The White House Pub, Limerick, Ireland. 10 February 2010.
On a cold day in February I was the featured reader at The White House Pub, Limerick.
This event had been a long time coming. I had started my association with this reading event some years before, and had made it my practice to write poetry every day for over five years. Then, once a week, I would test out my new works at the open mic. It was a useful ritual.
The anthology Microphone On was another important outcome of The White House poetry scene.
