Three Poems 


Felino A. Soriano


desire’s meditative motion


of this lyrical                longing or

hankering to dissolve              entrusted cycles of               noncompliant remedies


song or whispering long-arm warmth

engaging with waist of desire’s antiquated fulcrum                     reciprocating movement




gape of physical contact exposes void of modular experimentations of



touch’s singular conception




reliable methods: these marbled hallways

patina in the personal reflection of self’s

inward recollecting of odd revelations:

the hands, such holding acronyms


pave and lift with angled dexterity

oscillating tamp with undulating creative

melds thus

interacting with the eyes a spatial

clarity of need

in the alone rendition of horizonal





                        (in the aspect of alone ascertaining)


figurines awaiting travel



of an aggregated cultural fashion, the arrest and


occupation of cultivated blindness

engages as does mastication of


sorrow: the crawl of into marrow


unknown fabricated future


these watchers of one-eyed engagement


by wings of electric ascent                  permanent


in the landing disposition, baffled yet neoteric renditions of temporal


whose voices etch familiar narratives into

role of the genetic replication
