Paint the House Blue
The years have dulled the tint, but, oh, when new—
Eamonn Lorigan is an annuated Irishman with a spotty publication history trying to write one decent poem every couple of days for the rest of his miserable God-bedeviled life in the obviously contradictory hope that he will thereby find salvation. Age has not brought him maturity and he tends to be the oldest guy at his local poetry slams. Eamonn’s work has appeared in such venues as Carve Magazine, Muse Apprentice Guild, Literary Potpourri, Literary Burlesque, Slowtrains, a Literary Journal, Phantom Kangaroo, The Beatnik, Poetry Super Highway (including the 2012 Holocaust Memorial Issue) and Loch Raven Literary Review. He lives in New Hampshire with his wife and two sons. Some of his poetry can be read at his website, Eamonnlorigan.blogspot.com.
