Glasgow Poster Poems -

The Subway Budgie

The posters were part of a series commissioned by the Scottish Arts Council for display in the Glasgow Underground but rejected by Strathclyde Passenger Transport Executive as unsuitable ('there are no piranhas in the Underground'). (see Crawford, Robert, Hamish Whyte, About Edwin Morgan, Edinburgh: EUP, 1990, p. 158.)

Glasgow Poster Poems, Glasgow: National Book League (Scotland), 1983. All four poems - The Budgie, The Cat, The Giraffe, The Piranhas - were reprinted under the title The Glasgow Subway Poems in: Collected Poems, Manchester: Carcanet Press, 1990, pp. 566f.
