I Talk to You the Way Other People Talk to God

I talk to you the way other people talk to God
In silence
Inside my head

Hidden from the rest of the world
With no expectation of response

I talk to you with memories that I believe we share 
Of little things:
A kickball
A piece of sushi
A street sign
A melody

I experience you the way the other people do God
I see you in a cloud
I hear you in a breeze
I taste you in my empty mouth
I feel you in my soul

I love you the way other people love God
In absence
In nothing
In emptiness
With the unquestionable belief in another realm where we will live together forever

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.
