Felino A. Soriano

from Forms, migrating


dissolved habitual behavior.
Because.  Broken scenarios
played a tomorrow version isolating
water and an arid reprieve.  Flora
infuriated scentless paradigms.  The 
person drawing evil swore into the halo
far from the fling of cursive cursing.  Nothing
neoteric.  To the left and owl’s yellowing
permeates onto the sunflower’s same
connection.  To the right.  A father throws
a burgundy ball, waiting for the voice to
return a child’s absent laughter.


The scar’s search for
       good side curvature, with heal.  All angles of 
how light bends with hourly implants touches.
Fingers can be folded.  Durable expand
and the bouquet of flesh
moves onward
the symbolized smooth
dexterity of paralleled
companions                               improvised improve, asymmetry of memory.


A secondary home, this path.  Waiting.  While
hours expend mirage dichotomies.  Kaleidoscope
nidus transfigures familiarity.  In hoping,
blanched sheets bathe my ocular sympathies.  Shadows
learning their surnames, wholly.

Gutter discard

Imagine miniature sequences.  Unrelated.  Wind winds its surviving arm
creating curl and powered, oblong fulcrum.  Yet, the smallness is never felt;
it’s rather, negative in scheme, pulse.  When I explain a crease is a body’s
infant language, I mean fingerprints are cause for a concern’s unwanted 
birth.  I can then feel expanse, my lungs evaporating into the thickened 
prose of this life’s summarizing movement.  Plural.

Silent piano explain

Each palpitation, dimensional vox.  Obligatory etch, practiced stamina, stacked 
revelation, organic histrionics.  A habitual scene steals lazy leans, lunges 
(eventual) from the ear’s most gratifying expound.  Watchers.  Distance hears 
within undulation.  Time.  Young man, halo, believes these sounds save.  Why 
wouldn’t they.  A throat of bees transitions pain, absconds upon pound, these 
fingers quantify.


Of a memory renaming its abduction.  An oracle of tongue
portends sustained rearrangement.  Manifestation of echo
curls into collage.  Architecture of sound as discipline, as
color numbering numbed ancestors’ range of vocal mobility.
The octaves of stretched arms cannot.  What dissolves
also builds syllables to accompany moths.  Enraged ontology.
