Three Poems by Felino A. Soriano

from Confirmations
agency of hands
(, combat, shape, caress: paradigms of of/all connectivity)
isolated temperatures              teem,
tame-or surge in the handling(, or, mis-) of rain
each each/either
slant of eventual osculation
cannot contain symphonies or
a music of relatable
collaboration theory
besides: “my alone ness needs spatial time                              away,”
(reliant  much-too
this/these personperson plurals rise and divide their cellular connection
did you dial again, again                            your touch cannot from city/city
distance tough the faces feature
smiles of elongated togteherness
on thinking of
why trance?,? the memory
discards cluttered
physiological freedoms: affirmations
this truth lauds and engages land within
context of spectrum and ongoing
reductive impersonations
