums
through these trees’ splayed fingers
?frozen? loose, —(perhaps winter-causational)
disconnected windows
rename ability’s purview, the vertical body
bends in the slight slouch of the toddler’s
drawing s, the base, oldest, gnarled
or oil-brown, either within the parallel of
succinct connoted experiential language—
distance draws a disclaimer: notice-or
disdain a memory’s focal fixation into
rage or indifferent ambulation: understood . . .
I enjoy the light’s normal procedure: ongoing
entertaining spectrums of engaged angular
syntax, in the aspect of serenade these whispers
introduce eventual echoes’ access to fade—
within this noon of reactive reading, this repeat
of days’ rituals and ongoing plagiarizing of
focus on maintaining balance, thought or
meander move within, within
wander-thinking, sketching
characteristics of light and
fragmentary tonalities
upon recognizing
when watching, glances open-though slim as empty
homes whose corporeal experience
of/from wings and adolescent circumferences of
mishandlings ————
                                     ————errors sharpen, shape-arrow
purity of idea
lost-from identity misinterpretation, the centripetal moveme(a)nt
ranges, reddened flame compositional music
the centipede’s legs ignite among
a synonym toward unrecognized
beautiful in the contextual
pattern of range and somewhat
parallel as fixation
a multiplying motive spans itself:
cannot its version, this/now
interpretation — the language’s
fulcrum invites, incites what
excels within a watching version of
motivated simplicity, exceeding
virtue as rest, or visitation as
corporeal manifestation, rejoice
then when time’s verbal praise
relaxes muscular tendencies, and
the purity of comprised permissions
persuades within the action of
particular interactions
