The Flimsy Net

Love seems such a flimsy net to catch so much. So many beasts, capable of tearing a man to shreds, get tangled in its soft web.

Stories are the only creatures to escape from the net. 
One tells itself: 
To love just one, 
and lose that love, 
and find it fugitive, hiding from itself, 
terrified of each trembling reflection caught between the light and dark.

I saw it with my only eyes 
and felt it beating in the same old
heart that I found in a womb 
and lost in places where only the 
lonesome flowers grow.

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.
