Ten foot glass doors

The architecture is something else

Iron lace
Sculpted lion heads adorning the sides of a
building that’s hidden behind cornstalk fences
Orange and palm trees
Rose bushes and cypress trees and
gas lamps illuminating broken sidewalks
that can eat you alive
Ceilings much higher than they need to be
make for ten-foot glass doors that
open onto balconies where you can
greet the dawn, bloody mary in hand
You’re going to need it
Relaxing is hard work

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.
