"Scotland is / the petrified vomit / of a fish supper." Who wrote that little poem?

I think I read it in Harpers' magazine about ten years ago, alongside a longer poem with an even bitterer look at Scotland. Anyone know who the poet is? It was a man's name, I think.

On the bright side, now this page is the first result for scotland petrified vomit.

The only thing you should feel bad about is having to wait 7 days to ask your next question.
