Irish poet and writer Christopher Nolan
died on the 20 Feb. Nolan was born with cerebral palsy, and typed using a 'unicorn stick' attached to his head. Nolan has never spoken, yet his poetry has been compared to that of Joyce, Keats, and Yeats

Hied, foraying, embalming,
Among coy, conged fir needles,
A migratory off-spring
Embarks on life’s green film.
