2 Poems by Felino A. Soriano


of open                        hands
                        flex in the sleeping aggregations of achromatic

                                                            hands enter gauge of spectral warmth then
as do smiles’ proprietary
devotion to
                                                                                    exhale oval embraces

Of road in the neighboring silence

restructured celluloid enables
prose of paused enigmas…

                                                                        either of the each rendition of throat/spectral speech
                                                                                    (as does the terminal approach

            confiding mathematics: inward into self’s composite interaction2) spoken
contamination is the years’ prior focus:

alone this
silent pathway
diameter of temporal thrust, of the questioning immanent relay, again
the subjective cannot commune among second trusting travelling

                        therefore reconfiguring
analogies enter                                                road of sacred road:

desire among echoes and intertwined

[Author's note: These poems are from my ongoing collection entitled Of these voices.]
