Two Poems by Felino A. Soriano

A Moving Self

    Dance of what we're doing,
   dance of delusion of
       a miracle of music--

                                       of miricles I said
                                to the listener of prophecy,
                                   a truth was said from

                                                                     the tongue of momentum,
                                                                  bravery and speed to get
                                                                          elsewhere, a where

  to what acknowledges
truth as a valid self,
     far from what it once
   moved away from,


Sameness Or Of It

   Sway section in the mood
  to hear it, mood to lose an anger
      brought toward me,
     interior when I hear voices
  wander and awaken
 Sway is what I thought
    instead of swing . . .
each meaning can splay or
 to an interpretation of hearing
land and what brings gifts
   to my lasting listening--
   what's said and encouraged
  said and
      alleviated when music hears
 my unaltered version of interrogating
