Three Poems by Felino A. Soriano

from Of isolated limning
amid a searching
in this dress code of summer
skin wears lessened fabric ated
forays              in(to)ward
display-case substance the trophy
never tarnished, exposes
fingered printed u-turn
the being of noted experimentation
sidenotes soliloquies of stubborn
enhancements                                        these
in the melody of searching
toward exiled affirmations
or brevity in the language
of improvised wings
watching as the butterfly performs
formalities here
long-from identifying freedom
and the predetermined misuses of age and
                                    this version of space
-expectation, existence, distance
I hear the blue black speckles decorate
contoured aspects of courage
                                                            wings these
lavender waves toward the watching of my
open-mouthed exhalations, untainted
delineated angles this odonate
swelled the swollen ring
                        halo ontology
                        flame in the blued momentum
                        figurative, pre-, though slim halls are
walking into widening varied interest
blur resembles foreign syllables
in the hover of waiting for
language to conceal uncontrollable
