Whisper, then the illusion lengthens
by Felino A. Soriano


Decipherable knowledge?  Query then this diameter of deadened sound—

                           romance burgeon handto-tongue,

                           satisfied unlatching naked (neoteric version)

                           gloss of glassy physique

handto-shackled momentum you've _________ stagnated profession toward a youth rereturn
                                                                                                                                        (saddened mirage)
trajectory known missing the energized then.

Occupation listening    gauged
reversal spectrum          speech lean of sudden elation, contained.


Morning this
anecdotal commencing, plausible cliché of yes

returned.  The whole of moment                         elongated fashion covering unabridged silence

                                        composed optimism.  Reliable __________, sustained

sustenance the body withdraws upon abstracted portend
dropped within delegated

mendacity (misconception, illusion, conjuration: incantation of specified overwhelming)



Bouquet of the welcomed sound
splayed separation's signified
clarity of departure's unobstructed
absence. Language silhouette
veiled monument token
confinement of self and the delusion
of defined laceration:

removal from compromised presence
corporeal advancement
deceiving oration, pullulate
interpretation conceivable relief from
articulated blur of human misconception.
