Three Poems by Felino A. Soriano

from Of isolated limning
on (a) reacting to her
                                                —for my daughter
I met you amid a photograph’s earlier presentation                profile
contouring into explanation of your face’s familiarity
                        the hybrid of grays engaged hanker to
view prophecy of the finished becoming (ulterior)
            perhaps the oval frame of the months’ teaching (waiting)s
would interact with the artistic dimension of language’s valued
personal excitation…
on studying
we find sense—the mathematics
“work” wandering into the self in
fitting, numerical order
I or, worthy of the I of a puzzling
rawness, searches within the philosophy
of interpretive devices and the language
momentum speaks toward
reaching or needing a spatial integrity
loses translation once the hand of a
damaging tongue
meaning into linguistic misrepresentations
reality or the supplication of touch
prosaic prayer un
                                    holding                          in the help-partition of the mind’s
incessant carrying and
the noted persuasion of yen, altered by text of a moment’s
realized alteration
                  if/when or simplified if
music etches into worded hands’ dimensional warmth                  crawl-through
eventual widowed window this
alone parallel of exacerbated
