Edwin Morgan

Section 28

God said to Winning: 'You are not. Winning, I mean. You and your lot Are rowing backward this time round.

You are unsound, my mannie, unsound.

Your favourite sound-bite, gay perversion, Is not in my New Authorised Version. I think you ought to buy a copy:

Squeeze it out of Souter's poppy. I may not keep a place for you To sup your heavenly honeydew. What can you learn from my abjuring? The last seat went to Alan Turing.'

Taken from Borderline: The Mainstream Book of Scottish Gay Writing Mainstream, 2001
