Once heard old Edwin on the radio reading his poem First Men On Mercury. It was like listening to someone reading out a book and sporadically gargling.

Wee Eddie - have you been making any tunes lately? Monster Truck was class.
If this were the Seine, we'd be very suave;
But it's just the rain, washing down the boulevard.

He was hosting a talk about his work a few years ago in Coatbridge library, and my Advanced English class of the time (4 of us) went along to take it in. He was more than happy to read his poems aloud for us; with his experimental poems you have to hear them read out by the great man himself :D

Only two other people turned up, but that's Coatbridge for you 8)
When you're tired, and there's nothing in your head
When you're tired, and feel like going to bed,
Write what you're thinking, and you'll find,
You've left a special message behind.

I met him a good few years back waiting for a late night bus near george square. he'd had a good drink and so had I. he asked me who I thought the best scottish poet was. and we discussed poetry. he was a a very nice bloke. a happy wee drunk guy. didn't know who he was till I saw him on telly a while later.

I liked the poem he wrote for the opening of the scottish parliament read out by liz lochead on saturday . hes a great poet.
