Five poems by Felino Soriano

Five poems
by Felino Soriano

Born Among the Dying

Reclaiming a discovery of
documented emotional mind
what once facilitated
fleeting forgetfulness, mind manipulation
has dissipated with recuperation
in regards to reasoning.

Spanning: the grace of a winged
equating to the opportunity
of a specialized light
hanging among a distinct facial
blending highly in the visible
mode of intricate elements, those of mazes
held holy
in the purification process,
rising from the subsequent state.



Requiring a retrofitted existence,
of multilayered visions,
he stood gazing
amazed by stuttering tranquility.

Versions of various languages,
modes of modal
took in various angular, episodic
toward landing elsewhere
among cultivated
cultures whose
did not delineate monetarily
but gathered in a fixated manner
to focalize on the interior motivation
of the intellectual properties
assembled throughout
the many facets of definitional



creating the once abandoned congregation,
streamlined diversity,
shaping angles of specialized momentum,
birds containing
purpose, rhythm, relaxation for the eyes of the wandering
the prototype citizen maintaining existence within
a boxed diameter.

Flight builds ability, giving to the
attentive individual
spatial identity,
shape among sequenced
miscellaneous movements,
etching across the eyes
artistic endeavors unable to be witnessed
among levels of narcissistic reflections.


Perception of the Paradoxical

Understanding the existence of
others' exuding humanity,
from dispositional happenstance
occurring diligently from distrusting
disgust of personality traits, the many
who do not understand
the directional corridor
of biographical invisible penmanship,
written in third person, a winged
being whose organic reason
of original birth was to mimic
and create mnemonics
for poor memory,
creating lifestyles of anti-impoverished well-being.
Contradictory followings, clawing to become
historical in nature
and an ensuing subsequent
dealing with burgeoning into a species
of discoveries tallied by hands of
formerly inexistent detection.


Yen Within the Interpretation

I interpreted the wind's silence
in a dialogue with myself—
whispered toward analogy's
turned circumference

"philosophical thought is absent
from the à la mode
culture of biased reality."

The wind returned with uproarious
fumes, delegating sway toward
vernacular of the agreeable nature.
Minute details began to crease into
magnified devotion; surroundings
solidified into tangible tumult,
allowing for interpretation
to be preserved for later visitation,
allowing for what was absent in silence,
causing me to speak in a whispered
conversation, echoing in a desire for
philosophical companionship within

elongated dialogue.
