Privileged to have worked with the singular Nidhi Zak/Aria Eipe on this Solus Nua project. The poems are an attempt to write from the perspectives of the two horses of Cú Chulainn, Liath Macha and Dubh Sainglend, and are generously accompanied by images and video by the artist Yingge Xu. The project is facilitated by Fallow Media, and owes a debt of gratitude to the skills of Ian Maleney.
