Where did you get the information that it would be *poeng?

The trial prefix is pxe- and the inclusive of ‘we three’ is pxoeng

I’m not familiar with the Tree of Voices online but that seems to be a mistake. At least the basic form is pxoeng, you are right there!

One could construct an example where pxoeng would be changed through the process known as lenition where px becomes p

   pxoeng tìran mì na’rìng, ‘we (three) walk in the forest’
   fo tsakem soli fpi poeng, or fo tsakem soli pxoengfpi ‘they did that for our (three’s) benefit’
