Poetry

Such torment

 

I found out yesterday that Michelangelo was a poet. You would think that humiliating centuries of painters and sculptors would be enough for him but some people are never satisfied. His first known painting, The Torment of Saint Anthony, is on display at the Metropolitan Museum through February 12.

I found out today that the first poem I ever wrote, Underneath, is published in the latest edition of Subterranean Blue Poetry. I wrote this poem in May of 2014 at a New York WritersWorkshop poetry writing workshop in a library in Chinatown.

Poetry workshoppers, I’m on the right

Below is the first draft of the poem. Follow the link below for the finished product:

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.
