Felino Soriano: Three Poems


Identified palm (lined fractions of whole emotion)
enwrapping tips of fully healed fingers
            touch of prior absence
condescends organic skeletal remaining focus

organizing reclaiming origins
desolate compartments fill with
isolated fondness.


        identify compliments with
recitation of body’s fragmented fictions.  Woven
                        fractured thoughts of wandering realities
                                    cumbersome intuition the
reader designates fabricated hearsay. 

The Musician

Deliberate function, imagination
flowered compositions
rearranged regarding apathy’s
fundamental apprehension, aggregate.  Hands
isolate occupational gathering
strum of plucking guides
enabling vibratory faith
into a silent disappearance
walking into halls of a home’s
designated setting.
