The Look

It’s all written in her eyes
The look that cannot be disguised
A look of disappointment and surprise
A look to cut you down to size

 A look that means more
Than words can explore
The look that we invented words for
A look that goes straight into the core

A look like the scent
Of lost innocence
A look so profound
You’re afraid of the sound
That breathes through your sighs
That squeezes your thighs
And the juice from your eyes



The look you’ve been meaning to try
The look of goodbye

New album "Observations" available now. A veteran of NYC’s underground music scene, Mike Power played on the stages of such beloved lost venues as CBGB’s and Kenny’s Castaways, as well as stalwart surviving ones like Arlene’s Grocery and the Bitter End as singer/songwriter/bassist with Late Model Humans. In 2020, quarantining from the global pandemic he worked remotely with other artists to record a collection of new music called Observations, that infuses his punk roots with introspective acoustic pieces.
