By Felino A. Soriano
You fill these hands
the way roads kill footsteps. An
is how you recognize home, : the blur
the beauty in finding shape
far within the tunnel held
close against your eye. There is distance
and when behind you
a bridge unravels
the way the dead
only return when the memory heals
from their leaving.
