Boris Race - mouth grueling hand sounds

Author's note: "my idea of fun is to mess with imagination and make it challenging to comprehend. This poem is a sequence of words that denote sounds that could be made by hands. Because of its onomatopoeiac nature - it is really hard to pronounce without stumbling into mumbling. I find it entertaining."

Felino A. Soriano - from This How My Speaking Moves

Touch Sound Philosophy

         passion          pianoing into
the trumpet of my good hand’s attempt
at becoming translucent in behavior.
This duo of fathom:
two windows
two wisdoms
      :  mirrors into devotion I’ve
for my familial connection in teaching
my voice to move through a darkened
application of night’s ongoing streak of
achromatic monotony

Toward What it means to Never Misremember my Daughter
                                                                                                 --for Mia
