interpersonal directional distractions by Felino Soriano

crisp cling elongated shapes shifting sifted 
realities burdening impressions of holistic
virtual meaning, morning of magic-rise
ra(n)ge-purity realism personal persuasion
interpretational imposition this neglected
noise of nostalgia-chaos, culture-remedy 
laughter hand/s-on fixation fixing focal
ornamentation of show as fingering dust 
into angel-mobility of the halo-structure
italics, belief as darkness as dampened 
cloth on wisdom of the hoping’s muscular 
misdirection, rugged impersonal reflectional
symptoms, compressed running the body 
cannot wave into fanatic philosophies,
spasm-quoting familial forgotten
advice:momentum strategies pivoting 
across brokenness’ mobility of cosmetic
intuitive insinuation of dilemma as
dogmatic dispositions

Editor's note: This poem was a piece written in response to the song, "Paragun" on Skinny Puppy's album, "Weapon."
