Three poems by Felino A. Soriano

from antiphonies & spectrums

as when this mentions

each curl embeds a signature
erasing prior
           generational fantasies       from
figments and all aspects of
-imaginary spectrums

these curls are morning (pluralized among momentary resting)

inform the early-rising caws of
crows' separating curtain
                                                their wings revealing
splay as art as insignia's
contoured abstraction of sound
          rhythm's entrance onto
burgeon's reflectional
persuasion and
                                    realized recollection to                                 commence

Of an evening's version of sound

each aggregated evening
moments climb gates leading
into angled versions of light's
vocal insinuations

with legs of alabaster clarity
voices of gray and dusk's
wandering wardrobe
clothing absence in the
mobility of sound's
always moving reconstructed
rhythms --

these rhythms engage and enthrall and
redefine spontaneity's oval brand of
unsolicited becoming

this corner, then that -- paralleling faces

more than,                       more so than
forward-finding need to analyze an environment's
enabled tableaus

the faces
find their voices among braids of unsaid
the shine of tonal jewelry
enlisted onto physiognomy's imaginary
images, such in the facet of spreading jazz and
the wind's vocal cycles
                   onto these bodies and brand of
interactive leanings and prayer of prosaic curving
carving a hopeful mathematics into
equating collocated happenings, these

needed truancies from forming segregated
mobility among concerts of same-style
