Felino Soriano: Three Poems from Of variant rhythms

night as pain or expanded musical infatuation

purpling of plurals: night, each-varied piano solo meander

voltage of montaged momentum

arrival of dancing                     diagrams              dangle

splatter (the of-beautiful-though rendition of paint-from

the artist’s intentional             abstraction of delegated remembering or fathoms
from-memory or

version of grasp of ideals!)

& with every notion wrapped into the palm of these moments’ elongated functions,

expose what silence
holds hard or
what silence held in a softened irony

mentioning within modules a serial designation of moving music

what comes resembles a purpose of onward recollection

onlooking does not proceed toward what the body cannot hold

nor does its presence precede what closure contains in the context of silent holding

then, of each hand and rotating purposes
present, upon grasp and intelligent manifestations

a wholeness of warmth from palm and palm-configurations
a lending to what one needs to examine each syllable
from/of tongue and the desire to engage with momentum’s
sometimes desirous knowledge to move
           intuitive to soldered memories
against patina and diligence of time’s circumvolving

Of figuring into such excitement

what resuscitates proclaims
diversion from a death
-near where walking awoke
from the darkened forensics
dedicated to obtain facts or
fundamental mores into
which notion does not
mention failures or fade-in|out
predicaments; the spectral
collaboration divides as
does an hour’s arrive/abscond
narrative, whole in which the hand
holds and decides, — . . .
