Painters’ Exhalations 499 ~ Felino A. Soriano

after José Lerma Untitled

In the correct light, her forehead
evaporates from the flaming fervor
her lips utter, sporadically. This
is why the light has to be correct,
near the farthest corner of day’s
smallest room. For here, near the room’s
tiny, crawl-through window, adequate
light can dictate an abstract appearance,
and her face, the face I find lovely
as auroras always find the eye of a
gazing fool, can behave according
to the moment, one of falling leaves outside
from the growing-beyond tree’s anecdote
for decamping.

Felino has authored 10 collections of poetry and is the editor and publisher of
Counterexample Poetics, and Differentia Press, More information at his website,
