Before he read the at-the-time unpublished poem in Chicago one year at C2E2, Neil told us a little story.
Inspired by a book of myths and legends of Scotland by Otta F. Swire, Neil wrote the poem about a doomed saint, IN RELIG ORAN.
After reading some of the stories in the Swire book, he took his dog, Cabal for a walk.
"Sometimes, when you walk, " he said, "your mind goes into rhythms.....I found myself walking to along to the beat of the line: When St. Columba landed at the island of Iona..."
It is a thought-provoking piece and one of Neil's most beautiful word paintings.
